Bill Maher's "New Rules" - MrKen's Discussion with The Hapless Hermit


Also, a Hapless Hermit 'Scoop'--


Bill O'Reilly babbles to The Hapless Hermit-Read the exclusive interview on the Hermit's blog!

Recently, my good friend, "The Hapless Hermit"-- his blog appears on my "blogroll of excellence"-- posted a Bill Maher video from a recent (7/24) "Real Time with Bill Maher" show (HBO), and noted that he "didn't hate Bill Maher so much." His complete comment was--

The Hermit Doesn't Hate Bill Maher So Much

I don't agree with everything Bill Maher says but his show is one of the few news/opinion programs that doesn't totally insult the viewer. Here is a clip where he hits the nail on the head about our healthcare system.

MrKen's comment posted on the Hermit's blog was---

Hello again, Hermit!

This is where I have a slight disagreement with you, Hermit. I enthusiastically agree with virtually everything Bill Maher says on his terrific HBO show 'Real Time'. IMO, he is a sharp & well prepared interviewer. The guests are usually extraordinarily erudite and articulate (with a few exceptions e.g., John Bolton, our former U.N. Ambassador), while the debates are always lively and interesting. And Bill Maher is a great comedian! Thx for the You Tube clip; I always look forward to Bill's educational and scathing "editorial" at the end of the "New Rules" segment of the show. This past Friday-8/7, he gave numerous examples of the stupidity of this nation (18% of Americans still think the Sun revolves around the Earth!)

I had the privilege of observing him debate the rabid lunatic Ann Coulter at Radio City some months ago. You probably read the post already on my blog, but for other interested folks, here is the link--

Another of my favorite political satirists is Jon Stewart. His 'Daily Show' http://www.thedailyshow.com/ is a 'fake news' production that contains more actual news and well researched opinion than most of the putative "real news" programs on both the networks and cable.

**********************************

Mr. Hermit later clarified that he actually agreed with 99% of what Bill Maher said and watched his show every week...so, our worldviews appear to be quite similar.
