Robin Williams Plays William F. Buckley in Classic SNL Sketch

August 12, 2014

Among the many talents of Robin Williams was his ability to do impersonations. In the golden age of Saturday Night Live, Williams did a very funny sketch spoofing William F. Buckley’s long running program Firing Line.

I saw this earlier today at National Review Online and I was planning to embed the video here but WP dot com doesn’t support the format.

John Nolte of Breitbart points out that even when Williams engaged in politics, he kept it classy…

Williams was political — a heavy donor to Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, and Al Franken, but never offensive. Politics would sometimes rear its head in his stand-ups, but the jibes at Republicans were good-natured, not caustic; the kind of jokes Johnny Carson told.

Meanwhile, the leftists at Think Progress are using the death of Williams to push Climate Change…

Robin Williams In 2002: ‘It Is Beyond Global Warming At This Point. It’s Cooking!’

Robin Williams, who died Monday of an apparent suicide, was a brilliant comedian who had a well-known progressive bent in his humor.

He was not known for being an activist environmentalist the way some in Hollywood are — but he chose to make a lot of movies with explicit ecological themes, including “Happy Feet” 1 and 2 and “FernGully: The Last Rainforest.”

Classy.
