Comedian Bill Maher appeared on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews yesterday (you can watch the video clip here), discussing, among other things, his reaction to Barack Obama's speech about race:
"It was such a pleasure to hear a speech for adults, to adults, that didn't pander, that was eloquent.
You know, it's like reading a book nowadays, Chris, you know, so much writing...it's not really writing. You read a John Grisham book and it's like you know it's just an outline for the script for the movie.
And then, once in a while you read great writing, and you go, Ohhh, what a pleasure. And that's what it was like to listen to that speech, for me."
