    You cannot pigeon hole the question with bull**** voting options. Not only is Rush more offensive, he is also far more "hackish".
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I disagree

    Rush has absolutely no impact on anything that matters to me

    Obama wants to triple my taxes, put leftwingers on the courts, and drive business out of America

    Rush is a pimple, Obama is AIDS

    That is senseless in the extreme.

    When are you going to actually engage in debate?

    Obviously, the OP.
    And its a very disgusting "argument".
    No vote of course.
    Mr Obama is our President.
    Rush is simply a base, low-life entertainer, at the same level as pro-wrestling.
    This should be in the basement.
    And to the post above..
    I see no point in debating with a fool, particularly one so disrespectful of our President..

    To be more fair, the poll question related to Rush should have been specific, for example, "Rush's comments toward Fluke's testimony" instead of the ambiguous "Rush using a naughty word."

    This is not a serious question. Asking if people disagree with a non-specific "bad word" by Rush (which could include a spectrum of degree that can go from mildly offensive to so extremely offensive it's sexist, racist, bigoted, etc) or very clearly outlined acts by Obama.

    Examples of "Obama nastiness" are given, and if the purpose is to compare, at least one example (to Obama's 2 should be given) of Rush's nastiness should also be given.

    Using current events as the content for comparison would make Rush's comments toward Fluke relevant and appropriate for the poll.

    Duh. The poll was never intended to incite logical debate based on unbiased factual reality. It was meant to incite discord and ill-will. Further drive the populous apart in order to unravel the fabric of American unity. subliminally, I think too many people wearing flag pins on their lapels really hate our nation deep down inside.

    I am reminded of the Star Wars scene when the Emperor was pleading with Luke Skywalker to come over to the dark side and experience the other "force." Some people feed off of angering other people.

    Sometimes, it can be fun so I'm not gonna judge. LOL!

    But Obama is going to raise your taxes so it is all worthwhile. Like you, I have a one track mind.

    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
    I'm not sure but I think you could make this more biased but it would be tough. Let's be clear what's really going on. First, Rush did more than say a naughty word. He's not a little boy who dropped a book on his foot. He attacked a young woman using language that no man should use at any woman. He also suggested that she post sex tapes to the Internet. He did this solely because he disagreed with her. He has every right to disagree and say she wrong all day long, but his behavior was unacceptable. On a side note, I think he has done a great service to this woman and those that agree with her. His terrible behavior has drawn more attention to this issue than her testimony alone would have. He has also helped make this election about women's rights and that will be a disaster for the republicans, but that's another topic.

    Now for the insurance issue. Employers are required to cover birth control, not abortions. Employer provided insurance is a form of salary. An empoloyer is not allowed to determine how you spend your salary. Additionally, birth control is a decision between a woman and her doctor. I certainly don't an employer involved in my medical decisions. Not that this matters really, but people seem to not know or forget that birth control is sometimes perscribed for reasons other than preventing pregnancy. What happens in that instance? Does the woman have to go to her employer and tell them her medical issues so she can get medicine she needs? Even further out on the tangent - should insurance only cover Viagra for married men whose wives are of child bearing age?
