(Newser) – Liberal comedian Marc Maron hit the jackpot on a recent flight when he upgraded to first class … and found himself sitting next to former GOP chairman Ken Mehlman, who recently confirmed he’s gay. Maron live-tweeted the entire experience, starting with a picture of Maron exposing his nipple as Mehlman slept in the background and moving on to paraphrase the political discussion that ensued when Mehlman woke up (“Karl Rove is not evil. He's my friend.”) and, of course, make a few “tea bagging” jokes.

Gawker was amused by the whole thing and Punchline Magazine deemed it “hilarious.” Slightly more right-leaning media, however, were not so amused. NewsBusters took Maron to task for “attacking” Mehlman with “gay jokes,” and The Daily Caller didn't seem too happy about the whole thing, either. See all Maron’s tweets here.
