Misogynistic Comedian Who Called Sarah Palin a Cunt & Dumb Twat Headlining Fundraiser for Georgia Democratic Party

Remember the outrage from Democrats after radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh used less than flattering words to describe Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke?

Democrats said Limbaugh was the latest ally in the so-called Republican "War on Women."

“Rush Limbaugh has come to Republicans' defense in their war on women," said Jesse Ferguson, a spokesperson for the [Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee], "but now the real question is whether Republicans are willing to stand up to him and his repulsive attacks on women."

Democrats were remarkably silent though when liberal comedian Bill Maher hurled repulsive and misogynistic insults towards former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Maher called Palin a cunt and a dumb twat. When asked if there was a double-standard being held by Democrats and their allies in the media, Bill Maher said it's different when he calls women cunts and twats [Shahid, Aliyah (15 March 2012).

Maher may be right. There may be a difference between his actions and Rush Limbaugh's actions. After all, Rush Limbaugh didn't give $1 million to assist in the re-election of Barack Obama in 2012. Bill Maher did. Rush Limbaugh isn't headlining a fundraiser for the Georgia Democratic Party. Bill Maher is.

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, Bill Maher is paying for his microphone.

But the real question is whether Democrats are willing to stand up to Bill Maher and his repulsive attacks on women.

I doubt they are because, as Bill Maher himself said, it's different when liberals call conservative women cunts and dumb twats.
