38. Bill Maher repeatedly asked Arianna if there was any Republican she could support
for a long time she didn't answer with a name and finally said, "I don't know enough about Jon Huntsman".

that's it. at least that's all i heard.

Maher was saying, "Obama's got us, right?" and she didn't really have much of a response to say he didn't except perhaps there's something we don't know.

To me, the exchange really didn't amount to much.

What's more important to me is that in this thread we were told something about what she said and in reality, that wasn't what she said at all.

It's that thing that I think is worth talking about.

If someone is saying they are angry at her because they think she lied to them, don't lie to me at the same time about what she said.
