Video - HBO's Bill Maher jabs at Gannon, Bush & Rove - VERY FUNNY!
Video - HBO's Bill Maher jabs at Gannon, Bush & Rove - 2/18 @ 11PM ET

Bill's guests are Robin Williams, Leslie Stahl (60 Minutes), Democratic Senator Joe Biden, Republican Ex-HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson and actor Don Cheadle.

Robin Williams and jokes about Jeff "Gannon" shouldn't be allowed on the same comedy show.

1. Saw the show. Had some very funny moments, but their comments on
Edited on Sat Feb-19-05 05:38 PM by BrklynLiberal
torture and the "natural inferiority" of women in science and math were off-putting to say the least. They were condoning the torture, without saying that the vast majority of those who were tortured at Abu Gharib were NOT terrorists.
In addition,no one on the panel cared to mention the studies that have been done, showing the discrimination in hiring and promoting women, both in business and the academic arena in scientific and mathematical areas. Women and men graduate college in equal numbers with degrees in math and science.
That is why that woman left that lecture at Harvard. She had done some of those studies.

2. I edited that part out.
That part of the conversation didn't seem relevant or funny to me.

7. Thanks so much for posting that link
I really needed that!
I don't have cable and try to watch as little TV as possible. But, this reminds me of some of the really wonderful things I miss.

I love Bill Maher and John Stewart.

Thanks,
Attie

10. Maher was an ass for a few minutes,
but most of it was hilarious. Robin Williams didn't let him get away with much.
