Bill's "bringing unsexy back" with a new award honoring dull, dedicated civil servants who know how to make actual progress, as opposed to doing progressive theater.

  • Remember the actor (Willie Garzan) that played "Mozzy" from that show about the art thief caught by and then working for the FBI (White Collar)? He could play Waxman. In theaters soon. Government: The Movie.

  • Politics is like a badly written piece of computer software, change a feature without due care and consideration and it breaks other features elsewhere. That's why radical change is so hard to implement without causing instability, every piece of legislation passed can have unexpected or even counterproductive consequences if it's not picked over with a fine tooth comb, and compromises and exceptions made when necessary. Radicals often propose simple, "Just do X and it'll solve Y!" or vague "We must fix the causes of Y!" solutions, but that's what leads to half baked ideas that either don't work or make things worse. What do we see when truly radical governments take control all over the world? Chaos due to sweeping, ill thought out changes that are based on ideology above all else and will be doggedly adhered to until the people can't take it anymore. So here's to boring politics, improving the features of our society while making sure it doesn't come with a lot of bugs.

  • Most awards are made to look good, but this "baldy " award was intentionally not good looking. Real achievers are not conscious of how they look, but how they perform. Beauty is only skin deep, you have to see the person as a whole and what lies behind those eyes, the mirror of the mind.

  • If Waxman does get shit done, then why did Americans vote for Trump in 2016? Because everything is going great?! Did Waxman draft a policy to bring back home the troops of Iraq and Afghanistan? Did baldy draft a policy to fix student loan debt and the current decades long healthcare crisis, the opioid crisis? And did baldy fix Wall Street regulation procedures? The minimum wage policy was mainly pushed by Sanders.

  • You're mostly wrong, Bill. Not to take anything away from baldy there. But right now, and for the past few decades, changes has happened ONLY if the campaign donors allowed it. You want REAL change? Get money out of politics. No one baldy today will make any substantial change that matters to the middle class today, unless money is barred from politics. There needs to be public financing of elections. Give every citizen a coupon, or something, worth a fixed amount of money, that they can use to give it to any politician they want running for office, and those politician can then cash those coupons to pay for their operations. That's one solution. There are others. But until elections financing is reformed, there will not be real change, until the poor are starving and decide it's time to eat the rich. And that day will not be pretty.

  • God this is the biggest elitist porn tape known to man. How about progressives need to be more vocal when the establishment democrats do everything in their power to stop majority-approval agendas from making any headway. This is no better than conservative propaganda patriotic guff. Sure, waxman as an individual may be stellar, but dont forget the people who also put their heads down and work to give you less than you need or even stab you right in the back. Dont put Nancy Pelosi's name anywhere near this segment too.

  • Because I hate liberals. I am in the process of creating my very own newspaper similar to the EPOCH TIMES. The newspaper will be called the BAYESIAN TIMES .. It is a newspaper to prove that conservative ideals are the true form of life and living and can indeed be mathematically proven to be valid which shall be based on BAYES THEOREM. The newspaper the BAYESIAN TIMES will explore extremely nerve-wreaking issues such as QANON, the election fraud, government waste, child pornography, RAPE, FALSE ACCUSATIONS OF RAPE, sex trading, prostitution, drug trade, the war on drugs, etc. The BAYESIAN TIMES will make the EPOCH TIMES look like the liberal New Yorker by comparison.. It will become the ultimate in extreme-conservative views.....

  • That's the thing 99% of Americans (if not all human beings) don't get about politics: For the most part, if you're an elected official in a democracy--and there are news stories about you every day...if you're constantly being interviewed or going on tv shows or holding rallies, if you go to more press conferences than committee meetings or strategic briefings... aren't doing your job right 😜 You were elected to *work* for us, not to be a tabloid celebrity. Being a politician should be like being a gardener: your employers shouldn't even notice you or your work unless you're screwing up. Otherwise, they should just look out the window and make a vaguely pleasant note that the gardenias are doing well this year. Now I get that a President has to be a bit more visible than a legislator...but we should still only really see him or her on the news during an address, or otherwise while *working* Not every President is going to be a superhero...and in fact, most Presidents SHOULDN'T be. Seriously, think about the past Presidents that are well-remembered historical take out the ones remembered for negative reasons, and what do you have? Presidents who lead the country during wars and chaos and hardship...Presidents who were assassinated...Presidents who tried to hold the country together while it was in real danger of crumbling to the ground. The most beloved and famous Presidents fall into several of those categories at once. Now... Do we want to live in a nation where we *need* a President like that every 4 to 8 years? 😬😰😳 I'm telling you, the *best* thing that could happen to the United States of America would be for us to have Presidents that we forget the names of WHILE they are in office 😂 That would be a utopia: _"One Nation, Under....Um, Gimme A Minute. It's On The Tip Of My Tongue..."_

  • 100000% bill. As someone who leans center right and use to be more ideological. One thing I learned over the last 4 years beyond the Trumpism, and polarization and a million other things wrong with our politics was the idea that the most popular person in congress was the one doing the most good. It's easy to run to the far left or right and please the loudest of the base with the same rhetoric that stop the legit piece of legislation that would do actual good. When politics is popular, and something late night talk show hosts make daily jokes of, politics is not good. Let's make politics boring again, let's turn down the rhetoric and make it a legit debate on policy and ideas. Hope we can get back to that.

    • Oh I guess you didn't get the memo the new rule is that Democrats are all Jesus reincarnate who are doing a perfect job. America is great again and we aren't in any wars anymore! *(While not technically at war the United States has remained in armed conflicts for 2 decades overseas costing trillions of dollars, all supported by Nancy Pelosi, and currently the Democratic administration has cancelled plans to leave Afghanistan and instead is going to send in more "peacekeepers" for their "technically not a war" Military Industrial Complex stimulus plan) This segment was pure cringe.

  • Uhm... did Bill forget how his country was founded, or how democracy was won? Not by paper pushers. This is a modern luxury, and one that no longer serves the masses. And your picks for hard workers - could you be more ineffective, moderate, and New World Order? I'm not advocating for anarchy, but your poster boy should have been Bernie Sanders. Your politics are so dissonant it's a mindf*ck.

  • There are moments when he goes too far, there are times (albeit rarer) when he's too mild and times like these when he's spot on. It's moments like these where the show shines, when rather than tearing someone or something down, Bill Maher praises someone or something long overlooked but didn't deserve to be so. Thanks for the great clip.

  • This was Bill Maher at his very best. His characterization of the "worker bees" who get the job done is splendid. In every successful endeavor it is always these people that get the job done. They get it done because their energies go toward that very goal: Getting the job done; not being a drama queen, a headline seeker, an outrageous tweeter with highly suspect aims. These are the persons that quietly go forward, making the gears sure the gears of the democracy are oiled and continue to turn and go forward; not the persons throwing sand or a monkey wrench into the delicate insides of a democracy to make it grind to a halt. My hat is off the all the unsung heros that "Get 'er done" and a hearty "Thank you".
