Hitchens Gives the Finger to Maher's Audience for 'Frivolous' Jeering of Bush | NewsBusters.org: "Hitchens: “Cheer yourself up like that. The President has said, quite a great contrast before the podium of the Senate, I think applauded by most present, in his State of the Union address, that we support the democratic movement of the Iranian people to be free of theocracy -- not that we will impose ourselves on them, but that if they fight for it we're on their side. That seems to be the right position to take, jeer all you like.”"

I heard that Maher was as trong supporter of Israel. I wonder what his audience thinks of that. My bother likes Maher. He seems to think there is something cool, denonair and urbane about the perpetual sneer and eye roll. I can not stand the guy myslef.

But Hitchens is brave I will give him that. He even took on Galloway.

Yeah. I don't get it: he used to be witty. Maybe it's too hard.

It is good to see for once a person give back to the uncouth adolescents in their own idiom so they can understand.

Bill Maher is looking more and more like he's trying to become a stunt double for Hefner.

What a lightweight patheticker.
