Bill Maher Suggests The GOP Nominate Tim Tebow For President (VIDEO)

Last Friday comedian Bill Maher suggested the GOP nominate Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow for president in 2012, though it wasn't the most flattering of proposed nominations since Maher is never one to mince words.

"Tim Tebow is so cuckoo for Christianity that he used to write Bible verses in the charcoal under his eyes. Creepy to some, but for redneck America, they couldn't love this guy more if he was sculpted out of bacon," Maher said.

Just before explaining that Tebow was picked by the Broncos despite his inability to throw like a girl ("Naomi Campbell has a more impressive completion rate with cellphones") Maher said that the quarterback's reputation for Tebowing -- a knight-like prayer pose -- would make him right at home among other presidential hopefuls.

New Rule: since all Republican voters want in a candidate is a devout Christian who one, doesn't know shit from Shinola and two, is proud of that, and three, isn't named Mitt--they should just go ahead and nominate Tim Tebow.

That's right, take Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, the fan favored Christian who's in over his head on the football field, and put him somewhere where fan favored Christians who are in over their head are welcome: the Republican presidential race...

A Yahoo sports article on Tebow's performance used words like 'atrocious', 'terrible', 'not even close to ready' and 'oh my God'. And I thought, 'Funny, those are the same things I've been thinking about Herman Cain.
