Bill Maher's a Hero

It sad that some people think Bill Maher's not funny.

He's a comedian and comedian's are known for exposing hypocrisy. On Christmas eve he tweeted,  "Wow, Jesus just fXXX #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler 'Hey, Buffalo's killing them'."

Now a bunch of religious conservatives are calling for a boycott of HBO, the network Maher appears on.  Most religious conservatives probably don't watch HBO anyway and religious conservatives who are hypocrites probably do and won't stop.  Maher doesn't have to worry. He's safe at HBO.

My gag reflex kicks in whenever someone tries to tell me what to watch, read, listen to, etc.  Maher is funny and smart and I'll continue to watch him whenever I can.  Our society will certainly survive Maher's tweets and Tebow's religious zeal.
