Bill Maher had this conservative quack job on tonight...
Watched Bill Maher tonight, it may have been a repeat, I am not sure because it was recorded and I didn't pay attention to when.

Tonight he had Dennis Kucinich on and the panel consisted of Richard Belzar, Jamie _____ (an NPR journalist who was in Baghdad and wrote a book about it) and some large conservative white woman who, for some time has been hitting the Kool-Aid...HARD!

So, the token conservative woman repeated these absurdities, um, let me think, like we are not in Iraq for the oil (BTW, according to her that is an idea from the Rosie O'Donnell school of something or another); another was that the firing of the US Attorney's happens all the time and they were "political jobs." WRONG!

Well, I can't remember all the doozies she said, but I do remember this. According to this idiot woman, the failure in Iraq is Harry Reid's fault because he called it a failure.

I see, so Harry Reid calls the duck a duck and the fantasy of the duck being a goose is gone. Or, in other words, somebody has the nerve to call this spade a spade and the 6 years of policy blunders, no wait, pillaging and plundering are the fault of the person who calls it like it is.

Whatever you crazy conservative freak show. Don't bother with the facts, I know they FU__ up your perfectly good fiction. Let's send the Bushies to Iraq.

There was a great moment when Bill Maher said he had to "prioritize the lies of this Administration because they tell so many."

1. The conservative woman used to be
Dan Quayle's speechwriter. And that should explain it. What an ill-informed windbag.

were.

3. I don't know anything else about her, but that's what
Maher said when he was introducing the panel. All I could think was, "Shit, someone else actually wrote Quayle's speeches?" Every word out of her mouth was lifted directly from the RNC talking points, all of them have been heard before, over and over, ad naseum. I wanted to slap her and tell her to snap out of it.

8. She had the same effect on me. I swear there were moments
where she didn't even look like she believed the bullshit she was saying.

4. Right. Clinton fired them ALL! (at the beginning of his presidency) so it's the SAME THING!

Oh, and global warming is a "hoax", the jury is still out on evolution, and the Earth is flat- and only 6,000 years old.

5. It was tonights...
I watched it live at 10pm.

I felt kinda sorry for the rightie. She looks like she was sitting on a spool of barbed wire the entire time.

Must be hard, knowing that you're being forced to spew bullshit like that. I wonder how Karl Rove's hand feels up her ass?

6. We saw the show -- really, if it weren't for Bill Maher, as well as

Keith Olbermann and Jon Stewart, I'd want to end it all with me in my car idling in my closed up garage...

Also, I'm so glad to see that Bill Moyers is back on TV, where he belongs.

7. And Belzer called her on her bullshit! BIG TIME!
Made her look really stupid.
Did you happen to catch her expression when the show was ending? She looked beat up and embarrassed.

9. Yes, she did look very haggard. I love Belzer. He was awesome
loved that moment when he quoted Jesus and said that the Rethugs in this Administration were acting "anti-Christian"...so true.

He did an excellent job of calling her on things, to which she had no reply. It was great.
