Maher instead likens Palin to other axed Fox News personality, Glenn Beck. After exiting Fox News, Beck took "patented brand of apocalyptic race baiting" (according to Maher) and went on to create his own web series that charges people $10 a month.
Last year, Beck made $80 million, landing him in seventh place on the Forbes wealthiest celebrities. Thus, Maher slams such pundits as “con men.”
Says Maher, "They don't care about winning elections; they care about separating rubes from their money. They discovered that there's a fortune to be made by keeping a small portion of America under the illusion that they are always under attack, from Mexicans or ACORN or Planned Parenthood or gays or takers, global warming hoaxers; it doesn't matter.”
“They don't want a majority; they want a mailing list, a list of the kind of gullible 'Honey Boo Boos' out there who think there's a 'War on Christmas' and the Socialist policies of our Kenyan President are so disastrous that the end of the world is coming."
