Maher: There’s gotta be something funny about Obama

On Tuesday, America elected its first black president, Barack Obama. But what does Obama’s sweeping victory mean for the United States?
.
Bill Maher has the answer to that, and other questions — including why he wants President George W. Bush to stay at home for the next 76 days.

Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” and the star of the current film “Religulous,” was a guest on Wednesday’s “Larry King Live.” He talked with CNN’s King about Sarah Palin’s future, George W. Bush’s past and the impact of GOP adviser Karl Rove. The following is an edited version of that interview.

Larry King: Were you ever — I don’t want to use the word scared — were you ever worried last night?

Bill Maher: Why? What happened?

(LAUGHTER)

I think, you know, we all had this paranoid feeling like we’re Charlie Brown and they’re going to snatch the football away again. So, you know, until about when he won Pennsylvania, that’s when it started to look pretty good for the people who were for him.

    I find Bill Maher and his comments repulsive. Shame on CNN and Larry King for giving him a medium to express his views. As a physician, I find his comments on religious people having a neurological disorder insensitive and ignorant. My grandmother died from a documented neurological disorder, ALS. This was a horrible and tragic disease. The same can be said about MS, Parkinson’s disease, etc.
