Maher vs. O'Donnell, round two
Bill Maher is at it again. For a second-straight week, the host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" has aired a damaging video clip of Tea Party darling Christine O'Donnell from his "Politically Incorrect" archives.
The first clip came two weekends ago in which the Delaware senatorial GOP candidate talked about her dabbling in witchcraft. It quickly went viral and drew national attention.
The most recent clip features O'Donnell talking about evolution. Here's the exchange:
O'Donnell: You know what evolution, evolution is a myth. Even Darwin himself...
Maher: Evolution is a myth? Have you ever looked at a monkey?
O'Donnell: Then why aren't they, why aren't monkeys still evolving into humans?
Panelist John Fugelsang: It takes a long time.
Film critic Roger Ebert got in on the discussion when he posted the following on his Twitter account: "Dear Christine O'Donnell, If this doesn't convince you about the Theory of Evolution, nothing will. http://j.mp/dA1Had"
Maher has said he will continue to air clips from his archives (he says she was on his show more than two dozen times) until she agrees to come on his show again.
Do you think O'Donnell should refrain from appearing on his show or should she give in before more damaging clips surface?
