From this Friday's The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN, Real Time's Bill Maher stopped by and discussed everything from his campaign to "flip a district" and his million dollar donation to one of President Obama's PACs, to whether he'd ever consider running for office himself, to pot legalization.

He managed to get in a few whacks at current crop of potential Republican presidential nominees for 2016 and while I agree with him that we're in for another clown show this time around, I'd just say be careful what you wish for. We won't be laughing if one of these wingnuts actually gets elected.

Bill Maher Slams Ted Cruz and Rand Paul By Labeling Them The Insane Clown Posse:

Bill Maher was on CNN today, and when asked who he would like to see run for president in 2016, he slammed Ted Cruz and Rand Paul by labeling them the insane clown posse.

When Jake Tapper asked Maher who he would like to see run for president in 2016, he answered,

Well, you know for my own selfish reasons, I would like to see Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and the rest of the insane clown posse run, and I’m sure there will be some people on the right who are you know great fodder for us, but I’m a patriot first, I’d like to think,so I want the most qualified people.

I don’t know who that is anymore on the right. I mean there was Chris Christie on the right. He was going to be the guy to bridge, no pun intended, the gap between you know, the crazies and the potty trained Republicans, but he doesn’t look like he is going anywhere anymore, so I don’t even know who to root for on the Republican side. On the Democratic side we all know that it is going to be Hillary, so what are we even talking about that for?

If the early rumblings are any indication, the Republican field is going to be chock full of crazies. With all due respect to the Juggalos out there, the Insane Clown Posse is the perfect name for the potential Republican field. Read on...
