In what is probably the most ingenuous political metaphor ever said on national television, “Real Time” host Bill Maher equated Republican thinking to the Casey Anthony verdict.
“Yes, Republican base, you are just like that jury. It is pathetically clear who is killing the middle class, but you keep letting them get away with murder,” Maher lashed out.
“If you’re a working-class American who still votes Republican then you don’t get to bitch about that verdict.”
Maher went on to condemn Republican lawmakers and voters:
[Half of American voters] say ‘I’m with the party that cuts all these programs for real people, for the 99 percent. Planned Parenthood, environmental protection, college, health care, infrastructure, but holds the line on private jets.’ Voting for them is as stupid as voting not guilty for the mom who lost her baby for a month and went looking at a wet t-shirt contest.
