Maher Booed for Telling Gay Joke About Marcus Bachmann and Gaddafi Getting Sodomized
Newsbusters ^ | October 29, 2011 | Noel Sheppard

Although there are no limits to what Bill Maher will say about conservatives, it appears some of his audience members have a shred of decency that he doesn't.

When the host of HBO's Real Time made a gay joke involving Michele Bachmann's husband Marcus and Moammar Gaddafi being sodomized with a stick after his capture, some audience members actually booed (video follows with transcript and commentary):


BILL MAHER: The candidates are all dressing up for Halloween. Michele Bachmann is going as Wonder Woman. And her husband Marcus is going as Wonder Woman.

[Cheers and applause]

MAHER: No, he was going to go as Wonder Woman. Then he saw that tape, that video on the internet of Gaddafi getting a stick up his ass. Now he's going as Gaddafi.

[Cheers and applause, then boos]

MAHER: Come on. Only a minute into the show and you're booing me. I mean, come on. It's going to get worse.

Well, at least Maher was being honest, for it was going to get worse.

Nice to see that some of his fans know when he's gone too far.

If only there were more of them.

Just exposing his neonazi side.

Gays are fine as long as they’re on your side but if you need a handy insult, accuse someone of being gay.

BILL MAHER IS A MILLIONAIRE

Think about that while you're job hunting. :)

The sad part is that his audience was likely only angry about the Gadaffi part of the joke.

Can anyone imagine Jack Parr or Johnnie Carson using such filth to get a laugh?

Maher is a malignant tumor passing for humor.

Everything's cool if you have the correct political POV.

How can anyone take leftwing hypocrites - any of them - seriously.

I always wonder how people like Maher ever get TV shows, etc.

He has never said anything even remotely funny.

Is it family connections? It sure isn’t looks or comedic qualities.

True. It really wasn’t about “Gays”.

“I always wonder how people like Maher ever get TV shows, etc.”

You overestimate the minds and spirits of the American public by many magnitudes. You are after all talking about the same country that elected Obama and Biden.

Great idea...On stage, a huge tank of sea water with two great white sharks swimming round and round...the camera swings left to show a cocky Maher spewing his usual crap that he passes as humor...a giant pair of tongs drops to pick him up and deposit him into the shark tank..

I'd pay good money to see this happen.

Bill Maher will be trick-or-treating disguised as a stick.

The same country that, after Obama has proved to be a cataclysmic failure, cannot wait to put Hillary Rodham in charge.

Forget too big to fail. America is too stupid to survive.

The sheer fact that this vile piece of human garbage actually ‘has’ a television show really reveals the depraved depths the country itself has sunk to.

Bill Maher is Morton Downy Junior without the personality.

The painfully homely Bill Maher, allegedly a comedian even though he is about as funny as cancer, proves that you don't need talent to be on TV. Sure, his viewing audience is miniscule but he still has a TV show despite his abysmal ratings and distinct lack of providing anything that is even remotely associated with entertainment. Go figure.

"You overestimate the minds and spirits of the American public by many magnitudes. You are after all talking about the same country that elected Obama and Biden."

Also, the same people that make the scumbags in "Jersey Shore" a TV hit, not to mention many other trash reality shows.

Disclaimer: Yes, I DO watch American Idol and America's Got Talent. I like talent competition, although I can't believe some Sinatra crooner won AGT over the highly creative and unique Silhouettes or whatever their name was with the dozens of children. Never seen anything like it. They were absolutely inspiring.
