    Like I said before, the Left throws away comics it doesn't like, much like the Right would with particularly strong-willed liberal comics. Liberal or conservative, I found Miller funny, and still do.

    I thought Miller stopped being funny even before his stint on O'Reilly. MNF was a massive Fail. It has nothing to do with his political lean.

    Maher's entire gig is having people in his show for political discussion. To say he is just a comedian misses the mark. Maher espouses a good number of liberal positions. Even if he is a libertarian, hes a left libertarian which tends to fall into the fairly liberal category.

    some conservatives actually "get it" Others not so much.

    George Will, one of the last lions of the right wing whose conservatism is a philosophy rather than a pathology, has heaped scorn on Republican leaders for their cowardly obeisance to Rush Limbaugh.

    Sunday morning on ABC’s "This Week," Will said straight out that "Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh." Last week, Limbaugh infamously characterized Sandra Fluke, a 30-year-old Georgetown University law student, as a "slut" and a "prostitute" who should provide the world with videos of herself having sex because she supports birth control coverage in employee insurance plans. Will said the tepid disapproval of Limbaugh’s words expressed by GOP presidential candidates and congressional leaders demonstrates just how much they are scared of the king of hot-talk radio.

    For a conservative to try to slough off Limbaugh's influence over the republican party by comparing him to Maher is a desperate, even if merely feeble, attempt to diminish the significance of Rush's hold and influence over them and to mitigate the seriousness and damage of his rhetoric.

    You're stuck with rush for good or bad. You laid down with this mongrel and now you have fleas. Let's not forget that it was the republicans themselves that bestowed Rush with "Honorary Congressman" in 1994.

    Of course it's the leftys that throw away comics. Really? So comics that fail are simply failing because of the left? It has nothing to do with whether or not they are actually funny? You actually believe this pap you're shoveling? Wow.

    Yes, I do. Comics with political viewpoints that use them frequently attract a certain crowd of people who think, although the man or woman is exaggerating to make their humorous point, they speak the truth. Change the perception of the truth and a large chunk of admirers split.

    Consider if the Blue Collar Comedy Tour fellas had a serious cultural and political change in their lives. We can argue that Larry the Cable Guy is among the dumbest comedian characters (as its a gag) to come about in decades, but nevertheless, if each of those guys changed their perspective, I bet you would likewise see a large rejection from former fans or passive followers. Suddenly, "they aren't funny anymore."

    I like Nick DiPaolo, he's conservative.

    I liked Bill Hicks, and he was a stoner conspiracy theorist.

    Bill Hicks was funny. So is Foxworthy. Miller's references became too obscure. I don't mind that he's a walking thesaurus, but it got to the point that he was more interested in showing off his IQ than actually being funny.

    The only one of those 4 I enjoyed is Ron White. He is freaking hilarious IMO. White is oddly enough, more liberal than the other 3. Although with him it is hard to tell. He seems all over the map politically. He seems to support gay rights, legalization of pot but is pro death penalty. Foxworthy's redneck shtick has grown thin on me. Engvall was just never funny IMO, and Larry is fairly one dimensional.
