Bill Maher's Graphic Redefinition of Marriage at the Supreme Court

The liberal host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher took to Twitter to respond to this week's Supreme Court hearings on the constitutionality of Proposition 8 and the so-called Defense of Marriage Act.

Responding to the debates in court over whether a couple's ability to procreate established that couple's legal right to marry, Maher had characteristically snarky, biting retorts. 

"Listening to [the] Supremes on whether marriage is a magic word earned only [by] ejaculating in a vagina," tweeted Maher on Wednesday, when the Supreme Court was hearing U.S. v. Windsor, a challenge to Section 3 of DOMA, which prohibits the federal government from recognizing legally married same-sex couples. 

Maher elaborated later Wednesday night, suggesting new distinctions within the "classic" institution of marriage.
