|Bill Maher took the right wing blowhards to task for lashing out at Pres. Obama for daring to say something about the consequences of professional football injuries this week, saying, “conservatives must be told that President Obama saying he wouldn't let a son of his play pro football, is not controversial. It's common sense, like telling your kids not to play in traffic. But on the right, any critique of our holy religion football is blasphemy, because real men don't point out facts, or consider consequences -- and brain injuries ‘r’ fun!” He continues, “somehow we’ve gone from Teddy Roosevelt’s ‘speak softly and carry a big stick’ to Chris Christie’s speak loudly and be a big dick.’” He takes a good look at the difference between masculinity and bullying, saying, “bullying isn’t a masculine virtue: standing up to bullies, is.” Video.
