    that Mahar's remarks were over the line, here is the big difference:

    Mahar is a comedian by trade, although he does his political thing, AND Palin is a public person and once a public official.  Commenting on her is fair game, but calling her that word is crossing the line, even in joking.

    Fluke is not a public official.  Her case is now a 'cause celeb' because of how it has blown up.  What this really signifies is intimidation of an American citizen to prevent that person from expressing her right to free speech.  She didn't even get the chance to explain herself to Congress because the GOP in Congress wrongfully disallowed the Democrats their minority witnesses.

    This is why we are now in this place in the first place.

    "No, I'm being judged against the ideal. Joe Biden has a saying: 'Don't judge me against the Almighty, judge me against the alternative." --President Barack Obama, 12/11/11
