Leftwingers are real big on boycotts and trying to get people fired. But at least one doesn’t think it is so funny now. The voice in the commercials that say “save up to 15% at GEICO” has been dismissed from his job for using his highly recognizable voice to leave a voicemail in the mailbox of Tea Party group Freedomworks asking how many of its members were “mentally retarded” and what the response would be when a member inevitably killed someone.”
Ooopsy. Freedomworks complained vigorously to GEICO and he got canned. Now he wants to sue. Any lawyer dumb enough to take on the case, knock yourself out.
Here is the reality, folks. We have freedom of speech in America, so you and I can say any damn stupid shit that we want. Hell, that’s what keeps me blogging-damn stupid shit.
But then you gotta be a man and suffer the consequences. Whether it’s a fat lip, the loss of sponsors, the loss of friends, or even the loss of your job. Sucks when it happens, but you should think of that before you say it. Unless yer like me, too stupid to give a damn for the consequences, and too poor to be sued. Being “judgment proof” has at least that as a benefit.
