Election 2012

The Million Dollar Obamabot

Bill Maher wins the day.

During a performance of his comedy special "CrazyStupidPolitics" Thursday night, Maher announced a gift of $1 million to Priorities USA Action, an Obama-supporting super PAC. While he mocked the group's clunky name, saying it was "named by Borat," his publicist said that Maher was deadly serious about the donation and believed a second term for Obama was “worth a million dollars."

I hope he's prepared for the onslaught of cranky absolutist progressives who will insist he just paid $1 million so President Obama could punch hippies and kill babies for another four years.
