Oh no he didn't!

And what did Cher say or do to deserve the “honor?" On Bill’s video she told a reporter that “I just don’t understand how anyone would want to be a Republican. I just can’t figure it. I don’t understand.” If you’re poor, if you’re any kind of minority – gay, black, Latino, anything. If you’re not a rich – I don’t know. If you’re not a rich born-again-Christian, I don’t get it.”

Bill said that “we like Cher” because she does good things and “she seems like a nice person.” Bill snickered while he “broke it gently” to Cher that “there are good people in both parties who love their country like you do. Don’t be a pinhead. Be independent, LIKE ME.” (Cue the blurting of the coffee on the TV!). Course Bill edited the video so Cher’s preceding sentence was cut: “You know what? I have so – I try to be charitable and there are some really good Republicans..” So who is really the “pinhead” here?

Can you help us out?
