There better be a BruinKid diary in the works about tonight's episode of Bill Maher, because:

On his show tonight, Bill Maher squared off with Dinesh D’Souza, the face of a new anti-Obama documentary.
Mr. D'Souza will not be making another appearance on that show.

You can view the entire segment here, though I can't figure out how to embed the video. But the best part for me was when Maher...

...confronted D’Souza over the controversial comments that got him fired from ABC ten years ago, which were set off by comments D’Souza made on Politically Incorrect.
You know back when Maher was fired from his successful ABC show "Politically Incorrect", for allegedly saying really offensive things in the aftermath of 9/11? I'll bet a lot of you didn't know that he was agreeing with something that Dinesh D’Souza had just said, namely that no one who flies a plane into a building can be described as a "coward". An evil asshole, certainly, but not a coward. D'Souza had just said the very same thing, and Maher was just agreeing with him.

And on tonight's show, Maher reminded D’Souza that he hadn't said a fucking word in his (Maher's) defense when he was fired:

"You slipped away like a RAT".
That part starts at about the 7 minute mark. Watch it. And the rest of it.

The entire thing is just a complete deconstruction of rightwing bullshit. It's beautiful.

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.
