Tanya’s Comment: I think this is a great idea! Bill Maher is a well-known TV personality who has strong political views and a very “in your face” presence, so any political candidate he targets on his show will be under a very harsh spotlight. It will be interesting to see what impact this makes on the coming elections. If it does make an impact, hopefully Bill Maher, as well as others in the media, will continue to do this.
