"If You Have HBO Drop It, and Tell Them Why"

The troll known to the world as Bill Maher sunk to a new low the other day, talking about the Palin/Letterman controversy:

"In defending his friend, Maher thought Republicans had over reacted and this was just a case of ‘fake’ outrage. Much ado about nothing. He then went on talking about how Letterman had invited Sarah Palin and her young daughter, Willow, to appear as guests on his show but the Governor declined because she thought it would be wise to keep her daughter away from him.

"Said Maher, “…that’s right, he’s 62 years old, he’s gonna [f**k] her right there on stage…it would be very wise to keep her, very wise, yes. You know, I’d worry a little more about the 18-year old hockey players who knock up your daughters.”

"To which his audience of trained seals laughed and clapped and had a good old time."

If you really like your HBO, (sigh) hey, as our "fearless leader" keeps telling us, we all gotta make sacrifices.

Letterman apologized (kinda), and I was willing to halfway let him off the hook. But this is beyond low.

Hey, Maher! Maybe it wasn't Willow who needed to be protected from Letterman; maybe it was Letterman who needed to be protected from Willow.

And maybe you better shut your trap before a certain ticked off 14 year-old smashes your face in (on the plus side, a good punch would probably do your face alot of good).

And maybe someday a full-grown Tripp will have a word or two to share with you. Think about that the next time you open your dirty mouth.

Sexist Pig.

Here's the link to the feedback page of Maher's show. Please tell him and HBO exactly how you feel and what you intend to do about it.

Just a note, probably not interesting to anyone.. but as for me an our home, our family of 5. We finally broke our grip on broadcast television.
In a move which we should have made many years ago, we disconnected our televisions from any broadcast, cable, satellite or even an antenna... now we only watch Pre-Screened DVDs.
If Americans would do this En-Mass, This country might get back to a moral nation it once was.

How troubling it is to have force your children to go to bed when you do for fear of what they might see or hear over broadcast television.

Call us prudes.. be we are much happier now.. We talk, play games, read books and do all kinds of things together now that we are NOT stupefied by that mesmerizing satan box, the Television. www.alaskalive.net
