Bill Maher Outs Ken Mehlman on Larry King Live

Bill Maher appeared on Larry King Live Wednesday night and outed RNC Chair Ken Mehlman. Via AmericaBlog comes this clip, for which I’ve written up a transcript.

MAHER: “Frank Rich wrote about this a couple of weeks ago. He said, yes we’ve heard about Mark Foley…but he said, that’s just the beginning of it. A lot of the chiefs of staff, the people who really run the underpinnings of the Republican party, are gay. I don’t want to mention names but I will Friday night.

KING: You will Friday night?

MAHER: There’s a couple people everybody in Washington knows, who run the Republican party

KING: You will name them?

MAHER: I wouldn’t be the first. I’d get sued if I was the first, but…you know, Ken Mehlman, okay there’s one I think people have talked about. I don’t think he’s denied it when people have suggested it (actually, he has). He doesn’t say…

KING: Ken Mehlman? I’ve never heard that. But the question is…

MAHER: Maybe you don’t go to the same bathhouse I do Larry.

KING: Why would someone who is gay take public anti-gay positions? Why would you do that?

MAHER: Because Larry, hating yourself is the greatest love of all.

KING: (Laughs)
