Bill Maher loves to make jokes at Bristol Palin's expense. The daughter of Sarah Palin, whose new reality show premieres next month, says he IS a joke.

On June 19, Lifetime debuts Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp. Whether the new series succeeds or not is an open question. How Maher feels about her is not.

The comedian and talk show recently joked that Bristol will probably name her next baby Colt 45, after what Bristol's drinking when she gets pregnant.

That dig, also directed at her baby daddy Levi Johnston, who has another kid on the way (with Sunny Oglesby), did not go over well with Bristol Palin.

Asked what she thinks of Maher, she told Zap2it, "I find it really weird that all these adult men, that they're always trying to say something about me."

"They're older than my dad. They're just evil. They're like little girls. I feel like I'm in high school with a bunch of teenage girls. It's very strange to me."

Regarding what she'd say to Maher, Palin says, "I don't know. I'm not sure what I would say. I'd kind of shake my head at him. I think he's a joke."

"My mom just heard me say something about Bill Maher [and said], 'I'd punch him in the throat!' Someone does need to put him in his place, though."

"If my dad or any of my guy friends got a hold of him, he'd have another think coming," she adds in jest ... or not really. "He really is a joke."

Maybe so, but that Tweet above was pretty funny.

Comedian Bill Maher announced during a comedy special Thursday night that he would donate $1 million to the pro-Obama Priorities USA Action Super PAC.

The host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher dropped the (money) bomb at the end of "CrazyStupidPolitics," streamed live on Yahoo. He said the following:

"I would like tonight to announce a donation to the Obama super PAC, which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name Priority [sic] USA Action."

"I know, it was named by Borat," Maher said. "But tonight, I would like to give that PAC one million dollars," prompting cheers from the audience.

The donation, manifested onstage in the form of one of those oversized checks, provides a significant boost to the pro-Obama Super PAC's coffers.

The group raised less than $59,000 in the month of January and $4.4 million overall ... not even that much more than the Colbert Super PAC really.

Super PACs can raise unlimited amounts of cash to support political causes, but are not permitted to coordinate their activities with candidates they favor.

Bill Maher said that a 2012 Obama victory was "worth a million dollars" and described the donation as  "the wisest investment I think I could make."

He encouraged other wealthy donors to give to the group as well.

The most-well known atheist in Hollywood is at it again.

Following Tim Tebow's worst performance of the season - four interceptions thrown in a 40-14 drubbing at the hands of the lowly Bills - Bill Maher Tweeted about the faithful quarterback:

Wow, Jesus just f—d #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them."

The Tweet enraged many online, including Fox News' Eric Boiling, who replied: Bill Maher is disgusting vile trash. I can’t even repeat what he just tweeted about Tebow..on Christmas Eve. #straighttohellBill

Not surprisingly, Tebow - who was warned by a fake JC Himself that upcoming games would be difficult - didn't address Maher's Tweet, simply writing after his poor showing Saturday:

Tough game today but what’s most important is being able to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas everyone GB².

What do you think of Maher's message? Did it go too far?

Bill Maher talked to David Letterman about his fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View, and needless to say, didn't seem eager to apologize and put this to bed.

On the contrary, the outspoken late night comedian seemed more amused than anything that Hasselbeck ambushed him about a joke he once made about her.

"You kind of walked into a deal there, huh?" Letterman said. Maher's response? Diss her and make a reference to former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, obviously ...

"I was abused. I felt like a teenage boy at Penn State," quipped Maher, never one to pass on an un-PC zinger. "It's funny, I am never in the role of the victim... It was like, thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, for making me look good!

"She had some bug up her ass," he added, but then softened his tone. "Look, I'm only kidding. I like her a lot. We have this relationship on TV where we hate each other."

Watch the aforementioned exchange on The View after the jump:

There was a pretty intense showdown on The View yesterday.

Bill Maher appeared on the program, months after making a crack that the U.S. should have sent Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Egypt in exchange for Lara Logan after that CBS journalist was attacked there in February.

Soon after taking a seat on the couch, and making a statement in defense of women with regard to the Jerry Sandusky mess at Penn State, the comedian was asked by the host about this joke. He explained that he lived "on the edge" and it wasn't personal and his audience is HBO... but Hasselbeck was NOT letting Maher off the hook.

"I actually feel smarter sitting next to you," she said at one point, to which Maher replied: “Really? I feel like I’m in high school sitting next to you.”

Bill Maher is rarely afraid to speak his mind. The comedian lost his ABC program, Politically Incorrect, in 2002 when he said Americans were "cowards" for "lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away," while the terrorists on board the 9/11 planes were "not cowardly."

Now, the talk show host is creating a scandalous stir once again.

On HBO's Real Time Friday night, Maher compared the verdict in the Casey Anthony trial to "Republican thinking." His reasoning?

"[Half of American voters] say 'I'm with the party that cuts all these programs for real people, for the 99 percent. Planned Parenthood, environmental protection, college, health care, infrastructure, but holds the line on private jets.' Voting for them is as stupid as voting not guilty for the mom who lost her baby for a month and went looking at a wet t-shirt contest...

"Yes, Republican base, you are just like that jury. It's pathetically clear who's killing the middle class but you keep letting them get away with murder.."

Watch the full monologue above and decide: Did Maher go too far?

The entire Anthony Weiner scandal is a sad state of affairs.

It's hard not to feel sorry for Weiner's wife, his constituents, the state of politics itself.

But it's also hard not to watch the following video and think the whole thing was worthwhile. In it, Bill Maher and Jane Lynch recite, word-for-word, an exchange between the Congressman and one of his Internet mistresses. Again, remember: this exact conversation actually took place online...

It's 4/20, baby. You know what that means, right? THG does.

Well, sort of. The origins of 420 are hotly debated, but no matter where the term came from, people associate it with smoking massive amounts of weed!

As such, the 20th day of April has become a de facto holiday.

With that in mind, The Hollywood Gossip salutes 10 famous individuals who have been known to puff the herb from time to time. Some even inhale ...

10. Bill Clinton. As President of the United States, William Jefferson Clinton presided over the largest peacetime economic expansion in American history.

But boy, was he a terrible liar. The Lewinsky debacle was technically worse (what with perjury charges and all), but "I didn't inhale" was pretty legendary.

9. Jeff Bridges. He played The Dude! Enough said, really. But to further our argument for his inclusion, we suggest reading these Big Lebowski quotes.

Hey, we love Bill Maher. The liberal talk show host is able to cast a humorous light on George W. Bush adminstration, while debating serious issues simultaneous.

Evidently, though, the woman accused of prompting the Whitney Houston divorce from Bobby Brown REALLY loves Maher.

Karrine Steffans, the "video vixen," is adament that she had nothing to do with the ending of this couple's long-time nuptials.

"It's not my place to speak about their marriage," she said. "I can't break up a 16-year marriage in a few months. I'm not that super."

At that, Paris Hilton scoffed at her lack of competition in the mistress department.

Steffans then ended the brief interview by stating, once again, who her real soulmate is.

"I still love Bill [Maher]. He's the love of my life. I know you'll see us back together."

Hey, if Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson can keep finding each other - and getting married - we have faith.
