A Conserva-Palooza on Tonight's Bill Maher

Since his return a few weeks ago, Bill Maher has been having an exceptional season. I think he was waaaayyyy too soft on Andrew Breitbart two weeks ago, but what's done is done. My girl, Nora O'Donnell, was supposed to be on last week, but weather in DC prevented her from appearing.
Tonight's guests will be renowned atheist Richard Dawkins, conservative humorist P.J. O'Rourke, Wall Street Journal's Andrew Ross Sorkin, and right-wing columnist (and conservative woman I'd most like to hatef$*k) S.E. Cupp. By my count, that is three conservatives on a "liberal" show. Wish there was a conservative host in existence who would allow his views to be chalenged the way Maher does.

One interesting note is that Ms. Cupp, author of Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media's Attack on Christianity, is an atheist herself. I'd really like to hear her discuss the "liberal media's" attack on a religion she thinks is bullshit. Clearly, she views conservative Christians as a cash cow, and just wants to make a few bucks off celebrating their cause. But the right always has a tough time deciding who they are most beholden to: the all mighty or the all mighty dollar!

Hi, Dave. I see our buddy TP visits, so I thought I'd pop over too.

a conservative host in existence who would allow his views to be chalenged the way Maher does...That'll be the day.

It's the reason why conservatives, in general, are so misinformed about most everything. They refuse to have their views challenged in any way. They live in a right wing echo chamber, and on the rare occasion where they hear something they disagree with, they call it bias.

You two crack me up. I will give you credit, Dave. You do at least venture forth from you left wing sources to get a few differing viewpoints. (Too bad you don't actually analyze some of those contrary viewpoints a little more closely though.) Not so for most of your fellow political travellers though.

As for Ms. Cupp and her atheism, I would be curious to hear her comments on that as well.

I would submit to you that most true atheists are apathetic to all religions. They don't care if someone practices a faith or not.

What most folks that call themselves atheists these days really aren't that so much as anti-Christian and perhaps anti-Jewish.
