Bill Maher was apparently not a fan of the Rally To Restore Sanity and/or Fear. On Real Time With Bill Maher (Friday, 8 PM ET on HBO), Maher criticized the event, which was put on by Comedy Central personalities Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, for its lack of purpose.
"If you are going to have a rally in which hundreds of thousands of people show up, you might as well make it about something," Maher said.
Maher also agreed with the recently-suspended-from MSNBC Keith Olbermann, who's been upset that Stewart drew the equivalency between the political commentators at Fox News and at MSNBC."
"Keith Olbermann is right when he says he's not the equivalent of Glenn Beck," Maher explained. "One reports facts, and the other is very close to playing with his poop."
Contrary to Maher's implication, we've watched enough Glenn Beck to be able to state with a high degree of certainty that he's never come anywhere close to feces-play on his show. However, given Beck's highly unorthodox use of props, we fear Maher may have just given him a new idea.
