5. I think he was yelling...
about drone attacks in Afghanistan. Not really topical for this show.

"...blah blah blah the truth about 911.."

8. And that woman on the panel
was vile. Another one who defends things she doesn't actually believe. It's her job to defend these vile ideas.

The one I can't stand is Amy Holmes. When she's on, I really have trouble watching... x(

He's been seeing some hip hop model, who is also black.

24. It doesn't matter anyway, because it wasn't Amy Holmes.
However, the woman WAS vile. Or maybe just worthless. Just a big bag of GOP cliches and talking points without ever once offering any facts to back up her pro-corporate, pro-rich blather.

32. I had never seen her before
and she was absolutely obnoxious. I'll take Amy Holmes any day over that phony. Hope he never has her on again.

30. Since I've heard he has a long-time girlfriend
As well as the same rumors about Ann Coulter and Arianna Huffington, I'm surprised he has time to do the show. :eyes:

14. It was Matt Taibbi (interview), John Heilemann, Tavis Smiley, the repugnant MIchelle Caruso-Cabrera
...and Kevin Smith (who came out and admitted he wasn't as smart as everyone, but proved to be quick on the draw with dick jokes :D)

29. I only got to see the first five minutes... *sigh*
But I did see Overtime on the computer and didn't recognize the woman, though found her quite annoying, from what little I saw. :shrug: :(

...humanity of a situation or policy, just that they have some idiotic nonsense to spew off.

EDIT: and, of course, lying is part of the game.

22. Large Breasts always get onto that show.
It is the only explanation I could come up with. Vile and not smart and not even enthusiastic about her spew.

35. Huh? In no way did I exclude smart women.
I observed that was a plausible explanation for why this idiot made it onto the show, given the demonstrable lack of any other positive qualities. I did not say 'only large breasted women get on the show'. I said this idiot had nothing else. At least Kevin said he was too dumb and stoned to offer anything other than dick jokes.

36. Well, nobody questions why stupid conservative men get on the show...
But when it's a stupid woman, people make wild guesses, like you did. Maher has stated it's extremely difficult to find conservatives who want to come on his show. (Because it's the only show where they don't get thrown softballs all the time --which is sad, because it's a comedy show, and that tells us a lot about the rest of the MSM.) So I guess he's happy with every conservative he can get.

37. yeah I do
However for the most part the truly stupid ones are on because they are famous. She was not in the category of rightwing Illuminati. You could be right though, she was on the show for her merits, unspecified, and I just decided the enormous breasts were a factor because of my sexist world view.

13. It actually was on topic...
Edited on Sat Feb-19-11 01:43 AM by winstars
Bill and Tavis were going back and forth about Muslim men's treatment of women, Bill saying that we treat ours better than they do in Middle East countries blah blah blah; then a guy starts yelling about what a HELLFIRE missile (from a drone I suppose) would do to a Muslim women's face I think... It seemed that security took more than a second to take this person out of the studio. Bill ad libbed something but did say that the person yelling might be surprised that he agrees with the idea of his rant... That's what I heard I belive...

21. Do you guys realize that these kinds of threads are frustrating to most people, because
not EVERYONE has cable - and without a link to the video, why bother posting about it?

27. What's the likelihood that he was tossed from the auditorium? 100%!
Where's the faux outrage crew calling Bill Mahr a hypocrite?

... sorry. That's a different subject. Nevermind.
