Bill Maher To Chris Coons: You’re Not The Only One Who’s Been Exasperated From Debating Christine O’Donnell


On HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher this week, Maher admitted that he didn’t have any more forthcoming footage of Christine O’Donnell that was going to be “earth shaking,” but did have some footage he wanted to share with her Democratic rival for the Delaware Senate after watching their debate this week. During that debate, Coons was clearly exasperated when attempting to respond to her barrage of lies that where thrown at him and often times wasn’t sure just where to start with a response. As Bill noted, she has exasperated a lot of people and not just Chris Coons.

The montage is from a number of her appearances on his show Politically Incorrect, and Maher’s right: it might have served Coons well to have watched this before he had to debate her to get an idea of what he was in for.

I’ll just add that I felt equally as exasperated watching the guests and Maher debating teabagger Dana Loesch, who he allowed on the show and who had to be countered just like O’Donnell for lying in every other breath that came out of her mouth.
