Bill Maher goes on a rant against Republicans

Bill Maher goes on a rant against Republicans and calls them divorced from reality. He said Republicans should stop being bitter and clinging to their guns, religion and anti-immigrant sentiments. Maher ridicules people who want to see Obama's birth certificate, think American Presidents should not bow to the Saudi's or "be best buddies with third world dictators. In a LA Times commentary,
If conservatives don't want to be seen as bitter people who cling to their guns and religion and anti-immigrant sentiments, they should stop being bitter and clinging to their guns, religion and anti-immigrant sentiments.

It's been a week now, and I still don't know what those "tea bag" protests were about. I saw signs protesting abortion, illegal immigrants, the bank bailout and that gay guy who's going to win "American Idol." But it wasn't tax day that made them crazy; it was election day. Because that's when Republicans became what they fear most: a minority.

The conservative base is absolutely apoplectic because, because ... well, nobody knows. They're mad as hell, and they're not going to take it anymore. Even though they're not quite sure what "it" is. But they know they're fed up with "it," and that "it" has got to stop.

Here are the big issues for normal people: the war, the economy, the environment, mending fences with our enemies and allies, and the rule of law.

And here's the list of Republican obsessions since President Obama took office: that his birth certificate is supposedly fake, he uses a teleprompter too much, he bowed to a Saudi guy, Europeans like him, he gives inappropriate gifts, his wife shamelessly flaunts her upper arms, and he shook hands with Hugo Chavez and slipped him the nuclear launch codes.

The only thing faster than maher mouth is my remote to turn the punk off. Vote with your wallet and ignore idiots with a any plan who wish to think for you. If you make a choice acept all responsibity, and yea brush up on your science skills to refute idiots.

So glad to see how afraid Maher is of the conservatives. He really can't talk about anything else! I hope his mother isn't a "moron" or a "Zombie" as he called all the tea party attendees at the 2 million people D.C. event. When you have nothing to say, you resort to name calling - his stock-in-trade.
