Suge Knight

During his on appearance on 'Fareed Zakaria GPS' (Sunday, 10AM ET on CNN) Bill Maher bemoaned the fact that President Obama didn't behave more like Suge Knight, the often incarcerated hip-hop impresario who has a history of violent behavior and unethical business practices.

"He looks beaten down, that's what disturbs me," Maher said, in response to a question about how Obama is handling his mid-term defeat. "I thought, when we elected the first black president, as a comedian, I thought in two years that I'd be making jokes about what a gangsta he was. Not that he's President Wayne Brady, but I thought we were getting Suge Knight."

"(Obama) just seems to be another in a long line of democrats that comes across as wimpy and wussy or whatever word you want to ascribe to it," Maher continued.

Apparently, the word Maher uses for wimpy and wussy is "Wayne Brady," which seems a bit unfair to the Emmy-winning actor and comedian. Maybe if Brady assaults someone -- or dangles Vanilla Ice off a 20 story balcony -- he might finally earn Maher's respect.

We winced. We cringed. Then we watched it again.

Carey's, uh, loosened speech was the first genuinely awkward moment this award show season, but there were many actors, filmmakers, and musicians before her who've heard their name called, stepped to the podium, and made things a little weird for everyone.
