    I am not a big Bill Maher fan, but this is 6 minutes of pure brilliance:

    John Stewart of the Daily Show is best political satirist on the planet.

    Bill is right up there in 2nd place.
  7. i suspect at least some of this brilliance comes out of the portion of his brain he is not wasting on worshiping age old myths.

    Excellent post.

    Here's the transcript in case the video gets yanked (we all know that happens):

    Harass Backwards
    from this week's Real Time With Bill Maher:

    And finally, new rule: now that you've LOST, Republicans have to agree not to waste everyone's time spending the next four years screaming for investigations of Barak Obama over made-up bullshit!

    Let's not kid ourselves. The hardcore Republican base is like a stalker: rejection just makes them crazier. You think Matt Drudge was a vindictive prick before? His headline Wednesday morning was "Senior Citizen and Woman Beaten by Black Man."

    And wait until you see Ann Coulter's new book, "How To Field Dress A Liberal."

    You know there's loyal opposition, and then there's just opposition. Let's not do the Nineties again, except for the part where we have peace and prosperity. You know, there was an entire industry back then dedicated to making Bill Clinton's life miserable over expensive haircuts, and old land deals, and the Lincoln bedroom, and getting blown.

    But this ain't the Nineties. We've got two wars, a melting planet, and the only thing keeping the economy from total collapse is Sarah Palin shopping sprees.

    So you know what phrase I don't want to hear used frivilously for the next four years whenever Barak Obama forgets to put the kids in the car seat? "Disrespect for the rule of law."

    Dick Cheney ordered prisoners to be tortured by name. That ship has sailed.

    I don't wanna hear Sean Hannity say that "Barak Obama announced that his daughters would be getting a puppy. A puppy from where? Probably a chihuahua that came in from Mexico illegally. And how do we know this isn't a dog that pals around with terriers?"

    You know, when Obama starts a preemptive war, and then fucks it up, and makes torture our official policy, and outs a CIA agent, and purges US attorneys, and tries to put his cleaning lady on the Supreme Court, and doesn't act on global warming, and appoints as the head of FEMA an ex-dildo salesman who was his college roommate... you know, that kind of stuff? Believe me, I'll be with you.

    But until then, I don't want to see Republicans freaking out if Obama isn't singing the National Anthem loud enough, or they find out he gets his suits made in France. If he puts a moon roof in the presidential limo, he's not making himself Führer. He's just trying to get the smell of stupidity out of the seats.

    And mostly, I don't want to hear about ACORN. Your guy lost by eight million votes. Just because you don't know any black people, doesn't mean they don't exist.

    So that's it. No special prosecutors. No trumped-up investigations. If Republicans really want to look into something for the next four year, my suggestion: try a mirror.

  10. Bill Maher is an idiot.

    1. Obama will REFUSE to sign a Kyoto type warming treaty in Poland.

    2. Obama will keep KILLING folks in a "pre-emptive" war in Pakistan.

    3. Assholes like Bill Maher won't say jack shit about it.
