Bill Maher nails the Democratic Party, and he's right

After New Rules, he sums up the current state of the Democratic Party better than I ever could.

Why should we care? With the current state of the Democrats and their lunacy of emphasizing "groups" over the rights and responsibilities of individuals, why should we care what Maher or fools like him have to say?

There is a party that does stand up to corporate power, that supports health care for all, gay marriage, cutting the military.. it is the SOCIALIST PARTY USA or the GREEN PARTY. If you support those things, STOP VOTING FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WHICH DOES NOT SUPPORT ANY OF THOSE THINGS!
SO, BILL MAHR, there is an alternative to the Republicrat Party! If only liberals like you would support them instead of insisting we have to support the corporate-controlled, center-right, Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party is too embarrassing to be part of anymore.

Right on, Maynard.

The Democratic party's legacy thus far is capitulation on bended knee.

As far as the Greens go, I'd give anything to see them find a serious, high impact candidate that can draw the necessary attention.

I love Chris Lugo. The cat's heart is in all the right places. Vote for and endorse him every time he runs.
Just imagine what it would be like if the rest of the Dems had the guts McKinney has.

My dream is that Al Gore, Kucinich, Gravel, and the few other Dems who aren't pussies join the Green party and make it media-strong (for lack of a better term).
Being a Democrat is the most frustrating experience of my life.

Bill Maher is a narcissist in the classic tradition that I didn't think existed any more. You know, putting people on a pedestal (Obama) only to knock them down when they disappoint, as they always do, because it's all about him.

He is smart, witty, his commentary is sometimes useful, his panelists are sometimes good, but he's gotten to the point where he rants obsessively against religion, while at the same time espousing his own religion, which appears to be "food fascism," sex and pot. He claims to speak for women's rights, in between not letting the majority of his outnumbered female panelists get a word in edgewise.

In short, the man is getting tiresome.
