Obama Must Return Foul-Mouthed Comic's Million Bucks or Be Tainted By His Misogyny

At IBD, "Obama Obliged to Return Hate Speech Comic's Million":
Misogyny and hate-mongering are not things President Obama wants his re-election campaign tainted by. There's no avoiding getting his Super-PAC to return sleaze merchant Bill Maher's million dollars.

Just when you thought there couldn't be any worse double standards, a sewer-mouthed "comedian" gives a million smackers to help re-elect President Obama, yet the major media and leading Democrats think it's fine.

The same Democrats and media organizations blew a socket when Rush Limbaugh used "slut" to describe a feminist activist who wants taxpayers to finance her efforts at avoiding pregnancy. But consider how Bill Maher has treated Sarah Palin.

Not only has he called her the c-word in his act, and another four-letter obscenity with the same meaning; he compared Palin to a "pimp" and called her family — which includes a son with Down Syndrome — "inbred."

Maher also lumped former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and Palin together using an obscene four-letter acronym little known outside pornographic chat rooms.

Turn the tables and imagine Mitt Romney, say, taking money from a comic whose routine included using the c-word to describe Hillary Clinton. Democratic National Committee head Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be calling it a GOP war on women, and it would dominate prime time news coverage for weeks.
