Bill Maher 05-18-07

I think this was one of the best shows he ever had. I found myself laughing a lot, but really resonating with the material. I absolutely adored Russell Simmons. My God, what an amazing man. I think I’m going to include him the next time someone sends me a meme with the question, “If you could pick anyone living or dead to have lunch with, who would it be?” Anyway, you have love YouTube. I found the entirety of the program on Friday in 6 parts. So, you can see it all here. (Click Read up above to see more.)

If you view only one of these, let it be the last one (6 of 6) which includes “New Rules.” There is a priceless piece about Falwell.

  1. Scaring the shit out of a fish! Funny shit!

    Regarding the Jerry Falwell bit, I was taken to task elsewhere for referring to Michael Moore as fat in a recent post. The blogger tried to make a point that that was irrelevant, and that I didn’t say anything about a Republican congressman who was a pedophile and fat. Whatever.

    My response was to ask her why there was any difference between my fat reference and the elation exhibited by Leftwing bloggers at Falwell’s death. IMO, both are/were reprehensible human beings and deserving of criticism. The characterizations of each fall under the heading of satire and I don’t think it’s a Left/Right issue at all.

    I don’t cringe at celebrations of Falwell’s death, neither am I adversely affected by criticism of Moore’s physique.

  2. I think Bill succinctly stated what I feel about Falwell. I’m not elated at his death, but I’m definitely NOT sad. Realistically speaking in this world right now, as soon as one fundamentalist bites the dust another one comes up for air. So, it’s not like we’re rid of this shit forever just because one is six feet under.
