  •  most amazing exchange on Bill Maher (5+ / 0-)

    One of the conservative guests says that Obama was being mean by using the phrase 'right-wing' which is an epithet.

    Bill Maher is stunned and doesn't know what to say.  He asks if right-wing is an epithet, what equivalent word would he prefer be used.

    The guest doesn't really have an answer and just sort of pouts.

    That right there is how far the Republican brand has fallen.  Center-right country my foot.  None of liberal, progressive, and left-wing are considered bad words anymore and that is a sign of how far the Democratic brand has risen.
