You're Not The Boss Of Me Bill Maher And Ben Affleck Is Shallow

He went swimming in the deep end of the intellectual pool again with not nearly enough floaties.

He appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher and got dunked by Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute. Lou Dobbs was on the show too, but you could have easily missed it if you blinked. Danielle knew her stuff. She knew the facts, the dates and the people involved and she refused to let the Moonbats back her down. [Video Link Here] Watching Ben respond with nothing other than a mantra that basically says calling people bad makes them bad, was a bit like reading the beginning and ending of "Flowers for Algernon", slow and a bit depressing.

Sometimes I think it's just plain mean to mismatch intellects like that, but after a few hearty laughs I realized it's worth it. Affleck is just asking for it, like all the other celebrities that have neither the depth nor the understanding to debate these types of issues. Someone please tell Ben that winning an Academy Award doesn't make you smarter, it just makes you an Academy Award winner - which isn't really saying much, especially when you didn't win the award individually but rather were co-nominated with someone who has real talent.
