Bill Maher: We Need a Progressive Party

It takes a nighttime cable talk show host to say what a slew of talking head pundits, well-meaning bloggers, and witless politicians cannot bring themselves to say: Obama is no "socialist," he's not even a liberal. The Democrats are a center-right party, and the GOP have degenerated into a bunch of right-wing, flat-earth loonies. There is no political party that calls for cuts to defense, or tax hikes for the rich.

Maher's riff on Obama and the Democrats starts about 2:00 minutes into the video.
