Leader Bored

By Bill Maher

Michael Savage thinks that what conservatives need is a "nationalist" party with a "charismatic" leader. Who has a little mustache. And loves his dog, Blondi.

Okay, maybe I made up the dog and the mustache, but in a recent interview, Michael Savage, one of the most popular right-wing radio hosts in the country, announced, "We need a nationalist party in the United States of America," which he defined as a party focused on "borders, language, and culture."
He went on to say the Tea Party has the rudiments of such a nationalist party, but it lacks a "charismatic mover of people."

So, to recap:  What America needs is a charismatic leader of a nationalistic party focused on borders, language, and culture.

Hey, I know it sounds bad, but Michael Savage wants you to know that he's not thinking of a certain Fuhrer.  No, he's thinking of -- wait for it -- King David.

"Somebody has to bring them all together, unite them like King David did the ancient tribes of Israel. And there is no King David out there. Who's the King David?"

Whew, that's a relief. You had me worried there for a second, Mr. Savage (real name: Michael Weiner).

So what we need is a new King David. A guy who could, um, kill a giant with a slingshot. That'll come in handy in case the US is invaded by giants.

But Savage kind of has a point. There is no popular figure that the disparate strands of modern conservatism (gun nuts, fetus worshippers, generic obese suburbanites, the super-rich...) can rally around.

It's telling that whenever the right loses an election, they immediately start blaming it on the fact that they don't have a Dear Leader that can sell their product. It never occurs to them that maybe people just don't like their product. They've convinced themselves that the only way Obama has won two elections is by stunning the electorate with his superhuman charisma, and so the only way they can combat him is by finding someone with equal but opposite charisma.

But Obama didn't win because of his charisma. The right talk about him like he's Michael Jackson and JFK and Jesus rolled into one, but people voted for him because he seemed better than John McCain or Mitt Romney, which is not an unreasonable position to take.

Hey Bill - Watched your show last night (02/01/2013) and although I have a Love/Hate relationship with you (which you wouldn't have the slightest clue of), I am indeed a true fan (since from your early days of "Politically Incorrect"). I must say that your error in stating that NJ Senator Menendez' alledged publizied mishaps of being with Teen Prostitutes from "Puerto Rico (you did establish that incorreectness twice to be exact). You were incorrect in the fact that the actual location is in fact "The Dominican Republic" and not "The USA Commonwealth of Puerto Rico". (*Please See http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2013/02/01/nj-sen-menendez-is-no-stranger-to-investigations?page=2 )
As obviously imagined - I am in fact of Puerto Rican decent and this is a big deal to me as well as your thousands if not millions of fellow Puerto Rican viewers and for this fact, an apology of the error (perhaps made on the show's production part)and retraction of the incorrect information is in order. Thank You in advance and now I can happily continue my Love/Hate affair with You - Bill ;)
Respectfully,

Mr.Maher, As what I would consider (being kind) a TV buffoon your comments are understandable but not appreciated. Please stay with what you are suited to political humor, and leave religious questions to those who have more knowledge and understanding. If you wish to know more about Christianity and the plan of salvation, I would suggest you speak to a local minister of your choice. Thank you for your time.

Maher,
So now your all about letting President Obama or any President be the sole decider on who, when and where to kill people with drones.
I don't think I have ever witnessed a bigger hypocrit than hearing you and your failure to say that is going to far.
It's good to know you now see the light and our closer to GW Bush then you ever thought.
I have no respect for you opinion.

Saw your movie on Religion 2/18/13
A number of years ago, Peter W. Stoner and Robert C. Newman wrote/updated a book entitled Science Speaks. The book was based on the science of probability and vouched for by the American Scientific Affiliation. Science Speaks set out the odds of any one man in all of history fulfilling even only eight of the 60 major scriptural/biblical prophecies (and 270 ramifications) fulfilled by the life of Jesus. Here's my point. The probability that any one man in this case Jesus of Nazareth could have fulfilled even eight of these 60 prophecies would be 1x10 to the 17th power. That's 1 in 100, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000. The actual number is something like 1x10 to the 150 power. This is a pearl of wisdom.

