The Execrable Bill Maher

Noel Sheppard asks, “Exactly how does HBO put up with this week after week after week?”

“The other good news is the Republicans are taking the loss well. Who am I kidding? Are you serious? No. It’s like half the nation just found out that their wife is f–king a black guy. That’s what really happened.”

Update (Smitty): if I may be so rude as to step on a Stacy post,

    It’s Maher. I expect nothing good from him, ever.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Considering how many on his side were threatening to riot if Obama lost, Maher (like usual) needs to drink a long tall glass of STFU.

  • rosalie

    How does HBO put up with him? HBO is run by people just like him. And MSNBC is run by people just like Matthews. Who else would hire them?

    His sadistic humor does not impress, but his audience are people who like sadistic humor.

  • JeffS

    Maher loves only Maher. In that sense, he’s a self-made man.

    Smitty, you’d best hope that no Swabians are reading this post. Otherwise they will be waiting at the gate in Frankfurt for your next visit.

    I’m sure they will be watching at Munich and Stuttgart too.

  • smitty

    I’ve met some Swabians, and, understanding the context, they’d likely use ‘Maher’ in that context to make it official.

    The Excrement Bill Maher
    There…fixed that for you.

  • Bob Belvedere

    But…but…aren’t you a swabby?!?

  • KLP

    dude’s bizarre when he makes any racial comments

    of course SWPL liberals seem to be going all in with this “ve vill bury you” vibe directed at the “wrong” kind of white people lately. They’re cool, they’re hip, they’re diverse.

    somehow I don’t see the high-low Bammer coalition ending in a new era of progressive racial harmony, call me crazy

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I first thought you wrote excrement Bill Maher.

  • RichFader

    I thought “Maher” meant “gaping vagina” in Irish Gaelic. No?

  • gvanderleun

    If it was possible for people to emit albino turds they would resemble Maher.

  • K-Bob

    Well, what do you know? Just in time for another ramble I wrote over at Scoops, in reply to a thought-provoking post by Kemberlee Kay on the inclusiveness of the Republican “Big Tent.”

    Kemberlee’s post is worth a read, because she has a slightly different take than the other folks out there claiming we need us a whole bunch of Hispandering, and we need it now!

    I have a slightly different take, and I don’t want to rehash it here, but I think I closed it out well.

    This business of the left getting away with race-baiting has been fun and all, but I say it’s time we put an end to it. No more tolerating their racial BS. None of it.

  • K-Bob

    Turds have a better face for TV, though.

  • K-Bob

    Too bad it’s not in the mafia sense.

  • K-Bob

    I wonder if the executive suite at HBO is as white as the on-screen faces at MSNBC?

  • K-Bob

    I think we should return the favor for Santorum, and rename the u-bend in toilets to “The BillMaher”

  • K-Bob

    I decided to take a look. There’s one guy who looks vaguely “African American” at HBO. He’s Henry McGee. He looks more asian-ish or simply foreign. Maybe. They do have some wimmenz, but all the other faces are lily white.

    Hollywood is racist.
