    Why do comedians tend to be so smart?

    Stacy, I can only assume you’re referring to Eddie Izzard, and NOT Bill Maher.

    So terrible, anyone who thinks that God will take care of problems for them should not be elected to office. Although I am a little wary of judging someone based on things they said 20 years ago. Surely she’s said some stupid things more recently?

    Comedians are usually quick witted though, and I’d consider Eddie an exception to this, I rarely think that comedians are terribly smart people. They do tend to seem smarter than they really are because the people they riff on are so exceedingly stupid. Maher is definitely a case in point.

    Bill Maher is a very smart guy. His political insights are usually especially keen. That he’s wrong about vaccines and science-based medicine doesn’t negate that. You can be smart and wrong, and you can be right and stupid.

    Yeah, this is definitely a case of sour grapes reverse skeptcism guys. Comedians who are any good at all are smart, almost always, and Maher is one of them.

    Here’s a clue: CO’D is an amoral moralist. She can’t help being what she is, and neither can anybody else. She moralizes at other people because she enjoys the high ground where everybody else is beneath her, and she has no equals, and she is absolutely unable to see her own faults.

    She can lie nonstop and still believe she is utterly truthful. She can insult everyone and still believe she has a kind heart. And so on and so on.

    Nobody can fix what’s wrong with her.

    “Co’D is an amoral moralist..” If she were a male she would have Pope potential.

    What a stupid cow – so all the Germans hiding Jews and lied about it to the gestapo should have waited for an inspiration from dog for the correct action – whom is this cunt kidding?
