Actually I didn't write this with Bill Maher in mind, but he is one of the most recent targets of the tactic it describes. Playing bait-and-switch with faux outrage is one of the right's favorite games -- just ask the Edwards bloggers, or John Kerry, or Arianna Huffington, for that matter. (Hell, I've been through it a time or two myself.)

Next week, it'll undoubtedly be somebody else's turn -- because they really don't ever give up.
