I fear that there is no intended irony in the following words from Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter:

"Bill Maher said recently, 'Mr.'s time to do what you've always done best: lose interest and walk away. Like you did with your military service and the oil company and the baseball team...It's time to move on and try the next fantasy job. How about cowboy or spaceman?'

Maher is certainly one of the most gifted political commentators of the age."

Unfortunately, this opinion is not uncommon. I saw Maher debate Bill Kristol of The Weekly Standard in front of a largely Jewish group here in Los Angeles. The belief that "if only Maher were president, we'd be a lot better off" was literally expressed by the man sitting behind me and tacitly endorsed by thunderous applause from the audience each and every time the troll (Maher, not the guy behind me) opened his mouth.
