I'm watching his show on HBO, and it's the same train-wreck formula as Politically Incorrect: two opposing intellectuals who argue for a while, a comedian who throws in an off-the-cuff comment that sounds like he's been working on for weeks, and to top it all off, Maher sitting on his hill of smugness, watching over it all. The show sucks. And his standup sucks, too. I tried to watch his standup special and he has a bit where... wait for it..... he reads rap songs that he's edited to sound smarter! "That female has a fortuitous posterior!" Comedy gold! The guy must be AMAZING at schmoozing behind the scenes, cause he doesn't have the talent or the on-screen personality to deserve to still have a show. Everyone I know, liberal and conservative, dislikes him. I don't get it.
