Is Bush evil? (video)

In his "New Rules" segment Maher spins off into an exploration of evil and how it gets done. When you're down and you don't think anybody on TV gets it, this particular segment should do the trick [VIDEO]:

Maher: Is George Bush purely evil? Of course not, and that's what's so evil about him.
Maher: "Evil is a chain. Did anyone person do N.O. it's a chain. People vote for a corrupt leader. A corrupt leader puts unqualified cronies in high places and when those cronies f--k up. Evil gets done."
