The guy's a fraud, and the only reason he keeps getting away with his schtick is that no one effectively calls him on it. Maher had an opportunity to do so and squandered it. Putz.





Edit to Add: My apologies to Aliza and any of our other Jewish members for my unlicensed use of Yiddish... but frankly, when you have to express the degree of contempt that Milo and Maher have coming to them, really only Yiddish expressions will suffice! Laugh out load

Does anyone else have a love/hate thing with Bill Maher? Sometimes I like him, and other times I think he's just a smug asshole that is wrong as often as he's right.

Maybe I'm just moody?

I'm the same. I want to like him but sometimes I just can't.

I've only seen him in religulous. Some of the stuff in there was dodgy as well IIRC. If the guy's gonna be an atheist cheerleader then for fucks sake be factual.

I've never cared for him and his schtick even though I agree with much of what he says. I just think that 1) you're right, he's a smug asshole, and 2) he drops the ball often enough to demonstrate that much of his high esteem is in his own head.

Don't forget he's an anti-vax nut. Fuck him, I say.

What really sucks is that I liked Religulous when I saw it. There are parts of it that are really good, but then I started seeing some interesting critiques of it and began to realize that some parts of it were just bullshit. Which was quite frustrating.

His views on vaccines are unfortunate, but his views on what it means to be called out on it are probably worse.

He's smug. Can't say I like him very much. Although he makes me laugh at times, sometimes agree with him, I can't shake the feeling of him being an asshole.

Who said there was no truth in advertising? Drinking Beverage

Milo's logo absolutely looks like a stylised human centipede (if you don't know what a human centipede is, consider yourself incredibly, blissfully lucky and can I join my bubble to yours?)
