Bill Maher: Republicans Are Scared of Any Black People Not Wearing Cosby Sweaters (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Mar 21st 2011 4:50PM
On 'Real Time With Bill Maher' (Friday, 10PM ET on HBO) Maher argued that the Republicans aren't serious about governing because they focus on kooky fringe issues rather than what ails the nation.

Maher gave examples of these fringe issues, including an incident during the 2008 election in which two members of the New Black Panther Party were photographed outside a voting booth in Philadelphia armed with police-style batons. Maher admonished Republicans for continuing to obsess over this photograph, over two years later, and suggested their fixation has to do with a general fear of black people.

"But, it's time you understood something," Maher said, addressing a hypothetical member of the Republican Party. "Every black person scares you. Unless they look like Urkel, talk like Colin Powell and wear Bill Cosby sweaters, you fill your adult diaper."

Ah, the Cosby sweater. Giving comedians material since 1984.

I could take Bill Maher in some areas he would not get out of the car and these are white neighborhoods.

I rather be a conservative nut job than a liberal with no nuts or no job.
