It's with good reason that Bill Maher's liberal politics don't prevent many conservatives from enjoying his comedy.

They know it's just a matter of time before Maher notices that the emperor is strolling down the sidewalk shorn of attire, and Maher will mock him regardless of the target's political affiliation. (Video after the jump)

It goes without saying that many conservatives think Bill Maher is one of the biggest losers on television.

On Monday, the perilously liberal Huffington Post put the following headline on its front page:

Bill Maher is very unhappy that rich conservatives are having an impact on politics.

With this in mind, HBO’s Real Time host on Friday encouraged "rich liberals" such as guest Jay Z, Oprah Winfrey, and Steven Spielberg to "get in the game," “pony up” and “buy a state” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Former Congressman Barney Frank (D-Ma.) took a shot at Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) Friday.

Appearing on HBO’s Real Time, Frank said, “I have a little bit of a soft spot for Christie because I have an interest in rude fat guys doing well in politics.”

Bill Maher on Friday attacked the media – particularly MSNBC’s Chris Matthews – for hypocrisy concerning how they handle sex scandals based on whether or not they like the politician involved.

The HBO Real Time host correctly pointed out that the Anthony Weiner-bashing Matthews absolutely adored John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton who were both involved in far worse sexcapades than the New York City mayoral candidate (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Bill Maher has said some disgusting things about religion before.

Possibly the most disgusting came on HBO’s Real Time Friday when the host actually said, “God in the Old Testament is a psychotic mass murderer” (video follows with transcript and commentary, file photo):

With Grover Norquist’s help, Bill Maher once again made a fool of himself Friday evening.

In the middle of an HBO Real Time discussion about ObamaCare, the host seemed shocked to hear that Bob Dole isn’t a real conservative leading Norquist to derisively comment to former Congressman Connie Mack (R-Fl.), “He doesn’t understand the difference between Reagan and Dole” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

HBO's Bill Maher wrote a check Friday evening that his body clearly can't cash.

It seems even the CBS Late Show audience is tiring of Bill Maher.

On Tuesday, the HBO Real Time host was booed twice for tasteless jokes about the George Zimmerman verdict (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
