thinking about dennis miller earlier today
in light of the armstrong williams revalation, his overnight pod people-esque change into a right winger may be explained now

1. The people in the Dennis Miller Show audience are PAID!
15.00 an hour. You can apply at Craig's list. The publication for out of work actors. LOL

2. I never understood his position shift either?
He used to do some pretty liberal stuff on his HBO show, he sure didn't seem like such a Repug dick not too many years ago. His Rants used to be pretty cutting.

4. Yeah, but he was more libertarian than liberal...
I agree that he used to seem pretty cutting edge, but watching some of the repeats, I hear a VERY libertarian view from him at the HBO point, and not necessarily a liberal point of view...

5. I remember thinking he was liberal until he started talking up
Ross Perot. At that point I decided he was merely clueless. Then, when he took his hard-right turn, he also seemed to get seedier-looking. At that point, I wondered if he'd stopped taking his meds (or just had a nervous breakdown). He does seem to have degenerated in the past few years, and I'm not just saying that because he turned into a rightwing nutjob.

They could indeed be paying him, but IMHO they're wasting their money! :shrug:

7. In an interveiw I read with with Miller he says
"I shifted to the right because they pay better. I've got a wife and kids to support, why settle for half the candy bar when you can have the whole thing?"

8. Right from the horse's mouth! I can't say it surprises me.
But he's still a whore.
