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.
A nasty unfunny man.
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.
That joke was so gay...
“....he doth protest too much”
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.
How can anyone take leftwing hypocrites - any of them - seriously.
I’d pay good money to see Maher attacked and eaten.
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.
I'd pay good money to see this happen.
Bill Maher is such a stick.
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.
Bill Maher jump the shark fail.
Long tongs... desperate sharks.
I would attack him for you. But I refuse to dine on him.
