New Rule: Ken Mehlman is Gay
Kicking the party while they're down, last night Bill Maher went on CNN's "Larry King Live" and was as politically incorrect as always, stating that many chiefs of staff in Washington DC are homosexuals.
When asked by King to name names, Maher threw out the name of no one less than GOP party leader Ken Mehlman himself. Larry said he was unaware that Mehlman, who is rumored to be stepping down as RNC Chairman because of Tuesday's debacle, likes making out with men.
King: I never heard that. I'm walking around in a fog. I never...Ken Mehlman? I never heard that. But the question is... Maher: Maybe you don't go to the same bathhouse I do, Larry
Maher didn't retreat today. In his column on Huffington Post this morning he compared the Republicans to Scientologists, something neither group is probably very thrilled about.
