News Peruse

You know how I do enjoy doling out digital television views,
So oblige me and enjoy ‘FOX & The BILL‘ in a short News Peruse:

The season premier of GLEE ran tonight
And yes – I was the Gleek’iest chic onsite.

I was jammin’
their version of Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ “NEW YORK” –
Arty continues to roll in as the banging hip hop sport – His capacity isn’t short.

I’d also have to say he did TRAVIE MCCOY more justice than fair
when he rolled out the rapping hook to the joint “BILLIONAIRE”.

Sunshine [Charice Pempengco] joined the cast of Glee and “found her own”.
She’s the young asian teen, whose voice sounds ‘soulfully black and grown’.

NEWS out of Atlanta is charging some pretty nasty wrongs
About teen boys being cohersed into sex with Pastor Eddie Long.
What’s really going on?

Time will soon tell…
and arse holes will smell.

More on Real Time’s Bill Maher
Because his LKL interview was on fire:

Bill Maher on President Obama [Democrats & whether people trust the government]

Larry states: A new CNN opinion research poll says 25% say they trust the federal government to do what is right – most of the time. What does that say Bill? “It says more people are trusting than should be. Considering what our government has done lately – but on the other hand the Democrats who have had a pretty successful legislative season don’t get credit for it. Because it hasn’t reached people yet – I mean, the big one is HEALTHCARE and as soon as it passed Obama went up in the poles because ‘people love a winner’ Larry. If Tiger Woods had come back and won The Masters he could have murdered those women. But you know it kind of faded because the benefits of the program haven’t been felt yet. And there was a report out today that said it really isn’t going to pay for itself“.

Larry inputs: But the car companies paid back their loans and they’re selling cars and so on… “Right and they also passed FINANCIAL REFORM and they eliminated the banks as the middle man for student loans, (which was long over due). The Democrats are very bad at selling their own product; The Republicans are genius’ at it and I’ve said it before” says Bill, “A bad product well apologized for — is superior in this country to a good product. The Democrats do have a better product as bad as they are. Now it’s unfortunate that they couldn’t have sold what they’re selling better and have better policies.

Afghanistan was a glaring error, I think. First of all Obama just should have had a different policy from the get go. He’s tied to it now, because he ran on it. He should have ran on a policy that said, ‘The Army is the wrong tool to use to fight terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank you – goodnight’. But now he’s tied to this dumb policy where we’re supposedly committed full force until like 8 months later, when we advertise that we’re pulling all of our troops out. I mean the Taliban have outlasted people for decades and centuries“.

Larry asks: Well how do you defeat terrorism? “You don’t“, Bill says, “That’s the key Larry, you don’t defeat it. You have to understand it’s always with us. It’s like saying how do you defeat crime? You can’t defeat crime“… Larry interjects Violent crime is down in America. “Down. Right and we’ve had terrorism go down. By the way Obama has been president for 20 months and there has not been an attack. Bush was president for 9 months when we got hit. So on that score – Obama’s kept us safer.”

But you’re saying there’ll always be terrorism? asks Larry. “ Of course. Especially when we do things like invade Muslim countries“. Should we not have called it a war on terrorism? says Larry, Because there will not be a victory day? Bill concurs, “ Exactly. We should not have called it a war on terrorism. There will not be a victory day. Exactly. And you know this war in Afghanistan— I never read a good thing about it. The longer we’re there the stronger the Taliban gets. I mean I read bad things about the government of Karzai, I read bad things about the Afghan Army, about the Afghan Police, I read bad things about our soldiers. Of course they’re put in an impossible situation and they’re doing the best they can – they’re very brave but 5 of them are now up for murder charges. I read horrible things about what ordinary people in that country do. They stoned a woman a couple of weeks ago for eloping. For the crime of eloping and this wasn’t just the Taliban. The whole village came out – even her own relatives. That’s got a hurt — a rock comes and it’s from your mom”.

Larry asks about Pakistan. How do we deal with them? “Well we’re not dealing with them“. Bill responds in a discerning voice, “What – you mean because they’re a Muslim country with nuclear weapons? Well that happens while we were trying to get the nuclear weapons that weren’t in Iraq out of Iraq. I think that genie is out of the bottle.

The same thing with Iran – you know we’re obsessed with Iran getting nuclear weapons. You know that’s like a father whose obsessed with his daughter losing her virginity. It’s going to happen. It’s going to happen and you’re going to have to live in a world where it does happen. To give a little perspective I was watching “Day After Tomorrow” [1983] – Do you remember that? It was a huge sensation at the time because we were in a cold war. It was about what would happen if the United States and the Soviet Union wiped each other off. It was chilling because – ofcourse in that era when a nuclear exchange took place it was between two super powers who emptied their arsenal and wiped out the world. We’re not living in that world anymore. Things are actually better. Could a terrorist get a nuke into the port of Los Angeles? Absolutely, but it would probably be just one bomb. As awful as that is. It’s not as bad as when two super powers were facing each other with arsenals”.

Stay tuned for Larry and Bills latest interview conclude,
I’m Qui
bidding you a Happy Hump Day and “Don’t be a Sue“. lol!
Oui!!! to GLEE!!! 🙂

REAL TIME Bill on LIVE

In News, Politics on September 20, 2010 at 2:07 pm

As we enter another season with Bill Maher on HBO, he decides to go LIVE with LARRY KING and boy oh boy is he a star. He received his HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR last weekend and the taped excerpts of the event that were played on LKL were hilarious. Bill gave thanks to a few people without whom he wouldn’t have made it: “George Bush, Sarah Palin and the Pope”.

