It’s well known that Maher’s a crack whore but I thought that Letterman died years ago.

Bill Maher, Letterman, and Louis C.K are all disgraces to the human race. They have nothing of substance to say, they can’t have an actual conversation with people, so instead they just smear and trash people, its all they know how to do because they can’t defend their radical left wing agenda

Maher is a stinking, rotting piece of flesh. Arizona buzzards wouldn’t even go near him. Letterman is just dumb and “slow”. Your typical “sheeple” going along with the crowd as directed by his massas down at the DNC. IMHO.

But..don’t you love the ingenuity of the conservatives USING Maher and Letterman to raise money? the comments on the video are so offensive to conservative women that it should arouse anger from any normal person. I hope the donations pour in..making fools of Maher and Letterman

Letterman is still alive? I guess that's why I read FR, I didn't know that.

If the libtards want to take down Rush then someone on our side should be fighting to take down Letterman and Maher. Opps I forgot the right plays nice and is expected to reach across the aisle and make compromise!!!

When this flap started with Rush someone here on FR reminded the thread of Letterman’s joke about then 14 year old Willow Palin getting “knocked up” by Alex Rodriquez.

I went viral with it because I thought it was abhorrent enough that not even a lib could excuse the behavior.

Okay here is a lib response and I am not making this up. Willow and Bristol Palin should be joked about like this because they are poster children for abstinance.

I wrote back, “Good God woman she was a 14 year old girl. The joke was about statutatory rape.”

The lib response. “Well okay, they should joke about kids but Rush Limbaugh has really said some bad stuff about women.”

Another lib just took the high road, cussed me out and called Ann Coulter a cunt.

Mostly, my responses were either ignored or glossed over.

The hate on the left is a lot worse that I believe most of us realize. It’s a hate that is unable to see both sides of an argument and seeks to destroy the person totally.

I just watched the video and was furious over Maher’s comments on Sarah’s baby, Trig. He should be kicked off the air so fast his head would spin and it wouldnt be from an exorcism

She·PAC Calls on Bill Burton and the Obama Super PAC to Denounce Misogynist Bill Maher

MEDIA ADVISORY

March 7, 2012

As recently as March 1st Bill Burton, cofounder of Priorities USA Action SuperPAC, was promoting the views of a donor who referred to women in violent, hateful and derogatory ways. Today, we call on Mr. Burton to follow President Obama’s lead and reject this language and messenger. Please see full text of the letter below.

Dear Mr. Burton:

Having watched President Obama’s press conference yesterday afternoon we find ourselves in agreement with him regarding the inflammatory issues that have arisen in the media. We are sure we can all agree we have arrived at what the President might call a “teachable moment”.

We were pleased to see Rush Limbaugh apologize for his incredibly unkind and insensitive remarks towards women during his recent radio broadcast. These types of remarks towards women have no place in public discourse – they are wrong, and offensive.

It was an important gesture that President Obama approved the time in his schedule to place a call to the woman to whom the offensive remarks were directed. As parents of daughters ourselves, we were proud when we heard him say he took a personal stand on this issue with the hopes of always allowing his daughters the ability to have their own beliefs in the future. President Obama said, “One of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on.”

President Obama has categorically condemned this sort of language against any woman. We are calling on you today to put the President’s words to action by condemning the equally egregious and despicable behavior of HBO talk show host Bill Maher. Mr. Maher has a history of attacking women and recently attacked a host of women including a specifically violent attack at one woman who regularly, as the President says, “engages in the issues she cares about” and is a mother of three daughters and grandmother.

Mr. Maher, who disagrees with Sarah Palin’s politics, has called her a litany of adjectives inappropriate to repeat in any setting and are of the most derogatory of terms reserved for only violent verbal hate crimes against women. We understand that he has donated $1 million dollars of his personal money paid to him through various businesses that thrive on the ratings of his hate speech to your Priorities USA Action to aid in your efforts to re-elect President Obama.

President Obama eloquently stated today in his press conference that, “all decent folks can agree that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse.”

We are certain you agree with him, as do we that these types of remarks have no place in our society and the people that unapologetically make them must not be allowed to purchase a seat at the table of public discourse. Therefore, we are calling on Priorities USA Action and you to live up to the standard set by President Obama and take Mr. Maher’s million dollars and pay it forward.

Prove to American’s that your group is run by “decent folks” that President Obama speaks of. Donate this money to a charity of your choosing that focuses on supporting abused women and children.

We look forward to your action and joining with the President in ending hate speech against women.

Respectfully,

Teri Christoph, Co-Chair of ShePAC
Suzanne Haik Terrell, Co-Chair of ShePAC
Tim Crawford, Treasurer of ShePAC

Anyone else get a robocall from something called “Women of the 99%” telling them to call their congresscritter and demand that they stop Rush Limbaugh?

Bill Maher wears dentures...makes it more comfortable for his partners. Bill is so insecure of his ugliness, he hides behind political issues that he really doesn’t have a clue of. He’s a comedian...Andrew Dice Clay like. Hey Bill...that tiny dick of yours is making you money, so stick with it pal.

I doubt they can be shamed into it, they have no shame. But if the Obama campaign thinks this hurts them with women voters, they’ll be all over Bill Burton to get rid of the money. If ShePac keeps the pressure on, it may just work!

You are so right but America is made of numerous low lifes that follow scum like Maher, Rosie, The View, Letterman, etc.
On the good side..remember when Air America tried to counter Rush and other conservative radio hosts? they used Fonda, Whoppi, Al Franken and went belly up.

I don’t think he was in Nam. His type didn’t usually survive for one reason or another.
