Bill Maher is on HBO which does not have ‘advertisers’, only cable outlets which send money. So how do you deal with rudeness that is vile?
Rush Limbaugh was a disgusting figure in his attack on Fluke.
Bill Maher actually defended Rush Limbaugh’s right to say what he said — First Amendment, etc — but then noted that he had called Palin a name just as vile, but luckily he was cable and not FCC-regulated.
Some Maher defenders have claimed that he is a comedian commenting on a public figure. So? He attacked the very essence of womanhood (not Palin but …).
Limbaugh defenders have claimed, and he has claimed, that he is just an entertainer. Hey, isn’t that what Maher is too?
Both men are rude and crude whenever they believe that it will get them a rating bounce.
It is extreme arrogance for Maher to claim that his calling of Palin a c*nt was OK, while Limbaugh’s calling of Fluke a sl*t was not.
There is no excuse for the inexcusable — no matter how damn funny your fans find you.
Limbaugh got what he deserved. Maher deserves a dog pooh outside his door too.
