  •  I doubt this "anti-Semitic" joke is the problem (11+ / 0-)

    Pretty weak tea, given that Maher's shtick is drenched in ironic self-mockery. I think you just don't like Maher--fair enough, since he doesn't make himself out to be a very likable guy--and you're grasping at straws to justify it.

    It's very hard to embrace your allegation that Carlin was making a point, and Maher isn't. It seems to me that Maher is ALWAYS trying to make a larger point. This throwaway invocation of a cliche is admittedly just filler. But doesn't every comic use filler? And do you think Maher is genuinely anti-Semitic, or that his audience is anti-Semitic?  Come on now!!!
