      Christianity or Judaism off the hook in his concern about theocracy. Normally he is simply anti-religious.

      You could tell how much Greenwald pissed him off though by his rather abrupt change of topic.

      but, without a doubt, one of the very best moments
      for his show.  

      It's easy for leftists to let points like Greenwald's slide past, without being made to really confront the horrific truth that those attitudes are built into our daily discourse.  Maher provided a perfect foil for Greenwald, by showing just how deep it goes.  It should be a good lesson and reminder for everyone what we're up against, in others and in ourselves, and not just a moment to chide Maher.  

      I applaud Maher for letting his show "go there."

        so, so obvious blind spot. It makes me feel like, "I can't watch this. If this flaming liberal has this giant blind spot then there truly is no hope."

        Reaganomics noun pl: belief that government is bad, that it can increase revenue by decreasing revenue, and unregulated capitalism can provide unlimited goods for unlimited people on a planet with finite resources.
