    [...] These are just a few samples from the arsenal of degrading language Limbaugh deploys on women, people of color, lesbians and gays, immigrants, the disabled, the elderly, Muslims, Jews, veterans, environmentalists and so forth. Limbaugh doesn't just call people names. He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the sophisticated propagandist Josef Goebbels, he creates rhetorical frames -- and the bigger the lie the more effective -- inciting listeners to view people they disagree with as sub-humans. His longtime favorite term for women, "femi-nazi," doesn't even raise eyebrows anymore, an example of how rhetoric spreads when unchallenged by...

    A group calling itself "The Women of the 99 Percent" is making robocalls across the United States in an attempt to link Republican members of the House of Representatives to "the war on women led by Rush Limbaugh".

    Sarah Palin is called the c word and the t word by Bill Maher. Maher gives a million dollars to Obama's SuperPac. Jackson Lee and Jan Schakowsky were given the opportunity to condemn the horrible comments, but they refused. Since the words are apparently not offensive to the congresswomen, they should enjoy singing along. TURN ON YOUR SPEAKERS AND HAVE FUN

    Prior to her statements to congressional Democrats, did Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke have any prior connection to Obama administration officials? Did the congresswomen who pushed Flukeís testimony coordinate with a marketing and polling outfit that recently conducted a survey to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue? According to some reports, it was Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., who pushed for Flukeís testimony. Maloney also initiated the call for Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for his on-air derogatory remark about Fluke, according to the Daily Beast. Maloney is tied to a progressive pollster, Celinda Lake,...

On HBO's Real Time, host Bill Maher surprisingly said of the protesters, "As I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Like, you know what - get a job...Now it's just a bunch of [d-bags] who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution" (video follows with transcript and commentary, vulgarity warning): BILL MAHER: Let me ask you about another occupation, because this is - and you would be good on...

    Itís no secret that Republican candidate Ron Paul is a favorite among liberal talk show hosts, but tonight Bill Maher vigorously defended the libertarianís foreign policy positions and admitted they were more aligned with his own rather than President Obama. Maher fought with not just the panelists, but his own audience on this issue, dismissing most of them as ďbrainwashed liberalsĒ unwilling to give Paul credit for taking a more progressive position on foreign issues than the president. Maher admitted that Paul is the only Republican candidate who can get him to ďrise out of my chair and applaud.Ē And...

    Bill Maher has run afoul of religious conservatives yet again, after a Christmas Eve tweet the comedian sent about overtly religious Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Following a 40-14 Broncos' loss to the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, Maher tweeted, "Wow, Jesus just ... #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler 'Hey, Buffalo's killing them'. (Adult language has been removed from the Tweet.) Predictably, the dig from the atheist comedian didn't go over well with Christians. Fox Business' "Follow the Money" host Eric Bolling got things rolling with his Twitter response: "Bill Maher...

    Best of luck to Tim Tebow and the Broncos against the Patriots this afternoon. Watching liberalsí heads explode when Tebow succeeds is even more entertaining than his stunning performances on the football field. Considering all the thugs and cutthroats who can be found in professional sports, why do they hate a decent guy like Tim Tebow? Itís simple: because they are moonbats and Tebow is good. Bill Maher, arguably the vilest creature ever to slither out of the entertainment establishment, spews Tebow hatred in the context of lefty ideology:

    Yes, you read that right. Bill Maher, after the mention of Herman Cainís lead over Romney, says Romney is the only thing standing between us and the rise of the apes. This comment was made during an interview given by George Stephanopoulos on ABCís Good Morning America, Monday morning.
