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.

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…

Super PAC Man

Senior Obama campaign officials defend president’s embrace of super PAC | The Ticket – Yahoo! News.
