I find Dennis Miller funny but his comments are a bit over his audience.  However, that kind of adds to his mystique I guess.

I agree with his comments about PC and all that.  However, the bottom line is that the Iraq War was about greed not protection from terrorism.  Therefore, his pro-Bush move is not all the way justified.

Miller is a sellout and a has been.  He was once
moderately funny, if abrasive and sarcastically
tedious. He used to take on politicians and point out
their hubris and their arrogance.
Now he’s one of them after an epic fail of major
proportions, and he’s become what he used to mock and
despise.  The wrong-wing must be paying him well to be
a traitor to his earlier self.  I think that this is
the only way he can make money now.  If you can’t be
‘em because you’re not really funny, then join them and
cash in, and laugh all the way to the bank.

Miller couldn’t be any more irrelevant. Has he had an original line since 1987?

Funny thing is, Dennis Miller isn’t a republican.

In reading this, I’m seeing folks who bought into the John Kerryisms and fail to see the bigger picture.

Clinton is supposedly a sexual harrasser? He blew his wad on a girl’s dress. Not saying Thomas wasn’t, he was guilty as can be. But I think it’s a little hypocritical to say republicans are the only hypocrits and think rainbows will be coming out of our asses is the democrats are in power when history has proven otherwise.

Let’s try a little critical thinking here, k kids?

I don’t know how you can be a Republican and be a stand-up comedian.  Democrat, maybe, possibly, but Republican?  That’s got to work about as well as a VERY pregnant pole-vaulter.

Comedians must be iconoclasts.  Republicans, by definition, are not.  Comedians challenge our stereotypes, our knee-jerk reactions and fundamental assumptions.  Republicans only challenge the last: That Americans WANT to be well-informed.

The foundation of all comedy is non-sequitor—the unexpected.  The only thing the Republicans can do that’s unexpected is break the minimum standards for what decent people WON’T do in a campaign.

Comedy attacks hypocracy.  Republicans are hypocrites, who attack Democratic hypocracy while defending their own.  Orren Hatch is a PERFECT example of a Republican hypocrite.  This man STAUNCHLY defended Clarence Thomas when it was clear he was a sexual harasser, but just as staunchly attacked Bill Clinton for SUPPOSEDLY being a sexual harasser.

So comedians (at least funny ones) can’t be Republican. They usually aren’t Democrat, but they can be.

So, I have to say that I NEVER thought Dennis Miller was funny, just snotty.

I agree Dennis Miller used to have balls when it came to taking on politics, and he was at one time pretty damn funny. unfortunatly like so many Americans he has traded in his soul and now enjoys getting fucked up the ass by the Bushies. He is a has been and a hack, not even his HBO special is funny. As for Jon Stewart I wish he would be tougher on his guests (Especially the ass wipes like Miller) as the rest of the Daily Show is great.

Dennis Miller used to be the hottest on-topic political comedian on the planet, in his time as good as Will Durst or Lewis Black.

Then, one night, some aliens must have slipped a pod next to his bed, and voila - Miller is now, all of a sudden, a mouthpiece for the conservative right. What’s up with that?

Hey, folks…anyone can have a change of heart, but you don’t go doin’ a 180 like that and expect to be believable…

Miller’s career was in the toilet, and maybe he just figured, if ya can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

After his failed attempt as a sports announcer, he was never the same.

Miller was finished, a failure, a John Stewart wanna-be in the worst possiblle way. Instead of retiring and taking a job as a Matree’d at some stuffy restaurant, he diceide to play to the dumbed down right wing market. It has proved to be another bad decision he’s made in his life. Miller really sucks as a comedian.

Come on, guys have a little compassion for The Dennis.  When he hosted Monday Night Football he contracted a real bad case of testerone envy.  When he was fired his head and balls exploded.  Without his brain and balls it was only natural that he joined those suffering from the same affliction.

Miller died and moved over to the more profitable neo-christian right wing market.
The daily Show is a fantastic insight into the embarrassing state of our government and country.

I’m afraid Jon handled a-hole Miller with fellow-comedian kid gloves. I have to admit Miller did well with his extended schtick, mostly keeping Jon laughing and off message.

Wish Dennis hadn’t gone over to the “Dark Side”.

Dennis Miller is dead.  I don’t know who the neocon android is that replaced him, but he’s not nearly as insightful or funny as Miller was.

The more I see this program the more I am convinced that Stewart is a retard and a reactionary.
