Bill Maher Asks For a Cease Fire

It's a bummer when your side starts a war and you become a casualty.  That's where Bill Maher found himself when the assault on Rush Limbaugh began.  Now Maher is asking for a cease fire:
Let’s have an amnesty — from the left and the right — on every made-up, fake, totally insincere, playacted hurt, insult, slight and affront. Let’s make this Sunday the National Day of No Outrage. One day a year when you will not find some tiny thing someone did or said and pretend you can barely continue functioning until they apologize.

If that doesn’t work, what about this: If you see or hear something you don’t like in the media, just go on with your life. Turn the page or flip the dial or pick up your roll of quarters and leave the booth.

The answer to whenever another human being annoys you is not “make them go away forever.” We need to learn to coexist, and it’s actually pretty easy to do.
This might be one of the first times I've ever agreed with something he's said. The fact is, there's no reason why we couldn't do this every day. Nobody has the power to "outrage" you unless you give it to them. If you refuse them the power, they can't touch you.

Unfortunately, the left is so driven by emotion rather than reason that they just can't keep from empowering everyone that comes along to punch their buttons.  They'll never learn.

Sucks, doesn't it Bill?

Just as Obama wouldn't stand up to one-hundredth of what Sarah Palin has been through, Maher is just getting a taste of what conservatives like Rush live with.

Has Maher been black-balled from buying an NFL franchise because of fabricated comments?

Has Maher had local broadcast affiliates screw with the rebroadcast of his TV show?

Has there ever been legislation written for the express purpose of taking Bill Maher off the air?

Instead of asking for a cease fire, he should turn his anger on his lefty buddies who created an atmosphere of intollerance.

But, DANGIT, he thought he was supposed to get to kick the ball, not to have to receive it.
