Everyone knows HBO host Bill Maher oversteps his boundaries and would probably make his girlfriend cry, so I was surprised to find myself agreeing wholeheartedly with his Wednesday New York Times op-ed titled, “Please Stop Apologizing,” which is a call for all of us to stop being so. damn. sensitive.

If you’re a woman who wants to hold a political seat someday, don’t waste your time dabbling into local government or community projects. Testify before Congress and pray that conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh will call you a “slut” or a “prostitute,” and get people to notice you. Apparently being qualified isn’t enough to get women to noticed anymore.

Compared to many, conservative commentator Ann Coulter waited a relatively long time to thoroughly address the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke fracas, most likely because she didn’t want to look like a complainer. That’s for the left to do, says the New York Times bestselling author.

It’s hard to believe that it was less than two weeks ago when Rush Limbaugh first apologized for calling Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” during his show. The timeline is a tough thing to wrap your head around, due in large part to the unending wave of minutiae-laden tirades that have resulted from it. Yes, Limbaugh apologized, and then we all remembered that Rush Limbaugh is Rush Limbaugh and we had a laugh at the absurd idea that any of us had cared what he thinks about women anyway.
But the story didn’t die.

Just when you thought the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke debacle couldn’t get any more ridiculous, comedian Bill Maher upped the ante by reminding us that he defended Limbaugh, but that his name-calling of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was not as bad as the conservative radio host’s “slut” and “prostitute” remarks and was taken out of context.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made quite a knee-slapping wisecrack at Friday’s Women in the World 2012 conference in which she not-so-discreetly swiped at conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has been all over the news the past few weeks for calling Georgetown University student a “slut” and a “prostitute.”

So here’s the thing: Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh was completely out of line to call Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute,” but news outlets everywhere aren’t doing viewers any favors by stumbling over themselves to cover this story to death. The media fixation on Fluke has allowed a comparatively less controversial statement from Limbaugh, who went after “The American Way of Eating” author Tracie McMillan for being “single, white [and over-educated],” to proliferate in the news to the detriment of other women.

How does it feel to be the latest woman conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has attacked in the past few weeks?
“Weird,” says The American Way of Eating author Tracie McMillan, whom Limbaugh criticized during his Tuesday broadcast for being “single, white, [and over-educated].”

It’s safe to say that conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has more nerve than anyone else in the country.
