Political entertainer uses vulgarism to describe women

No, not Rush Limbaugh; I am speaking of the left wing political entertainer Bill Maher who called Sarah Palin a "cunt" and a "stupid twat," and referred to Palin and Bachmann supporters as the "Milf vote." (For those who may not know, Milf means "mothers I would like to F**k.")

Rush Limbaugh created a firestorm of relentless trumped up phony indignation by crudely calling a women a "slut" and a prostitute because she testified she wanted the government to force her employer to provide her with birth control pills paid for by someone other than herself. Rush's critics have succeeded in getting two sponsors to drop sponsorship of his show.

You may have heard a lot about what he said. Here is what he said:

Can you imagine if you’re her parents how proud of Sandra Fluke you would be? Your daughter…testifies she’s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth control pills and she agrees that Obama should provide them, or the pope.
Fluke testified that without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman as much as $3,000 during law school. Three thousand dollars for birth control in three years? That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex — and, she wants us to pay for it.
They’re admitting before congressional committee that they’re having so much sex they can’t afford the birth control pills! What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps. 
I think Limbaugh was over the top and offensive. However, that is what he does. He is often offensive. He is a pundit who uses humor, exaggeration, and rant to make a point. He is an entertainer.

I have a close member of my family who is as about as far left as one can get without being an armed revolutionary. We have simply come to an understanding to avoid controversial topics. I am sure she will be fighting to contain herself from blasting Limbaugh when next she sees me. The funny thing is, she and her husband watch Bill Maher faithfully. They are big Bill Maher fans.

When Bill Maher used his vulgarity to describe Sarah Palin, The National Organization for Women issued a critical statement and the conservative media was critical, but the mainstream liberal establishment was very quiet. There was no outrage among liberals and there was not an effort to get him kicked off the air. You may not have even heard about it. He got a pass.  Democratic leaders and Democratic political candidates were not asked to denounce him. No one asked candidate Barack Obama what he thought of Maher's comment. When Piers Morgan interviewed Bill Maher and Maher made his "milf vote" comment, Piers laughed and found if oh so amusing.

Can anyone say "phony indignation," "hypocrisy," "opportunistic sensitivity" or "double standard?"
