Bill Maher makes me think I'm wrong believing in American liberalism.
No kidding. I don't know but i kind of feel like i hate California now?
Broken record time for SPK on Bill Maher (because I know everyone cares what I think):
1. His scripted bits are the best parts of his show.
2. He talks over his guests far too much, especially the right wingers. He needs to learn the Jon Stewart art of letting the nutter make enough rope to hang themselves with.
3. No matter how much I might agree with him, he's practically an anti-vaxxer, or at least he was. Bill fucking Frist had to set him straight on vaccines (Maher said flu shots were just "injecting yourself with sickness" and other myths as gospel) and that cancer treatments had actually made advances in the past 50 years (Maher apparently doesn't).
The quote in the description comes from the print version of this New Rule:
He's right about the almond milk.
Ever try the unsweetened stuff? Tastes bitter as fuck.
Mill Maher needs to shut the fuck up. He makes me ashamed to be technically on the same end of the political spectrum.
Buying into the idea of a binary spectrum in the first place is a bad idea.
When conservative pundits talk about 'smug liberals', they have a picture in their heads of exactly this.
And yet even Maher only generates about .35 Hannitys of smugness. The host of "Newsbusted" is a smugness singularity from which not even a laugh track can escape.
Liberals are supposed to have laughably unrealistic standards and then refuse to vote when they're not met.
If conservatives could actually feel shame over what they've done, they'd kill themselves. It and the lack of empathy is probably a defense mechanism for self(ish)-preservation.

California Uber Alles!
I am Governor Jerry Brown / My aura smiles and never frowns / Soon I will be president… / Carter power will soon go away / I will be Führer one day / I will command all of you / Your kids will meditate in school / California Uber Alles

Maher's comedy is hit or miss, but his show has great guests and interesting ideas. If there was no Stephen Colbert, he'd be indispensable.
And even Colbert doesn't feature such long stretches of uninterrupted intelligent talk.
