Bill Maher compares Rand Paul to Sarah Palin

Comedian Bill Maher has launched a major attack on Kentucky senate candidate Rand Paul.

On his Friday night show "Real Time," Maher claimed that the Tea Party hero, who won his primary race, was a complete nut job.

"It's as if Sarah Palin somehow made it through medical school," he said.

Rand Paul is an eye surgeon.

Paul has made controversial statements this week on repealing the 1964 civil rights act and the rights of property owners not to sell to people of color.

After discussing Paul's views Maher stated, "the sh** doesn't fall far from the bat."
