Obama Super PAC chief: C’mon, you can’t compare Bill Maher to Rush

posted at 6:19 pm on March 8, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Greg Hengler. Alternate headline: “No, they’re not giving back Maher’s million dollars.” He had several messaging options here. One: “What Maher said is terrible but we’ve all said things we regret.” That’s my preferred choice but he can’t dig in on that one or else implicitly he’s letting Rush off the hook too and that doesn’t help his war-on-women talking point nonsense. Two: “Fluke is a private citizen whereas Maher’s targets are public figure.” That’s probably his best defense, but as KP noted in her op-ed the other day, it doesn’t explain why sexist nastiness is okay when directed at the latter but not the former. Three: “Maher’s a comedian whereas Rush is the leader of the Republican Party.” This is the one he ended up going with; Burton’s White House roots are evident in that vintage 2009 line about Limbaugh. Problem is, Maher’s “jokes” about the women he attacks are usually sufficiently vicious as to leave no doubt about his true feelings. He’s not Don Rickles ripping on people for funsies; when he calls Palin a “dumb twat,” it’s because he’s searching for language to express his contempt and ended up there. The “clown nose off, clown nose on” defense for comedians doesn’t work when your clown nose is never really on.

Four: He could have been honest and admitted that (a) they could really use a million bucks and (b) they want to stay on the good side of a guy like Maher who’ll spend the next eight months using his media platform to argue on Obama’s behalf provided that they don’t piss him off. This is another reason why guys like him, Olbermann, and Taibbi skate: It’s not just that, as doctrinaire liberals, they’re necessarily “pro-woman” no matter how anti-woman their language is. It’s that the left’s establishment doesn’t want to undermine people who carry their water on policy. If the price of statist advocacy is tolerating the occasional dropping of the C-bomb, hey. Two clips for you here in that spirit, then, one of Burton and the other of Jay Carney yammering about Obama “leading by example” so that he doesn’t have to actually confront the malfeasors on his own side. Exit question via Michael Moynihan: Does this guy usually issue public statements taking issue with all of the moronic things members of his faculty say? If not, why this time?

Fluke is a private citizen

So tired of this line of reasoning.
1) Is there such a thing as a “public citizen”? We’re all private citizens.
2) If she were so “private”, none of what he said would have made sense to any of his audience. But – it made sense. Guess what? You step into the kitchen – it gets warmer.

Apparently you can’t compare a slut to, well, a slut.

SouthernGent on March 8, 2012 at 6:24 PM

He’s right, there’s no comparison: While Rush was trying to make a point about government subsidizing sexual behavior, Bill Maher was just dehumanizing someone he disagrees with rather than address their arguments. At least Rush’s comments were arguably on-point, whereas Maher doesn’t even have that fig leaf with which to hide his misogyny.

Socratease on March 8, 2012 at 6:24 PM

Ah yes. The Left is hoisted on their own Petard. What looked like shooting fish in a barrel, (let’s jump on Fat Rush ! We’ll change the Narrative !), has them now backpedaling on several fronts. The dust will settle soon and the freedom of Religion issue will still be there…where it can be brought out again in September.

Good Job Rush.

moc23 on March 8, 2012 at 6:25 PM

Maher has a political show on HBO. How exactly is he a comedian? “Sexually degrade a woman.” Are you kidding? How many liberals sexually degrade conservative women? And, of course, Andrea kneepads doesn’t follow-up on any of it. Yeah, she’s a “real journalist” and Breitbart wasn’t. Get real!

JAM on March 8, 2012 at 6:25 PM

I don’t understand the private citizen defense. Because Palin was a governor and is now a high profile political commentator that is a valid excuse to call her a dumb tw*t and a c*nt?

Rush is nobody, no no, Rush is the leader of the Republican party, no, no, Rush is an entertainer, no no, Rush is more to blame because his audience is bigger than Maher’s………..keep spinnin’ Sybil, and we’ll just continue to sit back grinnin’ and enjoy the show. Throw a little Soledad in with her head exploding as she repeats “bombshell, bombshell, bombshell” and I couldn’t ask for better entertainment.

If Sarah Palin had testified that birth control should be free based on her family’s experiences, we would be having an entirely different conversation.

