Bill Maher's New Rules for The Lemon Party

John Wayne quote about stupidity

In my review and recap of the Real Time with Bill Maher, episode 332 which aired on October 17, 2014, Going Viral, I talked about the stupid-virus.  It’s far more dangerous than the ebola virus—with ebola about half of the people recover. Just about every one wh self-identifies as a member of the tea party has it and and they are out amongst us spreading the virus.

The final New Rules segment was “The Lemon Party.”  I guess he meant that the opposite of the Tea Party is the Lemon Party. 

Currently, Democrats win every demographic group except white males.  Maher wanted to give Democratic candidates a few pointers on talking to white men.  As he said, “I am a strong powerful beautiful white male” so I know how to talk to “whitely.”

Maher said Democrats don’t understand “what white people want.”  Basically, he advised Democrats to reinforce whitey’s prejudices –talk about hard work, tell blacks to pull up their pants, and tell them how much you love dads and small business. Talk like John Wayne and talk about “kicking ass.” Never be like Neville Chamberlain; be like Wilt Chamberlain who will duke in your face.

Here’s a video clip of the segment.
