Maher Booed for Telling Gay Joke About Marcus Bachmann and Gaddafi Getting Sodomized

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.
