Since the media doesn't cover conservative philosophy in-depth, we sometimes have to settle for symbols and sound bites.

If Maher wrote his LA Times column in 1993, he might have listed "deducting used underwear on taxes, dismissing travel office staff, the first lady's unlikely good luck in cattle futures investing, and various bimbo eruptions." In 1994 the Republicans won both houses of Congress.

The things Maher lists are a short-hand for deep, important problems. He did leave out mortgaging our children's future for green government buildings. But substitute spending $800,000 to avoid showing his birth certificate while claiming transparency, inability to not make a gaffe when NOT using the teleprompter, hiring a staff that does not instruct him on protocol, and we have hints of what else might be happening that we don't see.

Is this article trying to say that Maher is a middle of the road, equal opportunity satirist? What a joke, if there was any honesty in reporting anymore, it would show just how much of a leftard Maher is and that he's a liberal comedian. His attacks on the right are hateful and ignorant, but his attacks on the left are light hearted and in jest. What a joke.

He is an over-rated, smug, terminal assh*le who equates oputrageousness with talent. Sad commentary for what passes for "entertainment" in our infantile, snikkering-like-4th graders society.
