    Yes but he is not a comedian.

    I think it's dishonest to call Maher "just a comedian". If he was, he wouldn't have a show where he has guests coming on to discuss serious topics including current events, religion and politics. He adds his own little zing to the discussion, but it's not comedy. He pretty much does the same thing as Limbaugh, just on TV and with harsher language.

    Sure he is...by definition he really is...

    A comedian (sometimes comedienne, see below) or comic is a person who seeks to entertain an audience, primarily by making them laugh. This might be through jokes or amusing situations, or acting a fool, as in slapstick, or employing prop comedy. A comedian who addresses an audience directly is called a stand-up comic.

    Are these new rules about comedy? He does a bit about new rules but haven't seen these yet...if you asked Limbaugh what his profession was, do you think he would say comedian?

What is all the big deal over a little word?

    There IS an appropriate word in play. 'Hypocrites'. Yeah...that fits. Liiiiiiiike a glove.
    Yeah, Maher has a show that is political. He has opposing views on that show. Rush has a show where he allows sycophants and uber-mega-slurp-slurp-dittos people on his show. Maher contributed a million bucks to a SuperPAC that supports Obama. I have no idea what Rush has donated. Rush in on air 15 hours a week. Maher is on one hour a week. Maher doesn't spend the whole hour speaking either. Sure, there are similarities, but it's still a false equivalency. But you are entitled to be more outraged about hypocrisy than the actual subject you think people are being hypocritical about.

    Maher isn't a king-maker.

    On his HBO show he said Palin dressed like a slutty flight attendant and called her a stupid twat.

    Wasn't the "slutty flight attendant" line from Letterman?
