    You don't laugh at misogynistic or racist jokes? But you are right, I didn't see Maher's joke it context, so it isn't fair for me to defend it. But I'll be damned if you are going to tell me to quit laughing at jokes. Patrice O'Neal had some of the best racist and misogynistic jokes ever! And if you don't like 'em, that's your ****ing problem!



    His joke about fishes dipped in honey killed me for weeks.

    So that entire video by Patrice O'Neal did not make you laugh? That's really sad for you, man. You should lighten up.

    I could say the same about your positions. Somehow you think Rush is a evil incarnate and somehow not an entertainer, but Bill Maher is not a pundit, despite having a show that that's all about political commentary. We even know, further, that Maher is politically active (donating a million bucks and all), but he's not a political commentator because he's on HBO and he's done stand up, and anything done during a standup routine is completely fair and cannot be criticized unless you, specifically, don't think it's funny. You're not the only one, WSS, who feels like you've landed in OZ. LOL

    Why can you not just admit that you hold Rush to a different standard because you don't like him rather than try to say that anyone who doesn't buy your whisper thin distinctions is just being so unreasonable?

    Part of it is Bill Maher, like many of the liberal/left's political commentary/political entertainers, have significant backgrounds in the stand-up or sketch comedy circuit. Some of them desire to be taken more seriously, and take that direction in various ways. John Stewart has his program, which is mostly comedy, with punditry thrown in from time to time. Bill Maher's programs are mostly punditry with a change of comedy thrown in. Rush Limbaugh, like many of the conservative/right's political commentary/political entertainers, had never been schooled in comedy or became respected from it, are strictly a school of tv/radio bombastic political commentators. Whenever he tries to venture into comedy, he is very hit and miss (my own bias would suggest miss more often than not).

    It is thus so much easier to get caught in the comedian/pundit chasm with some of the liberal political commentators/entertainers. It is even further easier to give said entertainers/commentators more leeway in their comments, because hey," they are comedians."

    Didn't watch it.

    Look, if you like racist and misogynist "humor," that's your thing. But someone who doesn't is not in need of "lightening up."

    Ok I'll buy that, most of them are clowns.

    Nah, they all desire to be taken seriously until the get busted saying something stupid, then all the sudden they are comedians again....It's a very convenient dodge for having to answer for their outrageousness.

    That's why I said it's easy to get caught in the chasm. In many respects, Stewart is right to claim to be a comedian. However, at other times, he oversteps his bounds, goes back to the comedian label, and his fans rally to him.

    And you can't/won't answer the question...
    “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.
