This morning I was treated to a Reese’s Pieces combination of real commentary and opinionated competition when my favorite female hosted talk show interviewed my favorite smart assed political comedian talk show host. Bill Maher promotes his movie Religulous on The View.
Firstly, why is Sherri Shepard – black woman that is not Whoopi – dressed like Janet Jackson from 1992? Our Seeker of Style can comment on this in detail and explain the differences with photo examples … weird kid, but Dominion by blood.
Secondly, is Liz Hasselbeck trying to convert the heathen with the power of her pussy? Those toned up tan legs are in nearly every shot and aimed right at Maher, and she’s surprisingly … open to his viewpoint despite being quite opposed to Bill on several subjects. I was expecting – hoping actually – that he would start to denigrate religious observance but be interrupted with the conservative MILF uncrossing the goods like Sharon Stone with a heaven light shining out of her crotch and Maher exclaiming “SWEET JESUS”!! Sadly for team Christ, Maher avidly prefers chocolates to blondes.
More seriously though, I thought that Bill could’ve been funnier in pitching the movie. I’m not surprised at the little tiffs since he’s know for being real and the ladies are known for their kick-in-the-jaw opinions. I was expecting more friction – yes, an unintentional entendre you mouth-breather – with the young and dumbs but I guess they’ve each had enough embarrassing moments on Youtube. Having a clip with his mom that showed he wasn’t hatched from some beatnik opium den of goons (though the facial resemblance to their king is uncanny) was a nice touch.
Another shocker, the crack on Sarah Palin being a bimbo went over a little rough. In defense of Maher, the term “bimbo” was originally denotative of an attractive but unintelligent woman. Over the years the promiscuous connotation has been squirted in the word’s face as well. He tries to qualify this by saying men can be bimbo’s too, but the audience is too busy fanning away the vapors of such a scandalous statement to take note of the new form.
On faith, I’ve always thought that Maher is too hard on those that have it. Calling it a neurological disorder is inaccurate and extreme, at worst it’s a minor delusional psychosis since it doesn’t really cause a person to hurt others or themselves – in most cases it prevents this. Nobody-damned atheists reading this will be pointing out centuries of supposedly contrary fact but most religious violence is the result of the psychosis playing off of other issues and situational stimulants. The Crusades began over geo-political beef with the Byzantines; 911 was committed to kick the U.S. in the nuts for similar stuff. Religion is merely the social lubricant to get folks to kill and die for these causes and is often twisted to do so – Stalin didn’t need any ethereal cloud dweller for him to murder innocents.Today, in this culture, being a person of faith merely means you acknowledge the virute of higher ideas and are unlikely to participate in fun sex stuff until you’re hitched.
Da Dominion has neither prerequisite nor prohibition of faith, though this doesn’t mean any or all of them are Truth. The term “personal truth” is bullshit. Grow a pair and admit its faith/belief and roll with it. Whatever keeps you enjoying our entertainment without flagellating yourself (unless that’s your thing, sick fuck) go with it. Just wiped down your monitor when you’re done.
