from brad blog: Bill Maher... had to throw out the first of the 9/11 hecklers himself. Things went downhill from there...
Tonight, Maher got a bit angry in return as audience members repeatedly interrupted the panel discussion with Maher, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee (D-TX), and LA Times columnist Joel Stein.
After the last of the hecklers - who ground the show to a halt (of sorts), for a few minutes - is removed from the studio audience, Maher says that folks from the movement have been holding protests outside of his studio ever since his comments last month. Tonight, a few of 'em got tickets to the show.
While things got a bit rough, and Maher called for an "ass kicking," nobody was tased, bro...at least to our knowledge.
