KOPPEL: The bifurcation is really extreme. I mean, the left is further left and the right is further right.
MAHER: The left is not further left. The left is further right. See, this is the problem that the media makes. The left is not further left. The Republicans keep staking out this further and further ground to the right, and then demanding that the Democrats meet them in the center. Except it’s not the center anymore. It’s the center right. I mean, that’s what Obama is. Obama–to call him a socialist? He is not even a liberal.
