Bull hockey. I haven't noticed anyone speaking out against Howard Stern, who says offensive things about women & republicans almost every day on his show (which I thoroughly enjoy)... AND he's a liberal New York Jew! Oh noes!! So I guess you're for him, since you didn't speak up when he called Michelle Bachmann a bi*** recently. Right?

So are you implying Republicans don't think everything they do is okay, and never condemn Democrats for anything? Yeah right..... LMAO.

At least, Rush apologized. Where's Bill Maher in all of this??
He apologized too when this ONE comment was said - like five thousand years ago. Funny how you're all bringing this up now, though.

Hypocrisy is just one of many traits of the left. That's how they conduct business.
Pot, meet kettle. And this, my friends, is precisely why I'm an independent... as both Dems and Reps are a bunch of whiny rights-stomping hypocrites.

That's not what the interviewer asked her to do. He asked her to call up Obama and demand that he return political donations. Either you didn't click on your own link or you purposely are trying to mislead other members.
he asked them to make a comment
they did not
you can dress this up all you want
the bottom line is the left is fine with calling women all kinds of vile names
hell it has happened here lots of times
it is only outrage if it is from the left
look who CNN has to speak at the big dinner for broadcasters
a scumb bag who made horrible comments about Palin and WORSE called her baby a retard!!
Oh yeah, these folks are dripping with class!!
I can hardly wait to hear the out cries from all of you folks and to see that
Obama get on TV and decry to the nation about this!!

Being able to call a woman the c word is equality. I don't care about that.

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.

TrashD!ck is the closest I've heard. But, they aren't shamed by it but women definitely try to avoid guys like that.

Apparently so is the right, since many of you seem to be defending Rush like he's your daddy... some even agreeing with his comments about Fluke. Or is this whole Maher deflection just a cover, so you don't have to admit he made an oopsie?

Yup. Same thing.

Yep, both are entertainers. Both said bad things. Only one gets ripped from the left.

How so? I've read plenty of comments from the "left" also stating Bill Maher was wrong... so are you just intentionally ignoring those posts, or is that not enough to please you?

Give it a rest already, or I'm going to start calling you guys out every time a conservative says something hateful - although I do have a job, and that might require taking some time off. LOL

Like I've said before, I don't care who says what, as long as it doesn't get into the realm of slander/libel.

If someone wants to call Palin the c word, that's fine. If someone wants to refer to a woman as a promiscuous harlot, that's fine too.

Freedom of speech.
