Bill Maher on Casey Anthony Verdict: Akin to Republicans!

by at . Comments

Bill Maher is rarely afraid to speak his mind. The comedian lost his ABC program, Politically Incorrect, in 2002 when he said Americans were "cowards" for "lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away," while the terrorists on board the 9/11 planes were "not cowardly."

Now, the talk show host is creating a scandalous stir once again.

On HBO's Real Time Friday night, Maher compared the verdict in the Casey Anthony trial to "Republican thinking." His reasoning?

"[Half of American voters] say 'I'm with the party that cuts all these programs for real people, for the 99 percent. Planned Parenthood, environmental protection, college, health care, infrastructure, but holds the line on private jets.' Voting for them is as stupid as voting not guilty for the mom who lost her baby for a month and went looking at a wet t-shirt contest...

"Yes, Republican base, you are just like that jury. It's pathetically clear who's killing the middle class but you keep letting them get away with murder.."

Watch the full monologue above and decide: Did Maher go too far?

Bill Maher is not only entertaining he's also well informed and generally speaking spot on, this time is no exception!!! All republicans and tea baggers think he's an asshole because the truth hurts. It's hard to look at yourself in the mirror when the imagine is as self serving and narrow minded and greedy as that of the obstructionist political party. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!
