    Pretty pathetic to whine bitch and moan for a half hour today about Bill.

    "He invited me on his show, but I dont want to do political talk Robin."

    He annoyed me so much with this "bit".

    First he was saying he's no political guy he's just a comedian. Then he defends himself by saying he is right. So what is it wiggy?? Are you trying to be funny or be a political commentator??
    Secondly, he talks all this shit then turns down an opportunity to put him in his place on his show and he turns it down. Who's the coward now you pelican faced lesbian Jew cunt??

    Howard is a political moron, he would not bode well on a show like Maher's.

    Pretty funny when he had the clip of Maher's show all cued up when the supposedly spontaneous phone call came in. Bill would DESTROY Wiggy in any discussion, political or not. Howard's not quick-witted enough to argue with anyone live, that's why he never does.

    This is the typical defense from comedians who engage in political and social commentary. They want to be taken seriously as political and social commentators UNTIL they receive criticism for their political and social commentary.

    They pull out the canard "I'm just a funny guy; I'm not running for office" right away. Jon Stewart did this in the most disgusting fashion a decade ago stating, "I do a show right after puppets prank call people."

    It's a false argument. Stewart does a show where MANY people get their news. Stewart does a show that influences people opinions to a high degree. Remember when Cheney shot that old guy in Texas? It was the Democratic "line" for weeks, lifted straight from The Daily Show, that Cheney "shot an old man. In the chest. On purpose."

    Something like that.

    Pelican spent a good month before the '08 election talking about Palin's idiocy. Stern fans I know parroted Pelican's words to a t.

    But he's not a political guy.

    but you have to already be politically knowledgeable in order to get stewarts jokes. i dont see how its funny if u dont know what hes talking about. same idea with miller.



    as to maher, a lot of what he says makes sense, but i cant watch him because hes so annoyingly condescending.
    also, even if i agree with him that doesnt make him funny

    Maher and Howard's dynamic is what it is because they are in some ways very alike.

    1. Comedians are who pontificate about politics with a superficial understanding of the issues involved.
    2. Both claim "it's a joke" when a comment doesn't go down well.
    3. Both bitterly vent their anger on-air in front of fawning audience or no audience so that they can't be challenged effectively.
    4. Both are condescending to audience.
    5. Both have huge egos masking insecurity about serious physical flaws.
    6. Both talk out of their ass, get called on it, and can't just say "that was stupid of me".

    I get the impression Maher was wounded because he thought Howard would automatically defend him.
    I get the impression Howard was wounded because he thought Leno was his buddy, and he put a business move before deference to that.

    Both have a philosophy of not forgiving slights and insults, ever.
    Both have an immature view of what women are and what a relationship is.

    Abortion......Gay Marriage......The 'Wars'..............Palin............Climate Change............Mitt Romney/Bain Capital.........


    So many things commented on without jokes.

    Ah Stern,You cant be serious sometimes and then non serious/comedian at other times.The boy who cried 'Wolf' learned that lesson the hard way.

    Maher is frustrating because I actually agree with a lot of what he says but I dislike him personally.

    Either way, I have no doubt as to his political chops. He's a political guy.
