Brilliant Political Humor and Other Things That Annoy Bill Maher

I sat and read it in about an hour and a half.  This was mainly because there are a great number of pictures that take up a lot of the book’s space and also the book is difficult to just put down.  Maher’s political wit is right on, though at times he made me cringe over some of his humor.  It mostly consists of one paragraph tirades over things or people that bug him.  The chapters are in alphabetical order and each chapter’s last page has a full one to two page full tirade against a single subject.

 

I found myself laughing out loud at times.   Several of the rules I have read before in circulating email humor attributed to George Carlin.  Since a lot of their humor is similar I never questioned that Carlin was the source but now I know better. 

 

My only complaint against the book is that it is too short.

If this book is too short, then perhaps you could continue with More: The Official Republican-Democrat Joke Book reviewed by @CharlesAshbacher. :)
