...by the way, he's an idiot.
In the video below (courtesy of NewsBusters), George Clooney - often regarded as a liberal - sets Maher straight.
Here's the exchange from the transcript (the two are delving into Clooney's pet issue, Darfur) :
MAHER, HOST: So, you know, we have Rob Reiner on this time, and I've hit one of his big issues is gay marriage. He's not gay that we know. This is a big issue with you so that you're not Sudanese.
GEORGE CLOONEY: No.
MAHER: I think this is a big difference between liberals and conservatives. You know, I don't think conservatives are bad people. I think they have a hard time being empathetic to people who are not like them at all.
CLOONEY: Okay, now wait. I’ll tell you why, hang on a minute though. I'll tell you why that's not necessarily true. Because this movement, the Sudanese movement, Darfur, the north-south agreement were really truly embraced by the Right even more so than the Left.
So there you have it. Another example of Maher's intellectual dishonesty, laziness and shortcomings on display for all the world to see.
(Kudos to Clooney, a man who doesn't see eye-to-eye with many conservatives on various issues, for having the guts and integrity to call it like it is...)
