Maher Mocks Gingrich's Wife as a Martian

Remember the good old days when the family members of politicians were considered off-limits?
That of course is never the case for Republicans as HBO's Bill Maher sadly demonstrated on Friday's Real Time when he depicted Newt Gingrich's wife Callista as a Martian (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BILL MAHER: Newt Gingrich, oh my G-d, this guy, he's clinical. I'm going to show you later in the show why he is absolutely clinical. He thinks he's some sort of intergalactic ruler. He said, "By the end of my second term as president, we will have a colony on the moon, and if there's enough people there, it can petition to be the 51st state." We'll call it Lunarchusetts. [Laughter]
Now, I don't know if this explains anything, but take a look at this picture. This is a picture from the movie Mars Attacks. And here's Mrs. Gingrich. [Laughter and applause]
