It's about time Bill Maher responded to Wayne Brady. Not because he owes Brady any sort of explanation or apology for his previous jokes about Brady supposedly lacking black male fortitude. Maher needs to respond because he has never been reticent to respond to the likes of a Donald Trump or Sarah Palin.
I enjoy watching Real Time with Bill Maher whenever I can, and I especially appreciate the wittiness and humor of his New Rules. Alas, whenever the subject of Islam and the Middle East pops, the show turns ugly.
We've heard it everywhere, on every station, every major news outlet, and every talk radio show: Islamophobia is alive and well in the United States.
Jonathan Swift, in his satirical essay, "A Modest Proposal" recommended that the Irish could fix many of their problems by eating their children. Could he write such an essay in 2013?

There are thousands of parodies of this particular poster out there... but I am a sentimental man, and sometimes you just got to scratch that itch.
Upon learning on Monday that Trump had sued Maher for $5 million dollars in the wake of the remark, Koko the Gorilla has gone apesh*t.
New Rule: Now that he's suing me for five million dollars because he says he's proved that he is not the love child of an orangutan, Donald Trump must learn two things: What a joke is, and what a contract is.
Here's why the left always loses the gun control debate: we're too inclined to acquiesce on serious points -- to concede to the immovable, uncompromising gun people.
If you are looking for some sanity in the gun debate, turn to comedy. Satirists like Stewart, Colbert, and Maher entertain us while revealing the flawed thinking that is making a folly of our democracy.
How many people are harmed by gay marriage? None. How many people are killed by guns every year? About 30,000. So what legislation do we need? Prohibit gay marriage and oppose gun regulation. I feel safer already just thinking about it.
