First of all, Americans are pretty divided on the ACA, although a majority do not want to see it repealed entirely
. It's also interesting to note that in many polls, even those who report opposition to the law change their minds when they understand what repealing it would mean. So it's not clear to me that Americans are going to flock to the polls to vote Republican on that basis.
It's not clear to FLoW either, but when you're grasping at straws you don't let that son-of-a-bitch go no matter what.

Here's a fun little article compiling some of the language from the left regarding women that, for some odd reason, didn't seem to garner nearly as much outrage as Limbaugh.
Your language here is so dishonest it's amusing. So what Bill Maher, who is not a member of the Democratic party, and an obscure columnist who I think only Triskele has said he reads regularly; what these two guys say is "language from the left regarding women."
What a fucking joke. As someone pointed out above, Rush Limbaugh is
the GOP. John fucking Boehner - you know, the most powerful Republican in the country - had to get down on his knees and beg Rush's apology for calling Limbaugh out the last time he made national news for saying something purposely incendiary and assholish.
Limbaugh has a national audience of people who take their marching orders from them. If you're unhappy with the amount of outrage aimed at Maher and Taibbi, it's because they're fucking irrelevant.
But hey, this is the game you're best at. Trying to turn the tables so that you don't look like such a terrible person for blindly supporting these fucks for so long. Doesn't work.
All this does, bringing up Maher and Taibbi, is make you look like you're defending Rush. Which you are by trying to pass it off as a joke and bringing up the tried and true, "but you guys do it too!"
