Bill Maher: Are we sure Trig is Sarah Palin’s baby? Update: Bill Maher, media critic

posted at 2:30 pm on September 6, 2008 by Allahpundit

Just asking questions, mind you, like those Truthers he once threw off his show. My capacity for outrage at his “used-car salesman speaking truth to power” shtick expired seven months ago but some of you will find this an invigorating mid-afternoon shot of outrage espresso, so I’m happy to play barista. Besides, it’s useful as an insight into just how stupid and/or lazy Maher is. This rumor was convincingly debunked Monday morning and conclusively debunked Monday afternoon, when Bristol Palin’s five-month-old pregnancy was disclosed. How’d she give birth to Trig four months ago, then? Who cares? The point is to impress the audience by broaching irreverent subjects, not to be coherent. Mission accomplished.

If you’re looking for something stronger, try this L.A. “Progressive” smear piece accusing the governor of Alaska, famous for having political enemies on both sides of the aisle, of casually uttering racist slurs at a restaurant within earshot of other patrons. Apparently she hates Eskimos, notwithstanding the fact that she’s been married to one for more than 20 years. I trust you’ll find it precisely as compelling as those Larry Sinclair accusations against Obama. Click the image to watch.

Update: Video biscotti to go with your espresso of Maher out-Olbermanning Olbermann.

He’s like a super hero for the left, but with no powers or motivation! Forget your brain on drugs, this is the left on FEAR! From your reply’s I don’t feel the need to watch the vid.

Maher got on my last nerve with this assinine stunt. I can call my cousins Guido & Vito. Trust me this I can get this job done for a buck three eighty!

Just watched the Palin appearance in Colorado on Fox, she recycled all the lines from her convention speech again. They’re starting to get stale now, they really should at least rephrase them. It’s verbatim.

Uh, it’s called a “stump speech.” All candidates have one. John McCain has been giving basically the same speech since January, with a few additions here and there. He used a lot of it in his convention speech. Believe it or not, a heck of a lot of people who come to see a candidate in person have not heard him/her speak before.

The baby is four months old and the daughter is five months pregnant. Even liberals are that stupid!

“used-car salesman speaking truth to power”

If Bill Maher and Keith Olberman were on fire, which one would you not pee on first?

Sugar Land on September 6, 2008 at 3:59 PM

I’d gladly put both of them out with a shovel.

Even if they weren’t on fire.

Don’t underestimate them. They bring new meaning to stupid every day.

The Left is going to portray Alaska as more racist than an Alabama Klan meeting. Having said that, just because someone is married to a part non-white guy, it doesn’t mean that person can’t be racist.

I am watching Greta’s special about Gov. Sarah Palin. Palin appears to be very pregnant with Trip in some of the video (shot after she became governor).

RIDDLE: You have a gun with only two bullets. Against a wall you have blind folded Stewart,Maher and Olberman. Who do you shoot.
ANSWER: Olberman twice!

sonnyspats1 on September 6, 2008 at 8:55 PM

This pricks arrogance prevents him from seeing what a mental midget he really is.

therightwinger on September 6, 2008 at 9:04 PM

Is he ever gonna have that penis removed from the center of his face?

roninacreage on September 6, 2008 at 9:07 PM

I’d say something about Maher being a horse’s ass, but that would be an insult to horses’ asses.

So instead, I’ll just say that he sucks.

ZK on September 6, 2008 at 9:40 PM

A mind is a terrible thing to waste but in mahers case waste waste waste!!!

thmcbb on September 6, 2008 at 11:03 PM

You need a spatula to remove his stupidity.

profitsbeard on September 6, 2008 at 11:11 PM

Why keep giving this a$$hat publicity?

Maher basically lives on Larry King Live — what is he, Larry’s nephew? — where he gets such tough questions from ol’ Lar…

Give me Dennis Miller anytime…

I wonder if this has been noted yet: Maher does a roundtable discussion as part of his stupid show, and for this week’s episode, the Republican for this roundtable was Scott McClellan.

Scott McClellan. That’s Bill Maher’s idea of putting forth a Republican.

McClellan, of course, hinted strongly that he’ll vote for Barack Obama. What a joke. His presence was the only thing I laughed at.

Kensington on September 7, 2008 at 12:22 AM

Wait! Wait. That’s not fair, and I was wrong. Michael Steele is also participating in the roundtable. I’m a moron.

Kensington on September 7, 2008 at 12:23 AM

Bill Maher is the Joe Biden of political comedy.

Bill Maher and Keith Olberman should start a Commune and invite the women of Code Pink, the Weathermen, Ariana Huffington and co., AND we cannot forget Ramsey Clark and international ANSWER to join them. At the rate those vitriolic turds go, they’ll start fighting amongst themselves in no time and we’ll finally be rid of them.

Nah, just a few fingernail scratches and some hurt feelings among that bunch of shemales. But I like your idea of getting them all in one place; sort of like a Taliban training camp. Just one MOAB needed to wipe the lot of them off this planet.
