Bill Maher Says "America's Not Number One!"

A lot of triumphalists want to keep alive the idea that America is at the forefront of everything, the same rah-rah spirit that's inflated our egos and sometimes has us coming off downright piggish in our world views.

But comic observer Bill Maher disagrees.

"Really?" says Bill.

"Always waving the big foam number one finger.

"We're not number one in most things.

"We're number one in military. We're number one in money.

"We're number one in fat toddlers, meth labs, and people we send to prison.

"But we're not number one in literacy, in money spent on education.

"We're not even number one in social mobility.

"Social mobility means basically the American Dream, the ability of one generation to do better than the [one before it].

"We're tenth.

"That's like Sweden coming in tenth in Swedish meatballs!"

According to Larry King's book Truth Be Told, the above remarks were made in response to Mitt Romney's book, No Apology: The Case For American Greatness.

But Romney's book actually acknowledges that America's lost its tracking in certain areas and proposes ways to fix that so we can be strong again (including higher starting pay for teachers).

Yikes.

Could he and Bill Maher actually be on the same plane?

And more importantly, where is it landing?

America is Still Number One in Big Cocks, as Bill Maher knows all too well, since he has one. Have you ever seen him in "Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death"? His cock is bigger than co-star Adrienne Barbeau's tits -- put together!

I thought he must have a great big dick!  I can just tell.  I like that in a man.

I doubt we are #1, red state big dickheads maybe....but from my research not Big Cocks

I'd never, ever, heard if that film (and I can pretty much figure out why)...but  Hey, I'll give it a quick twirl.

"That's like Sweden coming in 10th in Swedish meatballs" may possibly be the best thing Bill Maher has ever said.
