He comes up with this stuff because its how HE really feels. Deep down He feels bad about it so he assigns these feeling to everyone to alleviate his guilt. If he makes the point that everyone hates the troops then it's not so bad that HE hates the troops.
The disrespect for our troops is palpable in this clip. The way he assumes they are too stupid to know that deployment is a possibility. Like they are little children who need to be saved from the evil military that they chose to join.
I wish I could see Bill Maher tell a Marine they are a victim of the Bush Admin and that they've been exploited. Then I'd laugh while Bill attempted to remove the boot from his a$$.
Speak For Yourself A$$HOLE!
