    Good episode the show came back strong so funny those Mark Foley emails. The panel and guest were great the weakest being the governor of Montana. New rules was funny but come on the Obama butt peek was disproved sad that Bill still went there and loved his synopsis of Mj's death and the media coverage.

    I appreciated the Governor of Montana, it is true that there are lots of options out there for coal and conservation and many things that people are just don't know anything about. Ultimately Anna's "green opportunities" angle was also just as adept but whatever gets things moving forward is progress and the governor probably has a lot to offer.

    Maher should have ripped into Sarah Palin far more, Letterman was so maligned and defamed while her silly daughter (the ignorant one, oh that wasn't specific enough, the one who did get knocked up) has been on covers of magazines explaining "if teens only knew the results of sex" = baby (is that something her mother of didn't tell her?)... as if it was this girls job to instruct teens while her own stupid mother seeming failed to have told her what would happen as otherwise she would have known this before and not be holding up her baby as a huge mistake that other teens shouldn't repeat... instead it was a PRESS AGENT who told her these things she is now passing along to other teens... I don't know if Alaska is afraid of "Mexicans" like Alex Rodriguez knocking up their daughters and need to build a fence before the Texans.

    Finally, Maher didn't mention Farah Fawcett (being a hound-dog he probably thought about her far more than MJ). This was the point he and many people have been making... "today on CNN, more about MJ..." what actually happened two people died that day, actually thousands of people died that day and every day since. There is news and then there is gossip. I think reminding people Farah and other people died that day and in subsequent days would have been nice.
