Well, So Much for 'Politically Incorrect'

How Bill Maher finally learned to stop worrying and publicly embrace Political Correctness  — not to mention Big Brother.

Andrew Breitbart dropped by Bill Maher’s Real Time on HBO tonight, and caused Maher to finally drop the mask — or as Noel Sheppard writes, “And here’s where it got good. Readers are strongly advised to watch the video to see Maher’s expression when Breitbart nails him:”

ANDREW BREITBART: So you’re, you’re officially not a Libertarian anymore, right? I mean, this position…

MAHER: Well..

BREITBART: …has run so far from the Libertarian position. Is this, so you admit that you have more of a, you know, European socialist leaning perspective on this issue?

(AUDIENCE LAUGHTER)

BREITBART: Why is that funny?

The look on Maher’s face at this moment said it all:

MAHER: I’m, I’m not afraid, it’s not, I’m not afraid to say European socialism works.

As Noel adds, “Exactly. Quite a strange position for a man that claims to be a Libertarian.”

Will the last person in Old Media who hides behind the thin veil of “objectivity” please turn out the Al Gore-approved twisty bulb florescent lights?
