I voted today for Roseanne Barr because I believe America needs a man in the White House who knows how to make people laugh. At least that's what I did in an alternative universe where unicorns deliver cookies to my house every morning. I wonder who voted for her (and her vice president Cindy Sheehan).

If you've read some of the proposed constitutional amendments on the Florida ballot, some of which are thinly veiled attempts to insinuate religion into public policy, you'll understand Maher's point.

This is a different kind of church. Election 2012

It's more fun voting in a gentrifying ghetto. Black, white, brown and yellow where Rick James, Donna Summer and other characters magically appear.

Just a general Facebook observation. Many of my Republican friends are posting about overseas issues like Libya & the supporting the troops, while my Democratic friends are posting about healthcare, women's issues & education. Interesting.

And as I posted on Facebook: So, if all my students vote using reason & compassion, I think the reasonable and compassionate will win the presidency.

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.
