Bill Maher’s Friday night HBO show featured guests Amy Holmes of CNN and Andrew Breitbart. (Seth McFarland was also there, but mercifully, didn’t participate in the following exchange about ObamaCare and the Democrats dwindling hopes for November.)
There are two great moments in this clip:
1. The look on Maher’s face when Breitbart corners him about his longtime nonsensical claim that he’s a libertarian and forces him to admit he’s a socialist.
2. When Maher says the only reason the American people don’t like ObamaCare is because they’re stupid.
Holmes: They talked endlessly about it and their agenda was rejected by the American people, that’s a simple fact.
Maher: Because they’re stupid.
Breitbart: So you’re, you’re officially not a Libertarian anymore, right? I mean, this position…
Breitbart: …has run so far from the Libertarian position. Is this, so you admit that you have more of a, you know, European socialist leaning perspective on this issue?
Breitbart: Why is that funny?
Maher: I’m..I’m not afraid…it’s not…I’m not afraid to say European socialism works.
