Republicans have been trying to make Maher as a liberal poster boy to counter the Limbaugh attacks. It hasn't really stuck. But since he (very publicly) donated $1 million to Priorities USA, the GOP has some fresh ammunition. Maher's donation was about half of the $2 million that the super PAC raised in the month of February - a total that speaks as much about the group's limp fundraising as Maher's influence within the party.
It's unlikely Maher will rise to the villain role among conservatives as Limbaugh is to liberals, but there's little doubt that Democrats would like to see a deeper array of donors to the super PAC to dilute Maher's influence.
