    1-that doesnt make you any less of a hypocrite. 2-Its bull****. Bill Maher hosts a weekly show where he brings in 4 guests that are ALL politically driven and motivated. Typical dodge...but its bull****.

    did you condemn extremists who were threatening to boycott the sponsors of that cable show that discussed Muslim-Americans in a positive light?

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

    What I want to know is why this is, or even should be, a partisan issue.

    Your daughter, an intelligent, articulate law student who's every parents' dream, has an opportunity to speak before an informally-convened Congressional committee. She gives a very informative narrative, and you're really quite proud of her.

    Then, the next day, your daughter is villified on a radio show that purportedly has 12 million listeners. And the next day. And the next.

    Why is this a partisan issue? I am gobsmacked that conservatives on this board have lined up against this young woman. Have damn near applauded Rush Limbaugh for his disgraceful besmirching of this woman's name on national radio. If this isn't the most partisan bull**** I've ever seen on DP, I'll vote Democratic in the next election.

    As to law students spending $3,000 on birth control? A law student is a student for seven years. So do the math. And don't give me this crap that birth control is available for $4 a month. Even Planned Parenthood, per their website, says the cost is $15 to $50/month. Birth Control Pills - Birth Control Pill - The Pill

    If ya'll weren't just interested in playing the Gotcha' Game, you'd be honest enough to recognize that she made an excellent case for birth control pills being covered by all insurance companies (as mandated under Obamacare) because, in many cases, women need them for reasons beyond birth control.

    If you can't see that...if you think it's just absolutely fine that Rush Limbaugh tried to make a fool of this woman...if you think his left-handed apology should be sufficient...if you think the Left are partisan hacks...well, I'd suggest ya'll take a good look into your bathroom mirrors.

    Hell no. Nor do I condemn the sponsors pulling their support from Limbaughs program. I have been very much supportive of individuals and their right to vote with their dollars. I 'liked' Samssmart's comment on the Limbaugh supporters, and reaffirmed their 'right' to do so. Next?

    so the biggest lesson from this whole episode is that all the hacks are butt hurt because at some point some media figure was hypocritical.

    Let me explain this for all of our conservative friends.

    Bill Maher is an opinionated, foul mouthed Far Left standup comic who defends Rush Limbaugh because the two of them do exactly the same thing.

    Rush Limbaugh, on the other hand, is the leader of the Republican Party and the one to whom all Republicans must genuflect on a daily basis. Not just Republican politicians, who wouldn't last two seconds without the blessings of the fat, rupulsive pill-head, but even those on this forum.

    Actually the 'hypocritical' part has little if anything to do with the 'media figures'...

    In my opinion, the bulk of his ideology falls squarely to the left, he can call himself what he wants, however, I think you and I can agree, he doesn't fall in the libertarian sphere based on actions and statements. I would go one further and say given his donation to Obama's super pac of a million dollars, and speaking at an alabama democratic convention, a casual observer would correctly assume, he was, left wing.

    nothing wrong with that, but, no objective person could accept his claim that of all things, he is a "libertarian".
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us
