Bill Maher's Audience Sad About Arafat's Impending Departure

Monday, November 08, 2004

Just to give you an idea of where the fans of Bill Maher stand, when the Real Time host announced at the beginning of his show tonight that the Jew-hating, terror enabling Yasser Arafat will "soon be leaving office" due to his recently reported ailments, the sympathizing crowd booed in condolence! A half-astonished Maher sarcastically replied back, "Yeah, like he was such a great guy!"

I'll have a link to the transcript when it becomes available. I still can't get over the fact that these people respect Yasser Arafat more than President Bush. A skit where Maher pretends to be an Abu Ghraib prisoner as a result of Bush's victory drew much laughter, as did his jokes implying that Bush (a true friend of Israel) is an enemy of civil liberties. Yeah, try telling that to a Jewish settler who's afraid to eat at a public restaurant in Tel Aviv because a suicide bomber belonging to Arafat's PLO party may strike at any moment.
