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

    LOS ANGELES, March 7 (UPI) -- U.S. comedian Bill Maher used Twitter Wednesday to defend Rush Limbaugh who apologized for calling a contraception advocate a "slut."

    "Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting," Maher tweeted. "Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout."
    Translation: I make my living from sponsors, too, and I also am prone to push the envelope and insult people as part of my schtick, so we can't have any of that sponsor-pulling crap.

    Translation of the translation: When the rubber hits the road, I'm just like Rush... money talks.

    Then it must be OK to say horrible, racist things about Barack Obama, because he's a public figure, too.

    (Somehow, I'll bet that this, too, is different. Somehow.)
    Why is my name in quotes? Are you insinuating this not in fact my username?

    And yes, if a comedian wants to make jokes about Barack Obama then I think that's fine. Why not?

    See, you're weasling. I didn't say "make jokes." I said "say horrible, racist things." How about horrible, racist things? That OK too?
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    I don't think anyone should say horrible, racist things unless they are joking.

    Horrible, racist jokes are OK, then?

    If you can't laugh at racism, racism has won!

    I don't think these people know what comedy and laughing is. Somehow they think Kramer's meltdown was comedy so it was ok, but Bill Maher is a not a comedian, and that Rush Limbaugh has a comedy show.

    Every thing they say is completely the opposite of reality.

    Umm . . he's talking about laughing WITH racism, not AT it.

    You never watched Maher, so you have no idea what he said.

    But your idea that misogyny and racism are fine as long as they're "jokes" is telling in its own right.
