Well goddamn, what a relief this thread is. I was fearful that we may have a few hours without slutgate.

Yes, using foul language in a few jokes about a politician is exactly the same as a ranting for three days about how some law student is a slut and making up details about her sex life.

How about we reserve calling women sluts, whores and prostitutes for only when they are actual sluts, whores or prostitutes, mmkay?

This is funnier than most wing-nut spin. Hopefully Rush will be as insignificant to the Republican party as Maher is to the Democratic soon. Probably not, even though it is a clear case of libel, but one can hope.

I don't think there has been so much concerted effort to push Bill Maher into the spotlight since Politically Incorrect got cancelled after 9/11.

I have literally seen or heard his name dragged into this debate 50 times in the last 24 hours.

FTA:

Calling Limbaugh out for his despicable attack would have been a cheap and easy way to repair some of the damage done by the Party's recent fumbling of women's issues, and would not even have required them to reverse position on any policy matters. How hard is it to say, "No matter your political beliefs, it is absolutely reprehensible to attack women in this fashion. Rush Limbaugh should apologize."

Er... no. Only the party faithful are paying attention at this point, and they would not take kindly to their Lord and Savior being slighted in any way shape or form.

Even during the general election, these guys are chained to their wingnut base and they know it. Any republican who dares challenge Limbaugh as the head of their party would be forced to apologize within 24 hours.

I'll admit that Stewart is a major political voice for the left; sad as that sounds it is true. "Serious commentators" run clips of him all the time as a jumping off point for political segments.

However, he is respected, rather than feared, by the democratic party.

Ok, let's get a few things straight:

1) I am rather anti-right-wing
2) I like and watch Bill Maher
3) My wife refuses to and dislikes that I do
4) Because he bashes women on his show much more than rarely
5) fark Rush Limbaugh, that fetid pedophile heap of Santorum
6) Yes, Rush went further than Maher, but that doesn't make Maher right either
7) Yes, I have sand in my mangina, you can lick it out.

I really don't see it like that. I'm sure that Stewart leans to the left but all he really does on his show is play video of the right making asshole hypocrites of themselves and then calls him on it. Is it his fault or does that make him a leftist if the right can't stop being complete and utter douchebags? Stewart doesn't run everything through the spin cycle like Fox News, he simply plays back their own words and calls them out on it.

There's a difference between that and the cartoonist Fox News that makes the news breaks in Starship Troopers look "fair and balanced". If you're pissed about Stewart being too leftist, tell your right wing masters to stop being so Goddamned stupid and easy comedy fodder.

Girls, girls stop the hair-pulling. The reason Rush and BIll have voices and perhaps a bit of influence is because you wallowing-in-the-mud-wrestling gals give them a stage. News outlets report politics like ESPN reports the Superbowl. Politics = sporting event = viewers = $$$.

So untwist your knickers and STFU so we can have a serious debate on, say, employment, national debt or the Supreme Court.

Don't be so sure. The big money donors are squandering cash on this primary that is now going to go until freaking April at least. With the candidacy up in the air, local races aren't going to receive as much funding. Meanwhile, Obama and the DNC are sitting on increasingly quickly accruing domestic and foreign policy successes.

It's pretty funny how they're framing this as though Rush's repugnance was merely limited to the poor choice of words using the word "slut". It reminds me of rednecks who believe telling a racist joke is perfectly within the acceptable margins as long as you don't use a racial slur.

Honestly I find the use of "slut" and "prostitute" far less offensive then his genuinly creepy suggestion that she should tape herself having sex and make the tape availble for general consumption.
