Yesterday, I wrote, “We don’t have time to be going after opposing pundits — if we do, the FCC will catch us blindsided and by the time we recover (if we ever do), it will be all over.
Let us indeed say, in one voice, ‘FUCK YOU GUYS, we’re better than you, always HAVE BEEN, always WILL BE.'”
Froth Slosh B’Goth reminds me, “ahh, but it’s not about getting The Felonious Pill-Popper in trouble. It’s about putting the FCC on the spot. They either apply the standards fairly, or they apply them not at all. If they choose to apply them when the theocrats complain about Desperate Housewives, but not apply them agains Limbaugh, then they proove they are a partisan taxpayer financed regulatory arm.”
And Simian Brain points out, “I’m a liberal. Do you know how very little it troubles me that Rush Limbaugh said “dick”? But conservatives literally lose their minds when things like this happen, so I’m waiting for the Congressional hearings, the “chilling effect” on punditry, talk of Rush going to satellite radio, etc…
But where are all those unhappy Christians who are constantly victimized by their own culture, calling for fingers to be chopped off of Rush’s hand as punishment for cursing?”
Either they have convincing points or I’m easily convinced. Either way, I sent off my FCC complaint and today recieved a reply:
