Bill Maher on 'Glee' gay-kiss controversy (video)

Even though it has been over a week now since former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Victoria Jackson made her comments known about the recent kiss shared on "Glee" between Chris Colfer and Darren Criss, we still have some people out there who are more than anxious to share just about every thought in their head on the topic.
For a prime example of this, we turn this time to Bill Maher. On his "Real Time" program Friday night, Maher kicked things off by claiming that television is just one way that America is showing an increased amount of acceptance to gay marriage and gay rights -- at least when it comes to making some of their issues present. However, he also managed to agree with one claim by Jackson that "Glee" acts in a rather heavy-handed way when it comes to Colfer and Criss' character of Kurt and Blaine. (To describe this, Maher uses a much more explicit analogy that cannot really be written about here.)
What really makes this whole monologue even more unusual is how Maher manages to trace "Glee's" philosophy concerning its viewpoint on gay rights to how the Republican party often chooses to hammer America over the head with its viewpoints until some people start to believe in them.
