Talking Heads vs. Political Comedians

Bill Maher. Dennis Miller. Jon Stewart. Al Franken.

Keith Olbermann. Rush Limbaugh. Bill O'Reilly. Glenn Beck.

These guys are all entertainers. They're not here primarily to inform, they're here to get us to watch. ALL of them. They all have their audiences they play to. Those viewers love saying, "Yes! I agree!" You want to be informed? Read a book... just not Ann Coulter's.

Agree or Disagree? Post a comment.

And now a few headlines:

Keith Olbermann's ratings have dipped to an all-time low. His show is so desperate to get viewers it has taken a controversial new political stance: George W. Bush--4 MORE YEARS!

The movement for Rush Limbaugh to be the voice of the Republican party is gaining momentum especially whenever Sarah Palin speaks. One man remarked, "At least with Rush we can go back to pretending Alaska doesn't exist."

Bill O'Reilly spoke out this week against grapefruit. He said they are quote, "Clearly the citrus is a leftest liberal-- looks appealing on the outside, but inside it's full of bitterness and hypocrisy. We tried to contact the grapefruit. Our calls were not returned."

Glenn Beck just finished his "Common Sense Comedy Tour". The only other comedy tours we'd like to see less: Sean Penn, Al Gore, and Andrew "Dice" Clay.

Tomorrow: Artie Lange ruin Joe Buck's HBO show? Leave your opinion in the comments and I will address it on Friday.

I think it's time for common sense to make a comeback.

Dr. Phil said that on Letterman once and got an applause break.
