Gotta Watch: Maher's musings, dump truck chase, train track save

Glenn Beck like L. Ron Hubbard - Bill Maher’s appearance on Sunday’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” is getting a lot of attention online today. The host of “Real Time with Bill Maher” was asked how much he thinks the Tea Party is about religion.  Maher focused on FOX News’ Glenn Beck, saying, “I think he’s doing what some people before him have done, like L. Ron Hubbard, who is a novelist, and decided, ‘You know what? It’s a much easier gig to be a religious leader.’ ”

And Obama more Wayne Brady than Suge Knight - Maher also looked back on President Obama’s first two years, surprised that he’s more Wayne Brady than Suge Knight.

Teen dump truck heist -You may be asking yourself, who would want to steal a dump truck? The answer: one reckless teenager.  This harrowing police video shows the young driver as he rear-ends the police car and speeds away. Officials say his wild ride went on for more than fifty miles.

Close-call train rescue – This heart-stopping video from Spain shows a man as he topples over into subway tracks. Lucky for him, an off-duty police officer jumps in to save him just as a train arrives.

    Old man Hubbard went to the cupboard to get something to eat, but his followers ate it all.

    Beck and Maher in a cage match to the death, then execute the winner. Problem solved.

    I think Maher found it easier to be a political pundit than a comic.

    Bill Maher is right on target with the teabaggers like most republicans they are idiots that only believe what they want to it is like going to a bar and asking for legal advise from the local plumber happens to be sitting next to you or asking a lawyer about global warming do you think they would know what they are talking about or would they be feeding you some crap they heard from someone else in the bar it is amazing that the bible thumpers that love to believe in stories that is told to them from the bible but won't listen to scientist that eat breath and crap science about there findings it makes you stop and think who is really sub human

      lol. As soon as someone (you, Maher, etc) start ranting about "tea baggers" I generally check out. It's like I'm trying to talk to a bunch of 15-year old internet trolls.

    This moron (Bill Maher, of course) is just envious and jealous of Glenn Beck. I would not be surprised if he is being funded (under the table) by President NObama's supporters or his administration, or possible even worst, George "Zorro".

    CCN, would you report on this hypocritical "bufón" if he was NOT attacking Glenn Beck? Why don't you folks investigate who is funding his idiotic vitriol.

    Maher the Moron is definitely NOT a patriot!

    Both Glen and Bill are identical about the oposite spectrum of ideology. They are both entertainers when it comes down to it. Both do extensive research, and both are dismisive about data that doesn't support their cause. They each have thier own style but in the end they are both trying to do the same thing, entice masses to support their causes. In turn they know this will increase their influence and ratings which will line their pockets.

    I will say one thing, Maher is a better debater, and Glenn is a better actor. Maher will eat his opponents children for breakfast, and Glenn can weep a river on a moments notice. While I don't particularly enjoy either of their programs both have thier moments.

    Oh ya, if you want to good debate check the Bill O'Rielly – Bill Maher debate on Maher's show. Entertaining.

      Good analysis. Only thing missing was Beck's fake tears. At least Maher seems honest about how his feelings.

    Maher is, like all his liberal ilk, in denial. He can refuse to admit that the electorate is far right of him and his moonbat ideas, but he prefers to clamp his hands over his ears and yammer, "Nya, nya, nya, I can't hear you!". The only issue that Maher and I agree on is legalizing marijuana. Now, there's a conservative idea to limit big government.

    Hey CNN – Can I get a job with you? I've said for the last year that this is what Beck is planning. All of his actions point to this particularly odd career path. When the Beckster gave the commencement speech at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA this year it was the cherry on the Sunday (pun intended) ! The sheeple have been minus a leader since the Rev Fallwell bought the farm. Who better to fill in then the Beckster with surprise appearances from Ms. P who is also a JC freak and wanna-be leader but lacks integrity, knowledge, and morals. They would be perfect as the new modern day PTL Club host and hostess.

      Glenn Beck is an even more hideous human being, a megalomaniac, and an affront to Catholics everywhere.

    Why would anyone listen to Maher about anything. He doesn't realize it but he's exactly like Beck. He is just the mirror image. I don't care for either. They are both extremest.

    Your statement from the begining of your arguement is false. No true scientist will say that anything is absolue. A true scientist would say we are 99 percent sure. But what if? That is what science is all about. The what if. The scientist were not wrong, they just learn something new that adds to knowledge

    I live in the same city where this little punk stole that dump truck-he totaled one of our police cars and wrecked at least another two-he went in reverse on a major road in Stow in DELIBERATELY rammed several police cruisers.......he even threw items out the truck's windows at the cops chasing him. Not surprisingly, he has a juvy record already......he also had passengers, 13 year olds, who jumped out of the truck's cab early in on the chase.

    It may seem like a funny story, but this little punk put countless lives in danger and destroyed property all for a crazy joy-ride. He's to be charged as an adult, and will go to prison for quite a while I suspect.
