After two lesser episodes, this weeks Real Time rocked again. Bill Maher, his panel and guests were all at their best.
Former FEMA chief Michael Brown, Bob Baer (the CIA guy upon whose work the movie Syriana was based) and New Orleans actor/comedian Harry Anderson told us how they felt. Which was remarkably similar: abandoned and betrayed by people higher up in the government.
The excellent panel then discussed how it is that a president can go on blundering almost daily and never be held accountable, without coming to a real conclusion - except that we live in desperate times. Fortunately, they were intelligent enough to make fun of the whole thing.
Bill ended the show on a lighter note with his New Rules, which were outrageous and hilarious.
