I’m afraid, dear progressive friends, Mr Maher is 110% correct

I see nearly every week in the comedy called progressive plans for energy sources in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Progressives, it seems, eschew cooperation with business and attorneys and, as a result, never get anything respectable done. They are, as I’ve sometimes remarked, in practice, liberal climate deniers, because they rate the survival of their collective political power more important than that of civilization.

    Um… what? Progressives have no political power. Who is a nationally-known progressive besides Bernie and a few others? I know zero progressives who are climate deniers. Who the heck are you talking about?
