I'm a fan of Bill Maher and I must confess that I actually find him strangely attractive although he is not a conventionally handsome guy. I think he's just got character.

I am a faithful watcher of Real Time. What I like about Bill Maher, besides the fact that he's hilarious, is that he is truly an independent thinker. He's ridiculously smart, I don't always agree with him (most of the time I do), but he's passionate and knows what he's talking about. The post-New Orleans show was really great.

Me, too. He's weirdly sexy.

I do think Bill Maher is pretty GREAT too ...
Really, he's much better than "you know who" from The Daily Show ...

#3 here. He's no jon stewart, but he does have a certain appeal. Humor and intelligence are sexy.

. That's exactly right, he doesn't lean to one side or the other-both sides are at risk for criticism.

Also, yeah, I don't have a thing for the guy, per se, but...I see where some of you are coming from in that respect, too ...

I just read some of the most recent episode transcripts online… and I thought they were hilarious …. But the times I have actually caught his show on tv I never laughed out loud as much as when I read the transcripts… maybe his growing anger has made his material a lot better … or I just find him funnier in print… I specially liked reading his monologue on ep. 315 (as well as the entire eps. of 315/316) http://www.safesearching.com/billmah...nscripts.shtml

9/16/05 NEW RULES:

MAHER: All right, I've got to go to New Rules. Ready, New Rules, everybody! It's time for this week's New Rules.



New Rule: Michael Brown must un-resign so he can be publicly fired. We are not letting you off that easy, Brownie. You can't just slink off midway through your service. This is FEMA, not the Texas Air National Guard.


New Rule: The fortunes in fortune cookies have to be fortunes. “You surround yourself with good friends” is not a prediction. It's a compliment. Quit kissing my ass, cookie! If I'm going to sit through a plate of MSG-laden, twice-cooked kitty-cat——I want a real fortune like, “That meal you just ate is going to give you cancer.”

New Rule: There aren't “101 Sex Tricks.” In fact, ladies, there is only one. It's called the blowjob. Do it 101 times.

New Rule: A terrorist threat should not end with the words, “Seriously, dude.” A terrorist video has surfaced wherein an Al Qaeda operative from Orange County —threatened the U.S. Hey, face it, man, you're not a jihadist. You're Napoleon Dynamite with this mother's dishtowel on his head. Turn off the camcorder, go back to your parents' basement and download porn, you loser.

New Rule: Stop telling me celebrities are too thin, when really the rest of America is too fat. I think I know where Nicole Richie's boobs went. [photo of obese man in swimsuit] This guy's got ‘em.

And finally, New Rule: For Christ's sake, no more devil movies. “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” opened huge last week, and it surprised a lot of people, mostly because Owen Wilson wasn't in it. But exorcism, or as the Catholics call it, “elective surgery,”—is a popular theme nowadays because it reinforces the comforting notion that evil resides outside of us.


Well, I'm sorry, but it doesn't. And whenever I hear someone blame a bombing in Baghdad or a levee breaking in New Orleans on the forces of evil, it makes me so mad I just want to grab my pitchfork and stick it right through my cloven hoof!


Now, Americans have always loved devil movies: “The Exorcist,” “The Omen,” “Rosemary's Baby,” “The Devil's Advocate.” The list goes on forever because Americans love the devil. Why? Because he's simple and he provides a simple answer. He did it.


But evil is not a demon with a tail and horns. That's a Jew. And evil – evil isn't some spectral goblin with red eyes and the voice of Anthony Hopkins. That's Anthony Hopkins.

Is George Bush purely evil? Of course not. And that's what's so evil about him. He doesn't twirl a mustache and smirk and cackle. Well, he doesn't twirl a mustache. He's like the Peanuts character Pigpen. Wherever he goes, he stirs up such a humongous mess it can only be cleaned up by Halliburton. But he is not pure evil.

Because evil is a chain. Did any one person doom New Orleans ? No, it's a chain. People vote for a corrupt leader; a corrupt leader puts unqualified cronies in high places, and when those cronies fuck up, evil gets done. The devil didn't fly up from hell and knock a hole in that levee. The levee just didn't get built because the money for it went to rich people's tax cuts and pork projects and corporate welfare.

Evil isn't “Salem's Lot.” It's Trent Lott. This week, an ailing American bald eagle was found to be dying from mercury poisoning. Republicans immediately tried to blame it on the eagle's lifestyle choices. But it's worth noting that also this week, the White House threatened to veto limits on mercury pollution. Now, pure evil would be if George Bush sat around the White House saying, “Let's poison eagles!” And even I don't believe George Bush would do that.

Cheney would do that. And even he is not pure evil. Dick Cheney doesn't hate poor children and caribou. They're just in the way.

Bottom line: some people think Satan is real and some people think global warming is real. If you think stopping gays from doing it is more important than the ice caps melting, the boogeyman is you…

The whole devil speech bit was really interesting, but I really liked this part in particular:

Bill Maher

I don't get his show in Canada as we don't have HBO but for some reason many HBO show are broadcast here like the Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

I miss Politically Incorrect. I like Bill Maher because most of his observations are basic common sense. He reads through the bullshit to say it like it is. Very refreshing but scary to people who don't want the truth.

Wow, that's weird. Hopefully one day you'll get his show in your area . It's quite good.
