“I’m more of a “hire someone else to work the fields” guy.”
“Field work? I’d wreck these nails and hair.”
“Maybe if they were fields of marijuana.”
“I would never play Nebraska, let alone work in your fields.”
“Do I look like a fieldworker?”
“I’m too pretty for field work.”
“Work in the fields? What, are you high? Wait, no—you’re a Nebraskan Republican.”
“No, I’m a comedian—I don’t do “field work.””
“Work in the fields? I don’t think even half of actual Nebraskans works in the fields.”

Bill Maher could have said any of my non-comedian quick whip comebacks last Friday night, but instead he caused the liberal world to up and start eating itself and created a cover for Kathy Griffin by using the N-Word in reference to the cultural motif of “House N— vs. Field N—.”
Meanwhile, not a racist politician or voter learned a damn thing—our racist President and his racist staff and voters still call for banning Muslims and Mexicans, and pine on about “reverse racism” and more silly phrases that are only used by a certain population who vote a certain way (hint: they were the ones happily burning Obama in effigy, proudly, for years or calling him out as the Antichrist and/or a Muslim outsider not even born in America or churched properly).
And they claim that liberals are the real racists. Go figure.
Instead, the mainstream media spent the week wringing hands and demonizing four seconds of t.v. and a host who had a “dumb moment” that should have never happened.
Poor Nebraska Senator Benjamin E. Sasse—I wonder how his week was?
But last night, Michael Eric Dyson and Maher had longer-than-usual first guest talk, with Maher looking anemic, but saying all the right things about why he never should use the word—and that he knows he doesn’t get to use that word.
