Bill Maher is a relatively famous television personality. Of course, he got this position by correctly realizing that he wasn’t a very good standup comedian and his real talent was getting famous people on TV and then making fun of them or using them as foils to make a political point. He has bounced around a couple of different venues and has currently landed at HBO. His show is called “Real Time with Bill Maher”. He has used this notoriety and fame to also publish some of his remarks and is a frequent contributor to Huffington Post. His latest article is the subject of this post.
Originally, I only wanted to reply to Bill Maher in his comments section. However, Huffington Post limits comments to a small number of words so I am forced to make further comments here. You can read my original thoughts at this link as there are currently over 2500 comments on this article and it would be difficult to find mine. You may also want to read Bill’s original article before you read my comments.
