Friday night's episode of Real Time with Bill Maher was one of the better episodes so far this season. Usually, Maher has a monologue, three guests, and two others, sometimes in studio, sometimes by satellite. Friday, he only had the monologue and three guests. And that was all that was needed. The conversation was spirited, and disillusioned conservative Andrew Sullivan had some of the most interesting things to say. If you don't have HBO, Real Time might be a good reason to get it. Check it out.
