Last Friday, Bill Maher said on his HBO Real Time program that he was going to release a new video of Delaware right-wing GOP Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell every week until she agreed to come onto his show.
In light of O'Donnell's pledge this week not to do any more national news, I think we're in for a full election season of videos, and I for one couldn't be happier.
Last week, Maher released the now famous video of O'Donnell announcing that she had been involved "into" witchcraft when she was younger and presumably stupider.
This week? Who knows. The live airing of Maher's show begins, as I write this, in one hour. What video will he air tonight? O'Donnell claiming her mind is controlled by aliens? O'Donnell speaking in tongues? O'Donnell making her horse co-consul of Rome?
And when are we going to give Maher a prize? A Pulitzer, an Emmy – something? Maher might just be the Tina Fey of this election season.
UPDATE: And here it is.
