Tuesday was a big day for Bill Maher.

Not only did he have his very own star unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame but he also managed to drop the N-word on "The Larry King Show" and no one seemed to notice.

Maher said he couldn't wait to see the GOP debates before the 2012 presidential election.

According to the CNN transcripts he said "How are they going to out fire-breathe each other? I mean where this rhetoric has gone to at this point? It's only 2010. And we're having Newt Gingrich, as we were talking about before, calling [the president] an anti-colonial Luo tribesman. Luo tribesman."

He continued "That's the new Kenyan, Larry. And Kenyan, of course, was code for [the N-word]. But that's where they are. They can't say it out loud. But that's where this whole campaign is going to be."

During the unveiling of his star earlier that day Bill Maher thanked George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and the pope for his star.

Dr. Laura, are you listening?
