In March, I posted video of Bill Maher saying Republicans “love Ronald Reagan in a way that’s just gay.” On Tuesday night’s edition of “Hardball,” Maher repeated the slur:

BILL MAHER: The Republican party has this campy fixation with Ronald Reagan. It is almost gay about the way they are talking about him and obsessing about him.

Sounds like Maher is the obsessed one …

Later in the segment Maher bashes Fred Thompson, calling him “basset hound face.” Yikes. That comment gave Chris Matthews a harsh case of the schoolgirl giggles. The MSNBC host could be seen laughing on camera for several moments.

What liberal bias?
