In January, Bill Maher admitted that his HBO Real Time audience were "brainwashed liberals."
On Friday's program, he took this observation a step further at the beginning of the program by calling them "a pumped up bunch of liberal drug addicts" (video follows with commentary):
Maybe this is why they laugh at inanities like, "Too scary? Have you ever looked into Michele Bachmann's eyes?"
Of course, Real Time is a program that celebrates drug use.
Not only does Maher boast of his pot smoking on almost every show, last year he performed a mock heroin injection with actor Zach Galifianakis. In 2010 Galifianakis lit up a joint on the program.
Yet, as NewsBusters reported, in January 2011, Maher linked the education problem in this country to drugs saying, "The kids are dumbasses and their parents are dumbasses and they’re taking drugs and f--king and not learning."
I guess it's too much of an intellectual leap for HBO and its star to realize that their weekly celebration of drug use is adding to the problem.
