Bill Maher:The GOP is Milhouse's father (Simpsons reference)

Bill Maher has a readable editorial in the LATimes. His main gist: Everyone recognizes that the Republicans are crazy mad, but the things they're mad about seem so detached from America's problems that their emotion is even less appealing.

Oh, and this,
Look, I get it, "real America." After an eight-year run of controlling the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court, this latest election has you feeling like a rejected husband. You've come home to find your things out on the front lawn -- or at least more things than you usually keep out on the front lawn. You're not ready to let go, but the country you love is moving on. And now you want to call it a whore and key its car.

That's what you are, the bitter divorced guy whose country has left him -- obsessing over it, haranguing it, blubbering one minute about how much you love it and vowing the next that if you cannot have it, nobody will.

But it's been almost 100 days, and your country is not coming back to you. She's found somebody new.
