The Wages of Assholery — about 85 Large.
Though I can’t say I’m thrilled with the litigious turn the blogosphere seems to be taking of late, some things are so wrong as to call for serious measures and this was one of them. That’s what the Law is there for, and sometimes, it even works.
That said, we might want to resist the temptation to get too caught up in schadenfreude; Libel is far from the exclusive preserve of the right. I’ve seen progressives do it casually and carelessly and almost certainly, unknowingly, but ignorance doesn’t make a statement any less libelous. Use the Googles, kids, preferably before you hit “publish”.
Congrats CC, may all your Twatsmases be green.
