It’s been too long since Bill Maher has been on HBO to say things that offend everyone. In his a season premiere last night, Wanda Sykes stopped by for an important conversation about homosexuals in the military. It went swimmingly.

“They’ve embraced DADT, but they’re all for gay people going off and getting shot,” says the comedian, who was only one-upped by Family Guy‘s Seth MacFarlane: “If you’re sitting there watching TV in your undershirt, worry about terrorism, worrying about your family, and at the same time objecting to the person who’s out there putting his life on the line so your family can be protected, you’re the worst kind of fucking asshole there is.”

(If you wait long enough, you’ll hear what disgraced former Gov. Elliot Spitzer has to say on the matter — and how Wanda disagrees.)
