There's no defense for Bill Maher

To the editor:

I read Mr. Burciaga’s letter defending Bill Maher in stunned silence. He calls Maher funny. Would he have the same opinion if it was Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama who were called a name so vile to a woman that I can’t even abbreviate it, as he did to Sarah Palin? This is also a man who called the 9/11 terrorists “brave.” I know how difficult it must be for Obamunists to admit that Sarah Palin was right about the death panels — as confirmed by big-time Obama supporter and MSNBC political analyst Mark Halpryn, but to lash out because this newspaper showed the good sense to condemn him only shows just how dangerous and extreme the progressives that now control the Democratic Party are. It’s funny that on the same day his letter appears there was a cartoon printed that depicted global warming skeptics in a very unflattering way — doesn’t seem very right wing to me!
