Bill Maher tonight mentioned stolen elections ... twice
and the panel was on fire. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasently surprised. The only thing I had a bit of a problem with was that they didn't mention the press playing a role in the bar fight.

2. it's usually a good show when Sullivan is on........
although I was wishing Arianna had been on the panel instead of the satellite.

He also talked about the voting situation when Robin Williams was on......

As usual, I thought it was a great show. I think Maher has really been hitting home runs lately, especially on his closing statements. Tonight's was no exception. He talked about the flag waving Americans who just blindly think America is "still #1" when we're way down on the list as far as infant mortality, freedom of the press, healthcare, etc.... How we're indebted to other countries, even Mexico. How we're not going to be the country to patent new stem cell research findings if we continue to let ignorance get in the way.

You have to hear the whole thing. I highly recommend it.

5. You weren't the last to know - I was clueless about it as well
Ditto on the medication. Glad it's working for him. Science is a wonderful thing!

6. Fun to watch 2 repubs on the panel telling people to vote dem!
Usually I have a hard time watching Maher's show when he has repubs on.

7. No HBO in Canada unfortunately
so I'm left to search clips on youtube! I will say though, his "new rules" segments usually leave me giddy.

12. I think he'd be happy if fiscally conservative repubs who weren't all crooked
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 08:42 AM by mucifer
won all the races. But, since the world is such a mess he wants the dems to win. We here in Chicago can see that one party systems don't work, even if the one party is dem. However, I'm glad all the Chicago dems are gonna win so I can volunteer for Seals and Duckworth.

10. what did sully have to say?
He's been a huge fan of the invasion since before it started. Is he starting to have second thought?

15. He is clearly opposing repukes who have screwed up Iraq
He seemed more concerned about repuke incompetence than the war on terror. Definitely a big change for sully.
