I think this thread opens the door to a much larger issue (as does the article as well) than just a feud between Maher, Palin, NOW, etc.
And it's the climate female politicians are met with in general. The whole situation reminds me of the movie The Contender, in a way.
'Hillary is too ugly,' 'Palin is too MILFy,' the use of derogatory sexist terms. 'Oh, you stupid little woman, you.'
And I'm not a raging feminist of any kind but even I noticed the uphill battle female politicians are faced with. It's one thing to be hammered for your policies and tabloid fodder (as ALL politicians are). But it's another thing to make sexual slurs towards gender or criticize over physical appearance.

I like Bill Maher. Actually I find it quite amusing that folks get so bent out of shape over a political satirist/comedian.
You mean just like folks on the left gets bent out of shape over Glen Beck and Dennis Miller? I'll bet liberals consider those guys a laugh a minute!
