I have to agree. Bill Maher is an absolute buffoon, but a relatively influencial buffoon. And I've seen HBO documentaries that have influenced my thinking on one issue or another. Mind you, I haven't run across any in the last decade or so because I cancelled HBO and told them that I'd reconsider when they fired that buffoon, Bill Maher.
