Now in a different thread you claim he is just an entertainer. So what is it Pete? or is it whatever fits your argument at the time?
We are comparing what he claims he is to what Maher claims Maher is. Maher admits he is a comedian. Limbaugh claims to be a serious political commentator. I think he is an entertainer/comedian.

Rush is the one of the leaders of the GOP/Teabaggers, he is their Pied Piper. Maher is not trying to lead the Dems, he is rough on them too. Yeah my mother married my father and died 5 years ago, thanks for asking and go F yourself.
You sure as hell can dish it out, however you cannot take it. BTW, my father died 25 years ago, my condolences...

Yes, I've seen his show, I find it predictable, yet over the top and mostly stupid. He loses me when he slams religious people by calling them weak, simple minded sheep. Most religious people I know are strong, hard working, successful people. I also think he tries too hard to be clever and edgy. JMHO

Since when is Rush the leader of the GOP??
Because you said so?
No different than saying Bill Maher, and Janeanne Garafalo are the leaders of the democratic party.
Or, maybe, Joe McGinness could be the leader of the democratic party.
He rented that house next door to the Palins, and has pictures of their children that he took while being a peeping tom pervert.
He's Your spokesperson, and he should be in jail!!
You continue to trash Palin's daughter, but you support the guy sneaking around peeping in her daughters windows.
Good thinking!

He is after all a comedian and political satirist, always on the edge. He was making a point here not being racist. The GOP/Teabaggers don't know racism when they see it. A candidate is critical of the Civil Rights laws prohibiting discrimination in privately owned public accomodations and they don't see any racism. A comedian calls for some good old fashioned hip hop style outrage from the first black president toward BP and the Teabaggers want to the comedian's scalp.
No Conservative or Republican could possibly say it and keep their job.. You know it. I know it. We all know it. Spin that!

I did not say Maher was fair and balanced, he is obviously not and I don't think he is trying to be. He is not pretending to be a news show, he is a comedian and satirist. He is not claiming to be the winner of Excellence In Broadcasting awards. Limabaugh is not claiming to be a comedian, he claims he is a serious commentator. Olberman calls him a comedian to insult him. So if you want the two of them to be judged by the same standards are we all going to agree that Limbaugh is not a serious political commentator and is really a comedian. Was he ever at the Grizzly Den?
What Maher does is try and shock people into actually thinking. What results most though is reactions, not thinking.

Not too much different than Imus, the man whom the left did their best to castrate.
Thanks for being consistent again.

My condolences to you too, I just thought the crack at my mother was a cheap shot but I can understand that w/o knowing the details it was just a generic shot. I have never involved my mother in any discussion here that I can recall, at least on politics. I take that back I probably did relate the story about how revolted she was after seeing Michael Moores movie on Iraq. The video of the soldier's playing with the old guys "thing" while he was laying on a stretcher was the last straw, a devoted foe of abortion became anti Bush/Cheney. In any event I don't think I have attacked any other posters parents or children etc. I think some folks have made their kids fair game like Palin for reasons previously discussed and I recognize that is a subject matter of some controversy.

I suggest that we just remember our deceased in our own way, bury the hatchet, unless that is politically inappropriate now, and move one. My father died 10 years ago Memorial Day weekend, normally I let these things roll off my back like water off a duck, this was not one of those times.

No it was a cheap shot, designed to get you to see "is that tramp married yet" as a cheap shot to Sarah Palin's daughter. You tell people to go F themselves all of the time, almost daily, if they have a point that doesn't fall into your world view. You are so much better when you debate with your view and that was what I was trying to get you to see.

It bothered you... what do you think it does to young women who are in the same predicament as Bristol Palin, who read this board??? I don't know if you are married, but is every girl you have been with "a tramp", because she had sex with you?

BTW, I don't think that if someone runs for office, puts their children "out there". It's the media who attacks. Look at Chelsea Clinton. They left her alone. The media wanted exploit Sarah's daughter as a news story. What? A teenage girl whose family is conservative had sex and got pregnant? That is news? News flash, Conservatives like sex too!! It's so immature and petty. For some reason, the media looks the other way if a teen kills her baby, however if they actually allow the baby to live, that is bad? How insane is that?

Palin made her daughter fair game. She did NOT have to hold a press conference and announce she was pregnant. The rumor that the Downs kid was not Palin's was not a big problem for her. My parents and your have nothing to do with any of this.

It is news that a candidate for VP who claims that abstinence only sex ed is effective when we all know it is not, has an abstinence only sex ed failure under her own roof. That is news. A teen having a legal abortion is no more news than you having your tonsils out. Your lying POS hero Limbaugh sure thought his pill shopping medical records were private.

That tramp married yet?

maher is provocateur of the same ilk as richard prior and nothing more.
the prez, like bush, is an incompetent, bourgeoisie elitist regardless of his party affiliation or race. hence, fair game for all those that want to charactuerize him in a more sterotypical fashion.
it's all about publicity folks.
step out of your undies and untwist them. you'll feel much better..
