Political Genius Affleck Shows Just How Much He Knows on Bill Maher's Show
Affleck went on to call DeLay a “criminal.” After Mr. Sammon asserted that the left had lost their poster boy after DeLay resigned, Affleck answered, "Tom DeLay personally gerrymandered that district so severely that it looks like a map of Italy....There won't be a Democrat elected in that seat for a thousand years. You can't say he's the poster boy for the left. He happens to be an incredibly powerful Republican who is a criminal and now you blame Democrats for pointing it out!" Maher nodded in agreement. Actually DeLay's redistricting gave away Republican seats to less Republican districts so Republicans could win there - but hey! It's Affleck - so what if he doesn't get his political facts right - my grandma thinks he's just hunky dory and has vowed to suffer through any sequels to "Gigli" and "Jersey Girl" or any other crappy movie Ben plans to make.
