Transcribed partially by Tabacco from ‘Real Time With Bill Maher’, Nov. 22, 2013, Show -
Bill Maher: Do you think this fight with the sisters would still be going on if Dick Cheney were still alive? (Audience laughter uproar)
(After applause subsides) He’s what? Oh, I’m sorry! I had bad information.
(Looking aside) Are you sure? (Audience still in hysterics)
Dan Savage, Author ‘American Savage’: It is funny that you need a Dick to adjudicate a dispute between the lesbian and a straight sister!
Bill Maher: (waiving his finger) Don’t go there!
But, you know, it’s funny because they usually say that there are few things that make people understand about gay people; and one of them is having someone in your family. That is why Dick Cheney, a Conservative on every other issue, was sort of reasonable about this. After all, he turned on this before Obama did!
Dan Savage: That’s Right!
Bill Maher: And this to me is one of the big problems with the Republicans, it’s that they only seem to have empathy (Both together) “WHEN IT HAPPENS TO THEM!”
Bill Maher: Abortion!
Dan Savage: Right! Rush Limbaugh is for drug treatment as opposed to incarceration because he got his ass addicted to drugs.
Bill Maher: Right!
Dan Savage: Meagan Kelly on Fox News is for Maternity Leave after she pushes out a brat, but not before!
Once it happens to a Republican, there’s the ‘Empathy Gap’ – they can’t imagine someone else’s circumstances!
Bill Maher: What they all need – the Republicans – is a poor person in their family! (Audience applause)
To hear the “Best Gay Joke Ever” from Dan Savage’s own mouth, go to:
Then watch those 2-Conservative male guests squirm!
Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.
