    On Bill Maher's show last night he and Chris Matthews seemed to rip on Stewart and the Daily Show pretty hard for the soft interview they gave Kerry. They never mentioned Jon or the show by name, but brought up candidates going on comedy shows and being given free passes.

    It was brought up in the context of Maher and Matthews patting themselves on the back for how they, unlike other journalists, ask the tough questions and follow up on them. But to me it came off sounding a little jealous, like that maybe Stewart got Kerry and they won't. Especially when Maher is pretty far from the front of the list of people who would ever grill John Kerry about anything. So his attitude towards the Daily Show's interview seemed odd.

No, Bill Maher would grill Kerry about exactly two things -criminalizing pot, and his latest thing, not going after high-fructose corn syrup hard enough. I like Maher and his show, but he's again starting to do what made him absolutely intolerable during the later part of politically incorrect - spinning EVERYTHING back to legalizing pot, and wanting to spend 3/4 of the show sprouting off himself about whatever subject is irking him lately. Hey, it's funny and informative ONCE - not every freaking week for half an hour.

I think he needs an hour-standup special on HBO to blow off all that shit so he can go back to hosting a good show.
