Now here’s a class act

Topics: War Room,

Will anyone threaten to boycott Dennis Miller’s show over this performance, a la Whoopi Goldberg and Slim-Fast — or with ratings as low as his, is there just no point?

From the Washington Post:

“Speaking of celebrity endorsements: Dennis Miller, a big backer of Bush, was in Green Bay, Wis., yesterday to warm up the crowd before the prez spoke. Miller made a glancing reference to Whoopi but promised, ‘In deference to George W. Bush, I will try not to fall to depths that some would in this case.’”

“Then he went on to imply a homosexual attraction between Kerry and Edwards. ‘Those two cannot keep their hands off each other, can they?’ Miller said. ‘I think I have a new idea for a new campaign slogan — use the bumper sticker ‘Hey, Get A Room.’ ”

“The Post’s Dana Milbank also reports that Miller riffed on other noted Dems. ‘Asking Bill Clinton to write an honest book is like asking Britney Spears to sing a capella,’ he said. And he called strategist James Carville ‘a muppet who accidentally was washed on hot’ and a ‘Satanic Chihuahua under a strobe light’ who has ‘more nervous ticks than a Belfast parking valet.’”

“All in good fun, of course. Bush thanked Miller ‘for joining us’ but made no mention of his warm-up act. ”
