CRAZY PEOPLE ARE FUNNY:

Us to George -- sure, whatever: In previous wars, we sacrificed our underwear. Now it's just our civil rights. (Bill Maher, March 16, 2007, LA Times)

STOP SAYING President Bush hasn't asked us to sacrifice anything for the war. He's asked us to sacrifice something enormous: our civil rights. To which the American people have responded: "Sure, whatever."

Note that while his statement is true -- Americans are unconcerned about the minimal impingement that steps taken to stop terror have had on the rest of us-- he couches it in terms that suggest contempt for his fellow citizens. Not only is his hysteria accidentally amusing but his expression of superiority is antithetical to his supposed liberalism.

He also might want to read some of the laws passed after the Oklahoma City bombing if he really is concerned about sacrificing civil rights.

In 1863 you'd be in jail, pal. Leftist boob with a convenient memory.

Every time Maher speaks, everyone within earshot becomes dumber. I guess this is what the terminal stage of Bush-derangement syndrome looks like. I wouldn't be surprised if they employed a stagehand to clean the froth off his chin before they film each segment of his show.

Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.

Every time Maher speaks, a demon gets a new, sharpend pitchfork.
