Bill Maher: Dan Savage lets loose on Mary Cheney
On the presumed moral high ground of Catholicism in the Hawaiian marriage equality fight:
Maher: Their Catholic bishop there, I think his name is Bishop Silva, said something about how children who are in gay, you know adopted by gay parents have a greater chance of committing suicides. That must be bullshit.
Savage: That's total bullshit. He must be confusing children with gay parents with children who are raped by Catholic priests... Sorry, I am just done being lectured about children and their safety by Catholic fucking bishops, priests, cardinals... The pope himself has let it go... the new pope, who I kind of dig, has let it go, but it hasn't sunk down...
On Alec Baldwin:
Maher: Let me ask you one more question. Alec Baldwin this week was suspended from his MSNBC show because he called the papparazzi guy a
Savage: cocksucking faggot. I can say it.
Maher: You can say it. Oh, I could say it too, c'mon.
Savage: But I can do it.
Maher: I'm warning you. People are going to know you're out after tonight.
Savage: God, I hope my son isn't watching!
On Mary Cheney and her wife:
They're wealthy dykes who until 10 minutes ago couldn't give a flying fuck about the rights of same sex couples in the state where they live or any other state. $2500 check to Mitt Romney in 2012. Voted for Mitt Romney in 2012, who unlike her sister, Liz (...saying it's a state issue, states should be able to decide) Romney wanted to rewrite the constitution to ban gay marriage in every state, even then overturning them in states where they'd already been legalized. Romney was a thousand times worse than Liz and Mary wrote that fucker a check.
On the GOP empathy problem:
Maher: He [Dick Cheney] turned on this before Obama did.
Savage: That's right.
Maher: And this, to me, is one of the big problems with Republicans. They only seem to have empathy
Savage: When it happens to them.
Maher: When it happens to them.
Savage: Nancy Reagan is for stem cell research because Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer's disease. Rush Limbaugh is for drug treatment as opposed to incarceration because he got his ass addicted to drugs. Megan Kelly on Fox News is for maternity leave after she pushes out a brat, but not before.
