    ^ We were talking about Bill Maher. I'm sure there's already a "I hate Americans as a nation-state" thread around here somewhere.

    Yep, and I was talking about how Bill Maher dumbs down the national discourse with his extremist rhetoric.

    That surprises you?

    In Obama's words isn't conservatism just "thinly veiled social Darwinism"?

    Wouldn't that fall in line with the average Manson fan?

    Bill Maher is no more a dishonest propagandist than any other political commentator in America

    At least Maher is funny

    It seems pretty obvious why a portion of his fans lean to the right

    but I wasn't looking to offend or be a know it all

    It's just something I've thought about a lot as well

    ^ There are few things I dislike more than arguing semantics.

    I would agree with you there.

    You're half right. They all suck.

    I'm still confused as to how conservatism of the fans was ever brought into this topic in the first place. It seems rather shoved here with no pretense to support it. I can certainly hate on Maher as the liberal douchebag he is without expressing even a modicum of conservative views. It was mentioned as "tangentially connected" but it really has nothing to do with anything. Here's the proper thread.
