In the Midnight Hour, Give Me More Maher Moore

I was up later than usual tonight and caught most of the Bill Maher show. The panel tonight included Michael Moore, Kim Campbell (former Prime Minister of Canada), ..... and some Republican representative. The back and forth was fascinating, especially the part where the Congressman said something like 'Farenheit 9/11 was a documentary the way that Pravda was a newspaper during the Cold War'. Them's fightin' words. Especially since the guy hadn't seen the movie. Way to go, schmuck boy.

The other interesting point in the show was when they trotted out Nader and both Maher and Moore literally got down on their knees and begged him to stop running for president in 2004.

Honestly, I didn't know that Maher had the pull to get such an interesting assortment of people in the same place at the same time. I guess everyone is making the rounds as the election season heats up.

In a somewhat related item, Bill Clinton was on David Letterman. Although I always enjoy hearing Clinton speak, especially the parts where he can pronounce foreign countries, he said, "I agree with John Kerry" so many times I expect Jon Stewart to have an official count on his show tomorrow.
