In one of the GOP Presidential debates the number of prisoners who had been put to death in Texas drew applause from the audience. In a subsequent debate, the issue of the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was being discussed and, during a short video of a Marine talking about being openly gay, two members of that audience booed.
Some of you may remember that I told you in Friday's MULLINGS that I was going to be on Bill Maher's HBO program, "Real Time." I said that I was going to be on with, among other people, Keith Olbermann.
If lying is sufficient reason to expel a member (like Anthony Weiner), then the halls of Congress may soon be vacant of all but the janitorial crew who empty the trash and mop the floors at night.
What if the same had been said by a conservative commentator about Clinton polling behind Obama during the 2008 election?
Another brilliant bit of fresh, fact-based insight from Bill Maher.

Over the last few centuries, our society has come to believe that there exists a fundamental incompatibility between faith and science.
The same people who had blamed Sarah Palin for the massacre at the Tucson Safeway and then taunted her for her "silence" were enraged when she responded.
The liberal wizards, working their wonders at The New York Times and its clearinghouses in the major networks, cannot even dupe the American people with an absurd conspiracy theory anymore.
But never underestimate the ability of some people to go too far, where talent and imagination are rejected for sophistry and shock. Take the ad geniuses for Doritos and Pepsi Max, who posted on YouTube some entrants in their "Crash the Super Bowl" ad contest.
Last week, President Barack Obama was backpedaling like a circus unicycle rider, after his compromise on extending Bush-era tax cuts for the country's top 2 percent of income earners.
Liberals (or Progressives, if you prefer) have been raging at President Obama for months.
Here’s what I scribbled down as my bitter and clingy list of Thanksgiving gracias:
