I have the intelligence to understand the difference between what is meant by a "public" and/or a "private individual"/"non-pub lic" figure" as those terms relate to slander and libel litigation. Do you?<quoted text>
You don't say, now do you Mittens?
I guess you don't have the intelligence to understand the difference between personal insults at a participating member and a public figure now do you?
I have no idea what you mean by the term "participating member" (sounds kind of sexual), and I've never heard that term used in relation to a slander/libel action.
If you're trying to say that Mr. Mittens, because he is not an elected official, is therefore by definition not a "public figure", and should therefore be protected and exempt from the satirical criticism and humorous attacks of others, I would say that you don't have a clue what you are talking about, and are wrong on both of those issues.
