On Bill Maher, Ronald Reagan, Search and My Blog

July 24, 2007 1 comment

I’ve mentioned earlier how I get a fair amount (ahem, relatively speaking) of traffic from plain old web search. This allows for a little bit of insight into “The Database of Intentions”, to quote John Battelle. In other words: people type funny shit and I get to laugh.

I went to see Bill Maher at Flint Center the other day; see complete review of his performance here. During the show, Maher claimed that Republicans had a newly blossomed man-crush on Reagan and that “they want to put him on a stamp so they can lick his ass”.

Unless you are totally uptight, this is pretty funny. But check out this screen shot of what someone searched for to get to my review (“Reagan stamp ass Bill Maher”):

Is it just me or can that search term be interpreted several different ways? Good luck, PowerSet!!!

Going to See Bill Maher tonight!

I am totally stoked. Bill Maher is a great comic, his propensity to continually Bush-bash notwithstanding. He is coming out to Flint Center in Cupertino tonight and I got me some tickets as a birthday gift (thanks)!!

I’ll send out a review after.

Update:

Just got back from the show! Bill Maher was awesome, it was totally weird to see him dressed like he was heading into the Hard Rock Cafe (very L.A.). For those of you that watch his show, you know he usually dresses in a pimpin suit.

Here are some of his lines (warning: proceed with caution, these are NC-17):

  • What is with the Republicans’ campy admiration of Reagan? They’re like gay guys with Streisand! These guys want to put him on a stamp so they can lick his ass!
  • I dont do Michael Jackson kid jokes because there was never any indisputable evidence that he bent the kids over and, you know…Catholic shit!
  • I dont think they should build a wall on the border with Mexico. They should build a WalMart! 2100 miles long! Immigrants come through the back, customers come through the front. But there is still only one cash register.
  • Gay marriage was the issue of 2004. Now it’s the immigrants. Brown is the new pink (ewww).
