My roommate loves Bill Maher. He gets tickets to the live recordings here in LA and lines up hours before the show just so he can be one of the voices in the background. He occasionally asks me if I want to join him and I usually say no. I don’t like Bill Maher. But how can that be? I am a staunch Democrat, young , Latino and gay, no less. I should be a far left liberal (or progressive) cheering Bill Maher’s politics – a man who no matter what he says is a left wing activist. But that is also not true. I am a self-described left-leaning moderate Democrat. With that alone, some of you may stop reading right here thinking that my politics are different than Maher’s. But that is not the case either. I generally agree with Bill Maher’s political ends, such as universal healthcare, the legalization of same-sex marriage and decriminalizing pot use. But I still don’t like Bill Maher.
