Oh yes there is.
Rush Limbaugh swings the same stick that Maher does. Hell, you can make a good argument that Jon Stewart swings a bigger stick than Maher does.
That's the thing - people are people. Just because they have a different political viewpoint doesn't mean that basic human nature fizzles out.
Some people are assholes. Some people are aggressive. Some people are haughty and opinionated and unable to make a point without condescending towards whomever they're making that point to. Some people are extremely good at gathering support among peers and followers alike. Some people are terminally ambitious and extremely charismatic so they rise to a position that allows them to capitalize on or heighten all
of the aforementioned traits.
And neither side has a monopoly on any of those people.
Yes, for every single talking head on one side of the political spectrum, there is a doppelganger on the other side. That's just the way humans work.
