Bill Maher: 'Republicans Say They Love Herman Cain So They're Not Racist - Right'

Last Friday, Bill Maher called Republicans paranoid, greedy racists.

On the most recent installment of HBO's "Real Time," the host said, "Republicans say they love [Herman Cain] so they're not racist - right" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

BILL MAHER: Just bear with me. I want to show for the folks who may not follow politics as closely as we do who all the people are who are now in or possibly in for the Republicans. We’re going to show you some pictures. Let me start with the first category. These are the people who have either declared or just, you know, pussy-footing, but they’re really in.

There’s Tim Pawlenty, raw sex appeal. Mitt Romney, you know him. He ran last time. Ron Paul announced today. He of course has been in Congress 31 years. His theme: I hate government. Mike Huckabee says he has a big announcement over the weekend which is either he's going to run or “Hee Haw’s” coming back. Herman Cain, I never heard of this guy, but apparently he ran Godfather's Pizza, and Republicans say they love him so they're not racist - right.

So, whatever Republicans do they're racist.

They don't support a black presidential candidate, they're racist. They do support a black presidential candidate, they're racist.

Got it?
