Bill Maher on Hardball

Bill Maher appeared on Chris Matthews' show last night offering one of the best commentaries on Mark Sanford to date.

"At least Sanford was truly in love... You know, all these politicians, [Senator John] Ensign as you mentioned, and it's always just sleazy. They're just having sex with the easiest roadkill they can find. It's just, you know, 'Oh my god, the door just closed, my wife's in the other room, come over here and touch me.' It's this very sleazy quick kind of sex, and this guy Sanford, you know, I tell you, he could win women back if he just went to this mistress because obviously that's who he loves."
