Bill Maher Quotes

You know, this country is, I’ve said this before, I’m going to keep saying it, it’s a pitiful, helpless giant. Again, (America is) a stupid country with stupid people who don’t pay attention. – August 28, 2006 on Larry King Live (see pic to the left)
Crazy people who still think the government brought down the Twin Towers in a controlled explosion have to stop pretending that I’m the one who’s being naïve. How big a lunatic do you have to be to watch two giant airliners packed with jet fuel slam into buildings on live TV, igniting a massive inferno that burned for two hours, and then think, well, if you believe that was the cause… Stop asking me to raise this ridiculous topic on the show and start asking your doctor if Paxil is right for you  – September 14, 2007
