Bill Maher: “Rick Santorum thinks about gay sex more than any gay man in America”

Pin it

Bill Maher

Yesterday, Bill Maher and Chelsea Handler got together to commiserate, as comedians, about how sad it was that Herman Cain had dropped out of the race — since with his bizarre pronouncements and near constant flubs (How do you say "delicious" in Cuban, anyway?), he was a comedic gold mine. Thankfully, for comedians' sakes, (and terrifyingly for the rest of us) we've still got Rick Santorum

Chelsea asked who the funniest GOP candidate is now that Cain is out of the race, and Maher answered Santorum. He went out to point out that there's no one in America more obsessed with gay sex: 

“He wears a sweater vest everywhere, which is proof that he does not have one gay friend… This guy thinks about gay sex more than any gay man in America. There’s a guy down in West Hollywood working at Dorothy’s and Dildos who does not think about gay sex as much as Rick Santorum.”

He also brought up the fact that Santorum is likely the most sexually frustrated man in America. A valid point: with a little Googling and basic knowledge of his policies, we could infer that Rick Santorum last had an orgasm in sometime in March of 2008 — nine months or so before the birth of his youngest child. Or at least I'd certainly hope that was the last time, since he's been pretty outspoken about the fact that he does not believe in sex for pleasure, contraception, or (surely) masturbation. Which is to say that Maher's charge —  "He's more backed up than the 405" — is probably spot on. 

In either case, it's good to have someone making us laugh about the national prominence Rick Santorum. It helps stave off that deep feeling of shame.
