Is there some reason why Hillary Clinton was held libel in the press by right wing media for what her husband did?

I don't want anyone to feed me;
besides, breast milk is much too sweet.

HBO is a pay service running through private cable and satellite subscriptions. Radio is a limited public resource which anyone hear for free, and by law is regulated "in the public interest" by the FCC, including Obscenity, Indecency and Profanity. Radio is also paid for by advertisers, not the audience. It's completely different by nature of the medium.
The words sl-t and prostitute are not profanities. C*nt is! What is the matter with libs!

Rush apologized, Maher never would.

I see you edited your post before I hit "quote," but in response to what you originally said - at least Bill Maher has a backbone, and stands by his opinions & actions. Aren't you guys always saying people should have the cajones to stand by what they say? I actually would have respected Rush more for standing behind his comments, rather than issuing some insincere faux apology to keep his sponsors happy.

Not that I care either way, since Rush is a blowhard who has no significance to my life... or anyone else's for that matter.



I haven't read the whole transcript yet, but wasn't that $3000 in reference to her friend, who uses the birth control for a medical condition? And didn't that figure include lab work and office visits to get the prescription? With the exception of condoms (and maybe the sponge, if that still exists), birth control requires a doctor's visit in order to get your scrip - and in the cases where it's being used for medical conditions, they also require labwork in addition to frequent check ups. All of that stuff costs money, even if you have insurance!



"Bill Maher has a backbone"


I'll wait for the X-rays on that one.



I've attempted to watch his show and I have to admit, I just don't get it.

To me it seems like the Daily Show only without the balance of opinion and careful fact checking.



As for Rush's sponsors, fifteen million weekly listeners will not be ignored.

Sl*t is no different than the word ni**er. Women use it in terms of endearment but as soon as someone other that the special interest group uses it it's game on, a war, have you.

Oh doesn't he now? When he's peddling his wares winding up morons to use you for target practice you might think otherwise.

When nation of Islam or KKK animate themselves to incite sedition, hatred & violence on huge swaths of the population, that's not innocent. Neither is the career of misogyny Rush has made for himself. No one wants to see it because it's inflicted on women. Those human beings living in nomans land since this nation started. Bull sh*t.

Not women who have respect for themselves and who are in fact NOT sl*ts.

I'd rather not keep the company of male sl*ts, or female sl*ts, or n*ggers, whether self identified, or apparent in their behavior. They certainly do not represent me now or ever. Nor are they worthy of any office of import/ authority. EVER. I don't care what color they are, what gender, what creed, or any such trivial nonsense.

Your the one who constantly belittles men and you don't see the problem Hillary pretty much told the world that her man can chase all the women he wants just don't get caught and he did. Not once, not twice, at least three women that had the guts to come forward and claim long term affairs. The press has barely touched on this issue with their King Clinton, he's still seen as some honorable man.

There are equalily offensive terms for all people. If I call Rush a motherf*cker, am I sexist? No. Rude and out of line? Probably.

But the word sl*t, which means something else entirely, implies that women should be ashamed for having sex. There's no equivalent word for shaming men.

Because, men don't get shamed for it. Until women can do what half the population does with the same impunity, then in that arena, we aren't equal.


Talk about living in 1970!

Just curious...do you live next to Meatwad, Shakezilla and Frylock?

Being a male **** is just as bad, and boinkin' a bunch of bimbos is nothing to be proud of in 2012.

Take off the gold chain and button up the shirt. No one wants to see the hair salad.
