"This isn't political."

Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem think that the FCC should consider revoking the broadcast licenses of the radio stations that broadcast Rush Limbaugh's show:
Spectrum is a scarce government resource. Radio broadcasters are obligated to act in the public interest and serve their respective communities of license. In keeping with this obligation, individual radio listeners may complain to the FCC that Limbaugh's radio station (and those syndicating his show) are not acting in the public interest or serving their respective communities of license by permitting such dehumanizing speech. t
They insist that their concern is purely for the public interest, and that "this isn't political."

But some, including Radley Balko, think they might be taking things a bit too far.  What do you think, Mr. Gillette?

I can't help recalling the immortal words of our old buddy Marty: "What is this, Cuba?"
