I used to watch him quite a lot and really enjoyed the show, but his pseudo-intellectual arrogance slowly engulfed the air and I couldn't pretend it wasn't there.
Anyone notice he sounds great in all his rehearsed lines and arguments where he can pour his condescending half-serious-half-apathetic drivel over his words so his audience thinks he's saying something so true and meaningful, and when he's debating his guests where he has to actually use his intelligence, his main rebuttal to their arguments is "Aw Come on..."?
I'm not surprised he suggested Paul Ryan was a libertarian, Maher is simply one of them guys who declare themselves liberal because the GOP is full of crazy people and he wants to be associated with the opposite.
