Bill Maher used the Aurora, Colo. shooting to hit at "American exceptionalism" and "[right] wingers" on Friday, tweeting that alleged gunman James Holmes' actions are "a reminder that so many of the things that make us exceptional these days are bad."

NewsBusters' Noel Sheppard ripped Maher for his tweet, wondering "how stoned" he was when he wrote it.

[A] clearly disturbed young man massacred innocents for no reason, and Maher sees this as an opportunity to bash conservatives and the concept of American exceptionalism.

What should make people sadder than the comment itself is that there are so many folks around this great nation who agree with him, and that maybe such anti-American sentiments are part of the problem.
