Personally, I like Bill Maher. His show is funny, thought provoking and he's not afraid to make fun of sacred cows.
Case in point, his Halloween costume for this year, as reported by hotair.com. The comments section of the site trends towards the "lets lynch his liberal, crack-smoking, terrorist-loving ass," but I thought it was pretty damn funny. And personally, if you can't laugh at death, you really aren't living.
I wonder how many other people are doing variations on the Steve Irwin theme this year. You ca be sure that Bill is not the only one.
