Bill Maher Compares George W. Bush to Ariel Castro

On Friday's edition of Bill Maher's HBO show "Real Time," the comedian and political talk show host likened George W. Bush to Ariel Castro.

Bush held a 100-K bike event for Iraqi veterans who had lost limbs in combat. Mauer called it "nauseating."

“First he sends them off to war to get their limbs blown off and then he has them over for a barbeque,” Maher said. “This is like the Cleveland guy having a pizza party for those girls he had in his basement.”

That's about the only Cleveland reference in an otherwise insignificant conversation about the post-presidential image of Gdubs, but it exemplifies just how pervasively Castro and "that basement in Cleveland" have become cultural catchphrases or signposts for sadism and misbehavior.
