This is turning out to be an election that is being shaped by Liberal comedians. After Stewart and Colbert killed the Virginia "transvaginal" ultrasound abortion bill there, now Bill Maher steps up to mock Super Pacs even more so that the Steven Colbert Super Pac joke with a $1 million personal donation to Obama. The donation was announced last night at the conclusion of his hourlong special "CrazyStupidPolitics," which was streamed live on

Reaching into his own pocket for a $1,000,000 donation to the Obama Super Pac, Maher said an Obama victory over any of the Republican contenders was "worth a million dollars" and described the donation as  "the wisest investment I think I could make." He encouraged other wealthy donors to give to the group as well.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
