The Baha’i actor, Rainn Wilson, appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher on November 10th 2006. Rain was a guest along with CNN’s Candy Crowley, and infamous author Salman Rushdie.
If you’re not familiar with the show, it is a satirical look at the US political landscape. Bill Maher takes no prisoners as his acid tongue lashes out at the idiocy found in government, whether Democratic or Republican.
This show aired immediately after the elections for the congress where the Democrats regained majority. A lot of hopes were raised at that time that this would mean some changes for government policy. Especially towards Iraq.
Its interesting to hear Rainn making comments regarding politics. Hope he doesn’t get in trouble with his LSA for being politically active
Oh and in case your are of the uber-sensitive disposition, be aware that this is a cable show (HBO) so there are some naughty words that you wouldn’t normally hear on American TV.
Don’t miss part #6 “New Rules”. Its probably the best part of the show!
