    An official what? it was akin to a press conference. and what point? that some women it's more wrong to call sluts and prostitutes than others? I disagree.

    You tell me. Is it 'just' because she is an intentional activist that you feel she should be above the fray? Is it the words? Is it the speakers of the words?
    Kinda silly distinction if that's what it boils down to.

    Doesn't matter if they're women or not (or are you sexist?) or what form the libel/slander takes. It's who the words are being directed against. Rush is a national figure with a nationwide audience. If Fluke were a nationwide, popular figure as well (before the hearings) then it would be on her. As it is, it's on Rush.

    If some pro-choice Catholic hospital administrator testified and Maher slammed her that way I'd be just as outraged.

    Are you telling me he didn't get it worse than fluke? If you are going to make a legal case for slander, et al, you missed an opportunity during the last election cycle....

    I wasn't following the side-shows then, sorry. I don't know how popular "Joe-The-plumber" was or when Maher (or anybody else for that matter) started slamming him. He must have done something to merit national attention but without knowing what that was or when ...

    that sort of discredits the whole liberal argument. It has been a steady tirade of WHAT was said...not who it was said about. Thats why the congresswoman looked so incredibly stupid. So essentially...your take is that it is a 'winning' strategy to excuse calling women sluts whores, ****s, twats, etc, as long as they are public figures. You REALLY want to stick with that? Personally...Id LOVE to see them try and pull it off. As it is...I stand by my offer. Maher and the democrats will look FAR WORSE than Limbaugh.

    sure you are, you say he's a comedien, demonstrating an air of "its ok, that's what they do", sort of nonsense.
    Here we go again. You making **** up. I never once suggested that. But feel free to quote a post of mine that does next time you feel like accusing me. Good luck with that. I have however suggested there is a huge difference between a comedian who says something, and a leader of the republican party saying something. It's not ok for either. But it sure is different when, as a leader of the republican party, one is in essence speaking for the party. The other is striving for laughs.

    Not that tough of a concept. At least not for anyone with a modicum of common sense.

    Perhaps some research is in order then, while he embraced his new found fame, he was no more a "public figure" than this fluke person, in fact, he was far less of one.


    Joe the Plumber - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Note he wasn't a political figure when this all went down. The same folks suggesting libel and slander here for the most part, were along with the media, all over this guy with lies and half truths to attack this person for daring to go against Obama like he did.


    look the point is, I think Rosie o'donnel is an asshole,but I don't think anyone has more of a right to call here a prostituting whore than they do palin's kids, palin or fluke, It to me is in poor taste no matter if maher, limbaugh, you or I say it, there is no reason to use vulgar sexist language towards a woman, no matter what her social, public or political status is. these excuse makers today, for maher, letterman et al, stood resolutley silent, nope, not silent, they were all on board with going after palin, joe the plumber, and thousands of americans with vulgar name calling, lies, and half truths to attack a citizen for speaking out.

    Do you really believe this is the first time?

    Not a chance. Limbaugh has been the big loser on this. And it's not close.
