Bill Maher Calls Democrats ‘Pussies’ Twice On Larry King

maher_king.jpgLast night on Larry King, comedian Bill Maher was working his blue material while discussing Ann Coulter‘s “faggot” utterance:

MAHER: You have to think like a right-winger. First of all, it’s interesting to note that she made that comment in front of that right-wing convention. She was not booed. There was actually a moment of ooh and then they all burst into applause. It went over like a cross on fire. They actually liked that comment. And to people, normal people, you know, people who think like human beings, it was just confusing. It was like why is John Edwards gay? He’s good looking. OK, is that equivalent with gay? No. And then she explained it and I kind of thought about it and I see what she’s saying, is that, no, she really meant to say — what she was trying to say, it’s code word for the Democrats are — I hope I can say this — you said faggot — pussies. Can I say that?

Then, later:

KING: The Democrats have pulled out of the Fox debate.

MAHER: Well, and this is why she has a point. They’re pussies, OK?
