    Libel lawyer: Fluke ‘definitely’ has reason to sue Limbaugh


    "But a prominent Philadelphia trial lawyer who's been involved in a number of high-profile defamation cases still thinks the conservative talker is vulnerable to a defamation lawsuit.

    "I'd like to see her take him to court," Hoyer told the Montgomery Advertiser in Alabama yesterday. "She's not a public figure and, for that reason, she should be able to sue for slander, libel or whatever else might be involved."

    I would certainly take the opinion of someone that has reason to push an agenda wihtout any supporting information over the opinion, backed by actual case law, of a constitutional lawyer and professor that dislikes Limbuagh as much , if not more, then you do.

    Legal experts that you found which agree with your world view? There certainly are enough of them... like I already said... anyone can pay a lawyer to say whatever they want them to say.

They aren't supposed to be one-sided, kangaroo hearings where the party supporting one position only puts on witnesses favoring their view and excludes witnesses who take the opposite view.
    So they should have invited members of the federal government since they would be the "con" side of a Church v State issue then. Very true.

    Snark aside, the people that were invited to the hearing were all religious leaders. If you have a problem that the religious leaders were all men, then I suggest you take it up with them, as its not the government's place to tell religions who their leadership is( as affirmed in a recent 9-0 SCOTUS decision ).

    Yeah, well that's a great hearing. Sort of like having a hearing on abortion rights and ONLY inviting Planned Parenthood. Or having a hearing on gun regulation and ONLY inviting victims of gun violence. See the problem?
    "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."

    The GOP plan is working?

    Recent debate over contraception comes as GOP loses gains among women

    "The fragile gains Republicans had been making among female voters have been erased, a shift that has coincided with what has become a national shouting match over reproductive issues, potentially handing President Obama and the Democrats an enormous advantage this fall.

    In the 2010 congressional midterm elections, Republican candidates ran evenly with Democrats among women, a break with long-established trends. That was a major reason the GOP regained control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Now, female voters appear to be swinging back to Democrats.

    A number of polls show that Obama’s approval among women has risen significantly since December, even as it has remained flat among men. The same trend, which began before the controversy in recent weeks, is also showing up further down the ballot."

    With Reid and Obama, there is no GOP plan to see the light of day.

    And really - is this what the Dems are going to run on? Some DNC tool's faux hearing with her whining about BC costs? This weak sauce makes Mitt look Kingly.
