Maher breaks the first rule of satire

Bill Maher Slams Tim Tebow on Twitter

On Saturday, Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos had a very bad day as they lost to the Buffalo Bills 40 - 14.  That led so-called comedian Bill Maher to tweet: “Wow, Jesus just f****d #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler ‘Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.’
Fox News’ Eric Bolling responded:  “Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can’t even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christmas Eve. #straighttohellBill”

Eventually I'll learn not to dip my toe into these things, but until then, here we go.  I get satire; I get hyperbole; in fact, I engage in a fair amount of it myself. Sometimes, I'll even get a reader who emails me upset until I remind them that they shouldn't read every headline I write literally until reading the story.

When you're a young and impressionable man, they send you--cleanly shaven, of course--to Satire School. On the first day, before they assign you lockers, they write on the chalkboard the fundamental rule: No Hitler jokes.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
