GOPAC Prez Tells Bill Maher 'Right-Wing' Is 'Name-Calling:' VIDEO

Right-wingers can be very thin-skinned. I'm sorry, homo sapiens with political beliefs on what is known as the conservative side of the spectrum can be very thin-skinned. Just look at David Avella, president of the Republican political action committee and a guest on Bill Maher's weekly talk show last night.

Though Avella admits President Obama's inaugural address had some ideas that the GOP can get behind, he accused the commander-in-chief of hypocritical name-calling.

"There are many things Republicans, thematically, can get behind," Avella said, before explaining that the president also demanded lawmakers not to treat "name-called as reasoned debate."

Avella went on, "This is a week [after] he sit [sic] and name-called and was critical of Republicans in his last press conference." Asked what name the Republicans were allegedly called, Avella replied, "right-wing Republican." Maher broke the news, "I got so many worse than that."

Pressed for an alternate term, Avella said he would have preferred the president said, "conservative" or "my friends on the other side of the aisle."

Meanwhile, former DNC head Howard Dean told Maher he thought President Obama's inauguration speech hit all the right (read: correct) notes.

"I thought the speech was something Americans out to embrace, which was equal rights for all Americans," he said. After the applause faded, he added, "And it's about time the President of the United States stood up to all this crazy crap on the right wing."

  1. Is David Avella an employee of the DNC or is he really that poor a spokesman for the "right wing" point of view?

  2. "EVERYONE" KNOWS THE WORLD WAS POPULATED BY ADAM FORNICATING WITH EVE, A WOMAN SPONTANEOUSLY GENERATED OUT OF HIS ON RIB, WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE A CROSS BETWEEN INCEST AND MASTURBATION.

    AND THAT MAKES A WHOLE LOT MORE SENSE THAN CLOSET-GAYS ADOPTING ALL OVER THE PLACE.

    REPUBLICANS RULE! RAINBOWS DROOL!

  5. @DannyEastVillage: I once heard a talk by a university president whose introductory comments were about a previous panel discussion he was in. Some left-wing guy had been ranting about the "#*#*$# liberals" (who were not left wing enough). Then some right wing guy, not be out done, ranted about the "#*&*$#& liberals" (who were not right wing enough). Then he told us that he started his talk by saying, "I guess I'm the liberal."

  7. Man up, Mr Avella, and pray that in the next two years that "right-wing" is the worst thing you and your band of reprobates called the Republican Party are called. Here's hoping that Republicans are eradicated in the 2014 elections.
