“You’re fired. Sue me.” (August 13, 2012)
. . .
Er “104 degrees and you are listening to that fiery crap on Anger Mongering radio. That poison only makes you hot under the blue collar. On my time and on my dollar.”
Ee “Listening to what?”
Er “AM radio. Anger Mongering radio. You know, radio that stokes hate and provokes rage. So that is your politics. What if I cut your pay to a dollar an hour?”
Ee “I’d sue you.”
Er “What if you were stuck with a Republican judge who tossed you out of court and assessed you for fees and costs?”
Ee “Then I would demand a Democratic judge.”
Er “You elect a Republican judge and then you select a Democratic judge. How does that work?”
Ee “Because I’m a Republican.”
Er “That might not work and you might not work. What if only Republican judges get elected?”
