Man’s Best Friend, But Still

Do you have a dog? I do, and Bill Maher thinks she and I share an I.Q.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my puppy to pieces and she’s smart – for a dog – but I still like to think that I’m at least incrementally smarter.

Not so Bill Maher. Obama’s approval ratings are down and the only explanation? As he told George Lopez:

“I’ll tell you this about Americans – about the American electorate, the voter,” Maher said. “They love a winner. You know, as soon as he passed health care, [his approval rating] went up 15 points. They don’t understand the issues. They’re too stupid. They’re like a dog. They can understand inflection. They can understand fear. They can understand dominance. They don’t understand issues. But when he won on that issue, he went up.” (via NewsBusters)

Now there’s also some irony to this story Do you see the bit there where Maher claims the President’s approval rating went up 15 points when the health care legislation passed? Yeah. Didn’t happen. You’d have to be stupid to say that.

Gallup characterized his job approval as “not fundamentally changed” and Marist showed a 2 point bump. Other polls showed a dip.

So the question for Maher isn’t, “are you smarter than a fifth grader” but “are you smarter than a dog.” For him, I think the jury may still be out.

    Maher is not smarter than a dog. In fact, he’s probably more stupid than one. He does have loyalty yet would give it up when the next “bit*h” shows up at the Playboy Mansion…

  2. Maher and the rest of the drooling leftist commentators will call you a “hater”, while making fun of everything about you. They hate themselves and knock you down to make themselves feel better
