Growing up, we were all told that honesty was the best policy. This is the sort of sage advice that is misunderstood by many, however.
You see, honesty is the best policy, but that’s not only true for those who are speaking the truth. Overt honesty also allows the rest of humanity to get a good look at the speaker, and to judge their place in society based on what they truly believe.
In the case of Bill Maher, he has spoken some ugly truth this week, and the Democrats are now left to pick up the pieces of what he said.
From Friday’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher:
“Democrats are the party of choice. We can choose not to completely fuck ourselves over this. I know, it’s a sex scandal, and in normal times, that’s what we do instead of issues, but there are actually some pretty big problems going on right now. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but America has turned into a failed state that does a worse job keeping its citizens alive during a pandemic than Cambodia. And to me, that’s a little more important than Tara Reade achieving closure. She says Biden attacked her and he says he didn’t. Those are their positions. How about this for yours, don’t know, never will, don’t care. I care in the macro about women being attacked, of course. But on this one? I’m with Bogie, who said, ‘I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.’”
He concluded, “I’m no good at being noble either, but if in 1993, Joe Biden had grabbed my nuts in a corridor…and I had this knowledge, and revealing it could hurt the guy running against Trump, I’d save it for my memoirs. I’d like to think that I’d have a little more perspective. We have a president who says drink bleach. Jeez, you waited 27 years, it couldn’t hold another few months? That’s what I would like to ask Ms. Reade, why now? I’m not saying, why not 27 years ago? I understand it can take victims years to come forward. I’m saying, why not before Super Tuesday? Why not last fall, when we still had a dozen other candidates to choose from? Why wait until Biden is our only hope against Trump, and then take him down? This story is gathering an importance it should not have. There is so much at stake in this next election. The entire world needs to be put back together like Humpty-Dumpty. Why should one person’s victimhood trump everyone else’s?”
Sure, Maher gets points for his honesty, but he’s also thrown the entirety of the Democratic Party under the bus in the meantime.
