It's a tough time to be a democratic talk show host. Now, with a democrat in office as President, you can't rely on the old stand by jokes of the president being dumb and a bad speaker. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have the correct models for shows, a lot of comedy and a little serious. Bill Maher on the other hand is the opposite, so now he is kind of screwed. The president that he voted for is actually in office, so it's tough to complain about him, unless it's funny, which Bill Maher isn't very good at. This brings up his little rant against Obama, claiming he is on television too much and needs to actually “do something”. He also suggested that Obama act a little more like a Bush, a man Bill Maher despised for the last 8 years. Bill, why aren't you ever happy? I get that your schtick is to be “angry guy”, but why not be angry about policy or something legitimate, not because the guy goes on a date and the news puts it on. The media reports what brings in ratings, why is that the President's fault? You should have made your show more funny and less serious, because when you try to combine the two, you just fail. You're boring Bill Maher. You have been for a while. I wish you'd say something new and creative, just once. Most of the time, you just remind me of Bill O'Reilly.
