    Maher and limbaugh both do satire and are political commentators. Consistancy please.

    he crosses that line when he pledges $1 million to Obama, and has a show where he considers himself a political commentator. That round table he holds is not a skit.

    The attempt to hide behind the comedy thing is laughable.

    Limbaugh is not. He's neither funny or informative.
    Wow, you don't find Rush funny or informative...Thanks for the news flash that a hard left progressive liberal doesn't like a conservative talk show host....Couldn't have seen that one...whew.

    Look, when I have heard Rush's show, he has parody's, Jokes, skits....mixed in with his commentary....Are you the arbiter of comedy?

    He claims he's a source of truth.
    With his tongue firmly in his cheek....He also says that he defeats libs with half his brain tied behind his back...You don't think he cuts his brain out do you?

    Oh, BTW, Guess who else says he is a source of truth on the radio? Thom Hartmann....Ever heard of him? Look it up.

    He's a mean spirited horse's ass.
    Really? Want to hear a real mean spirited horses ass? google Mike Malloy.


    And you expect to be taken seriously?
    Come on man, it's an internet message board...Lighten up.

    Limbaugh does not do satire. He is not a comedian. He is a bitter man who lives to spew insults and hatred towards those he disagrees with. And because that is legal in the US he has to be allowed to do that. But sponsors also have the right not to support such a bitter person who spews insults at people he disagrees with.

    Maher is a comedian, a biased commedian who makes inappropriate comments/is a potty mouth. He is left wing, foul mouthed, opinionated, he insults people in a sarcastic way and he sometimes might go to far.

    That however is nothing like what Limbaugh does.

    It is because of the timing. Presidential election coming up, HUGE changes or attempted changes in healthcare and backlashes coming from both sides. (I hate saying "both sides" because there are more than 2). The "lefties" are pushing the healthcare reform while "righties" are also pushing for their own changes on the state level with all the personhood and ultrasound bills (there are a lot). All these changes go to core of the reasons our government was set up like it is and why we are provided rights through the Constitution. It addresses religion, free speech, the 10th, 14th etc. amendments and everybody is freaking out. Everyone has a favorite right to stick up for (even if they don't verbalize it) and the coming changes can affect everybody.

    What issues are important to you? Right now I would say jobs, the infrastructure of the country, education and situations like we have in Detroit -- a whole city almost gone --poof-, there are towns that are disappearing in a similar manner, we're still in Afghanistan and instead of talking about these issues we're arguing about calling people names, my uterus and people's right to wear a friggin cross around their neck while they're at work. I am a fierce supporter of the First amendment and privacy issues, but lets put it on the back burner for a minute.

    OMG OMG OMG! The gay couple next door got artificially inseminated, had some genetic testing done, found out the fetus had a serious health problem that would cause it to die within weeks of being born, had an abortion and had a Wiccan ceremony to mourn! Not to mention they don't pick up the dog poo when they go for a walk!

    Really? Really? Let's talk about that instead of foreclosures, unemployment, transportation (why don't we have bullet trains) and the military efforts. It is because the gay couple with all issues I mentioned above gets peoples FEELINGS involved and the second set of problems requires independent THOUGHT.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to go off on you nathan, that was a generalized rant. Please excuse me while I go pick up some doggie doo before my neighbors report me.

    "You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Because, if we have to pay for a woman to have sex, we should get the video. This is entirely different from saying someone has already made a video. Again, I find it humorous. I like satire. If you are the type to not understand satire, you are free to be properly offended.

    If we were being forced to pay for condoms for men, I would assume he would say the same thing. However, in that case I would be much less likely to watch the resulting evidence. I can't speak for Rush or you.

    Sounds like you are completely ignorant of his show.... Limbaughs show uses absurdity, satire, and pompous humor, just like maher, different format, same outcome.
