While blasting GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney for not standing up to the "strident voices" on on the right concerning Rush Limbaugh's remarks about Democratic activist Sandra Fluke, Obama campaign strategist and key advisor David Axelrod may in fact be planning to appear on "rabid misogynist" Bill Maher's Real Time.
According to a post in The Daily, HBO spokesman Kelley Carville confirmed Axelrod would be a guest on the late-night talk show.
The Daily adds:
As the controversy over Rush Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke continued, a former Obama White House official today joined Republicans in pointing out that Maher, who recently donated $1 million to a pro-Obama super PAC, has a history of his misogynistic slurs.
Last year, he was rebuked by the National Organization for Women for calling Sarah Palin a "dumb tw*t."
“palin is right to point out that bill maher has said some pretty disgusting things about women, comedian or not. they are rush like,” Austan Goolsbee, the former chairman of President Obama’s Council on Economic Advisors, and currently a professor at the University of Chicago, tweeted.
After President Obama spoke with Fluke and invoked his own daughters, Sasha and Malia, in condemning sexist comments, Palin challenged the president's Super PAC to return Maher’s donation of $1 million.
"Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters. For the sake of everyone's daughter, why doesn't his super PAC return the $1 million he got from a rabid misogynist?," Palin wrote Tuesday on her Facebook page.
