Zack Kopplin to appear on Real Time With Bill Maher Friday night



Zack Kopplin, the teen who has become the face of the movement against teaching "intelligent design" (aka creationism) in Louisiana public schools, will have perhaps his biggest platform tomorrow night when he's a guest on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher. His fellow panelists: writer Sebastian Junger, professional political opinionist Abby Huntsman, Steve Moore (I think it's the economist) and Vt. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Kopplin, who's proven to be as media savvy as he is bright (exhibit A, B, C), will surely be embraced by Maher, and good on him. That said, it's worth remembering that Maher has been something of a dick when it comes to Louisiana issues. (He was more polite to Gambit when Noah Bonaparte Pais interviewed him in 2009.)
