Bill Maherís Million: Comedian Cuts Big Check to Pro-Obama Super PAC
ABC News ^ | 02/24/12 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 02/24/2012 7:24:30 AM PST by AtlasStalled

Bill Maher has reportedly become one of the biggest backers of pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action.

The liberal comedian and talk show host on Thursday night presented a $1 million personal check written to Priorities during his comedy special “CrazyStupidPolitics: Live from Silicon Valley” which streamed on Yahoo.com.

A true story about a fool and his money. Personally, I think he should double down. Heck, Maher should drain his account to support Obama, and may the funny guy in November wind up with the same return on his investment that taxpayers got with Solyndra.

Now that would be justice. If they succeed in giving us another 4 years of obama, I hope they all end up broke and destitute.

Somebody pays Bill Maher? For what? I’ve seen funnier stuff, and better looking people, on the scooter chair ads.

Maher IS broke and destitute. Just look and listen, if you can stomach the experience.

Liberals have this annoying self-satisfied smugness about them, and when I watch Maher it just drips off his face.

In what bizarro world is this guy able to make that much money. Especially after “starring” in CANNABIL WOMEN IN THE AVOCADO JUNGLE OF DEATH.

The CS is putting his money where his mouth is I guess.

I can only feel 100% happy that I never personally helped him get that Million.

I wouldn’t watch or listen to that fool if he gave ME the million.

Proof yet again that a fool and his money are soon parted.

Doom on this smarmy little POS. Bloody, terrified doom.

I have never figured out the attraction of Maher. He just comes off as self absorbed and smarmy. Even if he were conservative he would creep me out.

The looong link below will hopefully take the reader to a photo of Maher and his check.

The ‘For’ line states “KICKING ASS”.

I am sure that Mr. ‘set a new tone’ will refuse this money.

When I see or hear the name Bill Maher I am immediately reminded of:
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God...... (Psalm 14:1a and 53:1a)[Must be given twice that we might not miss it]

As is: “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25)

I would guess Bill Maher celebrates his birthdate on April 1st (although he may have another birth date!

May Bill take heed to:”By mercy and truce iniquity is purged; and by the fear of God men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6)[Now that is what all peoples and nations can profit from]

I think Mark Twain was thinking about Bill Maher when he said this:

“It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”

“How did this guy go from a libertarian to a socialist?”

###

Because he is a habitually lying chancre.

He was never a libertarian or even a liberaltarian, just another comsummately ignorant, amoral, talentless Hollywood prick.

I suspect in his rodent cerebrum, the “libertarian” handle gave him some sort of “hip” cred.

What amazes me most about this story is that a no-talent jerk has $imillion to give away

I secretly think he is smart enough to know he would be an UNEMPLOYED jerk if he was not willing to spout the liberal line.

Remember the good old days when leftists in the media decried the toxic impact of millionaires giving millions to the incumbent president? (Until, oh, January 2009 or so.)

Good times, good times.

I think all of the overrated “talent” in the industry is aware of that simple fact: Toe the Communist line of the liberal elites who make careers.

Ha! In this day and age, one clearly doesn’t need any talent to make millions of dollars. Just look at the Kardashians, the morally depraved cast of “Jersey Shore”, the stars of MTV’s “Teen Mom”, Bill Maher, etc.

He’s a gun grabber and member of PETA. He never was a libertarian or had any libertarian tendencies to begin with.

My guess is that his libertarian label had two purposes:
1) It put in a position to oppose those in power. Shows seem to do better that do that.
2) It was about pot. The legalize crowd claims to be libertarian, while they don’t understand any libertarian positions beyond opposition to the war on drugs.

Reminds me of MSNBC allowing for Hardball, a Democrat hack show that should have been Leftball, but they obscure that to fool as many as they can into watching it.

Maher’s million dollar contribution is just bait to lure the presidential butt within range of his lips.

Bill Maher is sort of like Al Franken, in that his primary source of fame and success comes from being a creepy jerk that the left holds up as their political guru.

Question ..... what is the maximum donation legally allowed for a personal contribution to a PAC ?

What is the corporate donation limit ?

Bill Maher’s name is his corporation pretty much. Just wondering about specifics etc .... anything a socialist prick like that poser does deserves scrutiny in depth IMO.

How did this guy go from a libertarian to a socialist?

If he could drink it, smoke it, snort it or screw it, MAher was a libertarian. If it didn't fall into those categories, Maher is dim-twit totalitarian socialist.

At least he isn’t running around claiming to be “Politically Incorrect” anymore. I wonder if he ever figured out why most Americans considered that show to be such a joke?
