Bill Maher Asks Why Everything Has To Be Political (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Bill Maher closed Friday's episode of "Real Time" with a fundamental question: "Since when does everything in America have to be political?"

He broached the topic by first addressing the outrage many conservatives seem to feel every time Michelle Obama appears on television: "If seeing this nice lady on TV saying she likes the movies or nutrition or exercise fills you with rage, get help."

But Maher made it clear he wasn't making a point about the first lady, but about the increasing need Americans feel to draw a line in the sand... any sand, any time.

"Eating a corn dog used to be just a guilty pleasure, now it's a blow for freedom against the radical Obama nutrition agenda," Maher explained. He went on to cite numerous examples of over-politicizing, finally landing on the media: "There's Fox for conservatives, MSNBC for liberals and CNN for airports."
