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.
"When you elect Mitt you're electing every right wing nut he's pandered to in the last 10 years. If the Mitt-mobile does roll into Washington it'll be towing behind it the whole anti-intellectual, anti-science freakshow."

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.
