MY GOSH NAY!  He makes my skin crawl faster than any human being on the planet.

He wasn't "politically incorrect", he trumpeted every PC cause.  He was simply rude and obnoxious.
One of my friends claims O'Reilly has a similar effect on him (and I can see similarity in tone).

They need to get a redneck to run a show called "politically incorrect", not a diehard liberal.  If they wanted to call it "politically correct and rude" Maher would be the man.

he can be rude, but I do not really see the PC thing... I mean... Disney did fire him off of ABC for saying some un-pc things.

I say "yay", but most people here would paint me as liberal anyway so i guess its obvious.

Perhaps, I'd classify what he said to get fired as ignorant, but I'm biased (since I can't stand him).

I think he is entertaining.  Don't give a *&^% about his political views just as I don't about Rush Limbaugh who I also find entertaining.  Both are doing their job, to enterain you.  You don't have to believe in what they say, because what they say is so ludricrous it has to piss off people, which then makes you controversial, which in turns make's your ratings go up.

For once I agree with Swifty.

I actually like listening to Rush even though I think almost everything he says is stupid.
These guys are great entertainers...thats it
