Bill Maher Calls for Class War: In the Words of Charlie Sheen's Audience, "This is Bullshit, and I Want My Money Back"

On last night's Real Time, Bill Maher responded to the budget debacle by calling for an all-out class war. "As long as we've got three wars going, America needs to add one more: a class war," Maher said. "As the good people of Detroit told Charlie Sheen last Saturday night, 'This is bullshit, and I want my money back.'"

He carried the Charlie Sheen theme a bit further, joking, "If you think a guy living large and rubbing your nose in it is funny, here's one you'll really love: you have to pay your taxes next week, and General Electric does not."
