Wisecracking pundit Bill Maher believes that Glee, the all singing and dancing Fox hit show, is shoving gayness down our throats.

"They are shoving the gay thing down America's throat. And it turns out America got used to it surprisingly quickly," Maher said on Friday's edition of Real Time With Bill Maher.

The comic also had sharp words for President Obama, who has dragged his feet for too long when he should simply support marriage equality for gays, Maher said.

"Now that a Cheney, a McCain and a Bush have come out to support gay marriage, it's your turn, Obama."

"53% of Americans now support it, which means that 47% of Americans are a--holes," Maher said.

"But still, this is remarkable progress considering that it wasn't that long ago that just saying the words gay marriage made most Americans throw up in their Cornflakes. So, tonight, I'd like to congratulate the leadership of the Democratic party who really stood up for what was right.”

“I'd like to, but I can't. Because other than Gavin Newsom, Dennis Kucinich and that Governor of New Jersey who went all Brokeback Mountain with his bodyguard, no Democrat would touch this issue with a ten inch pole."

Instead Maher gave credit to TV for changing public opinion. “Because in the last five years it has gotten gayer than the British navy,” Maher said.

"If there's one thing I know about Americans is that if they see something on TV it makes it OK."
