Bill Maher: Laura Bush Like 'Hitler's Dog'

Monday, Sept. 26, 2005 7:39 p.m. EDT Bill Maher: Laura Bush Like 'Hitler's Dog'

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher compared First Lady Laura Bush to "Hitler's dog" during his Friday night cablecast, after flashing a parody photo of Mrs. Bush with a black eye, as if she'd been a victim of domestic abuse.

After the photo display, Maher was challenged by guest panelist Christopher Hitchens, who told him: "It must be to [George Bush's] credit he got Laura Bush to marry him. She's an absolutely extraordinary woman."

To that, Maher replied: "Oh, come on. That's like Hitler's dog loved him. That is the silliest reason. ..."

"I think tomorrow you might be sorry you said that. Laura Bush is very gentle and talented," Hitchens warned.

With that Maher retreated a bit, insisting: "That's not what I'm saying, of course she is. But the idea that we somehow humanize any person because somebody else loves them is

ridiculous."

The outrageous exchange, reported exclusively by NewsMax contributor Steve Malzberg in his latest column, "Laura Bush and Hitler's Dog" - wasn't the worst to come from Maher's show lately.

The week before, "Real Time" guest George Carlin announced that he had a pet name for former first lady Barbara Bush.

"The Silver D - - - - e bag, I call her," Carlin announced as Maher's audience erupted in laughter.

For more details on Bill Maher's noxious outburst, including the Hitchens' quote that cut him down to size, go to www.newsmax.com/malzberg.

That's not the worst he said or did. He showed another photo of Laura with two black eyes. The moron was commenting about an article in the Enquire that accuses the President of drinking again. He thought it funny so he flashed a picture of Mrs. Bush with black eyes as if proof of the accusation was true. This is all so disgraceful and especially for women who REALLY ARE beaten by drunken husbands. This man has no shame.

I would much rather have Benedict Arnold as a neighbor than Maher.

He is one of those rare people who is as near as I can tell, 100% scum.

Maher is a self-impressed piece of trash, and Carlin is just a dried up old doper. Both have already wasted way too much space and atmosphere.

"But the idea that we somehow humanize any person because somebody else loves them is ridiculous."
...

Because Bill detached-sociopath Maher has never experienced paternal/maternal love doesn't make him an expert on love period. Maher is the epitome of a thing disguised as a human who makes excuses for paying for sex and calling it "love making" because he is void of intimacy and joy. He's a souless joke used as filler when fodder has been spread thin. He projects every time he opens his gaping mouth.

This is revolting, even for Bill Maher.

Ann Coulter, a friend of his, defended him the last time he put his foot in his mouth. I hope she doesn't try to defend him this time, as his remarks were indefensable.

These Hollywad Lefties talk tough and trashy about the President and/or our military, but they wouldn't dare get up on stage and spew their garbage in a bar full of Marines just back from Iraq.

Put Maher in front of his Kool-Aid swilling audience of "dope-smoking slackers" (Bill O'Reilly's term, for the Daily Show audience anyway) and he thinks his sh#t don't smell. Drop Maher in Fallujah with an M-16 and he'd have nothing but sh#t in his pants as ran looking for the nearest Marines to protect his sorry @ss.

The left is reaching for the bottom so they can hit it and begin to heal...

Unfortunately, the downward path they are on does not have a bottom. IMO, they will ride this rail...to hell.

They know no shame...they have lost all concept of dignity.

Tell me I am wrong!

I always chuckle when I hear Bill Maher described as a Libertarian. He's a Libertarian like John Birch was a Chi-Com. As far as George Carlin goes, at the beginning of his career, he was a comedic genius. Now he is just a pitiful old misanthrope. I think his wife's death embittered him

Bill Maher is one of the most unfunny people on the face of the earth. His jokes are not funny about anything or anyone. I listened to a stand up routine of his once where he joked about Democrats a lot - didn't laugh a single time. He's not funny.

Nobody watches his show. Libs won't fork over the extra money for premium channels. Well-off conservatives who can afford HBO won't watch the show. Even when his show was free, there was little interest in the rantings of a grey-skinned, putty-nosed, chicken-chested freak.

"George W. Bush is saving your ass, whether you like it or not." I agree with that statement. Laura Bush is a special lady and I'll tell you how I know that. My wife has kept me for thirty five years and I know a great lady when I see one because of the one that kept me.

Actually I agree with this - he's quite right. I think his earlier comments were stupid, but the principle of this statement is quite true. Plenty of venomous folk had loved ones who returned their love....

It's okay for the socialist liberal hate mongers to talk about a Republican president's wife like that, but just let republican commentators say anything and we are the most vile vermin on earth.

But, I'm sure even they have their own private opinions about Ter-AY-za Hind-end Kerry and Hitlery Clinton that aren't too flattering.

P.S. I bet Al Gore runs again in 2008 and wins. I can't see McCain as a contender

Always amazes me when I channel surf and run across Mahers show that the audience is so attuned to his bs. Laughter at the most vile and degrading humor. And then they wonder why their party is powerless and in the process of self destruction.

You agree with this statement? It is the most stupid thing I ever heard. Maher thinks we like the President because of Laura. The man is so separated from reality its stunning. The only place he can seem to relate to is S.F. (and probably N.O.). And we all know the moral and realities of those sewers.

Whould someone point me to Maher's Crack dealer... you don't humanize someone unless you don't veiw people as human in the first place. If Maher feels that the Bushes or others are not human or humane just because of political views scares me... he is a mouth piece of the radical left and this is how dementated they have gotten. What next Mr. Maher? Are you really going to go around the bend and advocate violence against people just based on their differences from you. I am waiting for the day that I hear he has been sued for slander. I have a feeling that I will hear that his show has been cancelled again first though.

I don't think Mahr would understand freepers, nor his listeners.

Here's a good question: If Mahr did not make fun of Bush, how many people would listen to him?

zero.

He needs Bush to make money.

Try to imagine the MSM's outrage if a "B-list" conservative comedian, like Dennis Miller or Mort Sahl, had pulled out a photo of Hillary (or for that matter Bill) Clinton, with a fake black eye, and had said that the president's SPOUSE's love is no more significant than that of a (or Hitler's) dog.

Imagine THAT reaction. Oh, but because the MSM largely hates Bush, this sort of beyond-the-pale behavior is not "news."

Firing Maher was seemingly one of the few correct decisions Disney head Michael Eisner has made in the past 12 years.
