I'm not a fan of Maher's anti-vaccine statements, but there is an entire level of difference between being outspoken about one's views vs. trying to enforce one's views on the populace via government.
Regardless, if Santorum won the nomination, I doubt I could call myself a Republican any more.
Romney is given a 79.9% chance.
If you think Santorum is the frontrunner, the guy with the best chance of winning the nomination, you can probably make some money on that.
What Would Spidey Do?
The whole discussion is kind of silly though - On the one hand, Maher does say lots of batshit stuff, usually in an intentionally rude way. On the other hand, he is a comedian with no real affiliation with Obama. No one's going to remember this tomorrow, let alone in November, unless the PAC makes an offensive ad.
Still, it's a more pertinent and interesting discussion than the gold standard, so it's got that going for it in this thread today.
Maher's religion comments are probably going to be the biggest liability for anyone linked to him. But it's only likely to come up if the candidate is losing badly and gets desperate (or is Rick Santorum), so it's not likely to be a factor.
I guess the remaining 12% percent or so remaining is mostly for none of the above? Can't imagine them giving Gingrich or Paul much of anything.
