CLASSIC! Best Movie Joke EVER — As Long as You’re Not a Democrat!

Legendary entertainer Bob Hope wasn't shy about his politics and being a Republican. He didn't lecture us like today's stars do. Instead, he used humor. Watch him make this hilarious joke about Democrats!

Bob Hope’s playful jabs at Democrats were legendary. The late comedian sure knew how to deliver a punchline!

Hope loved the troops and performed his first USO Show on May 6, 1941 at California’s March Field. He entertained millions of troops and their families. He was so dedicated to entertaining deployed troops that the USO referred to Hope as “The USO’s One-Man Morale Machine!” He entertained hundreds of thousands of veterans who were missing home while they were abroad defending our country. He did this for many decades.

In fact, Hope was the first person to be made an Honorary Veteran. In October 1997, Resolution 75 was unanimously passed in his honor for his extensive humanitarian work.

Here’s his most famous zinger from “The Ghost Breakers,” a comedy from 1940 starring Hope, Paulette Goddard, and Richard Carlson:

Below is the transcript of the joke:

Bob Hope: “You live here?”

Richard Carlson: “Yes.”

Hope: “Well, maybe you know what a zombie is?”

Carlson: “When a person dies and is buried, it seems a certain voodoo priest will have the power to bring him back to life.”

Paulette Goddard: “That’s horrible!”

Carlson: “It’s worse than horrible because a zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes, walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.”

Hope: “You mean, like Democrats?”

Bob Hope was an icon, but also a Republican. However, he didn’t lecture us on his politics while entertaining. He would make jokes, but the only people who truly would be offended are people who can’t take a joke or laugh at themselves.

Bob Hope was a consummate entertainer. He could do it all. He sang, acted, told jokes, and even danced. Click here to see him dancing with James Cagney in a legendary performance in Yankee Doodle Dandy!
