    I am so confused by you sometimes and it has nothing to with not knowing whether you are a chick or dude.
    I think you misunderstood what I said. I have no sympathy for Rush, and think his problem is not his racism(I suspect he is, but could not prove it), but his controversial nature, but if he can prove libel, well, I a a law and order liberal, and I say sue 'em and good luck. Does that clear it up?

    And you did read the part where I said I can't stand the fat ****er, right?

    If we are saying the same thing a different way, how can I be selective in my outrage when I have, for all intents and purposes, the same views as you?

    How about by the exposing of the absolute LIES your beloved leftist media, Sharpton and Jackson used in this fantastic example of a liberal smear campaign!

    Rush is too kind! I'd have every one of your beloved propagandists bent over a deposition table.. but HE chose the "higher road"... shame there's no way to get to that road from the slimy rocks which they hide under... CNN, MSNBC and all the libs that toted the line!

    Here's the thing though. All the good principled liberals are essentially hiding behind a loophole in the law here, that effectively you're almost completely free to libel famous people because its harder to prove you actually did it.

    That doesn't change the actual facts of the matter from a definition, rather than legal, stand point in which the main argument most were using against Limbaugh since it was leaked he was part of the group ("He's a racist") was based on extremely poorly sourced, questionable quotes that were either 100% false or stated without context.

    So what you're basically saying is its completely fine to take extremely questionable factual information about famous people and contextless statements from them and foment rage within a population to screw them out of business ventures because they have less protection under the law.

    Welcome to the modern world. It's done countless times, and by Limbaugh himself. Let's take a look at Politifact's Limbaugh file: PolitiFact | Rush Limbaugh's file

    True: 0
    Mostly True: 1(so far he is better than Glenn Beck)
    Half True: 0
    Barely True: 3
    False: 1
    Pants on Fire: 1

    Distortions, lies, exaggerations and out of context statements are a part of politics. I don't like it, you don't like it, but that is the truth of the world we live in.

I remember reading somewhere that turnabout is fair play - is it?
    Is Alan Colmes even a real person?

    I thought he was just some actor hired by Sean Hannity for patsy purposes.

    Politics

    Public office

    Public Officials

    This is different than PRIVATE enterprise, PRIVATE citizens, PRIVATE contracts...which ultimately even celebrities are private citizens. Even the NFL, or Radio, or a movie is a private business.

    There is a distinct difference between individual citizens, and those entering into business ventures with private companies and those that are public officials seeking public office elected by the public.

    Not to mention your link is hilarious and far to full of itself. Lets take this example:

    "You can't read a speech by George Washington . . . without hearing him reference God, the Almighty."

    Seriously, they're fact checking freaking hyperbole? Really? Do you think most people hear that and honestly, truthfully, believe he's saying every single speech ever by Washington had a reference to god? Its a common, typical pattern of speech to say "you can't hear someone speak without hearing them say [x]" when they use a word or saying a lot. That doesn't LITERALLY mean they can't actually SPEAK without saying it, its a saying, a phrase. Jesus that site makes baby jesus cry.

    Oh crap! PolitiFact may have to rank me as "pants on fire" because its obviously untrue that baby jesus actually managed to cry due to that site since baby jesus was dead centuries
    before hand

    But my bad, I shouldn't besmirch the great reputation of Politifact, I mean, where would we be without their great work fact checking SNL skits about Obama.

    Yes. Limbaugh's the joke, not Politifact.
