Bill Maher on Bristol Palin: 'The S--t Doesn't Fall Far From The Bat'

Bill Maher on Friday once again spent a good amount of his HBO program bashing Sarah Palin and her family.

In the concluding segment, the "Real Time" host actually said of Bristol, "The s--t doesn't fall far from the bat" (video follows with transcript and commentary, vulgarity warning):

BILL MAHER: In Bristol’s new memoir "Not Afraid of Life" - working title, "Whoops, There's a Dick in Me” - Bristol claims that the night she lost her virginity she had accidentally gotten drunk on wine coolers that she didn't know contained alcohol and then blacked out and didn't remember a thing. Oh, the Palins. I tell you, the shit doesn't fall far from the bat.

[Applause]

Bristol, just admit it. You were horny, and while we're at it stop claiming that you were on birth control pills that didn't work when you got pregnant. Here's a tip, hon: they're not birth control pills if they're shaped like Fred Flintstone.

Pleasant, isn't it?

This came moments after Maher referred to Bristol's mother as a "ditzy beauty queen" with "uninformed opinions."

Are the sexist attacks on female conservatives by members of the media ever going to end?
