What exactly is over the line
« on: May 11, 2009, 05:09:01 PM »
Why when wanda sykes says this

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/05/11/comedian-wanda-sykes-draws-cracks-rush-limbaughs-health-patriotism/

(Also notice obama beaming in the photo's background)

It is seen as okay, funny enough for the President himself to slap his knee

But when a golf announcer says this

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/05/10/golf-analyst-feherty-sorry-pelosi-joke-dallas-magazine/

Apologies  flow like a river as well as CBS distancing itself from the guy and he may end up fired

You cannot tell me there is not a left slant in journalism in this country. And the really bad news is the 2ND article has some truth to it. NP and HR better hope I never end up in an elevator with them Osama can come to

Well I can see why.  The first one is only degrading to only Limbaugh, who is a public figure.  The second one is not only degrading to Pelosi which would be fine by itself, but it's also degrading to every member of the military which is not fine.

Same person, either spelling is acceptable in Arabic.
