Bill Maher Sorry Cheney Didn't Die in Afghan Assassination Attempt

So Ann Coulter referred to John Edwards as a "faggot" in an inappropriate joke; an apology would certainly be in order. In fact, the Dems are demanding it loudly, not only from Coulter but from the entire Republican establishment, that's a stretch. Then came Bill Maher's show on HBO on the same day where the topic of the assassination attempt on Vice President Cheney in Afghanistan was raised.

Bill Mahrr: "I have no doubt that if Dick Cheney was not in power, people wouldn't be dying needlessly tomorrow." (The audience applauds this line). He then went on to say: "I'm just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live, That's a fact."

So what's more serious, Bill Maher seriously expressing disappointment that the Vice President wasn't killed in an assassination attempt, or Ann Coulter in a tasteless joke referring to John Edwards as a "Faggot"? You make the call.

Note: Got a message from a reader who points out that Maher didn't actually say that he was "sorry" that Cheney didn't die. Really? OK, I'll stick with the headline as is, I simply don't see any other way to read Maher's words.
