Comedian Bill Maher said Tuesday night on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show that the “Occupy Wall Street” movement could be “the wind at the back” of Barack Obama and other Democrats, who tend to lapse into “centrism.”

“And this could be it,” he said. “So what that there message is a little vague? I kind of like it that they’re sort of militantly vague at this point, because they are in a lot of ways the opposite of the tea party movement.”

“Although that is sort of weird also, because the tea party movement, lets remember, started out protesting some of the same things. Remember the bailouts and the banks, they didn’t like the big banks. It just shows how easily the people in the tea party can be herded to something else.”
