As we speak, WaPo’s Ezra Klein, an avid FishbowlDC reader and a big fan of what we do here, is strapping on his TV boots, glossing up those lips of his, and dressing up in his Sunday best (despite it being Friday) for what promises to be an extra special night for him and for us.
At 10 p.m., Klein will be on the panel for HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” along with Gloria Steinem, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, author T.C. Boyle, and comedienne Tracey Ullman.
And, as if it weren’t great enough that our second-favorite Ezra is going to be on TV for a whole hour tonight, he’ll also be answering questions after the show on HBO.com. That’s right, Maher and the panel will stick around after taping ends to answer questions submitted online. Current possible questions are about the Wisconsin union protests, Libya, and the Westboro Baptist Church. If you have something more fun, submit it here.
Don’t worry if you can’t watch tonight. We’ll bring you a full report of what goes down on Monday.
