It's an irreverent, witty, sometimes off-color, right wing comedy chat show that's peppered with meaningless goofiness. And here they're having as a guest a Catholic priest, to answer viewer questions- some of which are from robots.

He rolls with it. He's funny. And he gives seriously great answers.

This show destroys so many bits of "received wisdom" in our culture about what the right is all about.

The "right" is not even really a coherent thing besides its belief in the constitution and capitalism. It's a bunch of people who want freedom, not tyranny, and who just want to be left the hell alone to do their own thing. Variety.

The left, on the other hand, can't stand variety of thought and believe that they should control everyone else because they can do a better job than God and can socially engineer humanity into a world wide Utopian society. They are single minded and narrow.

The good Father:
