    Still waiting...
    Except every time the pill junkie speaks, Republicans crap their pants hoping he's saying nice things about them. He is, after all, the head of the party. Maher, on the other hand, is a foul-mouthed, opinionated Far Left/Libertarian combination that has a lot of money and not much else.

    I'm a liberal and I hate Maher. He's foul mouthed and crude - in fact, the other half of Limbaugh. Except, of course, unlike the junkie Limbaugh, he isn't in control of an entire political party.

    I don't know one person who watches Maher on a regular basis, let alone to get their news and talking points. Find one person on the board who said, "On Maher the other day..." LOL. It'll never happened.

I also think, though, folks have a right to decide for themselves if her arguments are convincing and it's not really fair to say that disagreeing with her makes someone a hack. I don't think anyone means to defend Rush's comments, heck, Rush doesn't defend his comments, but I think people would just like to see some parity. If what Rush said was wrong and worthy of outrage, then it's wrong for anyone to say it (or things like it). Otherwise, I'd prefer people be honest that the problem they have with Rush is not what he said, but who he is.
    Don't get me wrong, X. I don't agree with religious organizations having to provide birth control pills for their employees unless there is medical necessity. I think it violates church/state separation. I thought she clearly articulated how those 14% who do need them for other reasons are effected by Georgetown's policy of interrogating students in person for their medical need.

    The sole problem I have with Rush Limbaugh is his targeting a private citizen who gave articulate and reasonable testimony as being a slut and a prostitute -- and spending three days doing it. Those who disagree with her testimony? Hell, I disagree in principle, so I have no problem with that.

    For the most part, though, I rather agree with you.

    I've never seen his HBO show, but his standup is pretty fun.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Do they? yuou guys are certainly the expert on him since you are the ones that follow him. Who is he backing for president? And again...your distinction is that Maher isnt as relevant? Guess since he is so irrelevant David Axelrod must be wasting his time appearing on the show. You guys are a crack up...

    Re: Bill Maher defends Rush Limbaugh for 'slut' apology

    Wouldn't it make more sense that Maher, as an entertainer, is a bit bias regarding this situation? Particularly considering he has a tendency to say inflamatory statements himself?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
