Everything Republicans say can't or won't work, California is making work. And everything conservatives claim will unravel the fabric of our society has only made California stronger. And all we had to do to accomplish that was vote out every single Republican.
In 2002, "Late Show with David Letterman" won the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series. It was a particularly deserved win: The Primetime Emmy award honors television programming that aired the prior June through May, which would include Letterman's touching and poignant return after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It was Letterman's sixth win (for perspective, Letterman's hero, Johnny Carson, only won one Emmy for "The Tonight Show") and it would mark the last time anyone other than Jon Stewart has won the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series.
Why not provide an opportunity for Nugent to demonstrate his humanitarian side? In other words, why not turn lemons into lemonade (or perhaps more aptly, feral hog entrails into pulled pork sandwiches)?
We seemed to have lost our viewing attention span. What's happened to us? How do folks without a DVR cope?
I've come to realize over the past few years that real opportunities are few and far between. No matter what the situation, they all require one simple thing: you need to see them when they come.
In the worldview of the religious, there is a theological escape-hatch that will engage so as to avoid the most catastrophic of predicaments.
Now, I'm a big fan of Jim Wallis and I appreciate that he moved the conversation away from Maher's attempted divisiveness and back to caring for the poor and immigration reform in this country. At the same time, I think the question Bill Maher was raising is an important one, too.

Ron Reagan and Erick Erickson debate judicial matters after the DOMA and VRA decisions. But there's a larger subtext -- is Obama's center-left country and Roberts's hard-right Court moving toward a collision? Then, Obama tries to cool off the planet and the frenzy over Snowden.
Talk about 'Beyond Right & Left' -- when Franken-Rove clash with Scahill-Beck over the NSA program, knee-jerkers are confused. So Huffington & Matalin debate domestic snooping not by Hoover against protestors in the '60s but by Obama after 9/11 and Boston. Is Snowden an Ellsberg or Manning?
After I got past the inside baseball, I started thinking about the broader ramifications of these two appointments for American women's advancement into political leadership.
Thinking and smoking. Smoking and thinking. Thinking, smoking, and pacing the floor of her apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side. This is how we see the gifted academic and profound socio-political philosopher, Hannah Arendt, prepare to write.
What is it that makes people capable of hacking another human being to death on a peaceful street? It is a question that demands asking after last wee...
I agree with about 98 percent of the political opinions Bill Maher regularly presents on his HBO television show Real Time With Bill Maher The man can be both hilariously funny and dead-on brilliant. But there are three things about him that drive me up the wall.
By migrating illegally, Ted Nugent is sticking it to Mexico by giving them a taste of their own medicine. Let's see how the Mexicans like it when Ted Nugent tunnels in under the border!
It's about time Bill Maher responded to Wayne Brady. Not because he owes Brady any sort of explanation or apology for his previous jokes about Brady supposedly lacking black male fortitude.
