If anything is going to wake up America it is Bill Maher and his guests on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, episode 331, which aired on October 3rd, 2014.
On the prior week’s show (see my review, Safe), Alexandra Pelosi, documentary filmmaker, sowed video clips of her man-on-the-street interviews. One after another, a person who indicate that they supported the Democrat position (which weren’t labeled with a party name), and then they would proudly proclaim they were voting Republican. The Republicans have done a good job of branding themselves as the party of strong defense, lower taxes and family values. Wake up America!

What is in the news this week? The same stuff that was in the news last week. Every day he learn about another failure of the Secret Service. Maher quipped, in the monolog that America hasn’t been this worried about a crazy person getting into the White House since Sarah Palin.
The United States has its first case of Ebola. The victim is a man from Nigeria who was visiting family in Nigeria. Maher quipped that it is Rick Perry governor of Texas, is now in charge of preventing an Ebola outbreak. Maher quipped, “Rick Perry doesn’t know whether to shoot it or cut its taxes.”
