    Senior presidential adviser David (the axe) Axelrod cancelled a scheduled appearance on Bill Maher's show because of public outrage generated when Maher's reputation for public unfunny insults aimed at women was revealed. There is also renewed pressure for the Obama campaign to return the million dollars donated by Maher.

    Really? And this has what to do with the fact that the sponsors are fleeing in droves from the obese junkies show?

    Jesus, droves, huh? Can you be a bit more specific?

    Meanwhile though I noticed yesterday Rush was still doing his three hours a day, and the local station's been running his promos this morning same as any other weekday. You suppose droves of other advertisers have take the places of the idiots who left?

    I do nothing with the left's wishful suppositions. The uncomfortable fact is that the liberal media would have gladly ignored Maher's serial insults of women but a single word that Rush apologized for might force democrats to return a million dollars and focuses uncomfortable scrutiny about hate-speech on the left.

    It doesn't matter what the anti-semites on the left think about the Koch brothers. The fact is that the Obama administration assumes that their association with Maher is something to be avoided. It wouldn't have happened if the left wing media didn't fake outrage about Rush using the word "slut".
