Leave it to Bill Maher to use Michael Jackson as a metaphor for the United States. In the New Rules segment of the July 17th episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, he posits (yes, posits) that the same problems that ailed (and killed) MJ, currently ail the USA. Yeah, it's got the usual BS and some of the jokes fall a little flat, but it's definitely worth a watch because I think it weirdly makes you want to do something other than rubberneck the car crash of the USA (if you believe that that is the way the country is going - I'm not sure personally). The commentary starts at the two minute mark.
