    Well, I tuned in via internet --- Rush isn't on today.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    They don't stay experts for long if they say things that are patently wrong on black letter law.

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What stupid things did left wing pundits say about Sarah Palin? That she was dumber than a bag of hammers?

    She is dumber than a bag of hammers.

    No they don't. To be honest, I think it's ridiculous how easy it is to be considered a "public figure" for purposes of the law. You don't even have to do anything yourself to become a public figure, if the public is interested in you, you don't have much recourse if people say things about you. Like I say, I don't even agree with that, but that's where the case law has essentially ended up. At least, in Fluke's case, she put herself out in the public eye. She's not going to have much room to complain that she ended up not liking some of the publicity she, basically, went after.

    She has been described in terms similar or the same as what Rush said about Fluke. The only difference is, in one case it bothers liberals, and in the other case, many liberals cheer it on. /shrug
