What was offensive about the remark/joke was not that Maher has noticed that we have a black president and isn't sure how to refer to him but how he thinks a black president should act. He stated in the joke that he wanted a black president that would pull back his jacket to reveal the pistol in his belt to influence his negotiations. Doesn't that infer that all blacks are gangsters? It sure would be construed to say that if it came out of a conservatives mouth.
Of course Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton resemble that sterotype so I can understand where he's coming from.
Mahler needs to crawl back under whatever rock originally spawned him. He's so irrelevant and ridiculous he makes Adam Sandler look dignified.

Seriously people, there's a thing called comedy. And it's not always PC.
