The return of “Real Time with Bill Maher” to HBO tonight promises to raise as many questions as it answers. For example, is that show still on? Did it go somewhere? Does anyone really find Bill Maher funny?

We heard from Maher earlier today, where he was practicing his peculiar brand of “post-racial” humor, or — more accurately — his peculiar brand of “post-humor” racism. But don’t let the keen political insight get lost in the laughs.

If you didn’t notice over the past week that Paul Ryan is white, your HBO subscription just paid for itself. Who else is crazy enough to point this stuff out?

If golf-playing Barack Obama is, as Maher claims, too white for progressives, is it possible that Maher is just too funny for conservatives? Someone out there must get a chuckle out of this guy, right? How funny is he?

Hey, this seems to be going somewhere. Maybe we can put together some draft material for Maher.

Maher is a professional comedian. Please use caution when attempting to craft these jokes at home.
