Maher's Slimiest & Silliest: Bork a 'Racist,' BP Deliberately Not Stopping Leak, Limbaugh a Childish 'Fat Bully'

Collating my Friday night tweets on Bill Maher, my nominations for the slimiest, most paranoid and dumbest quotes from Maher on his HBO show, Real Time:

♦ Leaping from Rand Paul to Robert Bork: "Here's another guy, like Rand Paul, who was against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. He was for literacy tests, he was for a poll tax....Can we look back and just say Robert Bork was a racist who shouldn't have been on the court?"

♦ Great insight into the Gulf of Mexico oil leak: "Do you think BP could end this oil gushing out of the ocean if they just blew up the well and tapped it and they are not doing so because there's still money to be made from the oil coming out of the well?"

♦ Accusing conservatives of being immature by issuing juvenile insults: "Rush Limbaugh is a child. But he gets his way because he's the fat bully on the playground."
