comedy is tragedy plus time plus a heaping cup of misogyny

I let the audience be the guide. The bit I did about Palin using the word c—, one of the biggest laughs in my act, I did it all over the country, not one person ever registered disapproval, and believe me, audiences are not afraid to let you know.

    Bill Maher is a professional felcher.

    Aw, don’t be too hard on the li’l fella. It can’t be easy knowing that if he didn’t have a TV show and money he’d be getting less sex than a eunuch in Vermont.

    Short, unattractive guys like Maher think all women are whores because they’re the only ones that will have anything to do with him. Seriously, can you picture a real woman like Sarah Palin or Condi Rice with this guy?

    Mumblix ^ I can imagine a real woman slapping that disgusting little shit silly. Is that what you meant? ;-)

    And on a completely off subject matter, that I cannot wait to post somewhere, the mainstream media has gotten a Biden quote misspelled (yes, I’m sure of it). They said he said: “Biden lauds Obama as man of ‘steel’ in campaign push.”

    But that can’t be right, Obama is the “Man of Steal,” not steel…. shouldn’t professionals learn to spell?

    I wouldn’t bother reading past that headline in that link. It’s all the usual turgid Alice-in-Wonderland Goebbels-speak they are famous for.

    “Bill Maher is a professional felcher.”

    Excellent! That’s the best description of that little prick I have heard.

    Hey….shouldn’t that audience clapping for the “private citizen” be Congress?

    He’s not a comedian, a comic, or a droll observer.
    He’s a clown.
    No, that’s not quite right.
    He’s the opening act who explains to the “cool” people in the audience what the King considers funny.
    That makes him a jester.
    Do you find it… risible?

    LOL==> and then, a deathly silence descends on the streets and highways of America, as it turns out that….

    Not exactly apples=oranges, but the character assassination by the left to ‘Joe the Plumber’ honestly was worse.
    I’ll add one more thing – the left’s ‘do as I say, not as I do’ attitude remains consistent.

    Unfortunately, Maher has not been funny since “Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death.”

    I stopped watching back in his “Politically Incorrect” days because he was too politically correct.

    Your ability to rationalize your own bad deeds makes you believe that the whole world is as amoral as you are. Sum scmart guy, name of Doug Coupland
