I hope Ann kicks his butt. Maher is a weasel. He blasts Rush and then last night I hear him saying that all republicans should be killed and hung by their sacks on wall street. He's an imbecile who makes no sense to me. He blasts Bush for spending 1.7 trillion on a war but says nothing about Obama spending this amount on socialism and pork within the last 45 days! What is going on in this country? Thank Gos there are people like Rush and Ann to stand up to these goofs like Maher who hates everything in this country. His dream has come true and democrats control everything, and he's stil whining.

Wow, I have read a few of your post in the past and I have to say dude this sounds nothing like you. I mean dude, chill. And if you had watched the debate you would have heard him commenting on some of Obama's choices for his cabinet. I mean really. Ann is nothing be a rude excuse for a human.

Rush and coulter are making big bucks yanking your wanky.

"Stand up"?? Rush, coulter (and maher, for that matter) are in business for one thing and one thing only: self-promotion.

Put rush, coulter and maher in a room together and you have more whores than the midday shift at the bunny ranch.

agreed. but here's hoping HBO will air some of these matchups. Tv has become, was it Newton Minnow who called it the "great wasteland". in my made up fantasyland matchups, i would have liked to seen Rahm Emanuel vs Bob Dole(in his prime).

Yes--let's make them real matchups--not some phony WWE-type nonsense w/maher and coulter.

Unfortunately, the really bright people don't have name recognition so no one would watch.

And after 1 or 2 shows, you wouldn't have any honest, intelligent conservatives left, so where would you be?(just kidding)

Azdak, i know you are going to laugh, but i saw Newt Gingrich on "Meet the Press", last sunday. he was the sanest repub, i had heard in a long time. now i'm not saying i would ever vote for him. maybe it was simply that newtie knows how to dial down the rhetoric, especially on such a venue.

Don't these dumb ass "politicos" understand that the regulatory committee allowed all the "pork" onto the bill and passed it and Obama being the servant of the people signed it like all of America was asking him to do. At what point does that make him accountable for the B S state campaigning amendments that both sides of the aisle added. Furthermore, his investment was at least in our country, rather than letting private businesses run Iraq while policing their safety for free w/ our military, and then paying billions to blackwater for carrying out what most can only consider war crimes for "our government"..... how long will it take for everyone to blame Obama for that? It's truly amazing that people who believe in an omniscient being actually think that accountability can just be passed around w/out anyone being able to spot their Sh!t.

Newt is not dumb, but he is a chameleon (unintended pun). My impression is that he has a desperate need for affection and acceptance that makes him say whatever he thinks will get him a "good boy" pat on the head from the Washington establishment. I just don't trust that anything he says is genuine. In that case, right or wrong, my natural instinct is just to ignore him.

That being said, he could still very well BE the "sanest" republican out there--it's a pretty low bar right now (had to throw that in) ;-)

I know, I need to calm down. But I was real upset after seeing this Maher show on HBO where he said he wished he could kill republicans and hang them on wall street, if a republican or right wing media outlet did this it would be world war III....Why is O.K for him to talk like this but Ann is rude?

You mean people who have a brain like me and are not sheep like you? Your an azzzhol...because a republican lost an election somehow this country is changing into a socialist far left country? What planet are you on? Go look at some polls and figures some time, this country is the majority center right. Bush messed up and the GOP lost the election, who cares....Oh your going to clean something up? Don't you mean you're going to hold out your hand and take your handout? Go get another "Obama we love you" bumper sticker dork.

I guess, I just don't agree with the unfair coverage of these people. The far left are going overboard with the atttacks and it is really showing. Rush is all over the news for nothing while this liberal makes a much worse statement and we hear nothing....

I think comedy goes out the window when you are party aligned, how can you claim to be a comedian only for liberals? The right hates him and the left think he's funny. I think he's just mean. Ann is mean and angry at the left, same as Maher, but the right loves her.

Actually you obviously didn't listen too well to the Maher episode Dan. He specifically referred to Madoff and the Merrill Lynch CEO, Dick F. He didn't say anything about republicans when he talked about that. He said that we should hang those two from the big board on wall street with their balls in their mouth to set an example. Obviously a joke...somewhat. So just to reiterate, your statement is incorrect as he never mentioned doing that to republicans in general...just those two clowns.
