On this day:

The "stupid states" of Bill Maher

What a classy guy.

Comedian Bill Maher, in his recently published book, New Rules, writes:

"The next reality show must be called America's Stupidest State. We'll start at 50, and each week, if your state does something really stupid with, say, evolution or images of the Virgin Mary, you'll move on to the next round. Of course, the final five will always end up being Alabama, Utah, Kansas, Texas and Florida. Sorry, Tennessee."

It's no wonder that Bill Maher likes "new rules." They have played an important role in his career, since under the "old rules," people called "comedians" were actually expected to practice "comedy."
