Bill Maher hates the voices in Michele Bachmann's head
HBO yakker Bill Maher has a love/hate affair with Washington, D.C., whose politicos he routinely lampoons and lambastes on "Real Time."
Now he tells Capitol File magazine that he loves "the springtime, when Joe Biden's hair blooms." And he hates being "shouted down by the voices in Michele Bachmann's head."
It's familiar ground for Maher. He tagged Bachmann and Sarah Palin earlier this year as a pair of M.I.L.F.s - Morons I'd Like to Forget -- in an appearance with Chris Matthews on "Hardball."
MATTHEWS: What do you make of those two ladies when they came out and did sort of a competition, they showed up together looking - well, they are attractive ladies, let's say that, and they were very good at drawing that crowd up there in Minnesota, which I used to think was Hubert Humphrey and Gene McCarthy country, and now it's that country.
MAHER: Well, I think you're right. I think you hit on something there. They're attractive especially to the Republican Party, which is not known as a party that really does well with the opposite sex. Usually they're doughy white men and I think they look on Michele Bachmann and, and Sarah Palin, as you know, M.I.L.F.s and I agree, they're Morons I'd Like to Forget.
