Orac gives Bill Maher The Treatment. Very entertaining.
I gave up on Maher years ago. I tried really hard to give him the benefit of the doubt, but it wasn’t just the quackery: it was the tepid reluctance to embrace the term “atheist”. It was the frequent flattery-filled appearances of Arianna Huffington, the Rupert Murdoch of the left. It was that Religulous was such a dishonest, devious movie. It’s that every time I did catch an episode, there was S.E. Cupp. It was that his specialty seemed to be gathering a panel of disparate celebrities and pundits, and then setting them loose on each other on topics they were often relatively uninformed about.
He’s what you get if Bill O’Reilly tried to be Jon Stewart. And failed.
