-->'''Bill:''' We have this fantasy that our interests and the interests of the super rich are the same, like somehow the rich will eventually get so full that they'll explode, and the candy will rain down on the rest of us, like they're some sort of pinata of benevolence. But here's the thing about a pinata, it doesn't open on it's own, you have to beat it with a stick.

* October 3, 2014: A rare instance where the awesome moment goes to a guest, when Creator/BenAffleck [[WhatTheHellHero calls out Maher]] and fellow guest Sam Harris [[UnfortunateImplications for their sweeping generalization of all Muslims being inherently dangerous and evil]].

* November 14, 2014: Because the 2014 midterms had the lowest voter turnout since 1942, Bill takes down [[StupidNeutral the apathetic non-voters who sat the election out]], offering a mostly-humorous idea of what would have happened if the 2008 and 2012 elections had similar turnouts, meaning Obama would have lost to John [=McCain=] or Mitt Romney ([[CompositeCharacter whom Bill combines into candidate "Mitt McCain"]]).
-->'''Bill:''' But keep telling yourself that because politics is dirty, so very dirty, that you, precious, by not voting or informing yourself or participating in any way, are clean. Yeah, thatís it. Youíve kept yourself pure, because you havenít gotten your hands sullied by the gutter that is American politics. Well, you can keep telling yourself that. But, the truth is, if your hands arenít dirty, itís not because youíre pure. Itís because ''youíre not helping''.

* April 2011: In the New Rule titled "Charlie Don't Serf", Bill urges Americans to stand up to the corporations who have been abusing the American socioeconomic system. Bear in mind that this was less than 6 months before the first Occupy Wall Street rally.

-->'''Bill:''' You know, when Obama starts a pre-emptive war, and then fucks it up, and makes torture our official policy and outs a CIA agent, and purges U.S. Attorneys, and tries to put his cleaning lady on the Supreme Court--and doesn't act on global warming, and appoints as the head of FEMA an ex-dildo salesman who was his college roommate--you know, that kind of stuff, believe me, I'll be with you. But, until then, I don't want to see Republicans freaking out if Obama isn't singing the National Anthem loud enough, or they find out he gets his suits made in France. If he puts a moon roof in the presidential limo, [[GodwinsLaw he's not making himself Führer]]; he's just trying to get the smell of stupidity out of the seats."

* November 7, 2008: After UsefulNotes/BarackObama's win in the 2008 presidential election, Bill uses the New Rule "Harass Backwards" [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to chastise the Republicans following their defeat]], and what they should do for Obama's presidency.
