Bill Maher makes sick joke about severed heads in Iraq

Bill Maher, on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher told a sick joke about beheadings in Iraq which has an increasing number of people up in arms.

Oh, I tell you, things are getting so bad over there. On Wednesday, for example, three severed heads were found by the side of the road outside of Baghdad . Hey, memo to the Iraqi people: severed head pickup is Tuesday. [laughter] Look, if you want to sleep late, roll them out on Monday night and then…[laughter]
The joke was aired on his show last Friday night on HBO.

Sounds like Maher's fifteen minutes are up.

If HBO drops Maher which they won't, Sundance would pick him up to go with their Liberal documentaries they have started to air several times a day. This man, if you can call him that, caters to one crowd and one crowd only. Those that do not agree with him 100 percent wind up throwing things at the television with his guests' comments and his own.

There's a good reason why he's only on once a night on a Friday instead of nightly anymore.

I don't think BM has seen the video of Eugene Armstrong. No one who has seen it could crack a joke ike that...these tapes are beyond description.

That is a sick joke which is an insult to all the suffering families. Certain subjects need to be off limit and Bill Maher was way out of line. Until he sees the emotional and beyond graphic video of the beheading he will remain the ignorant piece of shit he is.

Bill Maher is an asshole!!! Any network in bed with him deserves to be shut down. Would he make these tasteless jokes if it were a family member of his????????

I've known people who laugh at funerals. They can't help themselves. Soldiers and prisoners tell sick jokes. It's just another way of dealing with it. It doesn't necessarily mean that he's cruel and indifferent to tell these jokes. I think he's against the war and he's just feeling hopeless about it. You can't know what he was thinking. People are different.

"People are different."

Oh, r i g h t.

I run into people who can't help themselves all of the time. Out here, we call them children.
