Though the skeptical community may have some problems with some things that Maher says, he looks to have nailed this:

Maher revisits a 2008 letter sent out by Focus on the Family detailing the horrors that would befall the nation if Barack Obama won the Presidency. As Maher points out, not a single one of the group's 34 dire predictions came to pass: school children still say the Pledge of Allegiance and the government has not seized everyone's guns.

Maher admits that Focus in the Family is in the business of scaring "rubes" into giving them money, so the truth is not their highest priority. "But 0 for 34?" he asks in disbelief. Watch Maher eviscerate the right-wing group below.

That's how you get these bastards: Keep track of what they say and do over the years. They'll trip up eventually. David Barton is an example of that, thanks in large part to Chris Rodda.

What brought that on? this. Original posting here.

Another example of this guy's lunacy here.
