Letterman Mocks Marcus Bachmann: 'If You're a Homosexual, He'll Take Care of You' - VIDEO


CBS apparently thought David Letterman went a bit far in discussing Marcus Bachmann's 'ex-gay' clinic in his monologue last night because they deleted the joke from the official web posting of the clip.

Letterman, in discussing the GOP debate mentions Michele Bachmann, adding:

"And if you're a homosexual, her husband will take care of ya. He's got a thing, a camp or a clinic or something. And if you're a homosexual and you feel you're in the need of some special treatment or counseling, he'll take care of you."

  1. I don't see anything wrong with the joke. He was obviously pointing out the absurdity of Marcus Bachmann and his "clinic".

    On a side note, I always assumed Paul Shaffer was gay. I guess not.

  2. She'll be demanding an apology from him, now, too.

  3. He made fun of ALL OF THEM. Where's the problem?

  4. Oh-Bachman! Love it. Her followers would be so dumb that they'd look to find Oh-Bachman on the ballot, but couldn't. And, honestly, that pig-faced pansy of a husband is just Halloween icky scary.

  5. Who suggested there was a problem? He's mocking the guy.

    And Paul Shaffer most certainly is gay.

  6. "Newt is the guy we need to lead us into the 18th century." PERFECT.

  7. Yes, he will *certainly* "take care" of you. Bravo! The whole ex-gay thing is ridiculous, and I can see comics getting a lot of material out of it.
    Black guy: "I know what you're thinking, I look black, but I'm actually ex-black."

  8. Yes this is political censorship pure and simple, and CBS owes an explanation of exactly why this is out of bounds for reasons completely unrelated to sexual orientation. That oughta be a whopper.

  9. Paul Shaffer is not gay. In fact, if you Google "It's Raining Men" and "Shaffer" or check his wikipedia profile, you'll find that 1) he wrote the lyrics to "It's Raining Men" and 2) his wife didn't think it was a good idea to do something that would promote a gay following.

  11. The republicant race is beginning to look like whack-a-mole. One pops up for 5 minures or less, then another as numero uno.

  12. @MIKE Just because one is married to a woman it doesn't mean that he's not gay. Hence Mr. Bachmann. Shaffer's wife didn't wand to promote "more" of a gay following you mean. But who would follow him? A star-f#cker maybe. I guess that's possible.

    The Letterman bit was very funny. Doubt Mrs. O'Bachmann will be demanding for an apology lest she draws attention to the fact that her hubby's an "ex-gay" type. Looks good on 'em. Where's they apology from her for saying that gay people are "of Satan" or from him saying that we're barbarians and need to be educated? Fair is fair!

  13. Whatever the Bachmanns thought about running to White House the results must be very different.

  15. Paul Shaffer is an extremely closeted gay man. He is an Orthodox Jew, so he has the religious crap going on. This is common knowledge in show biz.

    Dave, OTOH, is the love of my life...

  16. I LOVE DAVID LETTERMAN! He has been blasting the O'bachmans over this for months, with most of the jokes being much more offensive (to them) than this one. Letterman doesn't get the credit he deserves for being one of our more subtly outspoken allies.

  17. CBS would offer a mealy-mouthed explanation that they can't "slander" people or seem to prefer certain candidates. Utter crap.

  18. Was Letterman the one who got caught having sex with his staffers?

  19. I didn't understand the "O'Bachmann" joke, so I googled it and found that it was something that she mistakenly called herself--in the context of criticizing Obama for supposedly relying on teleprompters all the time to give speeches. Seriously--she couldn't remember her own name WITH a teleprompter!
