Limbaughtomy isn't "testing" the constitution.
He can say whatever he wants but freedom of speech doesn't protect you from the consequences.

If Freedom of Speech has consequences, then it's not free.

As long as you are not advocating harm to anyone in a public forum, you are free to say anything to anyone but that doesn't prevent an advertiser to part ways with you or get fired, those aren't government choices.
The first amendment is only a government mandate not a private one.

Yes, the advertisers can do what they wish. It was funny when I read something today Bill Maher said in defending Rush's freedom of speech:
"ďI donít like it that people are made to disappear when they say something, or people try to make them disappear when they say something you donít like. Thatís America. Sometimes youíre made to feel uncomfortable, okay?Ē
The same article went on to say about the pressure from advertisers:
ďAnd I hear people saying when they put pressure on his sponsors,ĎOh, the system is working.í No, itís not. Thatís the system being manipulated.Ē
All I can say is that it's nice that even he's adult enough to know when things have gone too far.
It would be nice if all the name-calling and stabbing would stop and people would come together and find some solutions for our economy.
