So I went with some friends to the taping of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight. The panelists were former Bush UN ambassador John Bolton, former Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM), and CSI: NY actor Hill Harper. Before the show began, one of Bill’s writers came out to prep the audience, and when explaining who the guests were, said that Wilson was running for Governor of New Mexico.
This was a surprise to me, as I had no idea that she was interested in running. And maybe the writer was simply confused. But it seemed maybe to be a piece of inside information that he didn’t realize was not public yet, and maybe had heard backstage when they meet the guests for the evening.
So take it for what it’s worth. He may have been completely wrong, or not. We’ll soon find out.
