Liberal funnyman, outspoken atheist, and perpetual victim of foot-in-mouth-disease, Bill Maher can always be counted on to spew the most vile, hateful nonsense on his HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher. Before coming to HBO, Maher hosted Politically Incorrect on ABC.
“This has become a kind of conventional wisdom — that the Republican Party has gone so far right, Reagan himself wouldn’t fit in.
…Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race-baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual, who cut rich people’s taxes in half, had an incurable case for the military-industrial complex, and said Medicare was socialism that would destroy our freedom. Sounds to me like he would fit in just fine.
…Both sides really should stop pretending he was something other than the man most responsible for our decline.”
“I’m okay with it now that Obama’s in office. I’m kind of trusting of him. But President Ted Cruz? Where this is going would bother me.”
“[Republicans] want a Latino to run in 2016, but not just any Latino. They need one who’s openly hostile to other Latinos. Enter Ted Cruz. He’s the Texas Senator and anti-immigration hardliner who leaked to multiple sources last week that he was “mulling” a run for president — which is how candidates raise money to run for president. And you can bet the farm that he will run, because he’s got Newt Gingrich’s ambition and ego mixed with the steely-eyed focus of a serial killer. He’s young and Cuban, like Rubio, but even Tea Baggier — and totally unwilling to compromise with liberals on anything, including eating with a knife and fork.”
“Congratulations have to go out to someone very special, in my life, anyway. For 10 years he was. This was a big week for our 43rd president, President Larry the Cable Guy. As you know, Wednesday they had the big opening of the Bush Library down in Texas. All five living presidents were there. It was a once in a lifetime event: a library in Texas. Oh, I kid. I kid Texas, but the last person in that state to get near a schoolbook was Lee Harvey Oswald.”
“Based on every statement I’ve heard out of any Republican in the last two years, the Israelis are controlling our government.”
“Rt wingers luv to tout American Exceptionalism – today is a reminder that so many of the things that make us exceptional these days are bad”
“All [Romney’s] charitable donations are to Mormons. He gives to his cult.”
“Even Rick Santorum was fascinating to us because of sex, albeit in reverse – that someone could be that sexually repressed, because I must admit, I never worried Rick would have an affair. I worried he’d dress up as his mother and kill women in a motel.”
