    BILL MAHER: New rule. Don't make me go back to my old title. Anybody here remember the 90s? The 90s, people? It was a crazy time and I had a show called Politically Incorrect, because back then political correctness had gotten so out of hand. I mean, blacks became African-Americans, Mexicans became Latinos and Indians became casino owners. Broken homes became dysfunctional families. Bums became the homeless. Crazy people became FOX News reporters. It was a tough time for comics. One young comedian even got into big trouble for saying the word chink. (Guest Sarah Silverman). Now I bring this...

    This past weekend on his HBO show, host Bill Maher suggested that conservatives were fine with the federal government until five years ago after Barack Obama was elected to the presidency. The headline of a video clip on the Real Clear Politics website of Maher's statements stated, "Why Were Conservatives Okay With Government Up Until Five Years Ago?" While Maher never actually posed that question verbatim, some of his other statements and questions lead to the summary contained in the headline. The video clip can be found here.

    Appearing on Fusion's "AMERICA with Jorge Ramos" Thursday night, HBO's “Real Time” host Bill Maher slammed "insane" Republicans for what he perceives as a sick love of guns. “Of course, I think the Republicans are insane about guns, because they love guns, which is a sick position to have in the first place, to love something like a gun? I don’t love my gun, I have it the way I have, you know, antibiotics. It’s not something I love, it’s something in case of an emergency that I might have to use.” “One party loves guns and one party likes...

    Maher began the monologue by declaring that America is “stupid” because 60 percent of the country reportedly believes the tale of Noah’s ark is literally true. He went on to slam the film Noah as “floating giraffe cr**,” but said it “must be doing something right” since it’s been condemned by both Muslims and Christians. And the fact that it might lose a lot of studio money, he joked, “may put it in hot water with the Jews too.”

    During the “Overtime” online edition of HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher posited that President Obama moderates his political positions out of fear of being assassinated, leading to a panel-wide battle over whether Americans are “subconsciously racist” against the president. While lamenting with Oliver Stone about the short political career of John F. Kennedy, Maher suggested that bold leaders like JFK “always seem to, at the end of the day, get cut out of the picture, violently or otherwise. And maybe that is why Barack Obama is more of a centrist than we want him to be?” “You think that?”

His memo lends credence to my concern that the UNC system has become little more than a political lobby for the Democratic legislative agenda. Thus I will soon propose that we rename our school DNC-Wilmington to reflect the fact that it is an institution committed to politics rather than honest intellectual inquiry.

So Maher gets to say what Geller does and would say, without having Levin immediately dismiss the truth as...

While pontificating on the personality of the president, he wished Obama were more like Suge Knight, gangster thug and criminal, and less like Wayne Brady, successful, law-abiding entertainer. For those of you unfamiliar with the gangster rap world, Knight was guilty of many crimes, including theft, assault, and weapons charges. For more on him, just read his Wikipedia entry to be thoroughly disgusted. Maher clearly believes a person can’t be truly considered black unless he has a criminal record. Wayne Brady, who...

    During a heated discussion on Fast & Furious on HBO's "Real Time" where guest panelist Rachel Maddow, of MSNBC, accused Republicans of going after the Obama administration and the Holder Justice Department because they believe it is a conspiracy to install tougher restrictions on gun ownership, and host Bill Maher tried to delegitimize the investigation as political in nature, fellow panelist Nick Gillespie, of Reason, accused them of being the partisans. Gillespie asked Maddow and Maher, who claim not to be partisan themselves, to name one elected Republican they agree with. The duo could not, instead they said it is...

    One of the finest examples of how liberal media members really don't know what they're talking about occurred on HBO's Real Time Friday when Reason's Nick Gillespie gave a much-needed education to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and host Bill Maher on the issue of Fast and Furious. In the end, Maddow and Maher embarrassed themselves in a fashion that should have both of their respective networks seriously concerned about their qualifications to disseminate information to the public (video follows with transcript and commentary): Reason's Nick Gillespie Schools Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher on Fast and Furious RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC: I think...

    Bill Maher on Monday called the GOP the “Party of the Apes” and ripped Republicans for not repudiating Rep. Allen West — who, the comedian suggested, should be taken to a mental hospital. “[T]he idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horsesh*t and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it. Or as I like to call it, ‘The Rise of the Party of the Apes,’” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” wrote on his blog. Maher singled out two...

    Now that Bill Maher has obtained a minority interest in the NY Mets, surely there will be some changes made to bring the team in line with what is most important to Bill. Rumor has it, these changes are under consideration: ;-) All employees will receive equal pay, from management to players to ticket takers. No player will be allowed to have greater accomplishments than any other. If a pitcher throws a no-hitter, he must not do so again until all the other pitchers have also done it. All genders, ethnicities, races, and sexual preferences will be equally represented on...

    I forced myself to watch Bill Maher this Friday as I was trying to chart out this column. Thankfully I hadn’t just eaten. It was sickening to listen as cerebral dwarves Maher and some not-so-bright jackass from the fascist rag The Nation talked about how Republicans and the Tea Party are evil and the cause of all our economic problems while Rhodes Scholar and former U.S. Sen. Bill Bradley, D-N.J. sat there smirking like a broken Muppet. The world in which progressives live makes the world J.K. Rowling created for Harry Potter seem normal. And it wasn’t just the economy...
