Maher: Scientists ‘Cut and Run’ on Pluto
Posted on Aug 28, 2006
Bill Maher sends up conservatives’ war on science, abortion and the United Nations in this planetary riff during the first new episode of his HBO series “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
Crooks and Liars:
What a great way to start the new season of Real Time. We get an Iraq war defender acting like a totally belligerent idiot, then we get a great new rule that mocks about every argument the GOP ever makes.
Bill: “I say it?s time for the United States to sever its ties with science all together and withdraw from the solar system”
Maher really did a good job at looking like some wingnut and morphing the whole Pluto ordeal into other issues such as abortion and gay marriage. Even as funny as this new rule was, equally hilarious was watching the response of Max Cleland.
