Wow… just wow. Watching Real Time with Bill Maher tonight was a real trip. Guests were self-admitted socialist, Bernie Sanders (I)-VT; Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times; Kerry Washington, Actress/Activist; and Keith Olbermann of MSNBC. We all know him well, don’t we?
The panel took on everyone you can imagine; nobody was safe from their wrath. They went after Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, Fox News in general, Bernie Goldberg, and basically anyone else who is right of their beliefs.
Maher and Olbermann said that people like Rush and Beck could provoke people like Tim McVeigh to do violence, and they blame Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch for even hiring Beck. Maher said he worries about those “bitter clingers to their guns” that Obama spoke of in San Francisco.
Folks, I really wanted to transcribe this, but it would take me hours to do it – I just need to get this out there. So, here are just some thoughts that came across from the panel:
Maher: Right-wingers are more dangerous when they’re out of power. Glenn Beck is so powerful, or else he wouldn’t give him the time of day. He’s a kook and a creep, and has a wild imagination.
