  1. Steven says:

    He seemed to admit, however, on Hannity and Colmes the other night, that his books do make fun of liberals after a fashion.

    And every time I have seen him interviewed he makes political points.

  2. Scipio says:

    Yes, but none of those political points are good, sophisticated, or accurate. It’s like watching a blind man playing darts, which makes it a lot like reading his books.
