Charlie Chaplin on the Villainy of War

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.

Gravel’s Poignant Mantra: ‘Young Men and Women ... Dying’

Sen. Craig: ‘I Am Not Gay’

The Idaho senator who was arrested on charges of committing a lewd act in a Minnesota airport apologizes for the scandal but emphatically denies that he is gay: “Let me be clear: I am not gay.

Maher

Bill Maher’s Summer Vacation

The “Real Time” host returns with a look back on the summer, full of the usual barbs like this gem about the Democrats’ FISA capitulation: “Yes the Democrats in Congress took advantage of a deeply unpopular lame duck president by caving into his every whim and agreeing to allow the attorney general to spy on Americans without a warrant.”
