This says a lot: The New Yorker's cover was satire, but Rush Limbaugh wouldn't get it.

Keep smoking those cigars Rush!

You're 68-years-old! At least, old enough to know better. You got a great gift, though: Michael Savage is being compared to YOU (for a change!). Actually, you fall short of Savage's remarks by a wide margin. But don't worry, you'll still up there with the best of them!

Defining Hate Speech: Rev. Wright, Michael Savage, or...

FOX News?

(As defined in wikipedia.com):

Hate speech is a term for speech intended to degrade, intimidate, or incite violence or prejudicial action against a person or group of people based on their race, gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, language ability, moral or political views, socioeconomic class, occupation or appearance (such as height, weight, and hair color), mental capacity and any other distinction-liability. The term covers written as well as oral communication and some forms of behaviors in a public setting. It is also sometimes called antilocution and is the first point on Allport's scale which measures prejudice in a society.

Let's think about it!

Catch you later.
