    This irrational idiocy is what passes for intellectual insight on right-wing talk radio.

    Art, do let us know when one of those "Self-loathing Anti-Gay Republicans" here at RJ that you're always harping about weigh in to defend Limbaugh. I'd like to know who they are too. Are you sure they are not just another one of the many imaginary things swirling around in your head?

    Gilbert Gottfried gets fired from Aflac and defended by celebs

    Two hosts of the popular daytime talk show The View rushed to defend the embattled comedian. Joy Behar and and Whoopi Goldberg count themselves in his corner. Said Behar: "Have you seen his act? It's always inappropriate. That's his act."

    Added Whoopi: "I think that one of the things that people always forget is that comics have never been appropriate... that's the whole idea."

    Tweeted Gottfried: "I sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by my attempt at humor regarding the tragedy in Japan. I meant no disrespect, and my thoughts are with the victims and their families."

    Joan Rivers added her name to Gottfried's defenders, chiding Aflac for its actions: "That's what comedians do!!! We react to tragedy by making jokes to help people in tough times feel better through laughter."

    Shock jock Howard Stern, no stranger to controversial eruptions himself also criticized the firing. "When the Aflac people hired him to be the Aflac duck, they knew all of this," Stern said on his radio show. "They know this is an offensive guy. This is a guy whose humor is offensive. He's made fun of every disaster I've ever heard.... How does a company like that then all of the sudden say: 'Oh! The comments you made about Japan!' ... There's no reason for him to be fired. To be fired for offensiveness? He should have never been hired then."

    Comedian Shane Mauss tweeted himself in Gottfried's number: "So NO ONE is supposed to make any jokes about Japan? Lets all just ignore the radioactive elephant in the room."

    L.A. comedy writer Rob Delaney sounded a note of caution on the matter, telling the Chicago Tribune that social media such as Twitter may make private thoughts a little too easy to make public. "You don't have to write a joke on every topic. And you'll be funnier if you don't."

    Japan is really advanced. They don’t go to the beach. The beach comes to them.

    I just split up with my girlfriend, but like the Japanese say, ‘There’ll be another one floating by any minute now’.

    What does every Japanese person have in their apartment? Flood lights.

    I was talking to my Japanese real estate agent. I said “is there a school in this area.” She said ‘not now, but just wait.’”

    My Japanese doctor advised me to stay healthy I need 50 million gallons of water a day.

    We can talk again when our society has advanced to what the Tokyo governor has done today: apologize for a superstitious statement. God forbid that one of our officials apologize for expressing religious sentiments in support of American city-on-a hill exceptionalism.

    http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2011/03/15/tokyo-governor-apologizes-for-calling-quake-divine-retribution/“The way [Ishihara] used it was a prewar understanding of the will of heaven or the gods to discipline the Japanese people,” Nelson said.

    “That understating of the gods having an agenda was instrumental to the ideology of the prewar years, when it was said to be Japan’s divine mission to conquer Asia and establish an empire," Nelson said.

    Gottfried got fired for his "jokes".
    Limbaugh has NOT been fired.

    An NPR exec was fired for his (heavily doctored) supposed comments about TeaPartiers being racist.
    Glenn Beck called President Obama a "racist" and was neither fired nor reprimanded in any way.

    All this shows how little accountability and common decency exists within the right-wing propaganda machine of Fox "News" and right-wing talk radio.

    Dear, dear half brother. Once agin, one finds it sad that you put yourself up on a pedistool, and fail to see or even act, on the sins of your party, let alone acknolage them; let alone your very own. Sad when men have sight, yet decide to remain blind to the truth. Look how diffrent your life may be now, if you had started to live a truful life as a young man.

    From your half brother, a pure homosexual, one of the real gays.

    And the Repubs should be more worried about foreign affairs and less intent on unpatriotically attacking the President during these difficult times.
    Whatever happened to the Repub's claim to put "Country First"?

    You need to ask your president that one, it seems basketball, is more important right now.

    While extending the deepest sympathy to our neighbour New Zealand, and the Small islands of japan. One can't help thinking that a visiting alien would ask why humans have developed large communities near the sea in areas known to be characterised by earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.

    One shudders to think what could happen in Los Angeles.

    President Obama cannot presume to speak for the Republicans. Only Republicans can answer what happened to their claim.

    But we'd best not hold our breaths waiting for them to try to explain their grossly unpatriotic behavior.

    The left do it all the bloody time here, while overlooking their own sins.

    Quoting them and exposing falsehoods is not speaking for them.

    WE may ask our President that, but not YOU.

    Furthermore, you apparently never heard of multi-tasking. US Presidents throughout history have concerned themselves with more than one single thing at a given moment. So have all world leaders.

    How really stupid to think the President believes basketball is more important than the crisis in Japan. He has his Administration focused on it. But life goes on, and Americans are themselves also interested in these March games.

    Should we cancel them? Ignore them? Forget them? Make no comment about them? Yah know, when your agenda is to mindlessly criticize everything about the US President, you will criticize everything about the US President, no matter he does or doesn't do.

    He can't.. it would take way to much courage. Additionally he'd have to throw up after it. Denouncing the patron saint of the right is nasty business.
