However you feel about the HHS mandate aside what Rush said was terrible and uncalled for. Calling her a prostitute, saying that she wasn't good for anything but sex, and suggesting that she should have to post sex tapes online was so extreme. It hurt not only him but his cause. Then again, what can be expected of a man who refers to Obama as an 'oreo', calls the first lady fat, and says that only ugly women care about sexual harassment because they're jealous that they don't get that kind of attention, but the pretty ones think its a compliment? He's a drug addicted hypocrite who has never had any respect for women.
He is a terrible person through and through. I only hope that someday he learns respect and compassion.
Respectfully, since you describe yourself as an atheist, may I ask you a question? How is Bill Maher, the atheist demagogue, exempt from this sort of outrage, when he spews far worse venom upon the Roman Catholic Church on a weekly basis? Where is the indignation directed against him? Is it really a matter of "what is said", or is it more about from whch side of the Culture-War chasm the offensive diatribe emanates?
Rush was way out of line in this instance, and were I that girl's father, I would want to have a meeting with him and recieve his retraction face-to-face. However, you use the word hypocrite in you description of Limbaugh, yet I wonder if that word doesn't more aptly describe the "selective outrage syndrome" which seems to be running rampant in our society.
