If you don't believe that, well then I guess it's a good thing I qualified it, eh?
We use our words for a reason. One should consider reading them as such.
Typical rightie, unable to discern between two different things. I was commenting on the joke. Not Bill Maher.
See, I can do that. I think Ted Nugent is a total whack job. And a lot of shit he says is highly offensive. But that doesn't mean I can't appreciate his music. I disagree completely with Clint Eastwood's politics and found his convention skit somewhat offensive. But he's one of my favorite directors. Dude makes absolutely fantastic movies. I like him.
You can't just 100% write off anything and everything from someone you disagree with or who offends you. And you can't automatically assume the worst about people. Which you seemed to do in this case when you jumped to conclusions about me simply because I interpreted a joke differently than someone else.
