its basically about Rush and why he called someone a slut. Calling a Georgetown Law student and joking about Sarah Palin? One is a private individual and the one asked to be in the public eye making herself fair game.
I don't particularly like the guy but he does air out the issues every week and blows apart the BS that the politicians offer as explanations for their actions. He is full of himself but he is better acquanted with the issues than most. He is pro Obama to a fault ( donating a million dollars to his campaign) but is quick to critisize him when Obama doesn't take cheap shots.
He is kind of like listening to Howard Stern, I don't necessarily agree with all he says but I want to hear what he says next. LOL.
Just because he is a liberal, doesn't mean all liberals are like that. I am voting Democrat this time, but I am not a liberal by the way. Actually I am an independent. Being liberal and being Democrat aren't the same thing. Some are moderates.
I don't dispute that he said it. I have no doubt that he did. He says crass things. We expect Bill Maher to say crass things. Just as we expect Ann Coulter to say crass things. They cancel each other out in the crass department.
Bill Maher is the main reason HBO is not and will not be in my house until he is no longer there. He is every bit the hate mongering thing everyone claims Rush and others to be but has a national cable show.
Please, call Bill Maher a racist all you want. He's also a misogynist, Islamophobe, and a flat out bigot in many other areas. In fact, call out racism when you see it. When a high profile pundit paints black people as violent and stupid, it should be met with scorn. When he advocates carpet bombing Arab nations because he's not a fan of their (or any) religion, tell him to go blow.
Racism exists in many spectrums. It is often more overt in conservative speech, but skeptics have a bad habit of trying to use science to support their internalized racism and misogyny. Voting for the black dude doesn't make you not racist. It just makes you marginally less racist than someone who won't vote for anyone who isn't white.

Why are conservatives so intent on pissing off a whole religion that has like three billion members instead of singling out the extremist groups that have resorted to terrorism as their primary offensive strategy?
