The ever-classy Bill Maher still thinks that those nasty “teabaggers” were laughing at his electric car and not him. Maybe that Volt will turn out to be as good an investment as that $1 million Obama Super-PAC donation.

    My guess – when TSHTF, tea party types will be much better off than Bill Maher. Like Hank Williams Jr. says, a country boy can survive.

  • Dio Heerai

    At $50,000 a pop for those mobile toaster ovens with a 40 mile range I guess Maher and his horde MUST HAVE BLOWN HALF OF L.A. for the down payment

  • Discontentwliars

    Just wait till he needs to replace the battery. Recycle problems, costs and environmental impact ruins the “Good” they are saving. Electricity costs start going up next year, since Obama’s shutting down electrical generating plants for environmental impacts. Yea, we all pay higher costs too. Obama’s right – it doesn’t raise taxes, just collects more because of costs. Yes it’s your pocket he’s getting it from. It’s all you rich car owners, that drive the gas using cars. Does it sound like Bill has some inside info? Nobody wins in this!

    Bill, people who make fun of your electric car aren’t teabaggers.

    Teabaggers are those young men you pay to come to your house on the weekends.

      funny line, and probably very true !!

      Wasn’t that filthy expression introduced to us one of them?

    • Karen

      Oh. Please tweet that to @BillMaher.

      Apparently, Bill prefers to be the teabaggee

    #CaliforniaGasPrices: teabaggers who’ve made fun of my electric car pls think of me when ur in Shell restroom blowing a stranger for gas

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Hey Bill …. it would seem that blowing people for gasoline is strictly a fleebagger phenomenon …. we would never even consider such filth much less engage in it. Republicans have jobs and we can pay for our own gasoline …. but if you Dems have an Owebamaophone then you prolly likely do prostitute yourselves in Shell bathrooms for motel money as well as for crack, beer money and maybe gasoline for your stolen car, lol. BTW … we don’t necessarily hate electric cars but we do love to make fun of smug little racist jackanapes like you who don’t even realize your cheeky little electric cars run on coal, you fool!

    When Bill Mahrer says something funny, it will be the first time.

      @Garth Haycock:

      We’ll know, at that point, that it is just seconds until Armageddon.

    I’m making fun because if you spread the $40k price of the car over the car’s life, and add the increase in home electricity cost since he’ll be jumping tiers, he’ll be paying for far more than I am while I continue to use my 23mpg SUV to drive around with no car payment since it’s paid off. Basic math Bill, basic math.

    • TomJB

      I am curious about how much of a jump Volt owners see in home electricity bills. Ive never seen it in any story about the coal-powered car.

      • http://twitter.com/l4issez Conservative First

        I’ve seen mentions of it, but they’re not based out of California, or specifically L.A., where we have exponential tiers, prices jump pretty dramatically as you become a “wasteful user,” especially during peak times.

        That said, I can tell you how much of a jump my electricity bill makes when I power my petroleum powered car. ZERO!

        I like that name though, I’m going to start calling “electric” vehicles “Coal Powered Cars”…

  • GOP Girl

    Bill, you’re the human equivalent of the electric car. Small, boring, slow and hideous. It wasn’t your car they were laughing at.

    • Catchance

      Heh. Excellent.

  • GOP Girl

    And Bill, at least they’re blowing a stranger for good reason. You slap your mouth on strangers for seemingly no purpose at all.

    • TomJB

      Bill also has it entirely backwards. He routinely pays $1 million for the honor of performing the act.

  • carla5731

    High gas prices are just one of the many gifts of an Obama economy.

  • CalCon10

    So…plug that electric car in, and–MAGIC!–it’s got go juice. From nowhere. Amazing!

    • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

      I know right? I mean it’s not like there’s a specific bill you pay every month that will go up significantly when you plug the car in to charge it, am I right? And that said bill hasn’t skyrocketed since Obama took office has it? 😉

  • Sinjun

    just wait until he realizes that since most of our nations electricity comes from coal.. his car is really Coal powered >.> might take a while to sink in.

  • John (it true me am)

    So he’s paying for his “gas” at the end of the month in his power bill instead of at the pump, and payed an ungodly premium for an inferior product to be allowed to do so. Yep, we’re making fun of the electric car.

  • SideTraKd

    Most TEA Party members don’t live in the liberal cesspool of California..!

  • sleazyrider

    Harry Reid called me…said that he received a phone call from one of his gay buddies stating that Micheal Moore was seen sodomizing you Bill in some bath house in San Fran……Harry wouldn’t say it if it were not true…would he???Bill??

    Meanwhile, inside the Playboy Mansion:

    “What’s that stupid sound coming from outside?”
    “Crap, it’s that old toad in the electric car again!”
    “Quick, lock the door! We only have three hours until he makes it up the drive!”

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    @billmaher : You mad bro? Have fun with your little toy car! Zoom zoom! My car gets 41 mpg! While you’re on the side of the road with NO gas and NO electricity, I’ll speed on by, waving!

  • tsluf273

    Bill Maher continues to win friends, influence people.

  • Right Wired

    Yeah, just wait until he has to spend $6,000 to replace the battery pack.

  • rivers

    As someone who is scrimping to get my kids to and from school with these gas prices, I strikes me that Bill Maher’s vulgar and condescending tweets perfectly sum up the “compassionate” left. My concerns are real. Maher is a typical selfish lefty pig.

  • DrSamHerman

    And when his electricity bill goes up to $8 per kilowatt hour, will the jackass be laughing?

    Electric car Bill come on just doesnt look cool when you are picking up hookers

    EMTs need special training for accidents involving the coal burners…

    They have an unsettling tendency to explode if involved in an impact greater than 11mph.

    God bless those EMTs! They’ll pull Maher out anyway…

    I don’t think I would. We old men can’t move so fast…
