During his New Rules segment this Friday night, Real Time's Bill Maher had some advice for politicians who are trying to appeal to a new generation of voters... put down the guns and quit making a fool of yourself doing photo-ops pretending you're a hunter and embrace legalizing marijuana.
I don't think we're ever going to get most politicians to quit pandering to hunters, or the NRA for that matter any time soon, especially Republican politicians. I agree it's past time to legalize pot. We spend way too much money locking people up for non-violent drug offenses, but for the Republicans who wanted this "war on drugs" I'm sure that's a feature and not a bug.
Maher hoped we might see Democrats "evolve" on the issue as well and suggested that Hillary Clinton "say goodbye to the pantsuit and welcome back to stoner Hillary."
