Default Stewart vs Colbert vs Maher

I'm a fan of all 3. But I have to give it to Colbert.

You're a right leaning libertarian right?

Why do you hate Maher though? I mean I know there's a lot of perfectly valid reasons, but his viewpoints at least from what I've seen are not all too different from the guy in your avatar.

So there must be some other reason you hate him.

I like Jon Stewart the best, Colbert is funny too but I perfer the Daily show. Bill Maher has this scumbag quailty to him.

It was tough between Stewart and Colbert, but I decided Jon's grating laugh and lapses in hilarity were worse than Stephen's tendency to ruin interviews.

The awkward interviews are the best part of Colbert.

I don't agree with Maher on everything and he can surely be very close minded on some issues, but overall I think he's funny, which is his job, so he's good at what he does.

His stand up IMO is underrated.

They're hit and miss with me. The written material is always comedy gold though.

It is kinda funny how so many liberals now despise Christopher Hitchens, who is often looked at as a radical lefty but just happens to support the war in Iraq.

Where's the logic in hating somone just because of their one opinion on one subject?

As for your clip. I think Maher and Hitchens are both right and both wrong. I don't agree with Hitchens on the war but he does kinda have a point that the "Bush is stupid" thing is something that's been adopted by stupid people to joke about and feel better about themselves because "they're smarter than the president".

That doesn't mean Bush isn't a total dumbass of course. But it is a very good point.

The part where he insults the audience is really funny.

Jon Stewart is my man. Honestly, voice of my generation. And people can hate on him for that, doesn't change a thing.

Colbert's the funniest even though The Daily Showis better IMO. I Am America(And So Can You) is hilarious though.
