Maher: There’s gotta be something funny about Obama

November 7, 2008

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.
