Do people enjoy Bill Maher? He seems very hit or miss. Like, sometimes you want to hit him when he misses. On his HBO show, Bill Maher did a bit about what he thinks a real black president should do.

I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That's — (in black man voice) 'we've got a motherfu**ing problem here?' Shoot somebody in the foot.

Haw haw, all black people have guns. Huh? The most offensive thing about this is that we can think of at least a half-dozen black stereotypes that would be much funnier as premises for this hacky joke. [Real Clear Politics]
