Sorry, not defaming enough. I saw him set a dog on fire while picking his nose and exposing himself to a busload of senior citizens.

For a Congresscritter, he and his staff have a really poor understanding of the First Amendment, and he ought to go back to school and learn some Traditional American Values.

As a public figure, the limits for what counts as legal defamation are pretty tight. You can certainly say that his mother is a hamster, and he ought to go read the Falwell vs. Hustler Magazine case and see what those notorious activist liberal judges Scalia and Rehnquist thought about defamation of public figures.


He’s a representative. Only a percentage of some people in Michigan voted for him. I’m not one of them as I live in a different district.

It’s a mix of True Believers and apathy that keep him in office.
