Bill Maher gives a million dollars to pro-Obama Super PAC


A few days ago, Bill Maher tweeted that he had a surprise announcement coming on February 23rd that would knock our socks off.  My (tongue in cheek) guesses were that he was either getting married, found a reason to believe in a god, or was never indulging in weed again.

Silly me:

Washington (CNN) - “My surprise tonight is I would like to tonight announce a donation to the Obama Super PAC—which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name ‘Priority (sic) USA Action’,” Maher said. “I know, it was named by Borat. But tonight I would like to give that PAC one million dollars.” [...]

[W]hen he spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper, he said that other than Ron Paul, the Republican candidates running for president have “horrible society killing ideas about America.”

“The rest of those people are, of course, selling their souls to the corporate interests who back them,” Maher said. “They all act like god created the world in January of 2009, and then Barack Obama completely screwed it up.” [...]

“My money is still on Mitt Romney,” said Maher when asked who the eventual Republican nominee. “And I think he’s going to get the nomination, and then I think Obama is going to beat him like a runaway sister wife, yes, I do.”

The president's super PAC only raised $58,815.83 in January. Thanks to Maher, it now has at least $1,058,815.83.

New Rule: Be thankful that Bill Maher is in your corner.
