In the ‘For’ line, it states “KICKING ASS!!”

Must be that new tone Obama demanded.

Correct me if I am wrong, but to be considered a 'comedian', isn't there a requirement that you have some, small, connection to being funny?

” Obama support group “

Hmmm... Overeaters anonymous, AA, et. all. are known as ‘support groups’....

Interesting, in a Freudian Slip sense, word choice on the part of the headline writer....

Such people are big promisers, but often do not deliver, figuring that after the PR has died down, nobody will remember.

Remember when Ted Turner promised to give a billion dollars to the UN? After that promise was milked dry for all its value, does anyone actually remember the UN thanking him on receipt of the money? I sure don’t.

Isn’t it amazing that a man with his looks and personality can make that kind of money?

If it was possile for me to despise this asshat any more than I already do this donation would make it happen.

But alas, he has already maxed out my Despise-O-Meter.

And that goes for Maher too.

We can beat the chit out of Maher, correct? A judge said so...well, unless that only applies to Islam. If that is the case-- when do we start to think Islam is a state sponsored religion?

US Judge rules Muslims have a right to assault people who offend them

But you guys read this and treated it as though it was real.

Obama is in trouble and Bill Maher knows it. This is nothing but propaganda. The money means nothing. He is trying to save Obama from a complete disaster. Watch and see. You will not be disappointed. 1980 all over again! Just watch!

Who?

I think that this is the squirrely looking prik who tries to be a comedian on MSNBCABCCBS late night shows. Amazing that this loser has $1 million to part with for a lost cause......

This creep has a small man complex. His “satire” is not funny at all. Did you notice the lack of sense of humor among flaming liberals?

Extreme libtards usually make me want to smile and
shake my head. However, there are a few of them that
make me want to walk up, slap them across the face,
and pray that they would attempt to respond. Keith
Slobbermann is one such idiot, Maher is another.
