Bill Maher gays it up (even more than usual) on HBO’s ‘Real Time’ this Friday

It’s no secret I think Bill Maher is a dangerous (in a good way) comedian, and love that he says what a lot of people feel uncomfortable giving words to (like on particular word he called Sarah Palin at the Winspear earlier this year). He’s proven over and over what a great gay ally he is, and he does so again this week with a roundtable lineup that includes openly gay newsfolk Rachel Maddow and Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan, of course, is famously conservative, but he’s also intellectual honest and very pro-gay. Should be a good discussion.

The new episode airs live on Friday at 9 p.m. on HBO, with replays all week (including one at 10 p.m.).

Rachel Maddow: DADT Is The President’s Victory

Rachel

Interviewed on MSNBC this afternoon were former U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant David Hall, who was ousted from the military under DADT in 2002, and the network's talk show host Rachel Maddow.

Said Maddow: "Politically, the thing to not lose touch with here is that this is the President's victory. This is something about which the President took a lot of criticism, a lot of abuse, a lot of skepticism from his otherwise most loyal supporters. He continually insisted that this was possible that it would get done."

MADDOW: DADT Victim Maj. Mike Almy Vs. “Deceptive” Sen. John McCain

Major Mike Almy, who was booted out of the armed services after the government snooped into his private email, appeared on Rachel Maddow last night to denounce Sen. John McCain as “deliberately deceptive” for denying to gay reporters that the military performs such investigations. Almy points out that McCain “sat twenty feet away from me” during Almy’s testimony about his ejection before Congress.
