Lawsuits Going Nowhere- a New Chapter in Idiotic Futility

Remember Bradlee Dean?  He is the "minister" friend of Michelle Bachmann who was invited by Republicans to deliver the invocation one day a few months ago to the Minnesota House of Representatives, and who had to nearly be dragged off the podium in the middle of a vicious attack not only on gays but also on Barack Obama.

Well, when Rachel Maddow reported on this sideshow, she quoted Mr. Dean as follows:

"Muslims are calling for the executions of homosexuals in America. This just shows you they themselves are upholding the laws that are even in the Bible of the Judeo-Christian God, but they seem to be more moral than even the American Christians do, because these people are livid about enforcing their laws. They know homosexuality is an abomination ... If America won't enforce the laws, God will raise up a foreign enemy to do just that."

Well, there you go.  Make of that statement what you want, but Mr. Dean has hooked up with Larry Klayman, the attorney whose 18 bogus lawsuits were central to the Republican attempt to impeach Bill Clinton.  They have now sued Rachel Maddow and MSNBC for $50 million dollars, not one penny of which they will ever see.

Klayman claims Maddow is "trying to destroy Bradlee Dean, trying to destroy Bachmann,"continuing that her comments were the "most outrageous statement I've heard in my entire life, and I've lived a bit here."

More outrageous, apparently, than Klayman's claim from a few years ago that Bill Clinton had committed several dozen murders.

Well, of course, the likes of Klayman can accuse Democrats of being Communist subversives, Muslim terrorists, murderers and non-citizens who have stolen the Presidency, but if Rachel Maddow  repeats Mr. Dean's actual words, and draws the obvious conclusion from them, it's time to whip out the lawsuits.

Don't go spending any of the proceeds from this "lawsuit," guys.  It ain't going anywhere, except into a couple of future episodes of Wingnut Wrapup. 

And next time you want to file an idiotic suit like this, Bradlee, I'd suggest hiring Orly Taitz.  She's cheaper than Larry Klayman, and she can fix your teeth at the same time.

Yeah, I almost guessed that Orly's attorney would be in on this one. Good to see that Rachel is still telling the truth on TV. I gave up watching MSNBC when they parted with Keith Olbermann.

Huh? Suing a news person for reporting what a public figure said? isn't that her job?

I quoted this comment of Dean's on my blog back when he said it -- and now, you've quoted it too. Maybe he can sue us for $50 million too.

Well, I almost linked to some of Bradlee Dean's "heavy metal" music, before realizing that, in the words of a great statesman, "it would be wrong."

The guy is so pathetic. We've got at least three people in our house that can play him into the ground, and we only have three people in our house.
