Bill Maher went after the left over NSA spying on Friday night; specifically, liberals who have refused to criticize surveillance under President Obama as opposed to, you know, when George Bush did it. Maher said, “If this was happening under Bush, liberals would be apoplectic. I’m sorry, but liberals are just sometimes useless Obama hacks without a shred of intellectual honesty.”
Congresswoman Donna Edwards jumped in to make clear she’s very apoplectic, saying Congress needs to set more limits on the NSA’s dragnet and arguing for more privacy advocates who can take on the government in the name of individual liberties.
Ron Suskind added that for years, the government kept sneering at critics and asking where their proof is, and so the one great thing Snowden did was provide the proof.
