Self-described “comedian” and millionaire Obama supporter Bill Maher says watching a full day of MSNBC is enough to turn him Republican.

“As much as I’m very fond of all of the people at MSNBC, Chris Matthews and Rachel (Maddow) and Lawrence O’Donnell, they’re all good people. But if I watch it, like, for a whole day, I want to marry Ann Coulter and join the tea party,” Maher told the Patriot Ledger in response to a question about media polarization.

Maher is one of several wealthy donors financing the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA, which recently ran an ad suggesting that Mitt Romney was responsible for a woman’s death from cancer.

Maher donated $1 million to Priorities USA in February.

He is notorious for his repeated attacks on former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who he has repeatedly called a “cunt.”
