    You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way: “One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them...

    After decades as a dominant force in talk radio, Rush Limbaugh could be in for his biggest fight yet. But the threat isn't from activist groups who dislike his conservative politics. It is from one of his own: former Republican governor of Arkansas and onetime presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee. Starting April 9, Mr. Huckabee, a Fox News Channel commentator, will go head-to-head with Mr. Limbaugh in a syndicated radio program airing in the noon to 3 p.m. Eastern time, weekday slot.

    The Washington Times affiliated radio program America's Morning News spoke with former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, who is now a managing Director at the Washington D.C. based PR firm SKD Knickerbocker, on Sunday. She refused to answer questions regarding concerns about how much of a role the White House played in Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke's appearance before a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee to testify about Georgetown Law Center's lack of contraception coverage. Ms. Dunn also did not answer questions about if she thought HBO's Bill Maher was out of line when he called former...

Pelosi reported that people at the HBO headquarters in New York had said to her "you can't show this" even though just last week the ran a controversial video showing Mississippi voters saying inflammatory things against the president.

    YOUNGSTOWN State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove conservative talker Rush Limbaugh from Youngstown radio airwaves. Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570). The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control. Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as...

    Two radio stations have dropped The Rush Limbaugh Show from their schedules following the firestorm surrounding his offensive attack on law student Sandra Fluke on his show last week. KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan. Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the...

    Alexandra Pelosi appeared on Real Time tonight with two purposes: to defend the video she filmed of voters in Mississippi that aired on the show last week, and to air a brand-new video that Bill Maher admitted would probably anger liberals in the same way the aforementioned video angered conservatives. For her new video, Pelosi spoke to African-American welfare recipients in New York. There was far less laughter during this piece than the Mississippi one (which Pelosi pointed out after it played), but there were still some revealing moments contained therein. One of the men lined up outside the welfare...

    The mainstream media in Washington, DC is apoplectic after Gov. Sarah Palin backed Andrew Breitbart's project, "The Vetting." In an exclusive article for Breitbart.com entitled "Breitbart Is Here," Palin had endorsed Breitbart's effort to vet Barack Obama, his Republican rivals--and the mainstream media itself: Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart. During the ’08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldn’t be bothered to investigate Barack...

And to repeat a point I made in that same post, for politicos and their apparatchiks, this “debate” is of course 99 percent about partisanship. When asked about Rush’s comments, Romney tersely said, “It’s not the language I would have used.” When asked about Maher this afternoon, though, he unloaded: In an appearance on the Sean Hannity radio show, Romney said, “Frankly, what Bill Maher said, and I finally read the transcripts, I was offended, outraged that a person would...

Because it was a routine where that word came in at just the right moment. Context is very important, (snip) stand-up comedy is the final frontier of free speech.

Burnett brought up Axelrod’s condemnation of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh for having called Georgetown student and activist Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” — a condemnation that proved problematic in light of his decision to appear on Maher’s show given the comedian’s own history of referring to women — mainly, but not solely, conservative women in the public eye, like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann — by derogatory...

    Now that the media feeding frenzy has calmed at least for a bit, it's worth saying that we've missed the whole point on Mizz Sandra Fluke. Fluke is the Georgetown Law School student who testified against the religious right of her school to refuse to pay for contraception because to do so would violate its religious principles. It's titillating -- but irrelevant -- to speculate about Fluke's sexually promiscuity. To try to characterize her as Rush Limbaugh did could be accurate but isn't connected to the political issue at hand. Sandra Fluke is a welfare queen. Remember, back in...

    Like you, I too used to be a "Bible Only" Christian, who would have said, "I only accept it and believe it if it's in the Bible!"    With great regret and contrition, I also have to admit that I too was once very anti-Catholic, like many of you are right now, (and, coincidentally, like the unceasingly prevaricating President B.O. is, the lying foulmouth pervert Bill Maher is, the New York Times is, Muslims are, Communists are, atheists are, the main-stream-media in general is, anti-Catholic phony Catholics like Pelosi/Sebelius/Biden/Kerry/Kennedys/etc. are, democrats (in general) are, and many others ALSO are right...
  • Despite Bill Maher’s crude comments, Dem PAC doesn’t have to return comedian’s $1M: Schumer

    Sen. Chuck Schumer says President Obama’s super PAC doesn’t need to give back the $1 million it got from comedian Bill Maher — even if he’s made crude comments about women. * * * “I mean, look, the bottom line is that Rush Limbaugh’s comments were just nasty and directed at a particular young woman who had a particular point of view and was expressing herself. Bill Maher is a comedian. It’s much different. Rush Limbaugh has tremendous weight in the Republican Party. No one will rebut him. Bill Maher’s a comedian who's on at 11 o’clock at night but...
  • Schumer: No Need to Return Maher’s $1M, ‘He’s a Comedian’

    03/11/2012 10:26:20 PM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 55 replies
    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday dismissed calls for a pro-President Barack Obama super PAC to return comedian Bill Maher’s $1 million donation following accusations of sexism over comments he’s made about 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and other women. The issue has received particular attention in the wake of a video from a pro-conservative women group calling out the “double standard” in the way Maher and Rush Limbaugh’s “slut” comment have been treated. Asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether Maher’s money should be returned, Schumer said no. “The bottom line is that Rush Limbaugh’s comments were just nasty...

