Bill Maher’s Gift for Subtlety


On last Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher was fuming over the looming debt ceiling deal which would not include tax increases. At one point he asked his panel (which consisted of Eliot Spitzer, Margaret Hoover, and FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe), “Hasn’t Barack Obama signed his own death warrant as a candidate for 2012?” Later in the segment, Maher accused Republicans of hypocrisy on the issue of government spending, saying that they had no problem with it until “Blacky McBlackman” took office. This, of course, is in keeping with the liberal media’s classic double standard that it’s okay to use all sorts of disgusting racist and/or misogynist language, so long as that language is directed at Republicans.
