    What Bill Maher said was really bad too, for sure. But the biggest difference here is not between Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh, but between Sarah (with an h) and Sandra. Sarah is a powerful public political figure. Sandra is a private citizen speaking out on an issue that affects many women.

    It’s doesn’t make what Maher said any less wrong. But we do have to take into account the context of these issues if we are doing a comparison of the situations.

    Where are all of Rush’s dittoheads who hang on his every word? Are Alex and Ricky the only one’s? Maybe old Rush isn’t as popular as people have been lead to believe?

    uh, for the record, i’m not defending Rush or want to be in anyway associated with him. All I was saying that yeah, a liberal can say dumb/bad things I don’t agree with, but that’s beside the point because Rush’s comment was directed at a private citizen and that is a no-no.
