With Grover Norquist’s help, Bill Maher once again made a fool of himself Friday evening.

In the middle of an HBO Real Time discussion about ObamaCare, the host seemed shocked to hear that Bob Dole isn’t a real conservative leading Norquist to derisively comment to former Congressman Connie Mack (R-Fl.), “He doesn’t understand the difference between Reagan and Dole” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

HBO's Bill Maher wrote a check Friday evening that his body clearly can't cash.

During his "New Rules" segment, the Real Time host called Dr. Ben Carson a "drooling idiot" who's "half brilliant brain surgeon, half Tea Party dumbass" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

HBO’s The Newsroom debuts its second season tonight (Sunday) at 10 PM EDT/PDT. The preachy and sanctimonious left-wing dialogue from creator/writer Aaron Sorkin often came across as unintentional near-parody of MSNBC’s old Countdown with Keith Olbermann, none more so than in the self-righteous commentary delivered by anchor “Will McAvoy,” played by Jeff Daniels, in the first season finale.

“McAvoy” went on a diatribe about the evils of the Tea Party, a particularly alien from reality plot line given what we’ve learned since that Tea Party groups were victims of government abuse by the IRS.

Professor and activist Cornel West made a comment Friday evening guaranteed to anger people on the left.

In an HBO Real Time discussion about the use of drones, after calling the current President a “war criminal” for killing innocent civilians, West observed that most liberals are “morally bankrupt” because they’d condemn George W. Bush for doing this but refuse to voice opposition to Barack Obama (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Like so many in the liberal media, Bill Maher is deeply concerned that George Zimmerman might end up being acquitted for killing Trayvon Martin.

On HBO’s Real Time Friday, the host joked, “If you are a Korean who owns a grocery store in Compton, you might want to get the fire extinguishers ready now” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

The ink on the SCOTUS ruling is barely dry, but Hollywood is already set to start celebrating the gay victory with more propaganda films. First up? HBO’s new documentary about the lawyers and gay couples who brought down Prop 8.

According to the New York Times, HBO announced this week that it is mere months away from finishing up a special documentary that will “chronicle the court battle to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage.” But the film won’t just showcase the legal battle; it will focus in on the gays involved – the “story of the couples behind the case.”

GOP strategist Ana Navarro is a CNN regular for good reason – she's the type of Republican the liberal media welcomes in their studios.

Now she's ripped a pro-life group for being "incomprehensible" in opposing Sen. Rob Portman's (R-Ohio) support of gay marriage. Navarro is so much a "big tent Republican," she lectured opponents of same-sex marriage back in March to "get into the 21st century."

It’s really been amazing this past week watching liberal media members that for years have been complaining about Republican filibusters almost universally celebrate Texas state Senator Wendy Davis’s (D) filibuster of an abortion bill that clearly would have passed if she hadn’t.

Count Bill Maher amongst the hypocrites, for having just two months ago called the filibuster a “quiet coup” that is a Constitutional problem, the HBO Real Time host Friday referred to Davis as a “new political star” and her actions as “heroic” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

As NewsBusters reported almost ad nauseum, Anthony Bourdain on his 9PM Sunday CNN program Parts Unknown regularly uttered profanities including varieties of the S-word without being censored.

Yet on Friday’s Stroumboulopoulos which airs at 11PM, Bill Maher was censored when he said “bulls—t” (video follows with commentary):

Bill Maher may have said one of the dumbest – and therefore funniest! – things ever to come out of his mouth Friday.

Appearing on CNN’s Stroumboulopoulos, Maher said, “You have to really be smart” to get on his HBO Real Time show (video follows with transcript and commentary):

As HBO’s preachy leftist drama “The Newsroom” about an Olbermann-type “news” show heads into its second season, Lacey Rose at The Hollywood Reporter revealed a raft of MSNBC personalities were part of 13 paid consultants series creator Aaron Sorkin hired to provide “realism” to the program.

Chris Matthews, Lawrence O’Donnell, Alex Wagner, and S.E. Cupp were all brought on board, as well as “MSNBC Republicans” Susan del Percio and Mark McKinnon.
