A Rent Boy Named Sue

(Just this one.)

Slapheaded It-Whore James Guckert has just celebrated the one-year anniversary of his infamous -- and inaccurate -- Harry Reid soup lines question to George W. Bush. We all know what happened next.

As James is likely aware, the statute of limitations for libel and slander in many jurisdictions is one year from the first date of publication. We're certain Guckert's high-priced legal team at Hinderaker, Johnson & Mirengoff LAP is putting the finishing touches on James's complaint for defamation.

California seems an ideal jurisdiction for filing since, according to the EFF, its laws provide that it's "Libelous (when false)" to "[d]escrib[e] a woman as a call girl." The punitive damages flow like wine. And the state is one of the most sex worker-positive in the nation.

James also has offered his services to "Scooter" Libby. To testify at Scooter's trial, that is. Anything else is negotiable.
