yahoo, in partnership with some other folks, organized an online debate hosted by charlie rose. the best parts are the bill maher grill. choose a candidate and then pick “bill maher grill” under “choose an issue.” he asks hillary why americans should vote for someone who was fooled by bush, asks obama about the ten commandments, and asks dodd why marijuana is illegal.
also, latest blog post from maher on huffingtonpost:
New Rule: Republicans changed their party before — from the party that freed the slaves to the party that freed Scooter Libby — and they survived. Now it’s time for them to stop pretending they’re still the party of Reagan and take up a new banner: The Party of Superfreaky Superfreaks.
This week, the chairman of the St. Petersburg, Florida, City Council was accused of having sex with his two adopted daughters and their nanny. And he could have been in real trouble, too, if it turned out the nanny was an illegal. But he got ahead of the story when he killed himself by sitting in the garage with the doors closed and the riding lawn mower on.
Two guesses which party he was a member of. And the first guess doesn’t count.
And that’s not fair. You knew he was a Republican, because even in death, he was still wasting gas.
Republicans sex scandals are getting to be like Iraqi car bombings. By the time you hear about one, there’s been another. Ted Haggard, Mark Foley, Bob Allen, Vitter, Craig… It’s like “Clue” only the answer is always “A Republican… in the washroom… with his cock.”
The Republicans should run on that. “America: You’re 230 But We’ll Still Fuck You.” Especially if you’re a dude.
It’s not really inspiring, but it’s better than “Mitt Romney: He Has Hair.”
