Political commentator and TV host Bill Maher won “Quote of the Year” at the Media Research Center’s annual Dishonors Awards for his remarks about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Maher – on HBO’s “Real Time” in September 2008-- questioned whether Palin’s infant son Trig was her child or that of her teenage daughter, Bristol.

“I’m not that convinced that that’s her baby,” Maher said. “It’s not like they’re not willing to lie about everything else.”

Bill Mahr is proof that not all of us are going to end up in the same place in the afterlife.

My favorite Maher quote is, “I don’t have a banana in my mouth. That’s my nose.”

Bill Maher is TRASH.

It’s amazing idiots like him are paid to voice their stupid, ignorant, and shallow opinions.

Bill Maher is TRASH.

That's putting it mildly!

I make sure his show NEVER get's a hit while channel surfing!

Plus, like Michael Moore and Bill Maher, God also builds a$$ holes.

Most of us have only one but Michael and Bill have two, one at each end of their human plumbing.

That’s not a ‘dumbest’ quote. That’s malicious slander.

Bill Maher is vile, vicious, venal, and vapid. His (growing?) popularity tells me much about today’s America. I’m losing hope.

Maher's comment about Sarah Palin was as sleazy as the one he made shortly after 9/11, when, IIRC, he praised the suicidal terrorists who perpetrated the attacks on US soil as "courageous." (That got him fired from his "Politically Incorrect" late night gig at ABC.)

He is so deranged that he thinks of himself as a comedian.

Good alliteration. You might want to add vituperative.

RE: might want to add “vituperative.”

Or, maybe, “very-likely-to-get-his-large-nose-broken-if-he-and-I-ever-meet.”

Another instance of Maher being completely wrong and talking like a fool

And Weir was the winner of the Obamagasm Award for his coverage of the presidential inauguration when he reported that the seagulls flying over the National Mall were impressed by the historic event.

LOL! Since I didn't watch any of the Inauguration, I missed that one!

Thanks justiceseeker93. Glad someone posted it. I was tired of being online and didn’t feel like chasing done the [characterization deleted] “winning” quote.
