Bill Maher on what the Democrats need to do to win today

Bill Maher is one of my favorite TV personalities. Me being very frugal (okay, cheap), I haven't subscribed to HBO since Roger Moore was James Bond and Sheena Easton was the hottest thing around (she still is, isn't she?).

However, I really am contemplating subscribing, only for Bill Maher's Real Time TV show.

Here are his points. Read the full article at the Jump.

1) When they say, "Democrats will raise taxes," you say, "We have to, because some asshole spent all the money in the world cutting Paris Hilton's taxes and not killing Osama bin Laden."

2) When they say, "The terrorists want the Democrats to win," you say, "Are you insane? George Bush has been a terrorist's wet dream, and nonpartisan commissions have confirmed that he's a recruiter's dream: theirs, not ours. And, he has exhausted our military without coming away with a win, the worst of both worlds."

3) When they say, "Cut and Run" or "Defeatocrat," you say, "Bush lost the war -- period."

4) When they say that actual combat veterans like John Kerry are "denigrating" the troops, you say, "You're completely full of shit."

So when they say, "Democrats are obstructionists," you say, "You're welcome." Because with a bad administration that has bad ideas, obstruction is a good thing, just as it's a good thing to obstruct a drunk from getting his car keys.

Maher has a way of speaking truth in a humorous, yet enlightening, way. Bravo, Bill!
