Could be. As long as you recognize that you're fine. It's when people think that they aren't slanted either way that they have trouble. I recognize my own conservative slant in the grand scheme of things. It helps.

I don't know that I agree with that assessment. Maher = Coulter IMO. Neither are to be listened to if you want facts. If you're looking for extreme opinions and/or propaganda then listen away.

Moderates do not get their info or entertainment from either of these two jackasses. :-t


I agree that their respective messages are equal, though opposite (if that makes sense), but I find Maher infinitely more entertaining. Him I can watch and laugh and say "what an idiot." I can't leave her on my television for more than 30 seconds because any longer and I'll throw something at the set and break it.

Well, at least Maher has a background in entertainment. He tries to be entertaining. Coulter just tries (and succeeds) to be a jackass (and that's using a nicer term for her than I should).

Both make me sick to my stomach. I can't have either on my TV for more than 30 seconds. :-P

Maher gets away with more because he's a comedian. He's out to entertain; Limbaugh says equally inflammatory things, and just this weekend Ann Coulter called John Edwards an expletive. People are getting both numb and bored with these entertainer types who make inflammatory comments; Maher's going for viewers, Limbaugh's going for listeners and Coulter's trying to sell more books. But Robertson isn't an entertainer, he's this so-called theological leader and, presumably, when he talks, his 1,000,000 faithful viewers listen.

That's the only reason people get bent out of shape about Robertson. I think he sets a bad example for what he's supposedly supposed to be preaching. If he wants to get away with it, then he should quit pretending he's a man of God and admit he's in it for the money.

First, I don't think he was calling for Cheney to be killed. But it was a poor choice of words. And I condemn him for it.

I'm always against calling for the death of someone with whom you disagree.

I am against it when Ann Coulter openly called for Clinton to be assassinated or for someone to poison Justice Stevens's creme brulee.

I am against it when Sean Hannity told listeners that stopping Pelosi was worth dying for.

I am against it when Glenn Beck openly advocates killing anyone he deems liberal.

I am against it when Bill O'Reilly advocates jailing "secular humanists."

I am against it when Rush Limbaugh advocates nuking much of the world and killing billions.

And I'm against it when Maher suggests, in any form, that someone should kill Cheney. I agree that we'd be a better, stronger country with him out of power, of course, but I don't want the guy dead.

I agree with Maher that if he was NEVER the VP maybee things would be different but disagree that if he were to die a magic fairy would bless Iraq with peace and flowery happiness


Yea, I agree with you, Cheny dying now wouldn't fix everything, but if he was never vp...

so far as I can see, Maher = Coulter sans boobs. I can't stand either one of them.
Not a big Cheney fan... severely dislike him, actually. But an assassination would result in more turmoil and more violence, not less.

I don't think that Maher called for Cheney's assassination.

And I don't think there is a single person on the left as bad as Ann Coulter.

The funny thing is, Coulter and Maher are friends. She'd make a nice beard for Maher, and vice versa.
