Glenn Beck is also a little nutty. You know, I mean, this Jared guy’s chalkboard in his basement, I’m not sure it wouldn’t look that different than Glenn Beck’s chalkboard. Yes, I think it’s disingenuous for the right wing, as I’ve heard them say today, that we can’t make any connection here or else the — or the false equivalency argument that I hear, you know. There’s a lot of nuts on the left, too.

Stand-up comic and Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher really killed on Friday night with the penultimate joke in his “New Rules” segment. In an episode that featured an otherwise listless audience, the crowd roared with laughter when Maher joked that since the Grammy Awards featured the liberal dream of a mass gay wedding, conservatives should even things out with a mass shooting.
“Now that liberals have forwarded their agenda by inserting a mass gay wedding into the Grammys,” Maher said, “conservatives must match them tit-for-tat by having a mass shooting at the Country Music Awards.”

Remember when leftists on MSNBC thought that gun analogies should be banned from television and considered the equivalent of hate speech, and a CNN newsreader apologized on air for his guest using the word “crosshairs,” adding that “We’re trying to get away from using that kind of language.”
Good times, good times.
