Maher: ‘Big Business Is the New Big Government,’ So Why Does GOP Love It?

Bill Maher ended his show Friday night with a monologue railing against big business and America’s crappy customer service industry. Maher’s driving point for the bit was that infamously ridiculous Comcast customer service call, observing, “I don’t think your customer service experience is supposed to feel like a car ride with a four-year-old.”

Maher then went on a tear against how customer service has turned into an “annoying you out of your money” business, as well as corporate culture itself. Maher even got in a joke about Rupert Murdoch potentially putting him out of a job at HBO and replacing him with “Paste-Eating Time with Steve Doocy.”

Maher concluded that “big business is the new big government” now, but conservatives continue to have a very idealized view of the free market. Maher had to ask why. He said it’s nice in theory, but in reality, you buy cable from the only cable company in the area and then Rumplestiltskin comes to your house and sodomizes you.
