    So here's the deal - Those who pidgeonhole people as Liberal, Conservative, or Libertarian, without looking at the issue at hand, and using a little gray matter to do a little critical thinking, are either being shallow, intellectually lazy, or just plain dishonest. It's easy to attack someone via labels, but it requires a little thinking ability to debate an issue. Unfortunately, too many people have become intellectually lazy, as well as dishonest, and don't give a damn about debating, only attacking others.

    OK, I will now put on my flame proof suit.

    Ive done a search of your messages and for some reason have never found ANYTHING from you condemning Mr Maher or Obama for accepting his money because he used such terrible and offensive language.

    Bill Maher...is a comedian.

    Rush Limbaugh, is a huge force in American Conservative politics. He is not a comedian.

    comparing Bill Maher to Rush Limbaugh, is pretty ****ing stupid.

    Whether he is a 'text book liberal' is irrelevant. What IS relevant is he has used the same language and far worse and was never attacked by the people that have tripped over each other to attack Limbaugh. Maher...Limbaugh...ANYONE...they are free to use whatever language and descriptors they see fit to use. Who they 'are' is already well known.

    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.
    Well, I can't speak for anyone else but I've never denied that I have partisan or even hackish tendencies. If Fluke gave convincing, well articulated reasons for her position, than nothing anyone says can make a fool out of her, only she has that power. I also think, though, folks have a right to decide for themselves if her arguments are convincing and it's not really fair to say that disagreeing with her makes someone a hack. I don't think anyone means to defend Rush's comments, heck, Rush doesn't defend his comments, but I think people would just like to see some parity. If what Rush said was wrong and worthy of outrage, then it's wrong for anyone to say it (or things like it). Otherwise, I'd prefer people be honest that the problem they have with Rush is not what he said, but who he is.

    I have tripped over people to attack Limbaugh. I have also tripped over people to attack Maher. I think they are both, whether Liberal or Conservative, bloviated windbags. But thank you for your post, because you just proved, in your own words, my last post about pidgeonholing people.

    Bill Maher hosts a politically driven talk show and has since 2003. The President s adviser is an upcoming guest. He has hosted politically driven shows since the 90's. He and Limbaugh are precisely the same person with regard to job description and format. That you draw that as your distinction and excuse is comical.

    Still waiting...

    Do you have a link for it though? I am interested because it does sound pretty funny.
