Met him twice, the George Washington myth of "not telling a lie" applies most-aptly to George Carlin. Carlin only ever spoke the truth.
TheSupafly
In one of his books he claims deodorants and antiperspirants are the same thing.

Yeah... so think about that...

I only liked Carlin when he was old like this and about to die. His comedy was finally distilled and pure.

allow me to take this moment to suggest that you go thoroughly fuck yourself, you cunt.

Thank you for reminding me that I'm not a hipster.

The cool thing is, it only looked like comedy. Don't get me wrong; He's hilarious.

But he was educating, and using comedy to make some unpalatable truths ultimately digestible.

Yes. If someone were to give an Internet child like you some raw cynicism, you would find it wholly unpleasant.

As all great comedians do. I think Stewart/Colbert and Louis C.K. are doing the best at carrying on in that spirit.

There will only be one Carlin though.

I was lucky enough to see him live in the late 80s which was sort of his golden period, in my opinion. It sticks with me for two reasons: 1.) it was George fucking Carlin and my body ached for days afterward from laughing and 2.) the opening act was one of the worst comedians I have ever seen to the point where I think, in retrospect, he might have been trying some kind of Andy Kaufman-esque purposeful bomb or something.

The details of being sworn in aren't really that important, what is important is that you go through the ritual in order to confirm that you know there will be reprecussions if you intentionally lie.
IrishWhiskey
The problem is that people begin to conflate the ritual with the intent behind it.

It was easy to see this in the 2008 US election, where people acted as if swearing on the Bible with specific words, and saying the pledge of allegiance with the hand over the heart were rituals were every detail was critical, and Obama's failure to observe them in some specific instances meant he wasn't really patriotic, or wasn't really President. Of course if they used their brains, they'd recognize that placing greater importance on the performance of ritual indicating patriotism, than his actual service, is idiotic. In a broader point this is true of religion as well, where ritual is generally treated as more important than the values the rituals are meant to affirm.

I'm going to give you five stars of bro-love.

Carlin is ALWAYS an auto-five from me. The man is one of my heroes.
