I don't get all this fuss and discussion about so and so called someone a bad name. I'm sure everyone here has seen girls get called c*nts and sl*ts to their faces before a million times already in the real world. I guess if you wanna get outraged over something, get outraged there first.
Well when the person doing the name-calling is someone with more pull in the political world than a teenage girl in a high school cafeteria, I guess people like to point that kinda stuff out.

It would seem that legally, name-calling on the radio or on TV isn't classified as slander but libel instead, which makes no sense to me, personally. Either way, it's worth a good "fuss", imho.

slander legal definition of slander. slander synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.

Republicans don't understand the difference between a word that means a part of a female's anatomy and a word that means someone who sells themself for sex? Really?

And you Republicans wonder why it's oh so easy to frame you as being anti-woman.

You cant get any lower for hating obama for the simple fact that he is a black president, theres really not much more you can say to show your indescriminate hate is there?? If all you right wing nuts are so pissed of a negro sitting in your precious white house then why dont you all just pop a .45mm between your ears?

I mean, i may not agree with everything with what everything clinton or bush stood for but none of us minorities went up in arms to call any of the presidents white trailer trash or crackers have we?
