What a great way to start the new season of Real Time. We get an Iraq war defender acting like a totally belligerent idiot, then we get a great new rule that mocks about every argument the GOP ever makes.

Bill: "I say it's time for the United States to sever its ties with science all together and withdraw from the solar system"

Maher really did a good job at looking like some wingnut and morphing the whole Pluto ordeal into other issues such as abortion and gay marriage. Even as funny as this new rule was, equally hilarious was watching the response of Max Cleland.

On a side note: John posted the video of Christopher Hitchens less than professional response to the audience (Sure - Real Time is a pretty rowdy show, but still). Generally during the new rules segment, they will show the guests and always do so at the end of the show. Vali Nasr did have to leave early to catch a plane, which Bill made known. They never did show Hitchens. I got a feeling he made a beeline for the exit as soon as he could.
