It's getting to where you can't turn on your TV without seeing Obama. Who does he think he is, Dick Cheney? Come on, sir, you don't have to be on television every minute of every day.
Wow! I don't think I've heard Maher get onto the celebrity-in-chief like that before. He doesn't stop there either:
Remember during the campaign when John McCain attacked Obama for acting like a celebrity and we all laughed at the grumpy old shellshocked fool? Well, it turns out he was right. Sorry, senator.
He goes on to criticize how much much he is on TV and even how the media has thrown softballs at the One.
Then, he knocks it out of the park with this epiphany:
See, this is why I don't want my president to be a TV star: Because TV stars are too worried about being popular -- and too concerned with getting renewed.
I agree with you on this point Bill. In fact, us conservatives have been saying that very same thing since early 2008. It's good to see that you finally reached the same conclusion we reached over a year ago.
Of course, he takes several swipes at the Republicans, but it was nice to see someone on the left to finally acknowedge Obama's celebrity status and the pitfalls of such a persona.
