Just when you think Bill Maher can't say anything more outrageous, he does, referring to U.S. servicemen and recruits as "low-lying fruit" on his HBO show "Real Time with Bill Maher."
Remember Bill? He's the guy who praised the heroism of the 9/11 hijackers, leading the cancellation of his previous show, "Politically Incorrect."
Congressman Spencer Bachus has called Maher's latest comments treason, although I think that's a bit over the top. If making stupid, unpatriotic remarks was treason, we'd have put "Minuteman" Michael Moore in jail a long time ago.
No, fortunately, even insensitive, outrageous, imbecilic remarks like this one are Constitutionally protected.
The obvious question is: who keeps giving Bill Maher his own television shows?
