Bill Maher Stirs Crowd With Plea for Obama to Make Limbaugh 'Explode Like a Bag of Meat'

The death wishes for Rush Limbaugh just never stop. Catching up with the October 9 edition of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher (the get-the-Pope-some-sex edition), Maher concluded with a plea for Barack Obama to tell the gay-left advocates at the Human Rights Campaign he will push for the end of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the military (which Obama proclaimed.) Maher cracked:

But forget all the good arguments for repeal, like because it’s the right thing to do, or because it was promised in the campaign, or because it gets lonely on a submarine. Do it because it will make Rush Limbaugh explode like a bag of meat dropped from a helicopter.

The easily excitable Maher crowd was screaming and laughing from the word "explode." They didn't wait for the end to endorse Limbaugh dying.  Maher continued:

Do it because it will make Sarah Palin "go rogue" in her pants.

Because here’s the thing about today’s conservatives: they’re not bright. They can’t keep a lot of ideas in their head at once, and by "a lot" I mean two. If can get them worked up about the Gay Menace, it will siphon away all that crazy town-hall energy away from the health-care debate.

At the start of the show, a fake ad for Snuggies and ShamWows hinted at the Christian-bashing to come. They made up this Jesus-bashing concept:

Sham Vow! The Shroud of Turin printed on ShamWow material. It’s the last fake religious cleaning artifact you’ll ever need!
