Safe Mode: On
Will Obama Super PAC Return Misogynist Bill Maher's Million-Dollar Donation?

CALLS WOMEN TWATS, CUNTS, AND BIMBOS. LIBS STAND AROUND CLUELESS

In response to the media firestorm surrounding Rush Limbaugh's insulting comments about Democratic activist Sandra Fluke (comments for which Limbaughapologized), Kirsten Powers writes about the liberal men who have used misogynistic rhetoric without facing the same outrage. Powers notes that "the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1 million to President Obama’s super PAC." She continues:
Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator. Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job. Maher said of a woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don't show me your tits!” as though a woman feeding her child is trying to flash Maher. (Here’s a way to solve his problem: don’t stare at a strangers’ breasts). Then, his coup de grâce: “And by the way, there is a place where breasts and food do go together. It’s called Hooters!”

Former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, the man who runs Obama's super PAC, did not reply when asked if he will be returning Maher's $1 million donation.

    • @mattb1974 except one is a comedian and the other is a political pundit. And nobody is asking Super PACs to return money Rush Limbaugh has given them. It's his own sponsors that are jumping ship. Same thing happened to Bill Maher before he was on HBO. Rush would do the same but he can't find a cable network that will touch him with a 10 foot poll. That's his own fault.

      His sponsors are jumping ship because of political correctness. Thats fine, I will avoid any business that caves to libtard pressure.

    • @mattb1974 No, his sponsors are jumping ship because they don't want to be associated with an asshole. That's called "Free Market Capitalism" you right wingers defend at all costs until it bites you in the ass. Then it becomes "Political Correctness." Now shut the fuck up and quit trying to have it both ways.

Fluke said 3k over the course of a college career not per year, the pill must be taken all the time regardless of the amount of sex had and finally she also cited a friend who relied on the contraception to control the growth of ovarian cysts when citing the heaviest costs. She also reported a survey t More..

  • I don't think that referring to a public figure who uses her political popularity to make money with things like reality shows as a cunt is nearly as mysoginistic as referring to a law student who testified before congress about the value of healthcare providers providing contraception as a prostitute.

    1. Palin is a public figure. We don't consider calling a male public figure a dick or a cock misandry so calling her a cunt for such behavior doesn't qualify as mysoginistic in my book. The term More..

    • @copperdog3 Oh please. Firstly Rush does not cater to an adult only late night audience as Maher does which is why many of his sponsors decided to pull funding after his outrageous and mysognistic comments. If Maher's audience was even close to reaching Rush's and if Maher was considered anything other than a late night political satirist then his sponsors would have also pulled out faster than a Republican who wants to have sex but doesn't believe in contraception. That's the difference here. N More..

    • @copperdog3 This isn't the "the libs maneuvering for political advantage," it's Right Wing Conservatives stepping in their own shit and them putting their foot in their mouths. Liberals didn't do anything to make Rush say what he did. It was most likely Oxycontin. Am I the only one who noticed how swollen and congested Rush sounded during his rant? Classic synthetic opiate symptoms. He's still using, no question about it.

    • @copperdog3 Well there's a difference in motivation. Had Ms. Fluke been using her public office to gain popularity so that she could make money off of things like a reality television show and someone referred to her as a cunt I wouldn't see their motivation for such a comment as mysoginistic.

    • @Fred Flintstone Or she truly believes that women's healthcare providers should provide contraception because it reduces long term costs by preventing unwanted pregnancies while simultaneously having specific uses for combating medical problems that many women face. But not I'm sure your idea that it's some sort of elaborate left wing conspiracy is a much more valid interpretation.

I have tons of patients in my hospital that I have to explain this to, because they dont wanna get addicted and instead are only takin 500 mg of Tylenol which is just barely taking the edge off of some of their pain.

    • @BigDaddyHarrison You need to get some help. Still, the difference between you and Rush is you don't have a radio show where you've advocated the death penalty for drug addicts in the past only to become one yourself. Rush is an ignorant, hypocritical ass who has been wrong so many times over the years he's become a joke.

    • @stevecore Well technically I wouldn't say I'm addicted I'd say I'm dependent and once my Physical Therapy is complete and I've recovered from the surgery depending on how well I can function I intend to begin a tapering schedule to reduce my dependency but as it is I suffer fairly severe withdrawal symptoms like fatigue, pain, diahrea and irritability if I don't take my meds. I don't get cravings so much so I guess in that sense I'm not an "addict" per se.
