As any regular reader of this blog will know, I cannot stand Bill Maher. I think he is utterly foul and caustic, and there is probably not one thing he says about politics that I agree with him on.
However, one thing I do respect about him is that he has the intellectual integrity to bring on guests to whom he is ideologically opposed and will engage in feisty debate. I think that's why the Fox News analyst/commentator programs are more popular than most other similar cable shows because even though most of the hosts lean conservative, they invite guests from all ranges of the spectrum.
And so, here is my girl Ann on Maher's show a few days ago to discuss her new book "Mugged" (which is excellent, by the way) and other issues of the day.
WARNING: There is a point where Maher calls Obama a "Rockefeller Republican." Please make sure you are not drinking, eating anything spicy, or sitting on a chair that is easy to fall off of.
