Yes, you read that right. Bill Maher, after the mention of Herman Cains lead over Romney, says Romney is the only thing standing between us and the rise of the apes. This comment was made during an interview given by George Stephanopoulos on ABCs Good Morning America, Monday morning.
If this doesnt make the headlines tomorrow, and if this isnt one of the top stories on the MSM news programs, we will all know for certainty the double-standard hypocrisy of the Leftists.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Yet, hes, hes still leading the field. Still is. I mean, hes starting to fall just a little, but still leading the field.
MAHER: But, thats just because they hate Mitt Romney.
STEPHANOPOULOS: They do.
MAHER: You have got to feel bad for Mitt Romney. I mean, hes been led, so far, by Trump, then Bachmann. Then Perry. Then Cain.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But, he kinda hangs in there. Hes everyones second choice.
MAHER: Im rooting for him. You know? Because, look, in a country with only two parties, the Republican can always win. I mean, at least he eats with a knife and fork. I mean, he is all that stands between us and the rise of the apes.

Bill Maher wants...to stop the rise of the apes, referring to Herman Cain.
If ANYONE on the Republican side had said this it would be news for two weeks.
Second to LAST choice. Only Huntsman is worse.
Hope this is picked up by Rush; Sarah; Ann Coulter etc...
Of course Maher will sing a different tune if Romney is the nominee, and starts talking about the Mormon craziness.
Why does BM want anything worth considering?
Obviously, there’s a double standard... and I can’t stand Maher ... but with that said I don’t think he meant this to be a racist statement.
Big surprise, that just puts him on the same page as Carl Rove, Brooks, Krauthhammer, Hume, Medved, and the rest of the Republican establishment together with the MSM.
That borders on hate speech.
If a Republican had said this the media would have broken into regular programming to start spewing how this is hate speech blaa blaa blaa..but when a progressive a-hole like Maher says it(This guy has serious and I mean SERIOUS mommy issues) its no big deal, hey he’s just a comedian right..Id love to tell him to his face exactly what I think of him
Does Bill Maher work for the GOP these days? He sure sounds like Karl Rove, Ed Rollins, David Frum and all the other RINOs. Actually, referring to Herman Cain as an ape is actually nicer than some of the garbage the RINOs have thrown at him lately.
Because Maher knows Obama will squash Romney like a bug.
Well, there’s only one other way of interpreting it, and it’s hardly less bigoted.
The “rise of the apes” is his Darwinian formulation for us ordinary folks, who don’t belong to the elite class of media moguls, like Bill Maher.
For me the Mitt is 3rd to last with Huntsman 2nd to last and Paulkook way way down entrenched in last place in the category all his own.
Oh come on, Paul would be fun just for the entertainment value.
Really,he sounds like he is on Fox News not HBO.
Seem like the RINOs can stoop as low as the Rats, but I'm sure Maher hasn't worked in years.
Romney is not everyone’s second choice.
FReeper poll results here:
If Romney was the last man on Earth, he still wouldn’t get my vote.
Fun and entertainment might be watching Gingrich make Obama look like a fool in the campaign. Paul is simply frightening.
“If Romney was the last man on Earth, he still wouldnt get my vote.”
I have 2 words for you in 2013...
IRS Audit... Even with the 999 !!!
OK let me rephrase that, if Romney and I were the last two people on Earth, he wouldn’t get my vote.
I remember when Stephanopoulos was Clinton’s little organ grinder monkey.
I think the point is the double standard. Remember the New York guy that used the word niggardly (correctly) in a statement and was forced to resign because he should have know blacks that do not understand proper English would be offended. Forget what the word or the statement meant. Or did Sarah Palin really mean to target Giffords as in shoot her. Of course not, but the media sure spun it that way.
Gets my vote for 2011 Darwin Award for the most stupid, naive, insipid, brain-dead comment in the history of all blog-nalism. Never mind that the author should have said "for certain" to be grammatically correct; the mere suggestion that, absent this new bit of evidence, there might remain any valid question about whether the Lefty Media are biased is so vapid it's insulting.
Beyond that, someone should cut off Bill Maher's coin purse and sew it into his spit hole so he suffocates gagging on his own jewels.
Everything in the news today is pissing me off! This is just the straw that breaks it for me today. I’m leaving now to get duct tape so I can wrap my head before it explodes!
Did he just call his boy Obama an APE? I think he did.
and a vicious, vile one at that, can’t stand that guy.
This is over the top, even for the racist party. You see how socialist Hitler and Marxist Stalin could stomach murdering those millions now? I do.
BM = Bowel Movement
The left loves Romney, they know he will bow down to them and lose like McCain and Dole.
Bill Maher is exhibit number one for the case against evolution.
Bill Maher doesn’t have the brains to connect his statement with the obvious racism it portends.
The rest of us do, though, and it’s time to use his words to drum Maher not only out of the business but out of polite society.
But what Maher said wasn't?
Since the prejudices of the far left are massively contradicted by reality, they need idiots like Maher for affirmation. He is to the far left what the Playboy centerfold is for teenage boys; that is, he enables them to pleasure themselves, intellectually-speaking.
If Romney were the last man on Earth ... there’d still be Michelle Bachman. And maybe Sarah Palin would through her muckluck into the race.
wouldn’t that be ‘throw”?????
