Douchebag of the Day
Stephanie of Teablogging is being sued by teabagging Less Creepy Bill Whittle for going through public records and discovering that the erstwhile teabagger doesn’t like to pay his taxes until legal actions are taken against him.
A couple of things suggest themselves. First, truth is an absolute defense to a defamation suit. Second, since Leahy has proclaimed himself head teabagger, he’s a public figure. In that case, he’ll have to prove actual malice. Third, if she doesn’t live in Tennessee, and if he’s suing her for more than $75,000, she can remove it to federal court, which would short-circuit Leahy’s states-rights-addled head. Let the good times roll.
