    then why are you condemning folks for calling sponsors to pull their support?

    They both do political satire/commentary shows, the only real difference is the medium. This excuse doesn't pass the common sense test, sorry.

    The search function isn't working properly right now. It won't let me past the first page of results. I suspect you are right though. I can't find any threads started by anyone at the moment though.

    Never make a bet, you are not sure you will win.

    Im not condemning folks for calling sponsors. Im pointing out how hypocritical you are when it comes to your selective outrage. Rush Limbaugh is a radio personality. Bill Maher is a TV personality. On this site there are numerous threads of people losing their mind over the Limbaugh comment. Those same people were deafeningly silent when Maher, a major contributor to the Obama campaign used far worse language. Your selective outrage is what makes you 'that guy'.

    We'll be hearing stories of liberals jumping off buildings now, and millions of liberal heads just exploded.



    Good luck with your Rush-hatefest guys.


    I think he is worried because he has said a lot of vile **** and if Rush can get into trouble for calling a I want others to pay for my birth control advocate a slut then he can most certainly get into trouble for all the stuff he has said.He may be on HBO but people can most certainly boycott HBO because of him.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    either way. this whole thing is like the middle east. "your tribe wronged my tribe at some time in the distant past i must take revenge because my tribe is always perfect" all the while never recognizing that people are individuals. its so sad that almost nobody here seems to have the ability to think beyond groups and pointless stereotypes.

    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.
    Why is this a partisan issue ??? Are you f'ing kidding me??? This entire charade has been nothing but partisan politics.

    She was brought in by the Democrats to blunt the damage they inflicted on themselves by forcing religious institution to provide medications that go against their beliefs. They were taking a huge hit on the issue. When they tried to bring this woman in through the backdoor, Republicans blocked her because she wasn't scheduled to testify. The Dems had their own little hearing so this woman could have her say and of course the media was there like good little lap dogs.

    The Dems threw this woman out there as bait, and like a dumb ass, Limbaugh bit and gave Dems the opening and diversion they were hoping for all along. The talk is not about the first amendment any more, but is about contraception.

    From what I've heard, this woman is not a coed at Georgetown as has been reported. I would be willing to bet that she is simply an activist.

    I agree...they are both political shock jocks. It's their edge that people find entertaining. It wasn't long ago Maher lost his show after saying contraversial things after 9/11.

    I don't know where this has turned from a guy saying vile things to a law student. We're basically desensitized to vulgar commentary on public officials after hearing it pretty much become the norm. When you turn that vileness onto a private citizens speaking on public policy it's not kosher. We havent' thrown civility that far out yet.

    It's the only reason Rush is getting the hammer on this episode and the fact that Maher said something at an extremely sensitive time is the reason he got the hammer. Both of them don't want accountability for what they say....so of course they would defend each other.
