Maher on Rove (video)

Bill Maher provides a human and humorous overview of the Rove case on the Tonight Show (video here), referring to Rove as: "a beady-eyed character assassin" and, in reference to the smear that Wilson got the job through his wife, he noted: "because everybody knows that real men don't get jobs from their wives...they get them from their fathers." But, he says, Rove won't be fired b/c we're fixated on the fact that "Jude Law is banging the Nanny." Red meat comedy for progressives this is. (video via Crooks and Liars)
