Via Seeing the Forest, I learn that right-wing nut radio personality Michael "Savage" has sued various websites that make fun of, and express opposition to, his hateful and ignorant rants. Among them is Savage Stupidity. I spent some time on that website this morning, looking at the Complaint that "Savage" filed, and looking at various materials on that site. The suit is clearly frivolous in a legal sense, because the site is obviously protected by the First Amendment. (I suppose that it's theoretically possible that there was some actionable stuff on the site at some earlier date that has been taken down in response to the suit, but I see no indication anywhere that such is the case). You can donate to the defense at Savage Stupidity, or take other action as you see fit.
