Duing a recent interview with Larry King, erstwhile Bush basher Bill Maher had some backhanded praise for the president:
I mean can you imagine if there was a terrorist organization that took over the country on our northern border, which would be Canada, and they started shelling us in our northern cities and Minnesota and Bangor, Maine was being shelled, what do you think George Bush would do? I think he would nuke them before breakfast. And, look, you know I don’t like George Bush but he is the best president we’ve ever had on Israel because for some reason he gets that. I think the reason he gets it is because he’s a crazy evangelical Christian. He thinks the world is going to end in our lifetime, so Israel needs to be in the hands of the people who it was in the hands of when Jesus returns which would be the Jews. That’s why the Christians do so.
