Speaking Truth To Stupid

Urging us to "never underestimate the ability of a tiny fringe group
of losers to ruin everything," Bill Maher looks at the inexplicable
growth of the nutjob "birther" movement, and the damage it could do. Stop laughing, in other words, and think Swift Boat.

"That's why it's so important that we the few, the proud, the
reality-based attack this stuff before it has a chance to fester and
spread. This isn't a case of Democrats versus Republicans. It's
sentient beings versus the lizard people."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
