Maher: Palin is 'a lazy money grubber'

(CNN) - Comedian Bill Maher on Wednesday repeated his frequent slams against Sarah Palin, calling her a "lazy money grubber" and claiming that "all she does is cash in." Maher was partly echoing sentiments expressed by Levi Johnston, the ex-boyfriend of Palin's daughter Bristol.

Johnston told Vanity Fair last October that the former Alaska governor, "would blatantly say [after the 2008 presidential election], 'I want to just take this money and quit being governor.'"

Maher also vented about President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, the war in Afghanistan and illegal immigration in a wide-ranging interview broadcast on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.
