The misanthrope. . .

. . .with the cauliflower face has been hit with something a little less heavy and blunt than I would use, but anytime Bill Maher gets hit with something, it's cause for my amusement. Unfortunately, instead of a bus, he's been hit by a palimony suit. Which is a lot less painful than what he allegedly had planned for the plaintiff:

"Nancy Johnson, a centerfold model and former flight attendant also known as Coco Johnsen, alleges that Maher, 48, reneged on promises to pay her expenses and purchase a Beverly Hills home. Johnson, who says she dated Maher for 17 months before splitting from him in May, also contends that the performer promised to marry her and have children. Johnson, pictured at right, does not detail the degrading racial comments allegedly made by Maher, and recounts only one episode of supposed physical abuse by the host of HBO's "Real Time." She charges that Maher pulled her arm and shook her at one party, causing "injuries to her back and neck," and later that evening warned he'd hit her on the head with a hammer if she was unfaithful."

My question to Maher is: Given your past references to the President as "Drinky McDumbass" and "cokehead", is it now fair to refer to you as, "Slappy McRacist" or "hammerhead"?

Nevermind. I don't care if it's fair or not. I can't wait to hear the rest of Slappy's sordid details.

Hat tip to blondie for the heads-up.

UPDATE: Forgot to include my obligatory reference to Bill Maher as the Nellie Oleson of political commentary.

And, apparently, he's now the Ike Turner of the comedy world, too.
