Watch Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann Desperately Try to Get Through to GOP Voter "In a Bubble"

 After the GOP voters who cheered at execution and the death of a hypothetical uninsured man in recent debates, liberals have been despairing about even moderate Republicans ever getting their message through to them. Even worse than this apparent lack of empathy is a demonstrated aversion to facts among most of the eight GOP candidates.

Last night on his show, Bill Maher demonstrated this imperviousness quite literally, by enlisting guest Keith Olbermann to help him try to use facts to get through toa "typical GOP voter" who was, in fact, sitting in a plastic bubble.

Surreal and odd, yes, but no more so than our current fact-free political conversation on the right. Watch the video below, courtesy of Mediaite and HBO.
