|Bill Maher hates comic-books. Who cares what he thinks though?|
If some random moron on the street were to hand you pamphlet they'd xeroxed full of hateful opinions about the things you love, you'd toss it aside and barely give it a second thought. Also, if someone who used to be relatively famous had built-up some much ill-will for being a jerk that they had to resort to bringing equally-hated guests on their show or making idiotic proclamations in the hopes it would get them even any attention, what would you care? The person with the brochure is desperate for engagement from others for their beliefs, and Maher craves some kind of recognition, no matter how negative. He wants people who matter (movie-stars who play super-heroes, big-name writers, etc.) to pay him their mind because he hopes that way he'll seem like he matters too. He does not.
|Maher insulted Kevin Smith--with an outdated photo of Smith pre weight-loss, no less--too,|
because again, he wants people who matter to pay him attention.
