Exactly. Roy Black probably called and said, “No you won’t!” Roy knows that anything can happen once you get into these situations, and you don’t want Sharpton’s attys to begin bringing in the housekeepers and yardmen, and so on from the 1990s.
Yeah, it could turn into a real mess I guess. What was interesting is that on Friday (I think it was) he talked about how grateful he was for all the emails of support, and he said that people were encouraging him to do two things — to sue the media people who used the quotes, and to go after Sharpton. He went on for a few minutes about Sharpton — he basically said to be patient — but he was conspicuously silent on the question of whether he planned to sue. He brought it up but never addressed it. Rush never does anything without a reason, especially after he’s had a few days to think about it, so I’m guessing he let the possibility that he’d sue stay “out there” — kind of as a threat, maybe to scare people into issuing retractions — but with no intention of actually doing it at that point.
