Bill Maher falsely claims that Palin said something she never said

Lying about what Palin said is explained as "an apparent attempt at humor," though there is no evidence that the audience knew that the claim was false. Possibly people just thought that they were supposed to laugh at how dumb Palin was supposed to be.

Bill Maher uttered a female vulgarism when referring to former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin on his HBO show Friday night.

“Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’” Maher said. “I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb tw**s, did you...”

Maher was offering an imagined Palin response in an apparent attempt at humor, as Palin had made no such statement.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) refused to comment on Maher’s use of the derogatory term. A rep told FOXNews.com it is a “known fact” that NOW does not correspond with FOX News. . . .

I find Bill Maher as humorless as the next man, but do you really think he intended his audiance to believe that? I don't think so. He did the same thing with Bush every day when he was president. Let's not be too sensitive here. He is a comedian after all.

The hypocrisy of NOW is worth pointing out though.

Lucky FOX News.

One has to remember that NOW isn't for women, it's for Marxist/feminists and that they react to slights against women as such and with political bias accordingly.

As the French comedian Fabrice Eboue is said to have once remarked on stage, "Feminism is not just for authoritarian or sexually frustrated women, it's also for lesbians". Palin is therefore completely unqualified to support feminism, since she lacks all of those dubious qualifications.
Bill Maher is merely a sad and creepy, little man.
