Bill Maher: New Rule for Obama: Don't Get Caught Checking Out Clinton's *ss

An important tip for Barack Obama from Bill Maher on November 2nd's Real Time with Bill Maher.
When you're supposed to be taking off the gloves and really letting your opponent have it, don't get caught checking out her ass.
Maybe she was wearing an American flag pin on her butt. See the picture above. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Bill also skewered the Jeno's pizza recall, and based on my experience with their cardboard-like pizza, I agree with him.
You don’t have to recall things that would make people sick anyway. General Mills has recalled five million Jeno’s frozen pizzas because they might be contaminated with E. coli. Couldn’t they just as easily say they’re recalling five million strains of E. coli because they might be contaminated with Jeno’s pizza? I mean, what’s the difference? One gives you stomach cramps and diarrhea, and the other is E. coli!
Finally, Bill addressed the uber-rich in America, and how people like Warren Buffett, third richest man in the world, can pay lower taxes than his secretary who makes 60K a year (at least Buffett has the decency to actually say it's wrong!).

If you’re living hand-to-mouth, and still buying into the con that the big threats to America are socialized medicine, Mexican immigrants and tax increases, then you’re not being kept down by the rich. You’re being kept down by you.

In America, it’s not the haves and have-nots. It’s the haves and the been-hads. If you, the citizen, deliberately vote for someone who won’t give you health care over someone you will, you need to have your head examined. Except you can’t afford to have your head examined.

Please remember that if you hear the new radio ad from Rudy Giuliani, who says his chances of surviving prostate cancer in America were 82%, whereas, in England, under “socialized medicine,” his chances would have been 44%. Numbers that, like the cancer, were pulled directly out of Rudy’s ass.

Now, I know socialized medicine sounds like Stalin himself is going to come over to your house and perform a forced sterilization. But, really all it is, is universal health care. Which means everybody – not just the rich – gets to see a doctor when their erection lasts longer than 72 hours.
Way to go, Bill. The problem is, as we know from Michael Moore's film Sicko, every time someone uses the term "socialized" medicine we immediately think of communism.

But here's a stat that should make anyone wake up. Canada had a higher infant mortality rate than the U.S. before instituing universal health care. Now their rate is lower. Isn't infant mortality, our children, something all of us should want to reduce?

Oh, wait, I forgot, this is the country that can't even pass SCHIP.
