Zo is right...don't hate Bill Maher...

  • Sure he was a second rate comedian before his show on HBO....still is in IMHO...
  • Sure, I can't watch his show without wanting to throw something through the TV most of the time...
  • Sure, he pits the most popular liberals he can find against usually weak or obscure right wing guests to be fair...

But as Zonation points out you're hating the player, when you should be hating the game...


Remember when Rush Limbaugh had his show?  Yeah, me neither really...he did have one back in the early 90's for a while...had guests from the right wing of the isle on the show as well as popular guests like Ted Nugent and Lee "God Bless the USA" Greenwood (for those of you that missed Desert Shield/Storm)...but it never was "mainstream" by any real means.  Dennis Miller had a show on HBO for a while too, his sense of humor I think was to dry and highbrow to last on that network... who do we have?  There are conservatives in Hollywood, but who is young and charismatic enough to make a show work?  Norm MacDonald, thats who?  He has the comedy chops, generally leans to the right and with the correct amount of coaching and PR work could be a very convincing alternative to the Bill Maher vibe.  Of course he is not an American and that could turn a lot of people off so here is another wild card you might not think of...Adam Sandler...yep, registered Republican.  We might have to wait a few years until the movie roles slow down for him, but he is popular, funny, has made a slew of popular and successful films in liberal Hollywierd and most of all, has played to a populist mindset of character selection in most of his films.  His films generally show a common man with his head and heart in the right place that can succeed by following his dream and trying hard to achieve a goal (Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy, Mr. Deeds).

I think that would be awesome...of course now that I say that it will never happen, but a guy can dream about a show like that the same way he can about an SR1911 being dropped in my lap...
