Bill Maher


Why do I watch this program? I have decided that I simply watch it to get angry. The opinions he spouts are just that, opinions... But man... come on..

George Bush is the devil revisited and all the woes suffered by this nation were created by him and the cattle industry. Maher is bad enough, but couple him with Janeane Garofalo and you have the makings for an evening of blithering bullshit that could only be seconded by a three hour meal with Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan.

I just bit the bullet and watched these two asshats pontificate on his latest HBO showing. Garofalo, as usual, blamed every criticism of obama on racism, and Maher almost came to tears while soap-boxing about the stupidity of those that don't buy into man made global warming. They have no original opinion between the two of them and waste time that could have been given to a guest that could've created an interesting dialogue. Why did HBO get rid of Dennis Miller and put this clown on? He is the spokesperson for walking in lockstep with the mindless masses of drooling simpletons that get their information from Jon Stewart.

It seems that fad and fashion is what should rule the day when you are interested in current events and political points of view. The people you have to deal with are mindless, either parroting Limbaugh or Maher.. what the hell is the problem? what happened to people actually reading a damn bill in congress to find out what it really says, or just simply digging into an issue to get to what is really going on? Maher is constantly speaking of the stupidity of the American people and praising the intellect and maturity of Europeans, while showing that he has no more understanding of what he is speaking about than does George Galloway...

This is what happens when a true investigative media gets replaced with the infotainment we are having to deal with. Made only worse by the neo-intellects that begin to spew about how much better BBC is at reporting the news...

The only person that can speak on Maher's show in an intelligent manner, and knows how to deal with Bill's automated audience, appears to be Mr. Hitchens...

I stopped at'why'.

I didn't read the rant that you wrote; I did what any self respecting rebel would do and went straight to the always brilliant Christopher Hitchens.

Christopher Hitchens makes me act like a swoony little schoolgirl.

I find Hitchens to be pretty damn smart but a major league asshole as well. That, in my opinion is a great combination!!

I find Maher to be funny, but as you inferred, as far left as Limbaugh is right. Limbaugh and Maher are good examples of people who have Disciple Complex. They espouse what they consider to be Gospel and mindless folks follow.

As for Garafalo...I think she's kind of sexy in a grungy, Bohemian kinda way, but man...

She doesn't let any facts get in the way of the crap that spews from her mouth.

Cheers Clay!!

Political talk shows aren't even on my radar, save Neal Boortz. But he's Libertarian as I am.
One-sided people, the ones that think their party is the only party and everything the other party does is wrong, I have no time for. Like the "everything is Bush's fault" crowd and the "you're racist if you don't like Obama" crowd.
I don't like things either party does.

I get a little frustrated when people get set into a habitual belief- it just get boring and one becomes ignorant of what really goes on. Well done Clay- looks like you and Hitchens are doing your part to wake up the masses.
