  •  Here's the answer.... (2+ / 0-)

    Bill Maher is a true Independent and always keeps an open mind but he's not one who is afraid to criticize even people like Obama whom he supports for re-election.  At times I may disagree with him but I genuinely think he's authentic.

    The reason why he always brings Ann Coulter on is because unlike MSNBC, he actually challenges those in the GOP and the far right on regular debates.  Hardly any GOP people appear on MSNBC, except maybe Steve Schmidt and Michael Steele who serve as the more reasonable type of Republican spokespeople.  Yes, Maher and Coulter get along but Maher is no hypocrite.  He actually challenges Coulter regularly and isn't afraid to fire back hard.  Here's an example:

    Here's another thing you may not realize:  Bill Maher DOES actually read and look into facts, more so than the average person.  He has been the only frickin person in the world who seems to be able to explain why President Obama could not close Gitmo (even though one of Obama's first executive orders was to close the prison)!  Not a single Democrat so far has been able to come forward in doing so, at least not to my recollection.

      Pts, but I stick to my original positions---arguing (or, even having a discussion with) someone like Ann Coulter would be like wasting oxygen.  I don't argue with people with whom I cannot have an actual discussion or learn something from...The fact that many members of the GOP don't go on MSNBC is (I am sure) a decision made on the part of those individuals and not the network.  I am neither an Obama nor a MSNBC cheerleader per se...I support both, but have absolutely no problem criticizing either.  And I am well aware of who Maher is, I just don't always agree with him.
