Bubba Sparks

By Bill Maher

On Meet the Press, Romney said that Bill Clinton helped "elevate" the Democratic Convention. Did he happen to watch the speech? Because it was a point-by-point evisceration of everything he stands for.

Isn't it time for one of Mitt Romney's advisers to inform him that Bill Clinton is for the other guy? Can anybody name a single issue that Obama and Clinton disagree on, or that Clinton and Romney agree on? Doesn't it seem a little odd for Romney to be embracing this guy that's going out there on the campaign trail, punching him in the face?

During W.'s election years celebrities did just as they are doing now, bashing the republicans nominee and it didn't matter he became President and was re-elected. America knows that celebrities for the most part are, well, not very intelligent, just good at acting like they are. You Bill Maher are no exception. You offer no original thought or ideas, simply regurgitated celebrity hoopla/hullabaloo. Citizens that work daily performing tasks that makes the world go around, makes the world a better place have the wisdom to ignore and weed through the rhetoric of celebrities like yourself. Celebrities offer very little of importance to the world. They offer entertainment, which on the totem pole of importance is near the bottom. Therefore when a celebrity endorses a candidate it's a red flag not to vote for that person. America knows not to follow the advice of the feeble minded. Obama was not elected because of the influence of celebrities, hate to bust your bubble, but rather because Americans wanted positive change. They believed Obama would spur that change, but now those who voted for Obama feel like fools. The impressionable will vote for him again, but those votes aren't the votes that won it for him the first time it was the votes of the true hard working middle class that won him the election. He will not get those votes this time around because the hard working middle class like me live by a motto; fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me. America will not be fooled this time no matter how many celebrities endorse Obama or how many celebrities tell citizens they are ignorant and uneducated if they vote for a Republican. Americans are aware that the opinions of celebrities are unimportant at best. Hypothetical - if something catastrophic took place and few had electricity, access to petroleum, oil , and gas was hard to come by who do you think would have the fortitude and ingenuity to get by? I'd be willing to bet that the majority of the people that could get by would be republicans. Republican citizens are those types of people I believe. Democrats would be running over to their republican neighbor's house asking for help. Now I'm not saying that's how all Democrats are, but rather just a generalization that I believe to be true. What's the point? Is that for all the ridicule Republicans receive I believe Republicans for the most part have good horse sense (common sense) which to me is an eroding quality.

Hey, did you forget that Clint Eastwood endorsed your boy in a long, rambling, incoherent speech...directed at an empty chair, lol? Even tho Eastwood is an over- the- hill, senile has-been celeb, he is still technically a celebrity. I suppose you won't be voting for ole Mitty now, right, lol? Stupid Republitard.

I know your race. It is made up of sheep. It is governed by minorities, seldom or never by majorities. It suppresses its feelings and its beliefs and follows the handful that makes the most noise. Sometimes the noisy handful is right, sometimes wrong; but no matter, the crowd follows it. The vast majority of the race, whether savage or civilized, are secretly kind-hearted and shrink from inflicting pain, but in the presence of the aggressive and pitiless minority they don't dare to assert themselves. Think of it! One kind-hearted creature spies upon another, and sees to it that he loyally helps in iniquities which revolt both of them. Speaking as an expert, I know that ninety-nine out of a hundred of your race were strongly against the killing of witches when that foolishness was first agitated by a handful of pious lunatics in the long ago. And I know that even to-day, after ages of transmitted prejudice and silly teaching, only one person in twenty puts any real heart into the harrying of a witch. And yet apparently everybody hates witches and wants them killed. Some day a handful will rise up on the other side and make the most noise - perhaps even a single daring man with a big voice and a determined front will do it - and in a week all the sheep will wheel and follow him, and witch-hunting will come to a sudden end.
"Monarchies, aristocracies, and religions are all based upon that large defect in your race - the individual's distrust of his neighbor, and his desire, for safety's or comfort's sake, to stand well in his neighbor's eye. These institutions will always remain, and always flourish, and always oppress you, affront you, and degrade you, because you will always be and remain slaves of minorities. There was never a country where the majority of the people were in their secret hearts loyal to any of these institutions."

There has never been a just one, never an honorable one - on the part of the instigator of the war. I can see a million years ahead, and this rule will never change in so many as half a dozen instances. The loud little handful - as usual - will shout for the war. The pulpit will - warily and cautiously - object - at first; the great, big, dull bulk of the nation will rub its sleepy eyes and try to make out why there should be a war, and will say, earnestly and indignantly, "It is unjust and dishonorable, and there is no necessity for it." Then the handful will shout louder. A few fair men on the other side will argue and reason against the war with speech and pen, and at first will have a hearing and be applauded; but it will not last long; those others will outshout them, and presently the anti-war audiences will thin out and lose popularity. Before long you will see this curious thing: the speakers stoned from the platform, and free speech strangled by hordes of furious men who in their secret hearts are still at one with those stoned speakers - as earlier - but do not dare to say so. And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open. Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.
