Bill is the New George Carlin!

If George Carlin were still around and took a political affiliation, then he would be Bill Maher! Bill uses George's same brand of humor and spins it to his his left-wing point of view. Most of the material here is from his Real-Time New Rules segments but some of it is new. He says things that if there real ghosts they would have to be naked. This is because the person died and their soul is wandering the earth. Their pants are souless so why would they also be doomed to wander the earth?

Bill is very strong on saying that anyone not believing in climate change is living a fantasy, that the conservative Republican pundits have repeated certain untrue messages over and over that they are now accepted as being true (especially with things invovlving universal healthcare).

Though Bill is a comedian, he seems to be one of the few "liberal" voices that backs up what he says with cogent arguments (unlike the zannies at MSNBC). Nobody is immune to his ironic barbs including Democrats, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Though the bulk of his complaints are against the most conservative Republicans and pundits like Hannity and Limbaugh.

Bill has a funny preface which he even attacks the reader for being silly for reading the book's preface. In it he also states that this book is the second of a trilogy so another one will be coming in a few years (he needs time to build up more material).

If you can put all political predjudices aside and just read the book you will find it hilarious. I know I have seen several of the most Conservative of guests (Ann Coulter, Dan Issa ) laughing out loud at his New Rules segment on his HBO Real Time show.
