Giant self-centered jerk, Bill Maher, wanted desperately to have POTUS-w/the-mostus, Barack Obama, to come onto his show. He even went so far as to get a petition to the White House going (for his f’kn’ birthday, no less). Maher obtained about 200, 000 more signatures than the 100,000 necessary to get a W.H. response. So, the jerk got himself a response and, after reading it, I’ll be done laughing in his face sometime the middle of next week.
I can’t stand Bill. Sure, sometimes he makes good points but I’ve got to throw baby Bill out with his dirty bath water. He’s part of the celebrity-ho’ machine, driven more by ratings than substance, giving air time to some of the most inconsequential and detrimental guests. Bill’s M.O. is to line up a few celebrity morons, sycophants and tea-baggin’ pundits to knock down and push around under the guise of discussing important issues just to make himself look good, all the while sitting there with a smug nasty-Nellie “it’s all about me” look on his face. I can’t imagine what an asshole he is offstage. Frightening.
Anyway, in my opinion, he’s part of the problem that makes it harder for those trying to make positive changes and progress in this country and around the world. I’m glad the White House turned his ass down and let him know just how much of a shoulder-flick he and his show truly are.
