Bill Maher: Conservatism is “just about being a dick”

Conservatism is being a dick

Earlier this week Bill Maher explored conservative teenaged pundits, comparing them to Republican adults noting that 14 year olds cannot mimic the Rachel Maddow show, but can do the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh just fine.


“When 14-year-old boys sound exactly like you do and can produce radio shows and books and speeches that sound exactly like yours, maybe you should rethink the shit that comes out of your mouth.”

Maher ended by explaining just how easy it would be for a teenager to host Limbaugh’s Sean Hannity‘s shows: “Step one, be a giant dick. Step two, there is no step two.”

“Remember the Republican debates we had this year? They applauded for the idea of letting a sick man without insurance die. Herman Cain got cheers for saying he’d electrify the border fence. They booed a gay man serving his country in the military. No wonder 14-year-old boys can do your act, you act exactly like 14-year-old boys. There’s no ideology here. It’s just about being a dick.”
