The battle over potty-mouthed talk show hosts is getting partisan indeed.
After taking a pass on criticizing conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh for calling a Georgetown University student a prostitute, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney used strong terms to condemn Thursday remarks by liberal talk-show host/comedian Bill Maher, who used vulgar language to describe Sarah Palin.
In an appearance on the Sean Hannity radio show, Romney said, “Frankly, what Bill Maher said, and I finally read the transcripts, I was offended, outraged that a person would say that on TV and would not have been called on the carpet before now and not apologized for it. To have the Obama campaign retain a million dollars from Bill Maher, it is simply outrageous. I don’t condone that kind of language and particularly in a public setting, a TV setting.… It’s just gone way beyond the pale.”
