Will Obama Super PAC Return Misogynist Bill Maher’s Million-Dollar Donation?

In response to the media firestorm surrounding Rush Limbaugh’s insulting comments about Democratic activist Sandra Fluke (comments for which Limbaugh apologized), Kirsten Powers writes about the liberal men who have used misogynistic rhetoric without facing the same outrage. Powers notes that “the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1 million to President Obama’s super PAC.” She continues:

Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator. Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job. Maher said of a woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don’t show me your tits!” as though a woman feeding her child is trying to flash Maher. (Here’s a way to solve his problem: don’t stare at a strangers’ breasts). Then, his coup de grâce: “And by the way, there is a place where breasts and food do go together. It’s called Hooters!”

Former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, the man who runs Obama’s super PAC, did not reply when asked if he will be returning Maher’s $1 million donation.

Obama asks to deliver commencement speech at New York women’s college

By Amie Parnes – 03/03/12 11:25 AM ET

President Obama will address the graduates of Barnard College at this year’s commencement, The Hill has confirmed.

Obama will deliver the keynote address at the women’s college in New York on May 14.

The White House called the college in recent days and offered up Obama as the commencement speaker and the college promptly accepted. Originally, New York Timesexecutive editor Jill Abramson was set to address the graduates before the White House called the college.

The president and his fellow Democrats have made women a focus of their campaigns of late.

Obama recently found himself in the middle of a contraception debate, after his administration issued a rule requiring health insurers — including some religious organizations such as charities and hospitals — to cover contraception without a co-pay.

After an outcry from religious leaders, he offered a compromise with what he called a more “sensible approach,” which did not satisfy all the critics.

“Whether you’re a teacher…or a nurse or a janitor, no woman’s health should depend on who she is of where she works or how much money she makes,” Obama said when announcing his administration’s revised policy. “Every woman should be in control of the decisions that affect her own health. Period.”

On Friday, the president waded deeper into the controversy, when he called to offer his support for Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student targeted by Rush Limbaugh for her testimony in defense of the administration’s policy.

Obama told Fluke she had been the subject of “inappropriate personal attacks” after Limbaugh referred to her as a “slut” and a “prostitute” during his show.

A White House official told The New York Times, which first reported the story Saturday, that “as the father of two daughters, President Obama wanted to speak to some of America’s next generation of women leaders.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, actress Meryl Streep and Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg were all commencement speakers in recent years.

POSTED: 1:14 pm PST March 4, 2012

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Comedian, Impressionist, and Actor Steve Bridges, best known for his impersonation of President George W. Bush, has died. He was 48.

In addition to his impersonation of President Bush, he also appeared as Presidents Bill Clinton, and more recently as Barack Obama.

His most notable appearance came as President Bush’s alter ego, when the two men appeared, side by side, at the 2006, White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Mr. Bridges made frequent appearances on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In 2006, He toured with Barbara Streisand for nearly 20 performances.

Over the course of his career, Mr. Bridges developed a repertoire of more than 200 vocal impressions, including TV characters Barney Fife and Homer Simpson, broadcasters Tom Brokaw, Paul Harvey and Rush Limbaugh; but it was is spot-on embodiment of political leaders that rapidly established him as a premier vocal impressionist.

Bridges had recently returned from several performances in Hong Kong. Upon returning home Mr. Bridges complained to his manager that he was feeling “super jetlagged.” A message left for Mr. Bridges on Friday, went unanswered. Bridges’ maid discovered his body in his Los Angeles, home Saturday morning, March 3, 2012. The exact cause of death is unknown at this time.

Mr. Bridges is survived by his parents, Tom & Margaret Bridges, his brothers Phillip & Jon, and his sister Elizabeth Bridges – all of Clayton, California.
