On Friday night’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” during its online “Overtime” segment, Schmidt tersely responded to a viewer question about McCain’s selection of Palin to be his running mate:
MAHER: Steve Schmidt, ‘Is it possible you picked Sarah Palin the wrong year?’ Oh, my. ‘Could she have swung the women vote in 2012 enough to have put Romney in the White House?’
MAHER: No? That’s your answer?
MAHER: Never again. Your feeling is there never is a good time for Sarah Palin?
MAHER: Well, do you think she has learned anything in the years since?
Yeah I don't think there are very many rational people in this country that would disagree with Schmidt's potion on this. In fact in my opinion he demonstrated remarkable restraint.
Speaking of restraint, or the lack thereof, the last life raft full of Palin worshipers over at the Sea O'Pee took great umbrage at Schmidt for stating the obvious:
Yeah, well we feel the same way about you too, skookums.
Maher is killing two birds with one stone with this kind of footage. First, Misogynist Maher loves any opportunity to disrespect Governor Palin so it makes sense he’d play footsie with Stevie and give him a chance to dis her. Second, he’s putting the spotlight on an even bigger self-important loudmouth buffoon than himself who he wants the public to perceive as a leading voice in the Republican party, not only because Schmidt is endlessly repulsive and thus by connection so is the GOP but also because Snakeoil Steve helps confirm that even the “leading voices” of the Republican party shudder at what a horrible mistake the Palin choice was in 2008.
They then go on to dredge up every bit of information they can (Almost exclusively from Right Wing sources of course) to attack Maher and Schmidt. And do so with such fervor and zeal that it is actually quite comical.
"Yeah Maher is a misogynist and a socialist, and Steve Schmidt is ungrateful, and bald, and probably smells funny."
All I can say is that those poor schmucks over at the Sea O'Pee can bail til their little arms fall off, and they will NEVER manage to remove enough sea water to bring the Palin political Titanic up from the seabed of irrelevancy on which it now rests.
But hey, as long as they are willing to try, we are willing to laugh at their efforts.
