Maher responds to 'treason' charge

The Alabama congressman f-ed with the wrong comedian. Maher writes: "I'm not a congressman, I'm a comedian. There's nothing I can really do to help or hurt our troops...But a congressman, there's someone who can actually DO SOMETHING to help our troops. In fact, a case could be made that it's a lot more treasonous for someone in his position to be wasting his time yelling at a comedian. Shouldn't he be training his outrage at such problems as troops not having enough armor? Wouldn't that ACTUALLY support our troops more?...I had never heard of Congressman Bachus before this. Now lots of people have heard of him. You're welcome, Congressman, glad I could help get your Q rating up. By the way, are we sure he's really a Congressman? Maybe he's just a guy with a fax machine. You know how fact checking goes these days." (HuffingtonPost -- thanks to Peek reader Dave!)
