    can't wait when he is on again.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    I tried just the word no, but 4 letters in the minimum. :D

    Seriously, I think his views are many times right on the mark, but the totally cynical delivery is elitest and smug.

    I second the new rules part, its usually great.

    As far as his views, sometimes i agree, sometimes i dont... about 70/30

    I like his bluntness and sense of humor but he can be kinda smug sometimes. I like Dennis Miller a lot better.

    I think Adam Carolla is also underrated, not a lot of political commentary... But great common sense rants that I usually agree with 95%+ percent of the time. Im a huge fan of his.

    Other than his monologues, I've enjoyed Maher since the original "Politically Incorrect" on Comedy Central. The guy has no delivery. His stand up routine is just painful.

    While this HBO rendition is good, I still like the original best, especially during the political conventions. The "Strange Bedfellows" segment with Al Frankin and Ariana Huffington in bed together in the middle of the audience, just killed me... especially the one where Barney Frank showed up between them.

    I can't stand him. I'd watch a monkey scratchin' his ass on Animal Planet before I'd watch 2 seconds of him.

    I dont hate him and dont think he's an anti-American scumbag like michael moore or the aclu, I just think he's wrong and not very funny.

    He's hilarious...really like his stand up too. I think his latest stand up routine is called "I'm Swiss", which is really funny...saw it on HBO a few weeks ago.

    The only thing I find funny about him is his politics.

    What passes for politics in our fair land is so patently laughable, who needs a middleman? :p
