    A. Rush Limbaugh using a naughty word to describe a 30 year old woman who wants to force Christians to buy her birth control so that she can have as much consequence-free sex in between classes as she wants

    B. Barack Obama giving churches, hospitals, orphanages, and schools the unconstitutional choice of either covering their employees' abortion and birth control pills (contrary to their religious beliefs) or shutting their doors

    or C. Barack Obama forcing employers to cover abortion pills against their religious convictions while simultaneously cutting health benefits for the military
    Funnily enough I gotta say its a tie. Rush Limbaugh is an idiot and he makes the rest of us conservatives look bad, and obama is well obama...

    anyone who makes that sort of stereotype probably is too. And Rush is no better or no worse than smarmy asswipes like Maher and Stewart (and at least Rush uses his given name)

    Let's be honest... yeah they are. Rush is a conspiracy theorist at best. He's also very angry for no apparent reason. Has anyone ever called him out for wild predictions? My favorite was when he said that republicans are going to lose this election on purpose because they want to win the senate back.

    What a loon.

    If you get your information from a conspiracy theorist then you're probably not too bright. Then again, I am talking about a group of people who think the entire scientific community is in on some giant scam. Too funny.

    I will simply state the obvious...Friday has no place in a forum that hopes for actual debate. I can now guess the result of any thread he enters.

    Immediate Ignore.

    I dont think Rush is a conspiracy theorist, he's just obnoxious and an a-hole. When he says things like the republicans are throwing the election he's not serious just being his typical big mouth self. Also he knows the more rediculous stuff he says the higher his ratings are and thanks to plenty of people who listen just to here what stupid thing he is going to say next he has the #1 radio talk show... go figure.

    Ok fair enough...
    But big difference Bill Maher=comedian
    Rush=Talk show radio host and one of the poster boys for the republican party
    Remember when Michael Steele called Rush Limbaugh "just an entertainer" and it seemed like the gods of the right wing came down on Steele just slamming him because of that comment?
    Now look.. The whole right is just saying, "nahhh he aint nothing but an entertainer"....

    If you won't like someone then don't listen to them.Its that simple.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    True enough, But don't make excuses for his lack of sound logic and his clear lack of class.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: Who is more offensive, Obama or Rush?

    I will answer the OP's question with another question--screw that he called her a whore or slut or whatever did you ever actually listen to the whole broadcast and hear what the guy had to say? There was about a couple dozen other things he should have apologized for.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
