HBO host Bill Maher’s political views– and his crass way of expressing them– are well known to most.  Every once in a while, though, he takes things a step further than normal.

The mega Obama donor claimed back in March, for instance, that he should be held to a different standard after calling Sarah Palin a “cu**” than when Rush Limbaugh called 30-year-old Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a “slut.”  On Sunday, Maher made another noteworthy claim.

Apparently Andy Williams, the iconic singer of some of the most-loved tunes in history, is to be remembered as a “teabag idiot.”

Here’s the full context, from Maher’s Twitter feed:

The tweet followed one in which Maher called Senator Jim DeMint supporters “mouthbreathing a**holes” and “ignorant nativist pantswetters.”

Several of Williams’ most-remembered songs are Christmas carols.  Here are a few of his best:

Williams died in September at the age of 84.
