Bill Maher Calls Antonin Scalia and Michele Bachman 'The Exact Same Idiot'
On this week's REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER, the host took on this week's odd news that both Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia publicly addressed their concerns about the end of days and the devil (respectively) in the same week.
About Bachman, he noted "If you think the world is about to end, that's your right, but you don't get to vote on next year's budget because it doesn't concern you." His take on Scalia? "It'd be one thing if Mr. Scalia sold pizza for a living, but this is a man we go to to interpret our laws. It's like smelling a gas leak and calling an exorcist."
