Rush is not an elected official, he's not even a politician, he's an entertainer and a commentator, just like Maher.
    I'm not them. How do you expect an entire party to agree on one issue? Here is my stance:

    1) Rush has a responsibility to the world because he has a lot of influence on politics. More than he should.
    2) Comedians can pretty much say whatever the **** they want.
    3) You can say what you want about celebrities but the general public takes a bit more kid-gloves.

    I think Rush is a dick for saying what he said, but he apologized. I don't think Maher should have to apologize for calling Palin a ****, because he said it on HBO and he's a comedian and she is a celebrity with a TV show. And Letterman... I don't watch his show either, but I know he's a comedian so he has to get some leeway.

    When's the last time he did stand-up? You might as well say Limbaugh is just a Top 40s disc jockey.

    Why don't you watch his show before you make these comments?

    It's beyond a doubt now that you just want to give Maher a pass. Why, exactly, is that?
    He's ranked 38 on Comedy Central's all time stand up comedians. He has a show on HBO. He can literally show tits on his show Rev. Tits. He can call Palin a whore while tits jiggle in the background and receive literally no fine (and no complaints from viewers since only Thorgasm watches it and he doesn't give a ****).

    And you want to compare him to Limbaugh? Yeah, we're being real smart here.

    Seriously dude, you are grasping.
    Yeah, totally grasping. I'm not the one comparing one of the largest syndicated pundits to a comedian who has a show on HBO who can say any word he wants, show nudity, call names, etc. This is childish.

    OMG, look in the ****ing mirror. When have you ever been willing to consider a conservative POV without vilifying us and calling us all phonies.

    You really need to watch the program more. I'm having difficulty remembering during the many years I saw his programs, where he flaunted tits to such a degree that would make Bull**** look like the PBS News Hour.

    In fact, I can honestly say you are full of it. I watched it every week for years.

    "Smart" like presuming to know he isn't a pundit having never watched his show. Got it.

    Oh, well; some people are rabidly partisan to their cores, and it blinds them completely. 'Tis a fact of life.

    You don't look on the right threads. There are times - they are few and far between, but they exist. You guys are the ones sticking up for this asshole and for no reason. Why not just say, "Yeah, Limbaugh is a dick"? It's so obvious.

    I haven't heard it, so I don't know. The general rule of thumb with comedians is to give them leeway... I don't know if you are a fan of comedy or not, but no one knows if a joke is funny or not until they say it... so yeah, slack needs to be cut sometimes. He may have gone a bit far, but it appears people did get mad and he did apologize so what does it matter to you?

    Rush does a political satire show, he constantly states he is an "entertainer", you have a double standard.

    Can you provide an example? I mean, you'd know what the one or two instances would have been better than anyone else.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Fluke was planted by Obama to change the direction of the discussion, since he had himself cornered with Catholics and that whole debate. And the media has played along exactly to their role.
    Your last sentence was meant as a joke, right? Unless the media somehow co-opted Rush Limbaugh into taking the lead on this? Damn that liberal media - they're even trickier than we thought.