CDC/NIH is scared over antibiotic resistant CRE bacteria. The “establishment” will try to blame physicians prescribing life saving medications. Anyone addressing massive use of antibiotics in the cattle/poultry industry?

Bill after watching you for several years, and not to keep repeating things that you said, but Sara Palin has got to go. This bitch has got to be the stupidest person on the planet, yet people listen to her! I do go by the 93% rule that is 93 % of the people in this country are fucked up. I just don’t quite know what to do about all these morons running loose. It’s like a bunch of lemmings jumping off a cliff. I just wish these assholes in congress would follow suit. It’s pretty bad when the national rating for congress is around 8%. The only reason it’s that high is because of their relatives. Please keep up the great work; I am sick and tired of matching wits with unarmed men.
Thanks,

Bill,

As an advocate of animal rights, you might want to build support to stop various bills being brought up around the country that deal with the censorship of animal cruelty videos.

Here's a link to help explain.

Bill, please study up on HeadStart. In fact that year between 4 & 5 is one of the most vital "portals". Tho' sometimes bogged down in admin; studies DO show HeadStart and other Pre-K programs help so much. It's the education & other factors that FOLLOWS that ends to mess things up. By 4th grade when funding tends to falter, growing childcare costs will soon be not allowed on parents taxes, parents overwhelmed, teachers jaded (most like little ones or older students and new testing phase begins 3rd gr); no school counselors or services; arts cut (even music now!). In San Diego where I work (Scripps) w/ before & after elem school program (art education my specialty), I am amazed at district & admin pressure on teachers to still teach to the tests; still in No Child Left Behind mode from earlier training under Bush yrs. Example: 1st grade spelling 'test" to do at home; kids memorize words in order but can't spell out of order on lis; teachers encourage to do the order given for easy "grading"! School & parental (even affluent ones) food diets suck. Actually there is more recess than learning time; lots of parties, candy, CUPCAKES!!!! in class.

Bill is a flash in the pan, making a lot of money and in a few years he will be a has been. He may as well enjoy the ride while he can. Fame is fleeting. Hope he saves his money and doesn't wind up bankupt like so many celebrities who think the ride will never end. The climite now is what is not funny is funny and that is what makes you popular, not talent. Give 'em the old razzle dazzle and they won't notice.

Hey Bill. GOD WINS!! Whether you believe or not you will be judged and face God's wrath if your not saved. Won't be long now your getting up there in years and death could be right around the corner who knows a heart attack could kick in at any moment. Give your life to God and obey him or face his wrath. Your call! Good luck and God Bless, I. Evans

LOL at all these religious freaks and haters reading and commenting on Bill's blog! I have been watching you since 2007. Keep up the good work Bill. We not more people like you around

Someone needs to say this to the President publicly. Enjoy, I give it to you.

Mr. President:
Christopher Hitchens said in The Nation in September 1980, "Mr. Reagan will do to this country what he no longer can do to his wife" and he was right. We Democrats were so glad to get rid of him and his screwing then and detest what you are attempting to do now by bringing back those ideas.
Stop trying to screw me without pleasure now. Social Security is not part of the problem and never has been. Cuts to the program will bring back seniors living in poverty as was the case before FDR did the right thing. You are going to go down in history as the President that destroyed the American middle class and killed seniors with these cuts. That’s right; these cuts will kill many of us as we have to choose between our medicine and heat or food. Forget fuel, we can’t go anywhere now with the price of fuel.
If I wanted a screwing from my leaders I’d put a gag in Michele Bachman’s mouth and have at her, but gag for sure because when she opens her mouth she is ugly for sure as are all those Tea baggers, but at least it might be pleasurable.

You have been a complete failure regarding the Banksters that ruined the economy, Banksters that should be in prison with their wealth confiscated and their family’s forced to live in an urban slum on food stamps and see how they like it.
Richard Nixon was a card holding communist compared to you. In short, you have betrayed the Democrats in this country and are throwing us citizens under the bus.
Martin L. King is turning over in his grave every time you offer up Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. And, if you think it hurts us white persons, it will completely destroy the black population in the cities as they will kill each other for the scraps left by our garbage trucks.
But I guess that I waste my time on you because “you got yours”. You are selling us all down the river into slavery to your Wall Street buddies. Prove me wrong.
