The stars of The Rachel Maddow Show and Real Time with Bill Maher converged on Maher's show last week, and on Tuesday, Maddow returned the favor. Now, given that I'm a big fan of both, posting the video was a no brainer. But considering that they're talking about a topic near and dear to my heart--the conservative alternate reality machine--I absolutely couldn't resist.
The machine was most effective in the early days after 9/11, and Karl Rove had that thing running 'round the clock for a good many years. At first, it could fool anyone. As the years went by, fewer and fewer were fooled. They were pretty much down to the hard-boiled conservative base there for a while. But somebody must've oiled the machine and changed out a few parts, because lots of people are believing outright falsehoods about the health care reform proposals. But watch the video, Rachel and Bill do a good enough job explaining. . .
