Maher: 2012 Election Win-Win: If Obama Wins, America Wins And If It's Romney, Comedy Wins


Bill Maher recapped the 2012 presidential election cycle, from the Supreme Court's Citizen United decision, to the Republican primary race and the GOP clown car that Mitt Romney had to run against, to the pick of Ayn Rand fan-boy Paul Ryan as the vice presidential nominee, to the conventions and Clint Eastwood debating an empty chair and last but not least, the debates and Mitt Romney's late attempt to pivot back to the center.

Maher wrapped up his segment with this:

MAHER: So that's it. That's the election. It is your choice America, because for me it is a win-win. If it’s Obama, America wins, and if it’s Romney, comedy wins.