His recent Stand Up: “But I’m not wrong” is on DVD and is pretty enlightening as well. I caught his latest LARRY KING LIVE interview and thought I’d hammer out a few transcripted notes to share with you. The entire interview is about an hour long, so I will likely type out the remainder of it before the weeks end. So without furter adu — let’s begin:

BILL on The Tea Party Movement & Sarah Palin

“Christine O’Donnell was one of our most frequent guests on Politically InCorrect…we created people like Ann Colulter, Laura Ingraham, because we liked to book a lot of female conversatives. They were good press and good for the show. We loved Christine O’Donnell — I still like her, you can not not like her – she is such a nice person. We have a great clip that used to be in our highlight reel of Ben Affleck on that show, just saying “Please Christine – Shut up!” Because I guess she would just go on and on. She was known, back then as the girl from S.A.L.T. [SALT stands for the SAVIORS of ALLIANCE LIFTING TRUTH] and I guess that’s still the stake she claims. Part of me (for sentimental reasons) is rooting for Christine in Delaware – the other part of me is rooting for her because she’s going to get her Christian Ass Kicked in the general elections.

This is the great thing about the Tea Baggers and the Republican Party. A year ago we were debating whether Tea Baggers were even Republicans. Remember, they were very independent and then a poll came out and it like blew the lid off it – ‘Okay they’re really Republicans’ – Of course they’re really Republicans and they’re taking over that party.

Democrats should be very happy that people like Christine O’Donnell are winning elections because in the general election, I think (know the Democrats are going to lose some seats probably a lot), but not as many as they would have if Tea Baggers weren’t winning the Primaries. Because I think voters are generally conservative, (and when I say conservative) they are not really comfortable with people that are “out there” on the left or the right & these Tea Baggers are out there. I’ve said it before, (probably on your show) when people go into the voting booth it’s like getting on an airplane – they get scared. They tend to do things that are conservative in nature, even if their liberal. And I don’t think (even conservative voters) will look at people like Sharon Angle or maybe Joe Miller in Alaska (although AK is a separate place because they‘re very conservative people), but certainly Christine O’Donnell can not win in a state like Deleware because she’s just crazy“.

Larry asks Bill: What do you mean “crazy”, give me an example. Bill replies “Well I just think that people, (they understand our country is in a lot of trouble), even people who are angry understand that crazy people are not going to make it better. Christine O’Donnell like all of these Tea Baggers, have no plan, no agenda, no policy points – they have one advantage: They’re running against Democrats“.

Bill on President Obama [Democrats and whether people trust the government]

Larry asks Bill: What do you make of this whole Anti-Obama thing? Bill replies, “I was talking about it to Jay Leno last night, I said, Jay – Maybe he’s [Obama] not even a mammal, he may be a werewolf Larry – we don’t know that. It was bad enough when we had these people called “the birthers” who thought he was not born here, but I was saying last night I’m identifying this new group — and I call them “the churchers”. The churchers are the people who don’t think that he is a Christian. Larry interjects, “But he’s the first president that has ever issued a press release issued saying that he is [a Christian].” Bill responds, “He’s a secret Muslim Larry. I guess you haven’t being paying enough attenion. When I spoke with him he told me about his plan to use drinking water to sterilize white people. Oh woops! I’ve said to much. I have in theory said the internet and Fox News makes people stupider. The Pew Group did a study that showed 10 years ago Democrats, Republicans and Independents basically got their news from the same news sources…probably more from CNN – then we had this polarity… And now, John Edwards said, we have two Americas – and we do have two Americas. We have the America that’s living in reality – the people who understand THAT Obama is a centist liberal from Hawaii whose trying to dig us out of this hole that we’re in and then we have this other FOX mad drudge Rush Limbaugh reality where he [Obama] is a Muslim sleeper cell manturian candidate who was sent over by his Kenyan father…” Larry interrupts Bill and asks, What kind of intelligent person would believe that? Bill responds “Intelligent people? Larry we’re broadcasting in America – how ridiculous. 🙂

Larry asks, Is there a racist tone to this? Yes Larry it’s extreme racism. Its so funny that the one thing the Tea Baggers hate is when you call them racist – the other thing they hate is BLACK PEOPLE – but they wont say it. If you saw what Newt Gingrich has saying… Okay, for those who don’t know, I don’t even know if I can recount it in a way that makes sense to people…he was quoting from an article by Dinesh D’Souza who’s saying now, (what Newt Gingrich says he believes] is that ‘Obama is getting his philosophy from his father’ (who he spent about a month with –in his whole life when he was 8 years old) and that ‘his father was a loud tribesman from Kenya who was mad at white people’, and so Newt says that he [Obama] is anti colonial. Like that’s a bad thing. Like when George Washington was fighting the British – it was a good thing to be anti colonial.

Sarcasm is Bills ‘everyday all day’,
I’m Qui
just retyping what he and LARRY had to say.
Hey-eyyyy!
I got’cha back
& I’ll be back with MORE BILL…momentarily.
