‘Are You There Russia? It’s Me, Dipshit’: Maher Rips on Palin’s Memoir

Bill Maher couldn’t contain his glee on Friday night’s episode of “Real Time” while rattling off some alternative titles for Sarah Palin’s upcoming memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” had it been ghostwritten by several famous writers—even some long-dead ones.  —KA

Rosemary Molloy you are a refreshing dose of irony. The only rational response to something as horrible as Palin.

What drives me nuts is that title, “Going Rogue…,” which suggests that Palin is a fresh new voice of the disenfranchised, a bold woman of the people deviating from the norm to strike out alone on behalf of truth and justice for all….
Pardon me while I upchuck.  Maybe the book would be more realistically called “Going The Same Old Way Reactionaries Always Do….”

Bill Maher has done a great job of his spin on Palin’s book. Let’s face it Sarah Palin is a satire of herself and sadly a comentary on just how ignorant, willfully ignorant that American’s are becoming. She has revealed herself to be an habitual liar, a person unable to accept truth if it conflicts with her fantasy world. In fact she has become George Bush. No matter how badly the Democrats do, we do not need another Bush in the White House, even named Palin.

Maher is getting tiresome. He needs a new shtick.
