Politically Incorrect

Christopher Hitchens lets Bill Maher and his audience of hooting morons have it.

The "Bush is stupid" joke is about as cheap as wrong as it gets. After eight years, the insufferable Maher is finally called on it.

Warning: Adult language and gestures.

if morons will laugh it will spread. How many "Are you Smarter than Bush?" ads have you seen on various webpages over the last 8 years? Gee, I wonder if the same will be applied to the Holy Obama...

That was great!
I think Maher is angry because he's an unfunny idiot. Always has been.

No, S, Obama will continue to be protected because he is a Lib and mostly because he is black and therefore off limits for insult in our apologist Libbed society. He and his presidency will benefit from the Racial Double Standard.

Gil - So, let me get this straight. Its OK to post youtube links with "SALTY" content, when they are in defense of Bush, but not when they are critical of Bush?

Steve - As much as Bush comes across as being a dope, I don't believe that he's stupid. What I do believe is that he is of just average, or slightly above average intelligence. I also believe that Bush lacks intellectual curiosity, can be ignorant, mentally lazy, and arrogant. I think we need, and expect, more than that from a president. Part of the Bill Maher show that wasn't included in Gil's link, was Hitchens telling a Bush joke, and Hitchens saying that Bush might be dyslexic. Members of his own party, and inner circle, have said many of the same things.
Are they all part of a conspiracy to make Bush look bad?

Gil - Do we really need parental warnings on your blog? Oh wait! I forgot about R, the man child.

A public confrontation and rebuttal of a well-known, rather smarmy critic of the President is newsworthy and deserves to be distributed for its redeeming social value, no matter how salty.
Just another blogging opinion of a proBama partisan has considerably less value.
I see no inconsistency with the editor's discretion.

OK. 2009 reality check!Blame the left! Blame the liberal media! It's typical, pass the buck, neo-con thinking. Its time for you bozo's to face reality. No one is more responsible for this cowboy idiot image, than Bush himself. The man has portrayed himself this way, and now you're upset?
The swagger. The wanted dead or alive, bring it on, tough talk. The volumes of stupid quotes. The inability to understand a simple question. In a recent interview, he was asked "If the intelligence on WMD's had been different, would we still have gone to war?" to which he replied "You mean if they had them?" What was he thinking?
Then there was the famous "Fool me once" quote that he butchered.
Heres some more for your enjoyment:
They misunderestimated me.
- US President George W. Bush (November 6, 2000 in Bentonville, Arkansas)

Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.
- US President George W. Bush (August 5, 2004)

You teach a child to read, and he or her will be able to pass a literacy test.
- US President George W. Bush (2000?)

Reading is the basics for all learning.
- US President George W. Bush (Discussing his "Reading First" plan in Reston, Virginia, March 28, 2000)

Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?
- US President George W. Bush (January 11, 2000)

My views are one that speaks to freedom.
- US President George W. Bush (in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 29, 2004)

And it's a struggle between good and it's a struggle between evil.
- US President George W. Bush in a speech (on terrorism) to the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and Trade Show at the Denver Convention Center (February 8, 2002)

We cannot let terrorists hold this nation hostile or hold our allies hostile.
- US President George W. Bush (2000 in Des Moines, Iowa)

Our nation must come together to unite.
- US President George W. Bush (June 4, 2001)

Bush stumbling during his debate with Al Gore when he looked dead pan at the camera and said with complete sincerity that the US could not elect a man who sends "mexed missages'."

If you choose to do so, when Iraq is liberated, you will be treated, tried and persecuted as a war criminal.
- US President George W. Bush (In St. Louis on January 22, 2003, he likely meant 'prosecuted.' Just for the record Bill O'reilly made the same mistake on his TV show The O'reilly Factor in August 2004)

Will the highways on the Internet become more few?
- US President George W. Bush (Concord, New Hampshire, January 29, 2000)

If you don't stand for anything, you don't stand for anything!
- US President George W. Bush (November 2, 2000 at Bellevue Community College)

I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully.
- US President George W. Bush (September 29, 2000 in Saginaw, Michigan)

I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family
- US President George W. Bush (January 27, 2000 in New Hampshire)

We've had 8 yrs. of this. This is the real Bush, and this is the REAL reason that Bush is viewed as an idiot. He did this to himself.

There will always be a market for the "Bush is stupid" claim or joke. Just like there is market for Polish jokes.

But people who think they're so much smarter than the President of the United States, are kidding themselves.

Unattractively so.

Yes. The Lib Media and their determination to paint him in that unflattering light.

Maybe time for some therapy, BB, to help you with your apparent Bush Derangement Syndrome.

Randal, Gil is capable of answering questions without your help, and you are the last one that should be giving mental health advice.

yeah, media is very liberal biased. I don't see otherwise. bring your arguement...

Let's dismiss the fox news crap now since I know no one that watches it these days.

Steve - Gil hasn't answered my question yet. Ill ask you. Who is most responsible for Bush's image?
If the media was making this stuff up, or taking it out of context, I'd agree with you. But we live in an age of youtube, and the instant replay. Bush has done a damn good job of putting his foot in his mouth. How can you blame the media for that?

Some politicians just misspeak. Others inadvertently expose their true feelings in a weak moment.
Let's see if the liberal media keeps regurgitating their beloved Obama's condescending "clinging to guns and religion" comment for the next four years.

Jake - Yea. Bush was eight years of misspeak. Trust me on this Jake. Obama will be a much better representative of our country. When he is finished his eight years, even you will be proud of him. Hell, even Randal will be singing his praises!

R, Carter - I predicted they wouldnt find WMD's. I predicted an Obama win. Trust me on Obama. You will sing his praises. More predictions. Randal will continue to make an ass of himself, and Carter will continue trying to impress people by putting Esq. at the end of his name.

bob, i predict an incompetent administration masked by a guy who can speak and that's about it. . I envision more red-sate/blue state debates and a shift back to the right by 2012, as evidenced by senate and house pickups in a four year period. Let's remember, the "Is the Republican party dead?" comments in 2008 followed the "Is the Democratic party dead?" comments in 2004. The elevation of the Holy Obama was nothing more than a referrendum on Bush combined with a guy who knew how to use a blackberry and get kids on facebook to go crazy with his pepsi-cola-like logo that was more of a fashion trend than common sense.

Opinions seem to change quickly in the course of one term - as evidenced by such a shift from Bush's clean win in 2004 to a nationwide referrendum in 2008. Who's to say it won't happen again and Obama turns out to be this generation's Herbert Hoover if his policies backed by his 2/3rds of a senate term fail?
