Bill Maher and Bill O’Reilly Debate Obama, The Tea Party, and ReligionAuthor: Jon Martin | Friday, October 1st, 2010 |
Bill Maher bravely appeared on The O’Reilly Factor earlier this week to discuss religion and how Obama is handling his presidency. Maher thinks Obama is doing well but that the Democrats need to be more vocal about their accomplishments. Although the interview was somewhat jovial(much like Jon Stewart’s recent interview with O’Reilly),
Maher’s comments on religion might have induced a few heart attacks in Fox News’ older viewers. It also simultaneously elicited chuckles from a surprised O’Reilly. I don’t think O’Reilly is actually a conservative, just a provocateur, why else would he laugh? He’s just making money on Fox, he’s a smart guy, not terribly moral though, Fox News is a moral black hole.
Maher has been in the spotlight ever since Tea Party endorsed candidate Christine O’Donnell beat GOP supported candidate Mike Castle in the Delaware Senate Primaries. Both Maher and O’Reilly have been ‘blackmailing’(Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s words) O’Donnell to come on their respective shows by threatening to release embarrassing clips from earlier in her career. Maher has released two so far, one in which O’Donnell says that scientists are implanting human brains into mice and another where O’Donnell claimed that “evolution is a myth“.
“I think if Jesus was in charge of the country, we probably would have healthcare for everyone.” – Bill Maher
The misguided Tea Party Movement is electing ultra-religious conservatives that have no insight into government and only want embed their religious beliefs into the laws of the United States. In essence, people like Christine O’Donnell are the taliban. She doesn’t want people to masturbate, she believes insane nonsense, she doesn’t understand science or evolution, and she wants to tell women and even men, what they can do with their body.
