Ponder this particular panel on Friday night's Real Time with the inimitable Bill Maher ...
Nicole Wallace, Bush The Dumber shill and (terrifyingly regular) bleating head on Schmoe Scarborough's morning roundtable of idiocy. A mediocre conservative National Review 'comic' whose name happily escaped. Baltimore's genius John Waters as the pop creative guest -- and Anthony
Dicque Picque Weiner. In full NYC fighting mode.
We might just have to start loving us some Weiner again if he keeps decimating fools like Wallace.
The opening segment guest set the tone, it was a liberal wet dream. Holy Roller and Defender of Straight Families, Ralph Reed, actually had the stones to take on America's Best Atheist. I suspect Reed limped off stage afterwards for scrotum ice and a shot of moonshine before sprinting back to LAX.
When Reed tried to assign Christian religion value, boldly Bogarting “over half of the social capital” in the world.
Maher drawled, “Ralph, I could list so many things that are bad that religion has been responsible for: most wars, the Crusades, burning witches at the stake, 9/11–I could go on.”
Reed did the obligatory Chrrrrristian Charity Fallback Position, “Homeless shelters–90% of which are connected with a house of worship, many charities … " [yada yada yada] Maher then dropped the coup de grace: “Of course, but you can do those things without believing in magic. And people do.”
Enjoy for yourself.
On the Infamous Five Bearded Men that hypocrisy dispenser John McCain now fears more than Sarah Palin's mouth, Maher was in rare form.
On Open Carry, Maher quotably opined that the deadly Strap On penis-enhancers should stay out of stores and restaurants ... after all, he doesn't go around randomly blowing bong hits at innocent diners at the Olive Garden. [Though Nicole Wallace was clearly in deep need.]
He skewered the GunNuttery as only Maher can. Bravo to Bill Maher for taking them on, how are we supposed to know that a guy with a military-style strap-on at Target isn't there to spray bullets in the Garden and Patio section?!
“You guys aren’t just firearm enthusiasts, you’re ammosexuals. And before you try and deny that you have some sort of unnatural romantic relationship with your gun, consider this: You’re taking it out to dinner. Because it completes you. Get a room.”
Maher Rules. Praise Jeebus he plays for our team.
