Rising Hegemon: "Bill Maher on Bush and Cheney"

wow, check this out. bill maher's definitely rockin' these days. i think the HBO gig suits him much better than the ABC one ever did, though it probably doesn't pay as well.

plus, he probably sees less of henry rollins and arianna huffington this way.
