The October 27, 2006 episode was another great night of Real Time With Bill Maher! The episode starts with a cool skit about the wonderful work Halliburton is doing in the third world.
While there are enough third world babies (referring to Madonna's recent adoption) to go around today, we need to worry about the future. Halliburton is there today working behind the scene to create tomorrow's world through better wars. Why? Because orphans just don't make themselves! Ahhhhhhh.
That last line is so sick, but it’s a true by-product of all these wars. Some wars are necessary beyond a shadow of a doubt. Not all wars are necessary, though, when the reason, behind them, is we're getting low on profits or running out of third world babies for stars and people who want to give an Halliburton supported adoption program some hard earned cash. OK, enough with the jokes, the horse is dead! Opppps, a great time for Halliburton to sell a Harvester 815 combine to a broke third world county for plowing empty fields (when all the person needed was some good transportation).
Enough already, let's get back to the review.
Bill's monolog was as funny and thought provoking as always.
Bill has a good and informative talk with the U.S. Senator candidate U.S. Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. who is a good Tennessee Democrat (with some Republican sounding ideas, as Bill points out). Bill calls him Senator and wishes him the best of luck on November 7th.
The panel gives us inspiring and thought provoking moments, which before the election is important. When Harry Belafonte spoke people would stop and listen, very cool!
New rules were a good and a must watch! Go to the official HBO website.
