Bill Maher replies

Thanks to Dan (in the comments section of my earlier item) for pointing me to Bill Maher's reply to Congressman Bachus. He's right on the money:

I'm not a congressman, I'm a comedian. There's nothing I can really do to help or hurt our troops (although anyone who's watched my shows or read my books in the last twelve years knows I'm a pretty ardent supporter of the military). But a congressman, there's someone who can actually DO SOMETHING to help our troops. In fact, a case could be made that it's a lot more treasonous for someone in his position to be wasting his time yelling at a comedian.
