Bill Maher on Monday called the GOP the “Party of the Apes” and ripped Republicans for not repudiating Rep. Allen West — who, the comedian suggested, should be taken to a mental hospital.
“[T]he idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horsesh*t and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it. Or as I like to call it, ‘The Rise of the Party of the Apes,’” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” wrote on his blog.
Maher singled out two politicians as extremists: West and Richard Mourdock, the Republican nominee for Senate who defeated longtime Sen. Dick Lugar in a primary last month.
“[T]ake Allen West. Seriously, take him to the padded cell and give him 20 CCs of the high test,” Maher wrote, noting West’s remark that some 80 House Democrats are Communists. “And not one Republican said, ‘Allen, come on. You’re making us look dumb.’ Not one of the Republican candidates for president said anything. Because in today’s Republican Party, that’s not even edgy anymore. They probably saw him later on and were like, ‘Word, Allen. Word.’ Because that’s how they think black people talk.”
And a Progressive is a Communist.

He has always struck me as a very small person who is jealous to the bone. He's a useless liberal arts major...need I say more. In other words, he can spout stuff all day long, but doesn't know how to really DO anything. The perfect kind of person for TV la-la land.
He strikes me as an intolerant hateful small-minded man. He was probably bullied as a youngster and grew up to be a mean-spirited narrow-minded know-it-all......a "my way or the highway" kind of ignoramous.

Well, no, progressives aren't communists. Communists are communists, progressives are progressive. There is a difference.
The Democrats should have told the GOP to go shove it when they had a supermajority in the house and a strong majority in the senate.
The GOP spent more time trying to stop absolutely anything the Dems were trying to do to fix this economy, than they spent on trying to fix this economy themselves.
Now, they are going to turn around and with the help of FOX News and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart.com and TheBlaze.com and WND, blame the democrats for everything to try and sway the idiots out there to vote them back in.
The GOP won a large portion of seats in the House, where are the jobs at GOP?
...stapled to page two of O'bama's budget.
Party of the Apes is an apt statement!
You might be shocked, but that comparison, of reffering to people who disagree with you as sub-humans, makes you sound like an American Nazi.edit on 19-6-2012 by tovenar because: (no reason given)

"Progressive" is the code-word du jour for socialist; so yes there is some overlap.
Yeah, libs like you

I ask because all I ever see on this site are people saying what these ideologies are not and really never defining what they are.
