I like how W went side-by-side with him, that was fun. RIP you funny guy.

I've seen Dave. He and Bush obviously swapped places in 2006. It's obvious! Wake up sheeple!

/Still has a sad. 48 is way too young to go.

You know, as make up and special effects keep getting easier and better, we are going to have to have a talk about what blackface is and what it means in our modern society. Is it blackface if the make-up is there simply to mimic what a person actually looks like? it is blackface if a white voice is lent to a black animated character?

Billy Crystal played his character just as straight as this guy and got killed for it.

The term blackface has it's negative conotations, so it's best if we just think that slapping shoe polish on and going "oh lawdy loo I gots to get down to the cotton prairie" or whatever the deuce the slaves used to say, is very racist and unacceptable today. However doing an impression of a person of a different ethnicity isn't racist, even if you make yourself look like him.

We need to drop the idea that any attempt at "blacking up" is immediately racist. It's only as racist as the motivation behind it, not the quality of the make up, though good make up does go some way toward convincing people you're not about to say "what's going on in this.... oh lawd".

I agree, yet still find myself having a knee-jerk reaction against any form of it.

Meh, there isn't much you can do about that other than let your intellect override your emotion. There are a lot of areas in life where I am the same way. I understand that I shouldn't react a certain way, but I have to override my natural instinct.

Why are we surprised that a guy who imitates presidents for a living imitated the current president again?

That dude was funny, and good on Bush for doing that, it was funnier than most the stuff on SNL. I think Obama has finally gone power mad and is just randomly killing people now. How many will die from 'Heart Disease' and 'Cancer' today that will be listed as 'Natural Causes'? he's out of control! We're through the looking glass people!

For his funeral he'll be impersonating Ulysses S. Grant as seen on the fifty dollar bill.

The George Bush one was pretty good.

W has some comedic timing.

RandomExcess: Black face can be very funny when done tastefully or good intent.


Black face is never funny, but Bridges wasn't wearing black face, rather he was doing an impersonation of a black man and needed to look like him. Example:

Black Face:

cdn2.screenjunkies.com

"I'm f*cking Whoopie Goldberg for publicity! I'm beating all you racist hecklers to the punch by setting white people back fifty years!"

Wearing makeup to impersonate a black man:

"I'm probably being mildly hilarious right now, while offending no group of people other than lunatics."

He sounds like a very talented comic; I wish I had seen him. And no, getting made over thoroughly and well in order to play a specific person is not racist, depending on what you do with the act.

Rich Little used to do multiple presidents in the same skit, but only in voice.

More importantly, wearing makeup to impersonate a specific man, a man who just happens to be black.

Not a lot different than Snooki, impersonating those Oompa Loompas...

What have we learned here today?

George W Bush had a sense of humor and willing to go along with the joke, even when it was making fun of him... while making fun of Obama apparently means ending up dead.

/Probably had an IRS audit scheduled, too.

If he impersonated Chris Christie would it have been called "snack face"?

A statement from Bridges' manager said the actor returned from performing in Hong Kong and complained of feeling "super jetlagged."


Isn't this how the movie Contagion starts?

CSB:

Back in 8th grade, my English teacher was the type of person who would get offended by anything that wasn't politically correct. When Halloween came along, she was once again offended because another student (white kid) dressed up as Jimi Hendrix for Halloween, and had brown makeup on his face. Never mind that he was a huge Hendrix fan and also played the guitar.

/What a biatch.