Suddenly the word, slut, would be fashionable and hysterics would be had about the nerve of some people expecting everyone else to pony up for Some People’s Kids recreational drugs.

And maybe, just maybe, it would suddenly make sense to the dimbulbs in the media to look at this a freedom of religion issue and not a free medical care issue. “How DARE you make me pay for her kid’s anything?!!!!”

Lily on March 8, 2012 at 6:39 PM

Is there anything that says “TOOL” more than Bill Burton’s face? He has got to be one of the most clueless, repetitive, talking points spewing people in the entire liberal pantheon (hey, they think of themselves as equal to G-d, why not rub it in a little).
.
Second, I cannot, cannot, CANNOT listen to Andrea Mitchell. Her chirupy, sing-song voice is meant for something other than television. Plus, her liberalness is just too irritating! Yuch! Yuch, yuch, yuch!
.
These liberal jerks are really wrapping themselves around the axle trying to differentiate the misogynist Bill Maher (Marr Marr Marr)from the entertainer Rush Limbaugh. When did Rush ever run for political office? How is he “the leader of the Republican Party.” We might as well declare David Letterman, “the Lecher of Latenight,” the new leader of the Democrat Party, if they want to play that game.

We can beat them over the head for their First Amendment hypocrisy and this goes hand-in-hand with their assault on religious freedom with the contraception mandate.

Obama spits on the Constitution, doesn’t believe in religious freedom, and doesn’t care about freedom of speech. Three bright-red targets.

It’s true enough that you “can’t compare Bill Maher to Rush.” That would be like comparing Hitler (Maher) with John the Baptist (Rush). Oh, I know, that’s so “extreme”! But I’m talking here about INTEGRITY and overall contributions to America’s good. People like Maher are ruining America. They really don’t know what they’re doing — to America or to themselves. They are traitors to God, to man, and to America.

They will have plenty of time to consider their ways after they stand before the Lord Jesus Christ at the Great White Throne of judgment (and no, that’s not a racist remark; it’s the truth [see Revelation 20:10-15]). But between now and then, America will go through convulsions and devastation, thanks in part to the policies of the present evil regime in Washington. Doubt me? Read The Harbinger, by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. And then start weeping for America, because her end is near.

Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertiser’s apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke.

Every left wing hack calls them self a “comedian” these days. They want to do their commentary but can’t seem to do it without the clown shield to hide behind when it comes back their way.

Obama has been anti women since he attacked Hillary by having his low class supporters chant “Iron my shirt” and playing Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” at his primary campaign stops.

Obama is a misogynist. End of story.

Keep listening to Rush. Maybe you will learn something.

DBear on March 8, 2012 at 6:56 PM

What do you propose should be the programming and schedule an Armed Forces Radio?

OK look, Americans. You need to ignore the administration’s attacks on free speech. You need to ignore the fact that the administration’s dept of justice just announced “again” that BHO can assassinate American citizens, anywhere in the world, including inside the US, if he deems it necessary.

You Americans need to ignore the fact that rising gas prices will lead to further poverty.

You Americans need to ignore the fact that unemployment is 9.1% and underemployment is close to 19%.

Ignore the price of food, clothing and shelter for crying out loud!

Ignore the food police who take away a home-made lunch and replace it with pink slime chicken mcbuggits.

Ignore the rising rate of poverty, ignore Iran, ignore Iraq, ignore Afghanistan, ignore the cuts in benefits to those who have served; ignore everything I’m doing as your present-dunce… cuz…

With our little friend DBear, it’s more telling the posts it responds to, and the posts it does not.

Heh. When exactly was that?

Key West Reader on March 8, 2012 at 7:16 PM

why is the government subsidizing Rush? why are they giving him a platform? why is the government picking winners and losers instead of letting the free market decide?

DBear on March 8, 2012 at 6:48 PM

True.
The government should subsidize NPR .
And HBO and NBC and MSNBC and CNN and ABC and CBS should subsidize Obama Hussein Odinga

Funny how they were fine pulling the trigger at Carrie Prejean when all she did was state the same opinion on SSM that Barack Obama has.

Prejean would have loved to only have a 3 day Fluking.
