Bill Maher took a few shots at the religious right and Focus on the Family during his New Rules segment on Real Time this Friday evening and had this question for them: “If you’re doing God’s work and God is perfect, how come you’re always wrong?

Right-wing bullies have been blowing up the Internet the past day or so with their blowhard-ish accusations that Obama campaign spokesperson Stephanie Cutter has somehow minimized the Libya attacks and deaths of four Americans by pointing to the obvious (and annoying) politicization that has taken place over the weeks since the attacks.Here, for the record is exactly what Cutter said in her interview:"Had we had any different information, we would have put it out.

It's a big part of their stump speech, and it's reckless and irresponsible."
