Bill Maher has to work hard to top himself, but every so often, the pompous ass manages to pull it off.
In mocking the opening of the Bush Library in Dallas, Texas, during his opening monologue Friday — low hanging fruit for this notorious Bush-basher — Maher used the assassination of a U.S. president to take a cheap shot at President G.W. Bush and the entire state of Texas when he said: “The last person in that state to get near a schoolbook was Lee Harvey Oswald.”
Here is a brief transcript of Maher’s remarks, which are captured in the video below:
“Congratulations have to go out to someone very special, in my life, anyway. For 10 years he was.
This was a big week for our 43rd president, President Larry the Cable Guy. As you know, Wednesday they had the big opening of the Bush Library down in Texas. All five living presidents were there.
It was a once in a lifetime event: a library in Texas.
Oh, I kid. I kid Texas, but the last person in that state to get near a schoolbook was Lee Harvey Oswald.”
