Hey, Obama Super-PAC: What's Good for Rush Limbaugh Should Be Good for Bill Maher

Question: If you're offended at Rush Limbaugh calling Democratic activist Sandra Fluke a "slut," why weren't you offended when Bill Maher called former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and other Republican women much worse?

Answer: Because you're way liberal and Maher is way liberal, which makes that kind ofmisogynistic rhetoric "allowed."

Here, from a John McCormack piece in this week's The Weekly Standard, are a few of the words and antics the political comedian got so much mileage on:

  • He called Palin a "dumb twat."
  • He described her using the C-word.
  • He called Palin and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann "boobs" and "two bimbos."
  • He joked about Rick Santorum's wife, Karen, using a vibrator.

Maher just gave $1 million to Barack Obama's super-PAC. Do you think, considering the double standard afoot here, that PAC boss Bill Burton is going to return the money to the HBO star of "Real Time With Bill Maher"?

Don't hold your breath.
