New Rule for Bill Maher

New Rule for HBO’s Bill Maher: Make your “New Rules” biting and trashy enough to elicit more than a single hiccup in Washington. Last week Maher issued a new rule for TWT columnist and Drudge’s Joe Curl.

Few talked about it. Curl hadn’t heard of it and had no comment. He earned the rule for denouncing President Obama in a recent TWT column for not acknowledging the death of one of the Beastie Boys.

Maher flashed a picture of Curl and read the new rule: “A columnist for the right wing Washington Times suggested Obama is racist for not noticing the death of one of the Beastie Boys because he was white must be promoted to Fox News.” He added, “That is such a spectacular piece of hackery, I can’t believe Sean Hannity didn’t think of it first. It should be a reverse Pulitzer.”
