Watch: Bill Maher Says Republicans “Love Truth, Hate Facts”

 Bill Maher made an appearance on CNN with Fareed Zakaria yesterday, and made some typically incisive, brilliant comments about Congress. In characterizing Republicans on the public option, he quipped, “the Republicans would be, 'No, our health plan is Drop Dead'... or, they maybe would have improved it: 'Go Screw Yourself Plus.” He also criticized the Dems for capitulating on the topic and characterized the Republicans as loving the truth, but hating the facts. A worthwhile critique.

Alternately, Maher also makes some remarks about wanting to make jokes about Obama being “a gangster” and “Suge Knight,” which is pretty racially dubious, kinda like calling Michelle Obama his “baby mama.” Love you Bill, but...
