Hot Post:Bill Maher Thinks You’re Stupid



Editor’s note: This was the Hot Post for this week’s Concession Stand.

This past Friday night, Bill Maher broke with tradition. Instead of just having a panel composed of three Leftist yes men who hang on his every word, Maher had a panel of two conservatives (Andrew Breitbart and Amy Holmes) and one progressive (Seth MacFarlane, the creator of The Family Guy).

Things were humming along quite nicely until the topic of health care came up. Maher seemed flummoxed by the fact Americans didn’t appreciate just how much President Obama had done for them by shoving ObamaCare down their throats. Here’s what he said:

“It would be popular if the Democrats would talk about it more.”

Genius! It’s all because that Obama just hasn’t given enough speeches about health care yet. There’s no other reaction possible to such gibberish than to roll one’s eyes.

Then, when Amy Holmes explained to Maher that the Democrats had “talked endlessly” about Obamacare, and “their agenda was rejected by the American people”, Maher had the following reply:

It’s because they’re stupid.”

Here we go again.

Oh my–where to even begin. First of all, Mr. Maher, we can’t all be Einsteins like yourself. I mean, nothing says “intellectual giant” like calling a pregnant girl a “Hillbilly heroine”, dressing up as the late Crocodile Hunter for Halloween, implying that a US Senate candidate is a “witch”, or being a proud wh*re-monger. Mr. Maher, when I grow up, I want to be just like you.
