No. He didn't.
"Debbie Schlussel is a political commentator and attorney. [b]She is a frequent guest on ABC's "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher" [/b]and Fox News Channel. Click here to participate in an online discussion group of Debbie's commentary, and here to join the [b]unofficial Debbie Schlussel Fan Club[/b]. "
You a member of her fan club? Opinion pieces from a 'frequent guest' on his show don't cut the mustard. (funny, she doesn't wax nostalgic on the relative bravery of the hijackers)
Here's what Maher said:
[i]``We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away,'' Maher said. ``That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building - say what you want about it, it's not cowardly.'' [/i]
Now that's what he said. "We" means the military and the USA. He indicts everyone with wiggle room later, with help from a loyal apologist, your gal Debbie. Maher was letting us know that "we're" cowards. Well, Bill Maher - it didn't take too many years to fully turn his pissant comments on its ear.
Gobbles, I know it seems like Groundhog's Day, the way your ideas lose again and again, but it's Feb 3rd.
Get with the program and never prop up a guy who's willing to trash the USA when we were down. Never back a guy who respects in any way the most cowardly and destructive of terrorists history has to offer. In the end he'll run from his commentary with a snide comment or a joke and have a small fawning crowd there to enable him. Don't be in that crowd.
