Seems Bill Maher is at it again. You remember him, famous for wishing Dick Cheney had been killed while at an American outpost in Afghanistan. Unlike this next, there was no humor involved. Bet Maher was thrilled beyond words at Cheney’s recent heart attack though.
His latest attempt at death humor involves Glenn Beck. On his HBO show, he made this statement during his opening monologue.”When we see crazy, senseless deaths like this, we can only ask why, why, why couldn’t it have been Glenn Beck?” The reference is to John Bedell, a disturbed individual who opened fire near the Pentagon a couple of days ago and was killed by Pentagon police.
It was bad enough that Maher tried to milk the tragic event for humor. I just cannot countenance that at all, regardless of the object. What is worse to me is that the audience reaction. What was it? Alas, it was laughter and applause. I can only hope that after reflecting on their behaviour, all would be ashamed;or at least a few of them.
