Is There Anything More Tedious and Tendentious...

Than Bill Maher's show on HBO?

DOWNDATE: It hilarious, Bill Maher asks Mario Cuomo if the president shouldn't be careful what he says since he's the president of all of us? Ha ha. So the Left accepts that George W. Bush is, in fact, the president of all of us?

DOUBLE DOWNDATE: Jeez, who picks Bill Maher's clothes? Then again, anyone who takes Arianna Huffington ("Blogger") seriously... but what is Ian McShane doing with this bunch of losers who call the Pope "full of shit" for believing in ..., wait for it ..., Roman Catholicism? The sins of Cardinal Law don't rub off on the Pope. And now Arianna says that the proliferation of AIDS is the Pope's fault for opposing condom distributions, Catholics are all necrophiliacs, and George Bush hasn't been to military funerals -- and people in the audience are clapping (!). Man, what an amazing collection of assholes. This show really is unwatchable for anyone with any respect for people who actually have a shred of belief, much less people who actually have a fervent belief in Christianity.

TRIPLE DOWNDATE: And now Bill Maher shows a statement by John Cornyn with no fewer than six ellipsis to "prove" that Republicans want to kill judges who don't agree with them. Enough of this. Time to change the channel.

QUADRUPLE DOWNDATE: Sorry, didn't get to the remote fast enough. And now Bill Maher shows that he doesn't understand what the seperation of church and state means as he argues that having judges not accountable to the public is what the seperation of church and state means. Clearly we live in a time of great prosperity and security since we can tolerate such public, popular imbecility.

Bill Maher is an intolerant prick. Or to use your technical term, he's an asshole.

The Republicans are all at work when these things are being recorded.

Incidentally, have you ever seen Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death? It breaks my heart that Bill Maher was once funny.

Uh, no, but I have heard of it.

I enjoyed BIll Maher on Politically Correct up until about 1999 or so, or until Bush Derangement Syndrome set in.

Amazin' thing is that so many people are amazed that the Pope, Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, would actually support Catholic doctrine.

I guess these people only get the old sarcastic question "Is the Pope Catholic?" half the time.
