First Amendment Refresher Required

Yet more from the "can't make this stuff up" folder. Ambulance Pursuit Specialist Gloria Allred desperately needs to get some updating with regard to the First Amendment and its very explicit protection of free speech, particularly as it relates to political expression and public figures.

Allred Wants Limbaugh Persecuted

When a 30-year old woman with a background as an aggressive activist speaks before Congress on the issue of her activism she becomes a public figure and can certainly be the "victim" of satirical characterizations even if we might find the language distasteful and a bit over-the-top.

Meanwhile the left continues to refine their practice of podiacide with encouragement of a sponsor boycott to punish Limbaugh in the pocketbook. They encourage sponsors to protect themselves from avoidance of their products by dropping sponsorship of Limbaugh. As the sniveling knee-jerks react predictably, the marketplace doesn't.

Stock Drops on Fleeing Sponsor and Customers Bail

Isn't it amazing how that all shakes out?

I heard somebody on TV saying Rush was doomed, sponsors were leaving in droves, and it was a matter of days before his show was canceled.
Kinda makes you wonder just how accurate ALL the lamestream media stuff is!
