Bill Maher Is Very Wrong on Limbaugh

Maher on Real Time last night:

“I don’t like it that people are made to disappear when they say something, or people try to make them disappear when they say something you don’t like. That’s America. Sometimes you’re made to feel uncomfortable, okay?”

He doesn't get it and it pisses me off when otherwise smart people fail to get the goddamn picture. Condensed to the most concise explanation possible: Limbaugh influences the law. And the misogynistic paleoconservative laws that Republicans are passing -- with Limbaugh's endorsement and constant cheerleading -- are hurting women in profound ways.

Additionally, Limbaugh uses the public airwaves and we have a right to hold accountable anyone who borrows our property. Limbaugh's long history has reached a tipping point and it's time for accountability for language that hurts women (and minorities, etc, etc).

You're smarter than this, Bill.
