In an interview to air on CNN’s “Out Front with Erin Burnett,” David Axelrod the senior adviser to President Barack Obama makes the arguement that the sexist comments made by radio host Rush Limbaugh and comedian Bill Maher are both distasteful but should be understood differently. That because Rush is the “Political Figure” of the Republican party, and Bill Maher is a comedian. He goes on to say that he in no way endorses the words of either man, but that when you look at the context of the words what Rush said was worse. Others have siad that is debateable because a lot of people feel that Rush was speaking from a political and religious point of view, but Maher was just being vile and mean.

The debate rages on about Rush Limbaugh being fired, or if the Democratic SuperPac should give Maher his 1 million dollar contribution back.

    Bill Maher is NOT A COMEDIAN! He is a liberal asshole who tries to get away with his disgusting remarks by pretending he is funny. I have seen his show and YouTube segments and I nothing he says or does is even close to being humorous.

    By the way, how is he doing on collecting money to construct a monument to the terrorists of 9/11 that he finds to be so brave while calling our military people cowards?

      I think that you probably have to have a certain level of intelligence to understand the humor in his jokes. That’s why you don’t think he’s funny.

    Don’t use ‘liberal’ as an insult – it discredits your argument and is no different from saying ‘leftie’. I personally disagree with what he said as well, but at least he’s better than Limbaugh in that he’s not openly a racist, sexist moron who thinks climate change is a myth.
