    C'mon Mike,

    You don't REALLY expect fair treatment from HBO do you? The network that hosts hate-master Bill Maher?

    At least he has accomplished one thing while in the Senate! He talked to an executive at HBO!

    To quote Jason Chaffetz, "Get over it."

    Complaining that the news media treats conservatives unfairly is as surprising as discovering that there is unpleasant stuff in cesspools.

    Sadly, many people believe all the "news" that the lame stream media reports, and even worse, many people believe stuff that is presented as comedy or entertainment is actually valid news. And, they vote. (Usually Democrat...)

    Talk about thin-skinned. Maybe some of the facts were messed up some, but the overall substance seems correct. And whining about it will only draw attention to the show.

    Mr. Lee has lots of baggage, he should hope that the next four years go by slowly. I for one will not forget his house fiasco and how JP Morgan came to his rescue.

    Uh, this is a FICTIONAL show. It is not the news. It has fictional characters and fictional lines.

    The line lasted 4 seconds, but now that Mike has drawn attention to it (and the show), he just sounds like he is whining. Get a backbone, Mike. Politics are ugly. (I sure hope you never tell a half truth. That would be real - not fictional btw).

    If Sen. Mike Lee flipped over this episode....

    I can hardly WAIT for the episode of the good Senator "Fiscally Respnsible" depicting his house being foreclosed on.

    A lot of stupid people in this forum. @LDS Liberal, his house was not foreclosed on, it was legally sold through an agreement with the bank. @CHS85 Senator Lee has accomplished more than most Freshman senators ever have. The guys is setting records. Just because you don't know about his accomplishments does not mean they didn't happen.
