Lawyers for TV überdouche Glenn Beck go after satirical website, saying the url itself is defamatory

"500x_Picture_8.jpg Conservative television dirtbag Glenn Beck, formerly of CNN, now of FOX, is none too happy with the domain name
(website is down). Beck's lawyers are attacking this satirical website, which has only been up for one week, on the grounds that the very domain name is defamation. That's right, the url, apart from the contents. Apparently the whole thing started with Fark and Gilbert Gottfried. I'm confused, but Ars Technica has an exensive post up: Can a mere domain name be defamation? 
Who WOULDN'T defame this shitstain given the opportunity?

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
