You have to wonder whether HBO's Bill Maher is losing his mind, trying to draw attention to boost ratings, or really believes he can say anything he wants about conservatives and liberals will support him.
After ridiculing Alabama and Mississippi voters Tuesday as being "toothless," Maher took to Twitter with an even far more vile comment about Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum (serious vulgarity warning):
This came a few hours after he tweeted "Toothless Tuesday too tight to tally! We're gathered around the magic picture box with a bowl of grits watching the returns come in!" and shortly after Politico reported that Obama right-hand man David Axelrod had cancelled his appearance on Maher's show.
So, is Maher losing his mind, pining for attention, or just making it clear that he can say whatever he wants about conservatives and for the most part get away with it?
Or maybe there's a fourth alternative?
Could he be trying to force Obama to get his Super PAC to return his million dollars?
This way he would have accomplished what he wanted by making the donation - goading other wealthy Hollywoodans to contribute to Obama - whilst not having to drain his own bank account.
Even better, having been made the martyr, this would attract even more attention to him and his pathetic HBO program.
No matter what, he wins. Think about it.
