Aren't we ALL like that? Everyone looks for arguments that support their beliefs. It's called human nature.
Sometimes it works the opposite way. At least for me. If I hear someone arguing for things I believe in, many times the way they are arguing and the vitriol and/or "logic" they use are terrible and I often find myself seeing the validity of what the "other side" says.
Maher used to be pretty funny. In recent years he's become more pompous and has begun to consider himself a bit of an analyst meant to be taken seriously.
He's not that clever, just good at slinging one-liners. His cheerleader audience praises him for sneezing.
I liked him on ABC.
I completely agree. He is the worst kind of pompous when he goes off on rants about food and animal rights issues. He is a complete shill for the PETA brand even though the animal rights wackos have just as strong, and just as inconsistent a belief system as any religion he criticizes.
