[Friday night on his HBO show, Bill Maher tried to discredit critics of President Barack Obama, including those concerned about his talk to school children, by smearing them as racists – before he pointed to a Drudge Report headline, “POLL HELL: OBAMA NEGS RISE,” as somehow an example of the ways “some of the right-wingers are always dropping subliminally racist messages.”
Maher first took up Congressman Joe Wilson's “you lie” shout at Obama: “To heckle a President, to shout in the middle of a speech, would he have done that if it was a white President? I don't think so. I think this is a southern guy who thinks 'I can do whatever I want when it's a black guy speaking.'”

This game is getting old with the likes of Mahr, Olbermann et.al. These guys have no other argument to fall back on. They are merely stoking the coals with the hopes of igniting a fire of hatred that they will be able to talk about.
Obama has let them down and they must now resort to creating their own discussion topics out of the blue.
The Drudge Report is simply a news story clearing house of sorts. Sure they use some teaser headlines just like ATS. It is up to the informed and educated reader to actually link to the story from the separate news source. Duh!!

i think the problem you have is that documents and video capturing republicans in what they say, are played back again for the general audience. the old proverb...i believed he was an idiot, until he opened his mouth and proved it.
congressional representative JOE WILSON is a proud member of the "sons of confederate veterans"...lets have alook at one the affiliations that he is so proud of:
go to the "gallery" section for pictures of their "youth camp"...notice anything strange? hhhmmm.....in all the pictures, there are ONLY WHITE PEOPLE THERE....now why wouldn't there be black people there to HOLD UP THE FINE TRADITION OF THE CONFEDERCY??? could it be that blacks don't have any money for this?...could it be that blacks were not part of the south??? could it be that blacks live too far away???...hhhmm...i just can't put my finger on it.

Lemon announced: “I was watching Real Talk, Real Time with Bill Maher and I was like 'finally someone's talking about this, finally someone is talking about this.'”
