You have lost your standing to lecture on civility.

Look who's talking. You do not have the character to discern that calling someone vulgar names and saying she should make sex tapes is inappropriate.

You a good friend of hers, are you?

No, but she did not, and will not, claim that Rush's comments were "appropriate," "based in fact," etc. If she did, she would be on your level.

Some years back a story circulated that made Hanoi Jane Fonda look very bad. When it emerged that the story was false, all of us here immediately undertook never to repeat it again—because it was not true.

Maybe there are, or were at one time, some conditions under which you would not condone unjust attacks on such people. But in 2012 you use the term "grounded in truth" to try to justify vile comments.

You just acknowledged that it was a joke.

I assume that's the way Rush was thinking, but he realized later it was not "appropriate." If you think you can use that kind of language in real life, and excuse yourself by saying "joke," (not to mention accusing innocent people) you will have real problems.

Once again, slut-joke about virtuous woman, malicious lie. Slut-joke about slut, appropriate.

Says the person who just told me I have no standing to lecture on civility.

Rush’s jokes about Fluke are appropriate because they are grounded in truth, not because they are leveled at someone I dislike.

The latter appears to be the case, although you may have some mental condition I do not understand. If you actually knew enough about Fluke, there might be some basis in fact, but I even then I would not agree it was "appropriate" to make vulgar comments on the radio.

No, I don’t sound like that at all. I sound like someone who, when he encounters someone who argues like a leftist in favor of leftist positions, hypothesizes that he is dealing with a leftist.

Pure lunacy. And no, you did not just make a "hypothesis." You made that accusation. Don't you have better things to do than make baseless accusations?

“Don’t you have better things to do than make baseless accusations?”

I certainly have better things to do than argue with a woman like you, who lacks either the intelligence or the honesty to acknowledge her errors.
