    btw, rush calls his show a political satire show... he uses absurdity to "explain absurdity"..... hiding behind "oh he's just a comedien" is weak sauce.
    Dude, he's a comedian. That's not my job to tell him what to do. Personally... I like my comedians to say the most ****ed up **** they can think of.

They are supposed to tell jokes and push the envelope. Sometimes you go too far, so you just dial it back and keep that in mind.

    Do I really need to explain the difference to you guys?
    Do we really need to have a discussion on the relative impact of David Letterman on the Democratic Party versus the impact of Limbaugh with the Right wing party? One guy is a late night comedian. The other runs the Republican Party.

I know, it's still hilariously funny to those of you on the Right, but for the rest of us it just reminds us why we are who we are politically.

    you don't get that song, it was a parody of what a democrat called Obama.


    (Affect(ing) a black accent to recount San Francisco mayor Willie Brown asking) "Who is this "Emily List? She's supportin' all these people. She's supportin' Sen. Dianne Feinstein. She's supported Sen. Barbara Boxer....She supported everybody. Why won't she support me?" -- Hillary Clinton. Source: John Broder of the LA Times

    "You'd find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they'd just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva." -- Fritz Hollings (D, S.C.)

    "Is you their black-haired answer-mammy who be smart? Does they like how you shine their shoes, Condoleezza? Or the way you wash and park the whitey's cars?" -- Song from the show of left-wing radio host Neil Rogers

    Blacks and Hispanics are "too busy eating watermelons and tacos" to learn how to read and write." -- Mike Wallace, CBS News.

    "You f*cking Jew b@stard." -- Hillary Clinton to political operative Paul Fray. This was revealed in "State of a Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton" and has been verified by Paul Fray and three witnesses

    'Hymies.' 'Hymietown.' -- Jesse Jackson's description of New York City while on the 1984 presidential campaign trail.

    The white man is our mortal enemy, and we cannot accept him. I will fight to see that vicious beast go down into the lake of fire prepared for him from the beginning, that he never rise again to give any innocent black man, woman or child the hell that he has delighted in pouring on us for 400 years." -- Louis Farrakhan who campaigned for congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in 2002, City College audience in New York



    Want to talk about biden and "articulate black people"?


    You didn't think this one through, eh?

    But if you really want me to, I'll look and see if I can find it. I mean, if you really want to force me to do that and are trying to make the argument that Maher has any where near the influence that Limbaugh does... then fine, I'll do it.

    But I digress. This constant bashing of women and people with brown skin is a wonderful campaign tactic this year and I sincerely hope you guys keep it up for the entire election cycle. You've permanently lost the black vote, I think making it a trifecta by throwing in the women and hispanics is a wonderful idea.


    I'm voting for Obama dude.

    I'd say context is probably the most important thing ever. The word **** does not piss me off. The word slut is not bad to me. Whore neither. Comedians can use those words all day. That's what they are paid to do.

    It's Jon with no 'h', and yeah. In fact, he just pointed out the other day the RNC memo about how the economy may be getting better but gas prices were still bad (I suggest checking the forum on that one LOL).

    So you want me to find someone on here who says they listened to Rush earlier? I think we all know I don't need to.

    Apparently. Discussion with conservatives is mind-bottling.

    I find those words to be those of the man of a weak constitution. There is never a need for such commentary as it's sexist as hell when a man pontificates on the promiscuity of a woman when discussing things that have little bearing on her choice in quantity of coital interactions.

    So? Seriously. Palin is a candidate, or was one, a player open to be commented on. But a private citizen at a hearing? Well, that's one way make sure citizens think twice about participating.

    As for out of context, aren't you doing something even less honest concerning Obama calling Palin a pig? Just asking. . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
