Bill Maher Channels Obama’s Alter Ego ‘Barry Whitehouse’ in his New Rules Segment

Crooks & Liars- By Heather

Apparently Bill Maher really doesn’t want to see the Republicans back in office any more than I do. Maher channeled his inner “Barry Whitehouse” and reminded everyone why as aggravated as many of us might be with the Democrats right now, we don’t need to be putting the Republicans back in office and had a bit of fun while doing it.

Maher: Why can’t the Democrats get props for what they’ve achieved? Oh, I know… I know. Obama’s black. He’s used to being denied credit. And there’s nothing wrong with being hard on him. He’s the president and it’s our job to keep him honest.

But when it comes to voting, when we only have two choices, you’ve got to grow up and realize there’s a big difference between a disappointing friend and a deadly enemy. Of course the Democrats are disappointing. That’s what makes them Democrats. If they were any more frustrating they’d be your relatives.

But in this country they are all that stands between you and darkest night. You know why their symbol is the letter “D”? Because it’s a grade that means good enough, but just barely.

You know why the Republican symbol is “R”? Because it’s the noise a pirate makes when he robs you and feeds you to a shark.

The truth is the Democratic base is still way larger than the Republican base. The reason why they’re losing is something called the enthusiasm gap. Yeah. And the voters that Obama and the Democrats have really lost are the women. Women like Velma Hart are just not getting enough love from the president.

So tonight I thought I’d try to make their fantasies come true and speak to you as Barack Obama’s alter ego, Barry Whitehouse.

Christine O’Donnell: ‘Evolution Is A Myth. Why Aren’t Monkeys Still Evolving Into Humans?’ (VIDEO)

Bill Maher has so far kept his promise to air an embarrassing clip of Tea Party favorite and Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell every week that she refuses to be a guest on his HBO show, “Real Time.”

Last night Maher showed a video from an appearance she made in 1998 on his old program “Politically Incorrect” in which she calls evolution “a myth” and backs up her claim with the question: if evolution is real, “why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?”

This latest uncovered statement comes on the heels of a clip unearthed from an old “Scarborough Country” episode in which she insists that we stop the whole nation from having sex.

Since she was a guest on Maher’s previous show 22 times, it’s unlikely that the steady stream of past statements coming to light will stop any time soon.

Bill Maher Blasts Tea Baggers For Ignoring Defense Spending (VIDEO)

First Posted: 04-24-10 12:15 AM   |   Updated: 04-24-10 08:58 AM

Bill Maher laid into the tea party movement and the American people for what he described as their disconnect from the reality of the nation’s finances.

“The problem with the tea party movement, besides their almost universal rejection of dentistry, is that they want money for nothing and chicks for free. They want a deregulated free market and their jobs to stay here in the US; they want guaranteed health coverage regardless of preexisting conditions without a big government mandate; they want to call themselves teabaggers and people to keep a straight face. And of course they want big tax cuts along with deficit reduction. I can’t even think of a suitable analogy for that disconnect–it’s like thinking getting a handjob will clean your garage.”

Despite a $12.8 trillion national debt, America does not want to cut back on entitlement programs, defense spending, or even space travel, Maher observed during his “new rule” monologue on “Real Time.”

He challenged the tea partiers to take on defense spending saying:

Everything that goes into defense costs us about a trillion dollars a year, most of which goes into fighting the Russians in 1978. Fighter planes for all those dog fights we get into with the Taliban, submarines to foil their evil plot to blow up our ships with car bombs, and space lasers to shoot down their exploding underpants…scream about handouts, this is what they should be protesting.

Bill Maher: The Environment Is The Ultimate Health Care Issue (VIDEO)

Huff Post- First Posted: 03-13-10 03:56 AM   |   Updated: 03-13-10 05:49 AM

Bill Maher called the environment the “ultimate health care issue” Friday night during “Real Time” and argued that our future depends on our ability to stop global warming. But some on his panel weren’t so convinced.

Conservative talk radio host Amy Holmes, actor Hill Harper, and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson weighed in, with Harper being the sole panelist to agree with Maher’s assessment. Johnson said he believes in climate change, but that its effects have been greatly exaggerated. While Holmes called herself a skeptic, and argued that the science behind the topic is not settled. She described it as a “raging debate.”

Maher was blown away by Holmes’ skepticism and shot down Johnson for opposing cap and trade legislation. Maher pointed out that Republicans weren’t so disgusted by cap and trade when George H.W. Bush used it to stop acid rain.

Bill Maher Explains Why You Should Move Your Money (VIDEO)

Huffington Post– First Posted: 01-12-10 10:06 PM   |   Updated: 01-12-10 10:16 PM

On the eve of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission’s first day of hearings, where the CEOs of four of America’s largest banks are scheduled to testify about the banks’ roles in the financial meltdown, Bill Maher explains why you should move your money out of a “too big to fail” bank and put it into a local community bank or credit union.

According to Maher: “This is not a conservative idea or a liberal idea. It’s not left or right. It’s populism at its best.”

Bill Maher Challenges Obama: “Stand Up For The 70 Percent Of Americans Who Aren’t Crazy” (VIDEO)

On “Real Time” Friday night, host Bill Maher closed his show with some sharp words for the Obama administration with regards to how they have responded to criticism from figures such as Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin.

Maher called the White House “cowards” for allowing Van Jones to resign following a series of right-wing attacks and for capitulating to those who complained about the nature of Obama’s back-to-school speech.

“The Democrats just never learn. Americans don’t really care which side of an issue you’re on as long as you don’t act like pussies,” Maher said.

Maher then criticized Obama for trying to win over those who vehemently disagree with him, insisting that the president should instead “stand up for the 70 percent of Americans who aren’t crazy.”

“When are we going to actually show up in all this,” Maher said.
