    Well, if I get enough people to go along with me, I could potentially take away the man's livelihood... because of something he said.

    Well, that's how things work. Although, I don't see that happening anytime soon. His audience is too huge.

    Not being a public figure is the legal line in the sand as to who has the right to file an anti-defamation suit.

    She falls under this category because she went before Congress of her own accord, and based on the amount of media coverage, and appearance on the View to boot, she has access to the media to get her own view across.
    If what was said is untrue and it was made to defame her? She has a shot! You cannot just attack people the way Rush attacked this woman. He did not just attack once. He was like a rabid dog looking to kill someone for a drink of water or something

    Just because she went before Congress and on several talk/ news shows does not give him a right to attack her and she went on The View afterwards. He is the bad guy here and folks trying to make her out to be bad are really pissing me off. This woman is a victim of Rush!

    Public official is not the same as a public figure.

    It will be the deep pockets of Rush L. versus the deep pockets of the Democratic Party.
    It appears you have no clue how this works. She will not have to prove she is not a slut but will have to prove that Rush was intent on defaming her and well it is pretty clear he was.

    the feigned indignation by the loony left is hilarious

    what happened to feminist warriors being tough and resilient? they now have become blushing little catholic school girls who take offense over minor nothings
    Minor? Did you really just say this is minor? Rush set out to try to tarnish her image when he did not know squat about her on a personal level! There is nothing minor in the slanderous vicious attacks he made towards this woman.

    And Rush is not a POS attention seeking dickhead? I would think as a good lawyer you would wish to be on the side of fairness here and that would be on the lovely Ms. Flukes side.
