Bill who? Oh yeah, the loser who was canned by ABC for his remarks calling the 911 terrorists brave.

I hope she wins.

He's always seen with bimbos. I always assumed that they were just hookers he hired, and not very attractive ones at that.

I know someone who used to appear on Maher's old ABC show. Their description: "Bill's idea of 'family values' is doing coke with hookers at Sky Bar."

YOU may call it humor, but I find it a disgusting insult not befitting the man who has finally returned dignity to the office of President after clinton spent 8 years basically desecrating the office by his vile acts.

No I don't watch leno or letterman, I can read.

I don't know what you mean by leading a sterile life, but I guess the implication is there that you prefer a heaping helping of profanity and lewd and crude subject matter in your choice of 'humor'. I remember the days when comedians actually were funny, not simply shameless and foul-mouthed.
Try watching a Peter Sellers movie; you won't find profanity being used. It is only a crutch used by talentless comedians to appeal to those in the audience who typically have a vacuous stare in response to genuine wit and humor.
Here you go guy:
butt
asshole
ass
There, that ought to have you rolling on the floor for an hour or so.
Now I've got to get back to my 'sterile' life.
I'll leave you to the den of filth you choose to call a life. You and howard stern can contemplate losing for another 4 years.
Oh, here's another good one:
FART
Whooooo Boy! I bet that would make Bill Maher proud.

Did you know that's exactly what Maher did, loud and long, at the beginning of some guest appearance on the Tonight Show or was it Letterman? He's an uncivilized disgusting creep.

I voted for Bush, even drove my 75 year old mother to the polling place to make sure she voted.

Obviously you don't understand what I am talking about.

Hatred isn't becoming on anyone.

And I don't listen to Stern, he in fact is raunchy, but I don't hate him.

Never mind, Saturday Night Live just came on, another show you probably don't watch.

Perfect for the talentless idiot Maher..

I don't think men GET any uglier than Maher, inside and out. You'd have to pay me that much to consider being with him... but I'd end up having to turn it all down for health reasons.

He is a shallow, insecure jerk with a quick mouth. I don't think this woman's claim has any merit, though. Suing someone for breaking up and not "marrying her and buying her a house"? Yeah, RIGHT.
