Working in Limbaugh at any opportunity... well done.VeloCity said:How is Romney going to stand up to Ahmadinejad and Iran when he can't even stand up to Rush Limbaugh?
I'd say Romney was more effective standing up to Limbaugh than Obama has been standing up to, oh lessee.... Bill Maher? And Limbaugh has not coughed up a cool million for Romney either.

Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator. Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job. Maher said of a woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don't show me your tits!” as though a woman feeding her child is trying to flash Maher. (Here’s a way to solve his problem: don’t stare at a strangers’ breasts). Then, his coup de grâce: “And by the way, there is a place where breasts and food do go together. It’s called Hooters!”
Liberals—you know, the people who say they “fight for women”—comprise Maher’s audience, and a parade of high-profile liberals make up his guest list. Yet have any of them confronted him? Nope. That was left to Ann Coulter, who actually called Maher a misogynist to his face, an opportunity that feminist icon Gloria Steinem failed to take when she appeared on his show in 2011.
Makes 'slut' and 'prostitute' look sort of.... mild.
Perhaps it's different when one agrees with who is making the derogatory comment.
And just in case it will suggested that Maher is 'just' a comedian:

At any rate, the "I don't bluff" comment from this Prez probably got little more than a chuckle from Ahmadinejad. And I'm not getting the impression Bibi was too impressed either.
