CHICAGO -- While slamming Mitt Romney for not standing up to the “strident voices” on his side, a top Obama advisor is planning to spend some quality time with one on his own, The Daily has learned.

David Axelrod, President Obama's senior campaign strategist, is scheduled to appear on Bill Maher's late-night talk show within the next few weeks, according to Kelley Carville, an HBO spokesman.

As the controversy over Rush Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke continued, a former Obama White House official today joined Republicans in pointing out that Maher, who recently donated $1 million to a pro-Obama super PAC, has a history of his misogynistic slurs.

Last year, he was rebuked by the National Organization for Women for calling Sarah Palin a "dumb tw*t."

“palin is right to point out that bill maher has said some pretty disgusting things about women, comedian or not. they are rush like,” Austan Goolsbee, the former chairman of President Obama’s Council on Economic Advisors, and currently a professor at the University of Chicago, tweeted.

After Obama spoke with Fluke, the Georgetown University Law Student called a “slut” and “prostitute” by Limbaugh, Palin challenged Priorities USA to return Maher’s donation.

"Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters. For the sake of everyone's daughter, why doesn't his super PAC return the $1 million he got from a rabid misogynist?," Palin wrote Tuesday on her Facebook page.

In a conference call with reporters today, Axelrod invoked Limbaugh on several occasions.

“He’s going to continue to lose independent voters when he walks away from issues like the one involving Rush Limbaugh last week, where he essentially refused to comment on what was a really egregious set of comments by Limbaugh,” Axelrod said.

Could it be that one reason for there not being a major kerfuffle over the vile language coming from the leftist "entertainers" is that most people didn't hear what these kooks say?

Really......how many people actually stay up and watch an ugly, vile little troll on some little obscure cable tv program? The people who watch such a program are probably as vile and ugly as the show host....so they haven't any idea that they are even watching nasty stuff...or don't care. The MSM are certainly not going to point any of this stuff out since it is their people who are in the audience.

20 million people a day listen to Limbaugh, so everybody hears about it, either directly or by "word of mouth".

It is a numbers game....if the vile, ugly little troll had 20 million viewers, so that more people hear the vileness...things just may be different....

...or not.

What world is this moron living in. Limbaugh apologized for said comments, but Axelrod refuses to acknowledge it apparently.
