Bill Maher on Thursday said that there was a connection between Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum's sexual frustration and his desire to bomb Iran.

In an interview with Chelsea Handler, Maher explained that former candidate Herman Cain was scheduled to appear on an upcoming episode of his HBO show.

"I like Herman Cain," Maher admitted. "You know, I said to him, I said, "Look, I don't like hate your fucking guts like I hate Newt Gingrich.' I mean, I really don't like him."

"No, I hate Newt Gingrich," Handler agreed. "And everyone watching also hates them, OK?"

Mayer said, however, that former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum was the most ridiculous candidate because of his views on gay rights.

"He wears a sweater vest everywhere, which is proof that he does not have one gay friend," Maher noted. "This guy thinks about gay sex more than any gay man in America. There's a guy down in West Hollywood working at Dorothy's and Dildos who does not think about gay sex as much as Rick Santorum."

"Also, [he] wants to bomb Iran," the comedian continued. "And I think people who are sexually frustrated want to bomb other countries. I really think there's a connection there. I think this guy is more backed up than [Interstate] 405."

On February 23, Maher plans to perform a free stand-up show on the new Yahoo Comedy Channel.

"I asked people what they would pay for it and they said, 'We would steal it anyway,'" Maher explained. "So I said, let's do it for free."
