    It's not only who you say it about that counts... it's who says it.

    If Bill Maher says this word( and worse)... people just chuckle and move on. When other people say it the media spins into a tizzy.

    Last Sunday on the morning Washington news show "This Week" on ABC a lady jurnalist reacting to this incident called Limbauh "Pigish" and other words intended to insult... and the moderator who was all agast at Limbaugh calling someone an offensive name didn't even call her on it. Wasn't it the same thing? Just from a different person (a friend of the show)?

    There IS a double-standard... there's no doubt about that.

    Bottom line... it doesn't matter to me much because we shouldn't be calling people names like this whether you are Limbaugh, Maher, or the lady on the news show, or just joe blow on the street.

    Can anyone bring up a lie told by Rush?

    People are offended by truth, and Rush is a master of speaking it.

    Those who are upset are upset ONLY because it was Rush who said it.

    I agree with the core question, but not the venom with which it was delivered.

    Of all the things people can purchase for themselves, and the real needs our society/country has for spending our tax revenues wisely, should tax money really be spent on contraceptives of any sort?

    Now it seems that question is lost in the noise of a stupid controversy...
