What makes Bill Maher unique

March 27, 2009 | By | 2 Replies More

Unfortunately, Bill Maher is unique. In a world dominated by cheerleaders (pro-Obama and pro-Republican cheerleaders), we have a thinker who asks real questions. That’s Michael LeBron’s viewpoint too:

But what separates Maher from the Obama-crazed parvenus is that he thinks about an issue and then decides. He doesn’t ask: “What’s Obama’s position? Me, too.” Doesn’t anyone with a synapse have any questions inter alia as to the stimulus package(s), bank nationalization or whether ex post facto legislation clawing back A.I.G. bonuses is in effect a bill of attainder?

    I often find that comedians and satirists put more effort into analysis of their topics than almost anyone. I wouldn't take any of them at their word (any more than I'd take anyone's word without question) but their opinions aren't usually paid for by corporate or political interests. I did see how Maher's style changed when he went from cable to network TV, and I think there's a little fallout still from that, and his acceptance of the antivaccination mythology makes me more reticent to agree right out with him now. Still, he's a smart guy who's willing to put obfuscators on the spot – I'd believe him over anyone from Fox in a heartbeat.

    I'm curious to know who the "“What’s Obama’s position? Me, too.” crowd are. Certainly everyone I follow has their own take on the various issues.
