Well, I was going to fill this slot with a long analysis of what I liked and disliked about the Olympics, but work intrudes. So a segue to some good news.
Real Time with Bill Maher started it's seventh (or 11th... depends on some accounting irregularities) season Friday night, joyfully celebrating a return and a news present in the form of the new Republican vice-presidential nominee, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The result was predictable. Maher and the panelists, Craig Ferguson, Michel Martin and New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine (a Democrat) had a field day. The funniest part was a New Rules quick joke session on tape with various Democrat bigwigs (many putative Democratic VP candidates) delivering the punch lines. They were actually pretty good.
The last bit hasn't made it to YouTube yet. But it will. At least I hope HBO will release it.
Welcome back Bill.
