    I’m dying to see what Bill Maher has to say about the about the election. On Sunday I’m really excited to hear what John Oliver has to say.

    Good times!

      Curious what else they’ll really have to say at this point, aside from enjoying the benefits of HBO’s non-censoring of language of course. Maybe the tragic optimism that while the outbreaks of violence since the result have been bad, they might have been worse if the other result had happened or, god forbid, a tie. Maybe optimism at the fact that a group neglected for so long, a group of which feel Obama and his policies failed to do enough to help them, ended up voting for Trump, hopefully making the DNC realize their mistakes and come back to address them. Maybe an observation that these populist risings we’ve seen don’t have to become the neo-facist movements they can seem reminicent of, so long as the concerns are addressed without resorting to isolationism and bigotry that sadly accompany most of them, even if those dark views don’t represent a majority of the group. A look at the electoral college and the flaws with their populace representation would be good too, ditto the business as usual approach in the main parties, with one managing to suppress their unexpected populist leader and the other not. There is so, so much to learn from this election that people need to take a good, hard look at, and I really wish these programs weren’t going away right when they could really do some good work.

      Hell, John Oliver in particular might good for that, given how often he’s managed to examine these innocuous things that can really harm the lives of the poor, regardless of race, as well as small towns.

      Still, there will probably be some cringe-worthy Liberal salt too, so if you’re into that, it’ll probably be there.

    I’ll watch Bill Maher. Sadly, it’s likely to be the last one since I can’t imagine the Fuhrer allowing it to come back.

    • I wouldn’t get so down about things.That isn’t how Trump operates. It’s The Art of the Deal. He has already won; the bullying, opposition phase is over. Now comes reconciliation. There is no more need to be at odds with Bill, in fact I would wager anything that you will see Trump or a close surrogate actually appear on an episode next season via satellite to try to mend fences. Look at what happened a few weeks ago, he sent Kellyanne Conway to speak on RT. That was done for a reason. He won a good chunk of disgruntled dems who supported Bernie, that fact isn’t lost on him or his people. You have to remember, he is a business man, not a politician. This isn’t your traditional us vs them. The Donald Trump character who ran as a candidate was a pro-wrestling archetype (he is a WWE Hall of Famer after-all) because the MSM covered this election like it was pro-wrestling. He was playing Stone Cold, the anti-hero standing up to the establishment, now the show is over and the moderate business man will emerge.

        and washington will take him to the woodshed and tell him how things are run. Already happening – the wall these people wanted is already getting downgraded to an extension of the fence and some more officers. One promise down with many to follow. Guess the guy who would change things really won’t and that kiddies is your lesson in politics. Class dismissed.

      • Temperance says:

        I’ll agree to consider reconciliation when he’s not breathing anymore and whatever horror he’s about it unleash is fixed.

    CB!B! :)
    I might check out the performance of ‘Gypsy’ on PBS tonight too, though the last half-hour is going to interfere with the first of the two CBB episodes… :\

  13. LT says:

    Real Time is going to be EPIC!

  14. Paula says:

    Dateline
    play catch up with my dvr

  15. Temperance says:

    I wish Maher could run most Friday’s throughout the year. You certainly can’t trust the news, and at least people discuss things on the show and present comments that you can verify.
