Bill Maher likens axed Palin to Glenn Beck: "Maybe itís not so great that Palin is out of Fox News"

On his talk show ‘Real Time with Bill Maher,’ Bill Maher explained how Sarah Palin being fired from Fox News may not be the somewhat comforting news that liberals were enjoying.

Maher instead likens Palin to other axed Fox News personality, Glenn Beck. After exiting Fox News, Beck took "patented brand of apocalyptic race baiting" (according to Maher) and went on to create his own web series that charges people $10 a month.

Last year, Beck made $80 million, landing him in seventh place on the Forbes wealthiest celebrities. Thus, Maher slams such pundits as “con men.”

Says Maher, "They don't care about winning elections; they care about separating rubes from their money. They discovered that there's a fortune to be made by keeping a small portion of America under the illusion that they are always under attack, from Mexicans or ACORN or Planned Parenthood or gays or takers, global warming hoaxers; it doesn't matter.”

“They don't want a majority; they want a mailing list...

As I understand it, Sarah Palin turned the contract down.

Beck should see if she’s interested in a regular spot she can do from Alaska.

Palin’s tag for a show can be. “I’m Sarah Palin and I can see America from my front porch”

We have not seen the end of Sarah Palin-—her fate is with the Revived Tea Party and the coming Liberty Party—and the sons of Liberty. Watch and see as the Tea Party Strikes back!

Glenn Beck reinvested nearly all of his earnings into building an internet communications network, attracting both viewers and advertisers, creating hundreds of new jobs in the process and making Fascist butt-sniffers and celebrity chasers like Maher irrelevant.

I know that Beck’s eventual goal is to bring his network to cable nationwide but it takes time. I know its already available on some satellite.

Maher is just jealous and whiny. Its also important to note that Maher does get paid and much of that money probably comes from people who don’t even know who he is.

I think liberals are so far gone not even a sock puppet reenactment would convince them..idiots believe what they want to believe. Sarah Palin has and always will live rent free in their heads 24/7

America is under velvet assault by Socialists. It is an inconvenient truth.

Maher is a name-calling bully who works for Time-Lies-Warner-Turner, a network monopoly known for making it up and bigotry.

They don't care about winning elections; they care about separating rubes from their money.

Maher has mistaken Palin for Karl Rove.
