Why did Michael Steele go on Bill Maher’s show Friday night, when Maher so viciously attacks Republican women?

And why, when he was there, during the kind of high-minded discussion of misogyny you might expect there, did Steele not bother to defend the Virginia ultrasound bill against Maher’s mischaracterization? 

But I return to the main question. Why, former chairman of the RNC, would you go on that show? 

Would Republican men please stop credentialing that show?
