A new Hallmark Card slogan from the Left's classiest act.  Watch as Maher's panel (Melissa Harris-Perry, Rick Lazio, and Larry King) dump on Sarah Palin -- presumably over this painful gaffe -- leading our intrepid host to extend a rhetorical middle finger to the country that has offered him fame and fortune.  Proof that Maher's observation may at least be partially accurate?  His studio audience's reaction:

This isn't the first time Maher has explored the 'Americans-are-stupid-so-they-might-elect-Palin' trope.  Last time, at least, he avoided profanity.
