Daily Caller Editor Drops Some Truth On Bill Maher’s Audience…Audience APPLAUDS

Is there hope for liberal television after all? Probably not, but for a brief shining moment one conservative rocked the epicenter of the lefty airwaves with such righteous force that HBO viewers are still trying to figure out if they should be terrified, impressed, or some combination thereof.

Daily Caller senior editor Jamie Weinstein appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” last night with former Democratic Rep. Jane Harmon and predicter-of-things Nate Silver. Maher actually agreed with Weinstein that Hamas deserves the blame for the conflict in Gaza (a bit of a different tune than Maher’s 2001 knee-slapper that terrorists are “not cowardly”), and then something happened that only Nate Silver would be able to tell us the likelihood of.

“What did Hamas use the money they had for? They built underground tunnels to attack Israel with and hide their weapons, not protect their people,” Weinstein pointed out, prompting a Real Time audience applause break. Bill Maher’s audience actually applauded a conservative for laying out the facts! We’d have to check the Maher archives (and who has the time or stomach for that?), but that’s pretty darn rare on a show where conservative guests are usually booed back to the hotel room mini-bar to read their viewer hate mail.

The clip, courtesy of Mediate’s Andrew Kirell, is presented below. Not to oversell it, but it’s kind of like Bob Dylan plugging in at Newport meets the Stones at Altamont if Bruce Springsteen circa 1978 had also been there with a hologram Keith Moon playing drums.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
