Hate him or love him, at least you can say you know what you're getting with comedian/commentator Bill Maher. Bill was in rare form on his HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher, when he gave his closing monologue. Bill compared the thinking of Republicans with that of the Casey Anthony verdict.

Here's what he said:

"And before you accuse me of equating the Casey Anthony verdict with Republican thinking -- save your breath, I am. I'm equating them. If you're a working-class American who still votes Republican then you don't get to bitch about that verdict," said Maher.

Maher went on to explain his assertion:

[Half of American voters] say 'I'm with the party that cuts all these programs for real people, for the 99 percent. Planned Parenthood, environmental protection, college, health care, infrastructure, but holds the line on private jets.' Voting for them is as stupid as voting not guilty for the mom who lost her baby for a month and went looking at a wet t-shirt contest.

The HBO host wrapped up his monologue saying:

We're now being told that multinational corporations bring home their current overseas profits of $1.4 trillion, they'll only be taxed five percent on it because we're told it will create jobs. It won't. It didn't, just like the last time we tried it in 2004. Companies took the savings and paid it out to themselves in dividends. Yes, Republican base, you are just like that jury. It's pathetically clear who's killing the middle class but you keep letting them get away with murder.
