  • Bill Maher: Governing with GOP like "rooming with a meth addict"

    While Bill Maher didn't say anything as provocative on Real Time this week as, say, calling the Qur'an a "hate-filled holy book," it wouldn't be Bill Maher if he weren't antagonizing someone, and tonight he needled one of his favorite targets, the Republican Party.

    Maher's main beef with the right wing tonight: a perceived lack of focus on real issues. He rattled off a list of what he called the "useless distractions that make up the Republican Party agenda" - they included public unions, Sharia law, anchor babies, the "Ground Zero mosque," NPR, and the "war on Christmas," among others. So bad is this problem, Maher said, that trying to govern with Republicans "is like rooming with a meth addict" who, instead of rent, is worrying that police bugged the air conditioner.

    Maher ridiculed Oklahoma for voting to ban Sharia when the Muslim population there is "rapidly approaching zero." He ridiculed the ACORN crackdown: "Republicans are obsessed with people cooking up wild, nonexistent schemes to vote, ignoring one important truth: this is America. No one wants to vote." And he ridiculed the New Black Panthers furor thusly: "Every black person scares you." (What would a Bill Maher riff on Republicans be without a joke about them all being racist, after all?).........

    I see, Bill Maher. It is completely congruent with the viewpoints in your posts. The cheap joke is good enough for some people....

      We have now reached the end of the internet. The premier idiot of our time, Bill Mair, has now been referenced on O.Com.

      Gee. Thanks, dlo.

      Figures it would be you.

        I'm glad to see you're finally openly admitting that you get all your information spoon-fed to you by TPM.

        I love that you've "graduated" from The Daily Show to Bill Maher. You're certainly showing us.

        BTW, how's "work" going for you? Broke any big cases lately?

          guh. I can't listen to Maher for more than a minute before I need to change the channel. I'm a Democrat but he's just as divisive and ugly as the worst of 'em. That, paired with his smug "holier-than-thou" style does not bode well for anything other than pointless conflict. He's like a skinny liberal version of Rush Limbaugh.

          The world would be better off without either of 'em if ya ask me.

            wow. I cite that website for the very first time, and you claim I get "all my information spoon-fed from there"
            You are demonstrating your typical grasp of facts.

            You end up "showing yourself" just fine. But I don't mind adding a thing or two now and then

            BTW, how's "work" going for you? Broke any big cases lately?
            actually, yes. Thanks for asking
            You sit around and smugly voice your moronic partisan opinions lately ?

              You've been citing them for years. You're just now giving them credit.

              I didn't mean a case of pop while sitting in your mom's basement. You are no more a cop than I'm a world-class ballerina.

              To paraphrase one of my hereos: I know I'm a partisan, I openly admit it. What annoys the hell of me is that you won't.

                IMO Bill Maher is to the left, as Glenn Beck is to the right.

                Both are idiots. Both need to go away.
                This show is awesome, wrapped in supercool and smothered in bitchin. The only way it could be cooler is if he was riding a unicorn or something.

                      When Maher first came on the scene he wasn't bad. His show was usually balanced. He would have at least one good conservative on his panel and the smarmy comments were kept to a minimum.
                      A Veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount up to, and including their life. That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact!

                        I watch Bill Maher from time to time. Actually, that's not accurate. When I'm on the net, I will catch one of his videos once in a while. He's funny sometimes. I don't agree with what a lot of comedians say, but even some I disagree with have their funny moments.

                            No. Only one is an idiot. His initials are Bill Maher.

                            The other is a reverent and peaceful disciple of the American way under God who has been fervently maligned by hateful athiests and liars.
