Bill Maher on Bush’s Missionary Zeal

The “Real Time” host compares the arrogance of missionaries to that of the president, who claims certainty as a virtue: “And the message you hear from Bush apologists these days is,  ‘Oh, sure, short-term Bush may have f—ked everything up, but he’s thinking long-term—hundred years into the future.’ Well, thank you George W.

Charlie Chaplin on the Villainy of War

Now seems as good a time as any to revisit the genius of Charlie Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator.” In this climactic scene, Chaplin rails against the menace of war and hopes for a world where people actually care about each other.

Bill Maher vs. the Cult of Di

If the muted response from his normally rambunctious audience was any indication, Bill Maher might have crossed a line on Friday, but he deserves praise for confronting a senseless taboo, exploring the death of Princess Di without the usual beatification and self-flagellation.
