Remember when Fox News tried to do this joke? Remember the 1/2 Hour News Hour?
I hope not, it would be great if I just dreamed those...

Did Malkin begin writing this the day Obama was elected. Or is this one of those fine works that took two weeks to research and write.
I thumbed through it at work. It's basically just another dipshit, right-wing, crazy-language book that claims that Obama's entire political career has only been possible because he pals around with criminals and greases the right palms because surely an educated, well-spoken man cannot attain political office with any dignity or honesty if he's black. Basically it argues that Obama has, at any time, a legion of conspirators all willing, for whatever reason, to do whatever it takes to help him take over the world and kill babies or something. Whether it be covering up his birth in Africa, to trying to downplay the fact that he is actually Muslim, and Hindu, and Jewish, or covering for the fact that he doesn't know the lyrics to the national anthem because of SOCIALISM AND THE BLACK PANTHERS.
The thing about Malkin is that she's so stupid that even a lot of people on her side of things are uncomfortable with her.

Not to defend asshole pundits and their books, but this is on the level of Limbaugh's self-applauding humor.
It's taking the premise of a dumb book, a real dumb book that some crazy person wrote, to it's absurd conclusion. How is that "self applauding"?
Either a very simple joke has gone over your head, or you have some kind of beef with comedy.
While I don't think it's self-applauding, I've never liked Bill Maher's jokes that much. I'm pretty sure it is the way he delivers them, sometimes stumbles and has cracks in his voice when he's asking a question.
It's actually kind of weird, my conservative friend watches Maher, and I'll listen to Dennis Miller and we'll argue which one is the better comedian pundit.
mixed metaphor I think. shark/gun.
Hugo, I don't think you understand conservative humor at all. The difference is that Rush Limbaugh would show these exact same books, for laffs.
I take back the Limbaugh comparison. I just don't like Bill Maher. He's too smug and satisfied for a comedian. I hate it when they go all serious and pundit.
Maher's problem, and it has been his problem since back in the Politically Incorrect days, is that he has a crap studio audience that will laugh and applaud anything he says like trained seals. That makes for lazy comedy and lazy comedians.
Almost every late night comedian has this problem, though. Maher just tends to take the audience a bit too seriously, and forget how much your tendency to laugh is amplified by being in a crowd and the knowledge that you're watching a TV show taping.
Contrast with Jon Stewart, who always seems amusingly surprised that anyone thinks he's funny, (how many times does he stop himself and go "really?" when something he said gets a laugh) and rarely seems surprised when a joke bombs.
So the fault really lies with Bill. I still like him, though.
