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.
Fmr. Gov. Rendell: Democratic women are also asking the Dems to return Bill Maher's money after his controversial comments about women
@jesseltaylor I'd believe Republicans cared abt Maher's language if they'd said something a yr ago when he said itthey're a bit slow; RT
