Under “Tasteless” In Websters

millersmear

I know as well as anyone that humorists deserve the widest latitude. However, Dennis Miller sunk pretty low with this riff on the Abu Ghraib photos. Maybe he was going for the idea that people quickly become desensitized to these kinds of images. On the other hand, maybe he was just shilling for the right-wing.

    Maybe he was shilling for the right wing? How about definitely?
    Miller is a tool.

    Dennis who?
    Isn’t he the dude from that crappy Sandra Bullock movie about the internet? Or is he the one from the recent Quaker State Oil commercials–the guy who used to pretend he was Bill Hicks?

    Miller is such a husk. Really, as evidenced by the lack of commentary, no one really even cares enough to call him out. Look at his mannerisms and you know that just being Dennis Miller is punishment enough.
