UPDATE: Soros Heeds the Call!
Yesterday, I wrote, "Can't someone--the DNC, MoveOn, a 527--take up the righteous cause of just vengeance" against the right-wing slime machine?
Today, George Soros, the financier and 527 angel, may have heard the call. He was recently slimed by House Speaker Denny Hastert
, who said "I don't know where George Soros gets his money. I don't know where - if it comes overseas or from drug groups or where it comes from," and continued on in this vein, implying that Soros was some kind of drug kingpin.
Soros has struck back, sending a letter to Hastert demanding an apology. He doesn't specifically mention legal action, but seems to hint at it, using what sound like legal code-phrases to me. Soros charges Hastert with "slander" and demands that he "publicly apologize for attempting to defame my character and damage my reputation."
I wonder how much damage to a multi-billionaire's reputation is worth? A hundred million? A billion? Sue him George!
