HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," episode 270 that aired on Friday February 1, 2013, was a rarityeveryone on the show was a believer in reason,--i.e. no right-wingers. But even reasonable people can disagree. But when reasonable people disagree it is a debate, not a brawl. The only problem with the show tonight is that it was not ten hours long. Bill likes to cover a lot of topics during each show and that doesn't allow for a full discussion and resolution of the issues.
Now for the voices of unreason: We have the Republicans in the House and Senate. The Republicans behaved disgracefully, browbeating Hillary during the hearings on Benghazi, and then being absolutely vicious to Chuck Hegal during his hearings for confirmation as Secretary of Defense. And Chuck Hegal is a Republican! Bill said that Republicans had turned against Hegal because since he was nominated by Obama "he has Obama's cooties on him." (It's true, Republicans act like children.)
There's a gun lobby. There's a defense industry lobby. Cory said we need a lobby to do rational things. The Reason and Rationality lobby--I like the sound of that.
