I love HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, however last night's show could have been much better.
Bill needs to make sure that his 3 guests get their say. Last night I wanted to jump through the TV screen to gag Kevin Costner. While some of the things he said made sense, for the most part he had a hard time making a succinct point. This caused him to ramble on & on. You could see that Gen. Wesley Clark & Richard Belzer were getting annoyed.
Then came the deranged Ann Coulter, which he had on via satellite. I don't know how he can call this nut his friend - and the audience let him know it. It's fine if you want to talk to someone on the right, but don't pick someone that is clearly insane.
My favorite part of the show is when he does his "New Rules." His last new rule was for Bush to quit linking wolves with terrorists. It's not fair to the wolves. He said the "only thing wolves have in common with Osama Bin Laden is that they're both running free." The best line of the night was something like: "If you think the only thing keeping up safe is a retarded cowboy and his heart diseased sidekick, then..." (I don't remember the rest.)
Other than that, the show could have been better...especially 4 days before the election.
