Just what we need: more yelling
: I’m watching a one-night-later rerun of Bill Maher’s show and the decibel level is rising to the shrill heights of tabloid TV and CNN before it got dull. Yeah, this is helpful, this is smart. Michael Moore and Canadian loser Kim Campbell team up with Maher to beat up Republican Rep. David Drier over the seven minutes — you know, those seven minutes. They scream for more than seven minutes about the seven minutes. Get a platform, people.
More stupidity. Maher pontificates: “Political conventions are important and they deserve to be broadcast and watched in their entirety.” That’s naive nostalgia and we don’t need Bill Maher to tell us what we should watch.
The only moment to enjoy: Ralph Nader appears and both Maher and Moore get on their knees to beg him to drop out.
