"Real Time with Bill Maher" continued host Bill Maher's smack down on the Democrats, who he described as "the new Republicans."
Maher lampoons the sacred cows of politics and popular culture weekly on his HBO series, and last week he suprised the both the left and the right with his lashing out against President Obama, who he urged to use some "audacity" per the president's campaign slogan promise in fighting against "corporate douchebags."
Maher hosted his roundtable that included political strategist Paul Begala, reporter Katty Kay and humorist Joel Stein. Journalist Hooman Majd and a very nervous but charming columnist Meghan McCain were his interview guests.
The show is posted below, including "New Rules" and the HBO after show:
