    I recall exactly two Huffington appearances, and one was during her "candidacy" for California governor. So that was pretty legit.

    Heck, he's had John Edwards on as often as Arianna.

    Good. I guess that was more in the PI days. Whew!

    I thought Maher was funny. Now, if I catch New Rules I'll watch. I wanted to catch Amaechi tonight, but my little one was running around, so no HBO language allowed. Otherwise forget it.

    What did Maher say about 9/11? I missed it.

    If I remember correctly, he simply took issue with the people who called the hijackers "cowards."

    Maher's contention was that while they were a lot of things, anyone who intentionally crashes a plane into a skyscraper is not a coward.

    Of course he was right. They were evil, delusional, warped, brainwashed . . . pick your own adjective . . . but they weren't cowards.

    But the country was in no mood to hear anything from a terrorist apologist like Maher. Not when we had a boot to stick in countries' asses. So he was canned.

    Damn, you guys are harsh. I think Bill Maher is funny. How can you call a guy who wore a Steve Irwin costume for Halloween unfunny.

    I give Maher credit for calling bullshit on the whole war on drugs movement/strategy. Fuck Bill Bennett

    Thanks. I don't remember that, but it sure sounds like Maher.

    He's a prick who loves to push people's buttons. Sometimes he's a funny prick, but he's always a prick.

    That's right.

    Oh, and Maher is very funny.

    He also added something like: They're cowards? We're the ones lobbing cruise missles from thousands of miles away from our targets...

    You say what you want about Bill Maher, but he pulls more tail than JDV.

    HERE'S what funny.

    What's funny is that some of you who are bashing Maher are the same ones who sing Colbert's praises. And they're the same guy.
