Bill Maher is smart

This news about Victoria Jackson being a Bible-banging tea-partier is really interesting. I always suspected she had wet-brain, but now I have proof. How disappointing that I used to laugh at some of her SNL skits --- unless, perhaps, I was laughing at her rather than with her. Yeah, that’s it.

Bill Maher talked about this on his show the other night. That man is brilliant, and I don’t really care that what he says offends people --- because honestly, we’re the only ones who seem to think it’s important not to offend those who despise us. When are our left-of-center leaders going to grow a pair and start calling a spade a spade instead of trying to broker deals with people who refuse to reason?

Bill quoted Victoria as saying something about the producers of “Glee” having shoved the gay agenda down America’s throat. After having fun with this easy shot of a thinly veiled reference to fellatio, Bill noted that we should be shoving gayness down the throats of Americans because that’s what the Republicans do every single day.

Unlike the Democrats, when Republicans believe in things that the public doesn’t, their response is "f*ck it. We’ll make them believe." Like attacking Iraq to avenge 9/11, like convincing a country that badly wanted health care reform that they really didn’t want it, like turning global warming into a hoax. That’s what conservatives do. Relentlessly push, until the unthinkable becomes the consensus.
I really have nothing to add, because he could not have spoken my mind any better.

Wow. I had no idea Victoria Jackson was so . . . so.

And I doubt very seriously that she has any gay friends (as mentioned in the article.) She may have acquaintances who happen to be gay but I doubt that she has an real gay friends. Because if she did, her viewpoints would be a little more nuanced and her comments a bit more compassionate.

She's a dip and I can't believe anyone gives her airtime.
Guess the difference between us and them is, well, we're reasonable, logical, and reality-based. But when you're up against liars who will go to any extreme to push their agenda, it makes being reasonable quite a challenge.

Bill pisses people off but there's no question he's a smarty pants!
