But they sing a different tune when the comedian is a conservative joking about liberals. Like when Don Rickles (a REAL comedian, unlike those idiots Letterman and Maher) made a joke about Obama.
"I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks," Rickles, 86, said according to The Hollywood Reporter. "President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke."
Now I admit, it is always in poor taste to use race as a basis for a joke. But it is also in poor taste to use conservative women - or their underage daughters - as a basis for a joke.
Rickles should not have made such a joke. But neither should Letterman, Maher or any other liberal idiot that thinks he's a comic. But what's good for the goose is good for the gander. If liberals think it's OK for Maher to smear people in a cruel fashion, then it is just as OK for Rickles to make a racial joke.
After all - he's "only a comedian."
