Responding to his audience groaning over a zinger at Obama's expense, Bill Maher bottom lines it:
"We've got to be loyal to what we believe, not the people."
Indeed. One can be supportive of an administration and it's goals while still being critical of it when it missteps. In fact, it is crucial that we do so, since we need credible critics, and the GOP bloggers have pretty much given up on themselves filling that role with their ficus on minutia like the birth certificate, and teleprompter issues.
