MAHER re-Consevative Con Artists: Why not just hogtie your audience & steal their disability checks?

BILL MAHER: Finally, New Rule, liberals have to stop gloating about Sarah Palin getting dumped by FOX News. Even though it happened less than a day after Bobby Jindal told his fellow Republicans to 'stop being the stupid party.' That's just a coincidence; a wonderful, hilarious coincidence. Yes, it's true, Sarah Palin left FOX News this week. But don't worry about Sarah, she's like a cat, she always lands on her feet. And she's easily distracted by a laser pointer. And she shits in a box in the kitchen.

And Sarah, I know you're fond of saying, 'when God closes a door, he opens a window.' It's a quote from your favorite philosopher, the needlepoint pillow on your couch. And it makes me think of this guy (Glenn Beck). He got fired from FOX News, too. But did he curl up into a ball and weep like a baby? Of course he did, this is Glenn Beck we're talking about. But then he saw an open window: the internet. Who needs Fox News when he could take his patented brand of apocalyptic race-baiting directly to the fans? Who now pay $9.95 a month to hear Glenn, cheaper than a case of their favorite wine. And, boy, I'll tell you, that $9.95 really adds up.

Last year, Glenn Beck, made $80 million, placing him 11th on the Forbes list of highest paid celebrities, tied with Elton John, who sang at the wedding of someone else on the list -- Rush Limbaugh, who lives in a house that Elton John would call 'too gay.' I mean, who has clouds painted on their ceiling? I'll tell you who, con men. And con men, like Rush and Beck, are one reason the Republicans are in such dire straits today because they don't care about winning elections, they care about separating rubes from their money. They've discovered there is a fortune to be made by keeping a small portion of America under the illusion that they are always under attack from Mexicans, ACORN, or Planned Parenthood, or gays, or takers, global warming hoaxers. It doesn't matter. They don't want a majority, they want a mailing list. A list of the kind of gullible Honey Boo Boos out there who think there is a war on Christmas and that the socialist policies of our Kenyan president have been so disastrous that the end of the world is coming.

I'm not exaggerating. Go to any right-wing website and you'll see ads for prepper bags, for water purifies and survival seeds -- also known as seeds. And for years, Beck, Hannity and other radio hosts endorsed Goldline, a company that sells gold coins to frightened old people for twice what they're worth. Why not just hogtie your audience and steal their disability checks? After all, we are talking about people who will spend actual money on a children's book by a fat adulterer and a peroxide blonde from another dimension.

1. Very funny: Don't worry about Sarah Palin:

"She's like a cat, she always lands on her feet. And she's easily distracted by a laser pointer. And she shits in a box in the kitchen."

3. I've been saying something similar for a while, sometimes I don't think these con men don't even

believe half the BS they're slinging because if they did they would live in an underground bunker 24/7, instead they live in penthouse apartments. They're con men who prey on the weak-minded & gullible, selling ignorance to idiots for $19.95 a book.

4. Beck and Limbaugh are former radio DJ's who figured out there were a lot of stupid people listening

I don't think they actually believe even 10% of all the crap they preach. Most of the rest of them are pretty much the same. Except Sean Hannity who's so fucking stupid he has no idea that's peddling bullshit. Even Palin figured out there was money to be made by appealing to peoples ignorance and fear.

Of course, organized religion has been doing the same thing for thousands of years.

5. "I don't think they actually believe even 10% of all the crap they preach"


Beck isn't even a decent actor

His crybaby routine is so fake.

I think that's why they took Rush off TV too. HIs voice sounds angry but his facial expressions give him away.

6. Love it

For the right wing media hosts like Rush Limbaugh it better for their wallets because Obama won.

Also love the comment about whole foods.
