    Lush Rimjaugbh completely jumped the shark on this one.  To call a brave college student a "prostitute" on national radio is beyond loathsome.

    And I wonder, isn't that ground for a suit for slander?  Ms Fluke is not a person in the public realm, so doesn't she enjoy considerable protections against an aging junky thug trashing her name on the public airwaves?  Might she have grounds for a substantial lawsuit?  I for one would help her file such an action.

    My complaint is when a person with enormous power reaches out to try to squash a young person as though they were a bug.  To my mind that should not be permitted, now or ever.  Or else, we will never have a free and democratic society, since citizens would be afraid to raise their voices.

    Bravo for the President for taking a stand!  I personally would like to see Lush go the way of Glenn Beck.  Let's sign the petition and see if we can get a million names on it this week.  In addition, I think we need to tell the advertisers that if they stay as advertisers with Rush, we will decline having anything to do with the products they sell.  We have a lot of choices in the current marketplace, let's reward principled companies and boycott those who treat us as brainless sheep.
