Bill Maher's Twitter jihad against Tim Tebow continues
Three games ago, Tim Tebow's streak of late-game miracles looked bound for legend. Now, even true believers are left to wonder if his success was a mirage.
No wonder comedian Bill Maher has been kicking the Chosen One when he's down -- on one knee, and on the scoreboard.
Tebow, of course, is the perfect Maher target. The man behind the 2008 documentary Religulous treats faith in general, and Christianity in particular, like a cultural delusion. Still, he still managed to create a stir by tweeting the following after the Broncos' humiliating December 24 defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bills.
If anyone expected the uproar that ensued to turn Maher repentant has never seen his shtick. A few days later, he tossed the gauntlet for another completion to the anti-Tebow crowd.

Not that Maher was done tweeting about Tebow or his fans, whose adulation he compared to that of North Koreans for a certain dead zealot in a followup missive.
Next up: Maher dragged Tebow into the tragic end of the Russell Brand-Katy Perry marriage.
And then, a Tebow tweet with a visual bonus.
