Real Time's New Rules from May 29, 2009, greed is bad edition, which was probably the best part of the whole show. The panel was awful with John Bolton and Heather Wilson and Maher failing to challenge either of them on much of anything. I was looking forward to the show when I saw Bolton on the guest list thinking Maher might get onto him for his neocon ways. He sorely disappointed.
Even in this portion which I thought was really good, there was a stinker. Apparently Bill's just now found out that there were soldiers electrocuted in Iraq. Hey Bill...that story is well over a year old. Where have you been?
If you caught the show you also learned that twinkies stay soft forever and Bill thinks that almost all food is going to kill us. I honestly don't know how the man manages to find anything to eat that suits his criteria after watching his interview with Michael Pollan.
Next week's lineup is D.L. Hughley, Richard Haas, Paula Froelich, Jeremy Scahill and Matt Miller.
