Actor, comedian, and North Carolina native Zach Galifianakis appeared on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" Friday night, and his discussion with the show's host briefly touched on his uncle's 1972 U.S. Senate race versus Jesse Helms.
Maher began by teasing Zach about living in the North Carolina mountains ("You look like you live out in the woods in North Carolina," Maher joked, referring to Zach's scruffy beard). Maher teased him further: "You live out there with the abortion bombers and the like, crazy people." Zach: "Yeah, I think politically I don't probably fit in with the people, but they're very nice people." Zach then gave a frightened glance toward the camera, for a laugh.
Maher then segued into the Helms race. . . .
