Want to know why Maher used to side with libertarians quite a bit back in the day but these days mocks the hell out of them? Well he has finally answered that question for all of you who think he turned traitor.

On this week's episode of "Real Time," Bill Maher used his final "New Rule" of the night to take on Libertarianism and the conservatives whose obsessions with Ayn Rand have "ruined" the political philosophy for him.

Once a supporter of Libertarianism and its views on government intervention, Maher explained why he thinks politicians such as Paul Ryan and Rand Paul are "intellectually stuck in their teen years" and have turned a once promising movement into a free market-obsessed, "nanny state"-fearing delusion.

Maher went on to defend his new views on Libertarianism by mocking the party's tendency to reject government services even when they are arguably very useful:

"To everyone who keeps trying to shame me about abandoning my Libertarian moorings, my message is this: I didn't go nuts, this movement did. Like when you see a stop light, your reaction should be 'Great, an easy way to ensure we don't all crash into each other,' not,'How dare the government tell me when I can and cannot go!"

All parties are dissolving these days. No one wants to take responsibility, just blame it on the other. Maher was dead on Rand Paul and Paul Ryan in this bit.

Maher cares about maher and no one else. He self centered and selfish. He thinks he can say anything about anyone and get away with it because he is a "political comedic commentator". It is a shame no one has called him out on some of his comments such as when he called one woman a c**t. Until the left stands up with the right and firmly chastises Maher for his actions and his mouth, he will continue.

Thank you for kind, polite, and civil response. Too bad that there is nothing to indicate that you have none of what your name indicates that you have.

The reason humor enrages people is because there is a huge amount of truth involved. Truth does hurt.

Very funny,thanks for sharing. I have seen Bill live twice and haven't been disappointed yet. Even when heckled he can handle himself just fine. Back in January of this year he was heckled in Memphis by a incoherent redneck and responded by telling him he wasn't helping his stereo type. LMAO!

And you defended Limbaugh for calling a woman a "s!ut"? Doe, no one cares what you think because we all know what a two faced hypocrite attention hore you have made yourself to be in Topix.
