"Forget about bringing the troops home Iraq - we need to get the troops home from World War II," Maher said. "Can anybody tell me why in 2009, we still have more than 50,000 troops in Germany and 30,000 in Japan? At some point these people are going to have to learn to rape themselves."
This is not a boycott, nor is it an attempt to induce HBO to change their programming. They chose to give Maher a platform knowing what the man believed. That's their choice. I don't have to listen to it, and I damn sure do not have to pay the guy's salary. Maher belongs in the same wing of Arkham with Moore and Olbermann and the rest of the rabid yellow dog Democrats, but until that blessed day that idiots like him are kicked off the air because Americans have decided that they are tired of listening to hate disguised as smug arrogance, I'll just do without the HBO family of networks.
And they can do without me.
