This post is rated "R" because it is Bill Maher and from HBO. We just happened to catch this the other night and we laughed our @$$es off.
For those of you who didn't get that second part, it's worth spelling it out:
"Referring to voters who America has left behind economically as bitter isn't an insult, in fact it's a compliment acknowledging that they're smart enough to understand what's happening to them. The hopeful. . . now those are some idiots. So what separates the bitter (my people) from the idiots? If you think the Democrats are going to take away your Bible, you're an idiot. If you think they're going to take away your gun, you're an armed idiot. And if you think they're going to take away your gun and give it to a Mexican to kill your god, you're Bill O'Reilly.
Now at the end of last week when Barack Obama ignited the "Bittergate Scandal," you would have thought he would have scaled Mt. Rushmore, dick-slapped Jefferson in the face, and spray painted "God Damn America" over Lincoln! But he wasn't lying, the truth is that religion, and guns, and hating gays, and immigrants are crutches that people lean on. So are fast food, crystal meth, child beauty pageants. . . but we don't have time to tackle all of America's addictions in one night.
So let's focus on the big thing, that the people who claim to be the non-elitists, are the people who constantly shift tax burdens to the people who fire you, to YOU. John McCain voted to repeal the estate tax, voted against raising the minimum wage, has no health care plan, and is fine with keeping the working class in Iraq for 100 years. But he's a real man of the people. And the President went to Harvard and Yale and inherited your country from his dad, but he's not an elitist because he can neither read nor write. What does it take to be an elitist these days, anyway? They wear shoes? They don't buy their groceries at the gas station? Their dog as a name and their truck doesn't? You know who's bitter in America? I am. Because shit-kickers voted twice for a retarded guy they wanted to have a beer with and everybody else had to suffer the consequences!" --- Bill Maher and his writers
Oh, and btw, this is supposed to be funny! Laugh!
