Sharpton's Bluff

It has been fascinating watching Rush Limbaugh absorb the past week's ridiculous slanders and transcend the whole dirty lot. And now, bonus of all boni, the Reverend Al Sharpton is threatening to sue Limbaugh for something. Not sure what, but no matter.

I like this area very much.

Jammie Wearing Fool has the Comedy Gold
Ace has the real-life implications.

Compare:

Under Miranda
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to have an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you. Do you understand these rights?

Under Obama
Shut up. If you don't shut up, we can and will use made-up and defamatory quotes against you in the court of public opinion. We’re also going to legislate your right to due process out of existence. In the meantime, if you cannot afford a million-dollar attorney, see ya -- wouldn't want to be ya. Do you understand we own you?

Sharpton is bluffing of course. There is no way on Earth to reasonably hope he is serious; it all has to do with a little problem called "discovery".
