You all are much more generous toward the Streisand segment than I am.
I could have easily listened to that panel for 60 uninterrupted minutes, but Bari Weiss was a surprising opener with a poignant perspective, the mid-show scripted bit was sobering and the New Rules editorial was a strong pre-midterm call to action.
So WTF at grinding the whole show to a halt while Bill used his obsequious "gentle voice" on the mega-celeb insisting actors . . . and also singers! . . . have to be real, have to be honest. Really? Thanks so much for playing. And was that Bill Maher wistfully referring to the time when it was considered impolite to discuss politics and religion? He must've been glamourized.
[Note: I'm mad because I was really counting on RT to help me get through next Tuesday. Right now, I guess everything makes me mad--I'm strung pretty tight.]
