Personally...Id LOVE to see them try and pull it off. As it is...I stand by my offer. Maher and the democrats will look FAR WORSE than Limbaugh.
    Libel/slander does by definition include what was said. The more injurious the words, the more libel the broadcaster. Saying "she's a liar" (even a ****ing liar) isn't nearly as injurious as calling her a whore. Being called a liar can be taken in context (Right v Left) as "normal" rhetoric. Being called a whore (or embezzler, or druggie, or whatever) could be taken seriously, which in turn would mar the character of the person. At least, that's the law as I understand it, which I admit is as amateur as most people here.

    Rev. Falwell was accused of being not only a drunk but of having sex with his mother. He won three (?) cases before it got to the SCOTUS, where it was overturned. I doubt Falwell would have even bothered if Hustler had limited their slam to "lying bastard" or "pompous asshole".

    Like I said...I hope people cling to that line of reasoning. Hey all you ladies out there. The left only cares who is being called a slut whore **** and twat and if whoever calls them that contributes to the party. Not THAT they are being called it. Yep...it's going to play well on the big screen.

    Is he still on the air? What is his net worth? Any plans for him to go off the air? Meanwhile...democrat lawmakers where quick to condemn the LANGUAGE...not the target...calling Limbaughs comments misogynistic. That same congresswoman's response to Mahers use of the same words? Silence...a refusal to even say "I think that language is ALWAYS inappropriate". Nope....silence. Oh yes...its going to play well. And there is a long time for it to play. I suspect you will see that video and commentary more than a few times. Limbaugh is who he is...what he is. His supporters wont stop listening (and neither will his haters...and be honest...that ****s funny right there). But the hypocrisy of the left on this issue? Its wide screen and blu-ray baby...

    Aides to the McCain-Palin campaign said on October 24 that they would "spend heavily" on a new TV advertisement invoking Wurzelbacher's nickname. The ad would feature "several different people looking into the camera and saying, 'I'm Joe the Plumber.' One man accuses Obama of wanting to use the man's 'sweat to pay for his trillion dollars in new spending.'"[30] McCain also ran several other commercials with this theme.

He had no qualms about cashing in on a nationwide reference to "Joe the Plumber" and he repeatedly sought out the spotlight after that. Did they start slamming him on the 17th? 18th? 24th? Wiki doesn't say. Was it Joe Wurzelbacher or "Joe the Plumber" that was being slammed? I'd bet a LOT of people that know "Joe the Plumber" wouldn't know Joe Wurzelbacher from Adam. You guys didn't use Joe Wurzelbacher's name, you said "Joe the Plumber". Gotta' be pretty damn popular if you've got your own national moniker.

    so since fluke only appeared on cnn and msnbc, she doesn't count, So tell me at what point is slaughtering an average civillian with baseless attacks and vulgar expressions, ok with you, based on thier level of popularity?

    Where is the line?

    Fluke just doesn't understand how she's nothing more than a pawn of the Left.

    Just like what's-her-butt--Cindy Sheehan. After Bush left office, no one even knows who she is, anymore.
