Largest Donor to Obama Super PAC Calls Mormonism a ‘Cult’ | The Weekly Standard.

Okay, so Bill Maher gave $1 million to the Obama Super PAC. It takes cult power to get anyone to donate that kind of money to anything, and Maher appears to be a charter member of the cult of Obama. And refusing to accept that donations to the Mormon church are charity is an indictment of charity in general. Most charities are based on or affiliated with religious groups. Why single out Mormons? Why not attack Catholics or any other religious group that has a charitable program? And how would Maher know that Obama is well-endowed or is that just his fantasy? I sense some longing there.

Bill Maher Flushes a Million Dollars Down the Toilet

Bill Maher donates a million dollars to Obama ‘super PAC’ – latimes.com.

On Thursday, Maher told his audience that the million dollars he was donating was “the wisest investment I think I could make.”

Oh, really. A lot of people who will never make a million dollars over their lifetime would probably disagree. He’s certainly living up to the “CrazyStupid” part of his comedy show. If he has enough money lying around that he can simply toss a million of it away, that says a lot more about his financial priorities than his politics. A fool and his money…
