Just look who is complaining the most about Bill Maher and who is canceling appearances because they might get a tough question. I'm a liberal, obviously, and I think the whole PC thing is blown out of proportion. Around here, most government agencies are dominated by conservatives and they are constantly ruling for PC and then when someone complains that they're going too far, they blame liberals. It's always about dodging accountability.<br><br>
Not addressed to you, Michael, obviously. I find it hilarious how hysterical the wingnuts are getting about Palin. I mean, they're even descending to the argument that some jokes are not PC enough to be told. Seriously. And to make matters worse, to make the case that the joke is not PC, they have to mislead about the nature of the joke. The joke was not that the kid has Down Syndrome. That, Maher said, is a touching element of Palin's profile. The joke was at Edwards's expense . . . it was an anti-democrat joke, folks, but the wingnuts are too hysterical to recognize it.<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>

Good point. When Limpaugh made fun of Michael J. Fox ~ easily one of the most repulsive things I've seen/heard, even considering the source.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it. Really.</font color=blue><br><br>
