He can try for a hundred years, but Bill Maher (author of silliness like this will never be fit even to fix breakfast for NRO's Rob Long, Mark Steyn, or P.J. O'Rourke.

His big point is that the Republicans are angry and the Democrats aren't? Ha! When it comes to "vein-popping, gut-churning rage", it's hard to find any Republican who's the equal of Ted Kennedy -- although Barbara Boxer comes close enough to be mocked for it on Saturday Night Live (Chris Matthews, too, can get pretty worked up over nothing). And by the way, has Maher ever seen or heard of the head of the Democratic National Committee -- a man named Howard Dean? Talking about "vein-popping" for the new millennium . . .

But according to Maher, "consumes the entire right wing." Hmm. Yes, everyone from Rush Limbaugh to Hugh Hewitt to Bill Frist is incoherent with rage. And did you hear the President's tantrum last night?

The difference between Republican and Democratic anger? Republicans get mad at America's enemies. Democrats get mad at America -- at least,when they're not whining. Like Maher.
