Schumer Defends Maher Because He's 'On at 11:00 at Night' MAR 11, 2012 • BY DANIEL HALPERS

ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked New York senator Chuck Schumer this morning whether Democrats should return Bill Maher's money. Schumer responded by saying "no," because "Bill Maher is a comedian who is on at 11:00 at night but has very little influence on what’s happening here."

Maher, who recently pledged $1 million to President Obama's super PAC, is under fire for misogynistic comments directed toward Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, after Democrats targeted Rush Limbaugh for his own unsavory remarks.

He is an idiot. Someone needs to keep this and make a commercial out of it next time he runs. Whenever that is.

They just won’t let it go. This is all they got. It has become their whole campaign theme to save their beloved Hussein.. Pathetic.

Fail.

Schumer is a buffoon.

With the internet, everyone is on all of the time.

HBO rebroadcasts Maher’s show all day long. It was on this (Sunday) morning. Unless you’re a Rush 24/7 subscriber, you’ll only get to hear him once a day during the week Monday - Friday.

“Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’” Maher said. “I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb twats, did you –”

I’m sure this jerk means that kids wouldn’t hear Maher, but they would all hear Rush. I would bet that more kids are listening to shows at 11 than are listening at Noon. I think school has something to do with it.

“If he is a comedian, why do MS/NBC and CNN put him on their news shows to talk about international and national issues? . . . (And yes, I am sure he has been on Fox News Channel . . . I just don’t remember . . . but I hope Fox never does again.)”

He’s a real jackass and attention whore. When he gave the keynote at my daughter’s college graduation last May, it was all about his life & “accomplishments”...

And junior NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is basically his pet lap-dog (oops, am in trouble now? ;)

Sorry, Shmucky, Maher is HBO all the time, they literally show nothing else, I mean outside of the gay agenda propaganda they run.

According to this columnist he is more than a comedian...

Bill Maher is a shock comic who doesn’t say things just to shock: He says them because they are true.

Last night, at the Winspear Opera House, Maher spoke the truth for a nearly two-hour set, and, in my mind, established himself as the pre-eminent political commentator of a generation. He’s a comedian, too, of course. But really, he’s a voice.

The concert played out more like a rally than a comedian’s concert. “Your new theater isn’t gonna be clean for long,” Maher joked early in the set, before letting loose a parade of F-bombs and angry rants that touched on some easy pop targets (Justin Beiber, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen), but were most concerned with weighty issues including gay marriage (Maher said people in the military and the clergy have managed to scare people into thinking that just the sight of gay people will make you gay — in other words, “cock is like dessert at a restaurant — it’s what they’re known for, maybe I should try it”); Democrats’ wishy-washy leadership (when 75 percent of the American public supported repealing the ban on gays in the military, it “was still not enough political cover for these pussies”); his avowed atheism and even Lee Harvey Oswald (“Oh, yes, I went there — even in this town,” said the former North Texas resident).

I* saw his lame defense of Maher. Lindsey Graham should have responded by saying ‘senator schumer have you no shame’. Schummer hide behind the Maher is an entertainer line. As far as I’m concerned if they ever accuse us of being uncivil we can prop up maher.

Tea-baggers have taken a gay sex act — one man dragging his balls across another man’s face — and somehow turned it into something tawdry and disgusting.” Obama was criticized for demanding additional “readiness studies” before repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” (“How do they conduct those studies?” he wondered. “Johnson, get in here and blow me while I fire this rifle at a target and we’ll compare my scores to before”). His assaults on George W. Bush, the oil industry and all religion (especially the Mormons, though), was particularly pointed in Bible Belt Texas, where even flamers go to church every week

he acknowledged that some people would probably be uncomfortable with some of his remarks about religion, not to mention calling Sarah Palin a “cunt” (“there’s just no other word for her)”

It is time to go Alinsky on the left over this issue! I say Maher is the defacto leader of the left.

The left always looks for excuses to cover up why they say the most disgusting things..they should just come out and say the REAL reason why they are defending Maher and others..they hate Conservatives, especially Conservative women, and feel like Sarah Palin and others deserve to be called these names because they dont believe in liberal BS

New episodes of “Real Time” air on Fridays at 9:00 p.m. PST, an hour after they’ve finished taping at CBS/Fairfax.

So, um, that’s way before eleven. Unless he’s implying, like many of East Coast Ruling Elite, that only time zones east of the Rockies count.

Real Time with Bill Maher is available on HBO On Demand and HBO Go — anytime and any place you please. Schumer thinks people are idiots.

It looks like the blue ribbon committee to formulate and disseminate Democrat talking points has concluded its meeting on this matter. Expect to hear the result of this confab over and over from the drones in the coming days.

The RNC leadership is pathetic. Where was this “leadership” when Obama and the MSM turned the contraception and abortifacient mandate and the “Fluke” saga into a war on women and helped drive down the female vote for Republicans?

How do we organize a national boycott on the advertisers of HBO and any other cable network that has this piece of scum on their channels?

Good point. About the only time I ever hear or see Priebus is on Greta. Other than that, nothing. They haven’t gotten a dime from me since 2008.
