Sometimes Bill Maher Stops Being The Worst For 10 Minutes

Bill Maher is basically the worst. He’s self-satisfied and condescending and a bully. He’s basically the left wing Bill O’Reilly. Yes, Bill O’Reilly is more the worst than Bill Maher, but they are both varying degrees of the worst. But actually, they both share something else in common: they’re both not the worst when they are being interviewed by someone else. There, I said it. I actually enjoy listening to people interview Bill O’Reilly, and sometimes even find myself agreeing with him. There’s something about these two guys when they’re on their home turf that makes them completely insufferable, but obviously they would not be where they are today if they weren’t somewhat intelligent with a refined ability to craft articulate opinions. Don’t get me wrong, I still think that Bill O’Reilly is a beef-faced nightmare who needs to be sunk to the bottom of Whoops Ocean. I just want to be really clear on where we stand in regards to Bill O’Reilly and his relationship to Whoops Ocean, which is that despite his general decency in interviews, he should be at the bottom of it.

Bill Maher was on the The View this morning to talk about his new movie Religulous, which looks like a self-satisfied, condescending movie made by a bully. And OK, actually, he’s kind of self-satisfied and condescending in this interview. And a bully. OK, FORGET IT. But what can I say, I like him in interviews. Sue me.

Sorry about the poor quality of the video. I’ve already sent a letter of complaint to the CEO of YouTube so that will probably solve it. I’ve also sent a letter to the CEO of Whoops Ocean and he said that not only is there room for Bill O’Reilly AND Bill Maher, but we can actually put Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck down there, too. So, you know, YAY!
