The era of civility was on full display during Friday night’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
In the midst of a conversation about Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s Christian counseling clinic (recently under fire for attempting to turn gays straight through prayer), comedian Marc Maron spoke about how he thinks about “angrily f*cking” the Republican presidential candidate.

“I don’t want to be crass, but I just hope that Marcus Bachmann takes all that, ya know, that rage that comes from repression and denial and brings it into the bedroom with her,” Maron said. “I hope he f*cks her angrily, because that’s how I would. And I’ve thought about it.”
Just to ensure that observers could not charge the panel with sexism, columnist and gay-rights activist Dan Savage chimed in to say that he too would really like to do the same to another socially conservative presidential candidate, Rick Santorum.
“Just so you don’t get charged with sexism, because only Michele Bachmann was invo[lved] I sometimes think about f*cking the sh*t out of Rick Santorum,” Savage said to cheers. “Just ’cause I think he needs it. It’s not just women we are talking about f*cking. It’s like, ‘let’s bone that Santorum.’”
“I’d be up for whipping up some Santorum in Santorum,” Savage added, referencing the vulgar neologism Savage himself concocted back in 2003.