    Lee website, youtube ^ | 3-2012 | dfu
    (202) 225-3816 A few days ago, a few congresswomen were confronted on film and asked to condemn the remarks of Bill Maher, who called Sarah Palin a c*nt and dumb tw*t. I've see three with the deer in the headlights look - Pelosi, Schakowsky, and Jackson Lee. None of them would make a comment. How difficult is that? The question is significant, since Maher has given a million bucks to the Obama SuperPac. How can Obama keep the money? I had to get it from Jackson Lee's office, so I made the call. The guy who answered knew nothing of...
  • Will Mike Huckabee’s New Radio Show Hurt Rush Limbaugh’s Numbers?

    Mike Huckabee is expanding his media reach to a radio program scheduled to start airing in April. However, the show is scheduled to be in direct competition with none other than Rush Limbaugh. In a column for The Daily Beast today, David Frum thinks Huckabee’s new show might end up hurting Limbaugh’s numbers, and gave some insight into the reasons surrounding decisions by advertisers to leave Limbaugh’s program. Last month, Huckabee announced he would be doing the radio show for Cumulus Media Networks, while continuing to work the weekend shift on his Fox News show, Huckabee. His show has been...

    The Jewish Congressman who became the darling of the left wing of the Democratic party but not so much with his district (he served only one term), who, in 2009, defined the Republican’s idea of health care plan as, “Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly,” may require some serious health care himself. According to WESH-TV2, last Saturday in Orlando, Fla., the former Florida Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson ran a red light with his car, a Mercedes (now, is that a car a nice Jewish boy should be driving?) and smashed into a public transit bus....

    With Tuesday’s Alabama and Mississippi primaries on the horizon, Bill Maher sent filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi to the heart of Mississippi to interview some prospective voters, and what she found was some scary footage– of voters who feared President Obama was a “Muslim” and promising “the South will rise again.” The panel, including Jon Hamm and Michael Steele, analyzed the situation and, after making a few jokes about the subject’s teeth, argued that education was the only solution to their poverty. With two caveats– that “all these people knew they were going to be on this show and they all think...

    Newsmax Jane Fonda, Steinem Want Rush Fired Sunday, March 11, 2012 12:24 PM By: Newsmax Wires Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem, two icons of the liberal feminist establishment, are taking aim at Rush Limbaugh in a bid to end the career of America’s most popular conservative talk show host. In an op-ed written for CNN on their website, the two, joined by Robin Morgan, liken Limbaugh to Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels because, they say, he labels all of his enemies as “sub-human.” “Limbaugh doesn't just call people names,” they write. “He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the...

    Last week, SHEPac released a video calling on President Obama's re-election campaign to give back a $1 million check written by "comedian" Bill Maher. Despite Maher's disgusting remarks, NOW (National Organization for Women) President Terry O'Neill, who claims to stand up for women, wants President Obama to be re-elected and doesn't think he should return Maher's check. Anything to keep abortion "safe and rare," right?
  • Bill Maher: Santorum homeschools his kids. He wants them locked up in his “Christian madrassa”

    How very open-minded and reasonable it was of Bill Maher to deliver this little riff on the Santorums' decision to homeschool their children (h/t NewsBusters):CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Let’s not even get into his use of the term “madrassa,” which refers to an Islamic seminary that teaches mostly Islamic subjects. Suffice it to say anyone concerned about brainwashing should worry less about Rick Santorum’s children and more about subjugated women and children in the Middle East.Instead, let’s focus on the “comedian’s” own appalling lack of knowledge. What Bill Maher doesn’t know about homeschooling could fill a book he’d...

    I'm writing this from Australia, so, if I'm not quite up to speed on recent events in the United States, bear with me — the telegraph updates are a bit slow here in the bush. As I understand it, Sandra Fluke is a young coed who attends Georgetown Law, and recently testified before Congress. Oh, wait, no. Update: It wasn't a Congressional hearing; the Democrats just got it up to look like one, like summer stock, with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid doing the show right here in the barn, and providing a cardboard set for the world premiere of...

    The Democrats thought they had a great distraction from the economic issues that bedevil most Americans in the form of 30-year-old activist Sandra Fluke. Rush Limbaugh foolishly (as he later acknowledged) called her a “slut” and a “prostitute” in the course of ridiculing, entirely properly, her very silly claim that the federal government should force all employers to pay for their female employees’ contraception–I never did figure out whether the plan extended to buying male employees condoms and vasectomies–regardless of whether either the employers or employees prefer such benefits to cash compensation. Ms. Fluke’s theory, really, was so stupid as...
