Those who deny that germs cause disease shouldn't call their opponents anti-science. But that's exactly what HBO comedian and germ-theory-denier Bill Maher routinely calls Republicans to hearty applause. -Shikha Dalmia, The Myth of the Scientific Liberal - Reason.com
Fox News political analyst Kirsten Powers told Fox’s Greta Van Susteren comic Bill Maher’s jokes about Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin represent an attack on “all women.”

Bill Maher is no stranger to controversy, recently supporting the U.S. tipping into a recession. Now, he’s rejoicing in the death of a billionaire, who died on Friday at age 79 following a long battle with cancer. The “Real Time” host didn’t hold back Friday night.
“F--- him… I’m glad he’s dead," he said...
The HBO host claimed Koch and his brother Charles donated to fund climate science deniers, noting he was glad the billionaire died. “I hope the end was painful," he said.

Comedian Bill Maher was accused of racism after making a fried chicken joke to a black Republican during an interview on Friday’s HBO show of “Real Time with Bill Maher.”...
“I was in the CIA for almost a decade. I was the dude in the back alleys at 4 o'clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland.”
That’s when Maher made the joke. “That's where you'd collect it, huh? Wow. By the Popeyes Chicken?”

Even when they are saying the exact same things, Maher said, they don’t hear each other, because all Republicans hear when Obama says anything about race is “Kill Whitey!” “They don’t hear what Obama says, because they know what he’s thinking!” Maher said. “They know he’s thinking ‘Kill Whitey!’”

Last night on ABC's Politically Incorrect, host Bill Maher made an outrageous joke about hoping for the death of Florida's Republican Secretary of State Katherine Harris... America held the hope that O.J. Simpson had murdered Katherine Harris.

“And finally — new rule: Hey Catholics, newsflash — if the Pope can quit, it’s OK for you to quit, too,” Maher said. “As you all know, this week Pope Benedict told Vatican radio — you know Vatican radio, playing the hits from the 8th century, the 9th century and today — Benedict told them he was going to resign because the church needs a fresh young face somewhere other than a priest’s lap.”

"Wow, what a shameless liar this Marco Rubio guy is - Obama created more debt than Bush? Well, if you don't believe in science, why not math too?" ... On January 19, 2001, the day before George W. Bush was sworn in, the total federal debt to the penny was $5,727,776,738,304.64. On January 20, 2009, the day Bush left office and Barack Obama was sworn in, the debt to the penny was $10,626,877,048,913.08. As such, under Bush, the debt rose by $4.899 trillion. As of January 18, 2013, the debt stands at $16,432,619,424,703.06. As such, in Obama's first four years in office, the debt rose $5.806 trillion. Those are "the facts" directly from the Treasury's website. - Noel Sheppard

During his opening monologue, Maher mentioned Newt Gingrich announcing this week that he's getting out of the race and backing Mitt Romney. "He got the endorsement of Michele Bachmann," Maher said. "Also, Michele Bachmann’s husband Marcus said he would also like to get behind Romney."
As you may recall, Sarah Palin has a special-needs son, too.
During his performance, Maher chose to make a joke about Palin’s five-year-old son, Trig, who he described as a “retard.” The audience of supposedly compassionate liberals roared with laughter.
The crowd’s reaction was even more disturbing than the joke itself.

We’re both women who have worked in Democratic politics and the media for decades and find Bill Maher’s misogynist treatment of women candidates deeply disturbing. Coincidentally we both hail from Alaska — where women are treated as equals — so perhaps our threshold for this kind of behavior is less than here in the Lower 48. -Penny Lee, Kirsten Powers, Washington, March 23, 2012

BILL MAHER: New Rule, if Irish Americans can manage to celebrate their heritage in just one day, then Southerners should be able to do also. That’s right, instead of spending the whole year flying the Confederate Flag and saying “The South Will Rise Again,” you get just one day. We’ll call it “St. Cr*cker's Day.” And we even have the t-shirt [“Kiss Me I’m Yer Sister”]. [Laughter and applause]
During the show, though missing from Yahoo!’s posted version, Maher presented the Obama Super PAC, Priorities USA Action, with a $1 million check.

As Alabama and Mississippi prepared for their Tuesday primaries, the water was warm for “aren’t Southerners stupid” jokes on HBO’s “Real Time” Friday night. But host Bill Maher went a step further, deploying House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter to Missisippi to find out just how dumb voters are down in the South. Maher claimed that Pelosi’s daughter, documentary filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi, told him she “did not seek out people who look like what some would say [are] rednecks.”

Their behavior was even too offensive for Roseanne Barr who tweeted Tuesday, "I was really disheartened to see how Pelosi's daughter& Bill Maher portrayed southern americans-classism at its best by H'wood elitists."

David Axelrod will not be appearing as a guest on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” despite reports last week that he was scheduled to do the show in the next few weeks. “He's not scheduled to go on at this time,” said Ben LaBolt, the press secretary for President Obama’s reelection campaign. Maher, who donated $1 million to the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA, has increasingly become a target of right-wing attacks over the last week in response to the left’s attacks on Rush Limbaugh. Maher has come under fire for calling Sarah Palin a “c**t” during his stand-up act and a “dumb tw**t” on his HBO show, among other sexist comments.

But the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1 million to President Obama’s super PAC. Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.”

Remember the good old days when the family members of politicians were considered off-limits? That of course is never the case for Republicans as HBO's Bill Maher sadly demonstrated on Friday's Real Time when he depicted Newt Gingrich's wife Callista as a Martian.

It’s that fearlessness — he acknowledged that some people would probably be uncomfortable with some of his remarks about religion, not to mention calling Sarah Palin a “cunt” (“there’s just no other word for her”) — that makes Maher the most dangerous person in comedy.

All of You Who Harshly Condemn Anti-Homosexuality Religious Beliefs, Take Note. And same for all of you who mock young earthers, or devout Scientologists, or believers in miracles — and all who say that, for instance, racist or sexist religious beliefs are contemptible — and maybe even all those who, even politely, contend that rival religions’ views are wrong and will deny salvation to the holders of those views: The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. So says the Secretary of State, in quite categorical terms. After all, in all the examples given above, you would presumably be intentionally denigrating the religious beliefs of others: saying that they are immoral and foolish. The U.S. government deplores your speech.
