Bill Maher breaks out his new rules on Friday's Real Time and his final rule deals with politicians who say that Americans are smart enough to see through spin and lies. Maher speaks the truth - it's amazing that during the information age, it's still so difficult to get factual information to the public. The facts are that Barack Obama isn't a Muslim, Saddam Hussein wasn't involved in the 9/11 attacks and global warming is real -- yet somehow, to some, they still remain theories.

Maher:"New rule, politicians must stop saying "the American people are smarter than that." No they aren't! If the Bush era has taught us anything, it's that voters want a president carved in their own image. Someone who doesn't like to read or believe anything he's told and is easily distracted by bright, shiny objects."
