Fact Checking "Real Time With Bill Maher"

Bill Maher could of had it right had he said, 'my audience is stupid because they actually believe what I say and applaud my lies.' We're also pretty sure that even Sarah Palin would do a FAR better job as President than Barack Obama has done and even former Obama supporters are now realizing their huge mistake. Maher doesn't yet realize his mistake and is one of the few who are still 'stuck on stupid.'

Fact Checking "Real Time With Bill Maher"

It was clear to anyone roaming through the channels last week that the stupid shift was working overtime at the factory of nonsense otherwise known as the Real Time With Bill Maher show on HBO.

Billowing out from behind the orotund self-regard and convivial asskissing on the season finale was an impenetrably dense haze of idiocy, whoppers, errors and doozies, turning your own personal TV into a spillcam of pluming mistakes.

Missing in action for much of the night was the truth, chased away by the hemorrhoidal factitious rectitude that is and always will be the order of the night in the House of Maher.

In the dock: Panelists Jon Meacham of Newsweek, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show," and former Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn.).

Joining later and adding to the general haze was the high priest of conspiracy, the fantabulist Oliver Stone, swinging his censer of malice, as mean-spirited disregard for the truth was the incense of the hour.

Many of the errors inflicted on the general population were easily avoidable, as the information is retrieved via a simple Bing or Google search. Hyperlinks provided.

From the California elections, to drilling for oil, to claims about the US military, little was left unmolested (for similar fare, see "Factchecking the President," June 2).
