At the conclusion of his live Yahoo comedy special, Maher announced his donation to Priorities USA Action, a pro-Obama SuperPAC. Maher stated:

For all the rich liberals out there, if Bill Maher can do it, you can do it too… I am doing this not just for a better nation but to protect what money I have left… Obama could lose. This is America, remember. We only get two parties and half the country is fucking nuts.

After the show, Maher tweeted that the announcement had been a surprise to Yahoo!, which broadcast the stand-up performance on its website.

Priorities USA Action bills itself as an “organization dedicated to mobilizing Americans to preserve, protect and promote the middle class, and to ensure opportunity and freedom for the next generation.”

I’m a little conflicted with his donation.
On one hand I’m glad to see that the Republicans aren’t the only ones receiving this kind of support, but, on the other hand, aren’t these large donations to SuperPACs one of the huge problems in this election cycle?

But a million dollars is a drop in the bucket compared to what the Koch Bros and the Republicans are dumping into their super PACs.
