In his new documentary Religulous, Maher endeavors to explore what he views as the irrationalities of religion and faith with a comedic twist. Maher travels the world, interviewing believers from major faith traditions, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Mormonism, stopping everywhere from the Vatican to the Dome of the Rock to a roadside chapel in North Carolina. While attempting to present his views in a humorous way, his main point is simple: religion is inherently irrational and dangerous, and it “must die for mankind to live.” Read more...(estimated 1:53 mins)
I love well done satire and SNL parodies often set a high-water mark. While I was critical of SNL for the incest reference, their spoof of the VP Debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden is side-splitting hilarity.

World Net Daily said that the skit does appear to mock the out of touch left-leaning reporters in New York and their lack of knowledge about Alaska, but conservative viewers didn’t find it funny. Read more...(estimated 53 secs)
Working people frequently ask retired people what we do to make our days interesting.
Well, for example, the other day I went downtown to go to the News Stand for the Wall Street Journal so I could track my investments. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, ‘Come on, man, don’t you have anything better to do than write a retired person a ticket? Why aren’t you out chasing crooks or
child molesters…that’s out of your league, obviously !!! Read more...(estimated 54 secs)
