How to date Bill Hicks?

I enjoy how these people take old sound clips and make them into you tube videos especially the Mitch Hedberg stuff because it’s so lighthearted and fun (warning don’t watch this one if you don’t want to see JFK go down).

This one made me think about how everyone likes to say that Hicks remains so prescient. Sure, Tiffany and Debbie Gibson were merely replaced by Britney and Christina, but it occurred to me while perusing this one that Hicks’ material might possibly start to sound dated if we’d stop electing people named Bush and Clinton. The guy’s been dead for over 13 years yet sadly the names and even the places that we’re bombing haven’t even changed.
