Breitbart to Maher: You’re not a libertarian

This is a fun video. Bill Maher, who is such a fraud, gets called out by Andrew Breitbart for being a socialist rather than a libertarian.

And here's where it got good. Readers are strongly advised to watch the video to see Maher's expression when Breitbart nails him:  
ANDREW BREITBART: So you're, you're officially not a Libertarian anymore, right? I mean, this position...
MAHER: Well..
BREITBART: ...has run so far from the Libertarian position. Is this, so you admit that you have more of a, you know, European socialist leaning perspective on this issue?
BREITBART: Why is that funny?
The look on Maher's face at this moment said it all: 

MAHER: I'm, I'm not afraid, it's not, I'm not afraid to say European socialism works.
European socialism works? This is exactly why I say Bill Maher is a fraud.  Europe is now in the grips of austerity measures because socialism worked so well there. 

Maher has made a rather lucrative career by employing snark as a mask for intellect.  However when Maher comes up against anyone with real smarts he is exposed as the intellectual lightweight he really is.  Remember this embarrassing moment for Maher?

The only reason why Bill Maher ever called himself a libertarian is because it made him look bright and above the fray of typical left and right politics, NOT because he has a real understanding or belief in the libertarian position.

I would not consider Bill Maher to be funny. In fact, I don't recall ever seeing or hearing about him before his "Politically Incorrect" T.V. show. I just wonder if he was wearing knee pads when he got his show? ;)

It don't make any differance to me if Bill Maher is a socialist(I call a Paleo-progressive) or a libertarian (I call a neo-progresive), because both factions have alot of crazy, Godless views.
