    Right. I don't know any of us who would say:

    1) There is no difference between a comedian telling a joke and a political pundit attack.
    2) There is no difference between attacking a celebrity and attacking a non-public figure.
    3) If you think it's ok for a comedian to say those words, then anyone should be able to say them whenever.
    4) Bill Maher has a comparable amount of influence as Rush Limbaugh.

    These are ridiculous statements and it's indicative to the problems we face nationally.

    Look, this has more to do with Bill defending turf that he encircles frequently. It has nothing to do with what he thinks is right. The guy is more annoyed at the sponsor pull outs and boycotts, because he's a man who thinks his message needs to be heard and damned if pressure is put on him or others like him to stop being an insufferable ass.

    If you aren't smart enough to figure out the difference between Limbaugh and Maher/Letterman... you have bigger fish to fry, pal.

    Damn, not smart enough to be overly partisan, what ever will I do.....

    As for Palin, using conservative logic as we saw with Clinton and Kerry, she brought her 14 year-old-daughter into the discussion. Using the same logic Rush used with Clinton, and even the same logic used on Kerry and his service, this makes it fair game. If it doesn't, then conservatives who attack Chelsy, have to change their rules.

    children of politicians should be off limits. Kerry brought his service into it when he betrayed his brothers and sisters with his war crimes admittance winter soldier nonesnse.

    Sorry, but you seem like a weird fellow if you believe that. I'll take my other friends to comedy shows... no offense.




    They won't admit that there is a difference between a political pundit and a comedian... there is no way they will admit that there is a difference between an attack on a celebrity is a different from an attack on a non-public figure.



    Bill maher is no less a political pundit on that real time show than rush is on his show... Seriously?

    Oh does Rush do stand up? Did Rush get famous for comedy and then get a show? I know this is pointless, because you'll never admit it, but one is a comedian and the other is a political pundit who can change elections. If you can't see it, that's not my problem but don't expect me to apologize over it.

    Probably because Maher's audience is 1.3 million and Rush's is 12 million. http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...ht-more/122953

    There's a part of me that thinks it was intentional, not Obama, but Pelosi.

    Remember, this was an informal session. Republicans were not in attendance. Why? Because the purpose of the committee was to garner testimony on whether or not Obamacare was infringing on church/state separation. All previous testimony was from bishops, cardinals, priests, religious leaders. And here comes Ms. Fluke with an emotional appeal. Republicans basically said, "Nope. That's not what we're here for." Democrats said, "Well, then, screw you -- we'll just meet informally."

    No one can deny that it was brilliant.

    Please, Bill frequently crosses that line on his show, and has for quite some time. The guy wants to be taken seriously as a commentator on his program, with jokes on the side.

    His standup routine is more in line with a "comedian with something to say", but his HBO and ABC program are in the domain of "I have something to say, but I'm also really skilled at punchlines"

    You've already been corrected on Bill Maher being "just a comedian," and you've already said you've never watched his show, so why do you persist with that falsity?

    The only thing I can conclude is that you want it to be OK for Maher to say horrible, misogynist things about Sarah Palin, but not OK for Rush to do so as to a liberal activist on the national stage.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    See what I mean, you are selective. The only one who betrayed their brothers and sisters where the swift boaters for untruth. But that's another thread. And if you can pull up some old Limbaugh shows, you will Chelesy a topic often.

    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.
