Bill Maher Donates $1M to Pro-Obama Super PAC

by at . Comments

Comedian Bill Maher announced during a comedy special Thursday night that he would donate $1 million to the pro-Obama Priorities USA Action Super PAC.

The host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher dropped the (money) bomb at the end of "CrazyStupidPolitics," streamed live on Yahoo. He said the following:

"I would like tonight to announce a donation to the Obama super PAC, which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name Priority [sic] USA Action."

"I know, it was named by Borat," Maher said. "But tonight, I would like to give that PAC one million dollars," prompting cheers from the audience.

The donation, manifested onstage in the form of one of those oversized checks, provides a significant boost to the pro-Obama Super PAC's coffers.

The group raised less than $59,000 in the month of January and $4.4 million overall ... not even that much more than the Colbert Super PAC really.

Super PACs can raise unlimited amounts of cash to support political causes, but are not permitted to coordinate their activities with candidates they favor.

Bill Maher said that a 2012 Obama victory was "worth a million dollars" and described the donation asĀ  "the wisest investment I think I could make."

He encouraged other wealthy donors to give to the group as well.

@Chely Talk about somebody who cannot devise a credible argument! You are the Supreme Queen of that gig! Your ass is so frickin' loose 'n liberal it's a wonder you can hold a fart after a fajita dinner with an order of charro beans on the side! No real arguments against Obama health care? Jesus! Are ya serious!?! Folks are waking up to the reality their insurance company is going to pass along the added expense forced on them by the Govt. and we will have more taxes heaped on us to pay for you freeloaders not to mention the illegals who will get the freebies from this! We can't afford this you stupid b*t*ch! Oh well, for folks like you who don't pay taxes it just doesn't sink in. By the way, you're not exactly the bearer of facts to prove your argument either. You just squawk lamely about things you obviously know nothing about. I read this Sneakerbean's comments prior to yours. That blogger makes very good sense and they sound like they've got something YOU don't...brains!

sneakerbean the only reason ppl may have a vendetta against u is beacuse u cannot articulate one argument with out cutting ppl dwn. Its always lib turd or wipe off the lib drool. When u say things like that they sound like they are str8 from the fox propaganda machine. And about raising the debt celling i dont kno if ur aware but its been done before. A hell of a lot of times but for some reason we are only hearing about it now. We didnt when bush or clinton or reagan did it but now its the most important thing in this century. U wana make a good case then show real facts and stop degrading ppl for nt agreeing wit u. This is the major fuking problem with the repub party! Mayb if they had a great argument against health care instead of sayin obama is gona take grandma to the death pannels some ppl may actually agree with them. But once i hear a educated person say something like that their words mean shit to me.

@Duh....I can tell by your comments you were overwhelmed by my brilliant prose. What a lame response you had to offer! I know, I know--you suddenly realized after reading it all that you were in over your head. Hey...it happens, especially to a dimwit like you! And please, spare me the punctuation critique. For someone so obsessed with grammar and punctuation? Your writing style lacks substance, depth and imagination. It sounds very sophomoric, however, the mere mention of punctuation gives YOU away! Let me suggest you pay more attention to "content" because that's what kickin' your a** in this whole written debate going back 'n forth between us. Once again the "hahahahahahahaha's" are right back at ya! Score: Sneakerbean 4, Duh 0.

Obama reign is almost over, maher can waste his money all he wants. Gasoline prices are skyrocketing and all the "SuperPac" around will not make up for the chaotic mess Obama has created. Is it unreasonable to even consider him in November? . @ Duh- did I hear you right? Did you say you gave "Rim Jobs" and would do this for Free if I furnished Mountain Dew? Wow! I'm guessing you could suck shit thru a straw as well? Count me in!

@Duh...Yes, thanks for confirming what I already knew...I AM cute! My Victoria's Secret runway model girlfriend (several cuts above Ann Coultier for sure) whispers that to me all the time! I know my politics like you NEVER could because you merely skim the liberal rags picking up vague, unproven talking points and spread them about like you are SUCH a Beltway insider! Sorry, it won't work...the "duhhhhhhhh" drool just seeps out your nasty orifice when you spew your liberal rant! Ewwww! How unattractive! Then once again we're all reminded of how very clueless you are! The laugh is and always will be on pathetic, uncared about and sadly warped little YOU! Ha!

Bwahahahahaha! Anyone who comments here and thinks another person has a "personal vendetta" against them is so cute!! It's so adorable that you think anyone cares about you. I have no idea who you are nor do I care if Newt Gingrich just farted in your mouth during a rim job or if you just choked on a rogue Funyon because you didn't let the bubbles from your freshly cracked diet mountain dew settle before you guzzled it like it was Anne Coultiers vaginal seepage. You people are so silly. Thanks for the good giggle. I needed that.

@67 reasons/Duh...you proved my point succinctly! Thanks for that,,again--soooooooooooooooo obvious, ha! Oh, and using past tense..."was"..does that mean you are no longer breathing, no longer 67 or no longer a Republican? Specifics, please!
