Real Time's Bill Maher took a whack at the right and the type of people they rush to prop up as heroes during his New Rules segment. From the latest to make the list, Kim Davis, the hypocritical clerk refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay people when she's been married four times -- to Cliven Bundy, the freeloading rancher who didn't want to pay his grazing fees -- to George Zimmerman and "Joe" the pretend plumber -- to the cheating, child molesting Josh Duggar -- Maher got around to dinging every single one of them.

Maher wondered what sort of judgment those on the right have, who believe they know so much more than the rest of us, when this laundry list of really awful characters is who they decide they should emulate.

I think most of us know the answer to that question already.

Can you help us out?
