Teh Shark Jumps Coulter




Posted at 20:46 by Gavin M.

[Note from the typesetting dep't: This has been sitting in the queue over at Gilly's place since last Monday, and is, like Ann herself, quickly approaching its expiration date. When they post it there, we'll do a redirecty-thing.]

If you’re as bad a person as we are, you’ve been wondering what ol’ Ann Coulter has been up to lately besides her annual yam-smearing performance-art piece at the Conservative Political Action Convention — where last year she famously called people of Arab descent ‘ragheads,’ and this year called John Edwards a ‘faggot.’

Like Ann herself, CPAC comes only once a year, and Ann’s attention-getting powers have been waning of late, forcing her inexorably off the serious talk shows and into the conservative equivalent of the dinner-show circuit — foundation-funded lecture appearances, foundation-guaranteed book royalties, a column foothold at the foundation-supported Human Events Magazine. Ann is expensive, and her usefulness is no longer as clear as it was a couple of years ago, when she rated a cover story in Time Magazine. Add to the situation that Michelle Malkin is creeping up like Eve Harrington to Ann’s Margo Channing, conducting an all-media campaign to clean up her smeary credibility and steal Coulter’s position as America’s favorite wingnut firecracker, and you’ve got a woman in trouble.

What does Ann do? She does what made her famous in the first place, only more of it — and that means super-hysterical attention-seeking tantrums. Let’s gawk!

LET THEM EAT TOFU!
By Ann Coulter
Legal Affairs Correspondent, Human Events

Even right-wingers who know that “global warming” is a crock do not seem to grasp what the tree-huggers are demanding. Liberals want mass starvation and human devastation.

Cripes, two sentences in, and already she’s onto us.

Forget the lunacy of people claiming to tell us the precise temperature of planet Earth in 1918 based on tree rings. Or the fact that in the ’70s liberals were issuing similarly dire warnings about “global cooling.”

This was because of the cooling trend from the 1940s to the 1970s, which we induced with our giant polar lasers.

Now, Ann: In the ’70s, conservatives were issuing dire warnings about a “cold war.” And now it’s allegedly a “hot war?” Once you conservatives make up your minds about the temperature of this so-called war you’re always talking about, we’ll think about espousing global stay-the-sameing. No promises; we shall betray you at our whim. Muaha, resistance-is-useless, seize-them.

Simply consider what noted climatologists Al Gore and Melissa Etheridge are demanding that we do to combat their nutty conjectures about “global warming.” They want us to starve the productive sector of fossil fuel and allow the world’s factories to grind to a halt. This means an end to material growth and a cataclysmic reduction in wealth.

And then we unleash the giant metal insects.

There are more reputable scientists defending astrology than defending “global warming,” but liberals simply announce that the debate has been resolved in their favor and demand that we shut down all production.

More reputable scientists defending astrology?! If only there were some way to evaluate this claim, perhaps via the Internet…

Global Warming Sceptic Bingo
Posted by Tim Lambert

Reading and listening to global warming sceptics can get a little tedious because they keep trotting out the same discredited arguments. So I’ve come up with a little game you can play to make it more interesting. I call it Global Warming Sceptic Bingo! Just tick the box when they use the argument next to it. Get four in a row and you win!

Huh. I see every single argument in this column on the bingo grid, except for the one about astrology.

greatgazoogle.jpg
“Sorry, dum-dum. It’s uniquely stupid.” [Zeerp!]

Well. You don’t run across one of those every day.

Oh yeah, right: death, starvation, destruction. Must stay on plan.

They think they can live in a world of only Malibu and East Hampton — with no Trentons or Detroits. It does not occur to them that someone has to manufacture the tiles and steel and glass and solar panels that go into those “eco-friendly” mansions, and someone has to truck it all to their beachfront properties, and someone else has to transport all the workers there to build it. (And then someone has to drive the fleets of trucks delivering the pachysandra and bottled water every day.)

Hey, an army of genetically-engineered ape slaves. What could go wrong?

pro-chimp media bias

Liberals are already comfortably ensconced in their beachfront estates, which they expect to be unaffected by their negative growth prescriptions for the rest of us.

There was more energy consumed in the manufacture, construction and maintenance of Leonardo DiCaprio’s Malibu home than is needed to light the entire city of Albuquerque, where there are surely several men who can actually act. But he has solar panels to warm his house six degrees on chilly Malibu nights.

Oh, Great Gazoogle! Was there more energy consumed in the manufacture, construction, and maintenance of…

greatgazoogle.jpg
“No.” [Zeerp!]

…city of Albuquerque? Oh.

Liberals haven’t the foggiest idea how the industrial world works. They act as if America could reduce its vast energy consumption by using fluorescent bulbs and driving hybrid cars rather than SUVs. They have no idea how light miraculously appears when they flick a switch or what allows them to go to the bathroom indoors in winter — luxuries Americans are not likely to abandon because Leo DiCaprio had solar panels trucked into his Malibu estate.

Until the (heh heh) earthquake ray changes their mind. Seriously, Ann, there’s this thing called a ‘light bulb,’ and another called a ‘toilet.’ The one is what keeps not appearing over your head whenever you don’t
have an idea, and the other is where you jettison the lobster thermidor while the dessert plates are coming.

“Global warming” is the left’s pagan rage against mankind. If we can’t produce industrial waste, then we can’t produce.

This is certainly true for Ann.

Some of us — not the ones with mansions in Malibu and Nashville is my guess — are going to have to die. To say we need to reduce our energy consumption is like saying we need to reduce our oxygen consumption.

Notice she didn’t say ‘eat less.’ Ann has been looking more like a Christian Dior stick-insect than usual lately. But hold onto your seat — now she really gets going:

Liberals have always had a thing about eliminating humans. Stalin wanted to eliminate the kulaks and Ukranians, vegetarian atheist Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate the Jews, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wanted to eliminate poor blacks, DDT opponent Rachel Carson wanted to eliminate Africans (introduction to her book “Silent Spring” written by … Al Gore!), and population-control guru Paul Ehrlich wants to eliminate all humans.

See, there’s where we liberal Nazi-commie-environmento-contraceptionists reveal Ann as a dilettante. She only wants to exterminate the Muslims. We want it all!

Not that we’re as successful as we’d like. There’s another bingo page over at Deltiod for the lie about Rachel Carson and the nonexistent ‘Third-World ban on DDT’ that certain right-wing lobbyists keep trying to push. Margaret Sanger — well, contraception kills billions of sperm, truly, but so does Ann’s gaze.

But global warming is the most insane, psychotic idea liberals have ever concocted to kill off “useless eaters.”

Ever? Even more than the time machine we built to drop bubonic plague bombs on the Lost Kingdom of Unicornia, to prevent Sparkly the Unicorn from developing her Universal Prosperity Ray?

That was pretty insane, Ann. We’re beginning to think you have a tendency to exaggerate for effect.

If we have to live in a pure “natural” environment like the Indians, then our entire transcontinental nation can only support about 1 million human beings.

Surprisingly, this is also wrong.

Sorry, fellas — 299 million of you are going to have to go.

And shockingly, Ann didn’t even check her population figures, because this is more than the total population of the US.

Proving that the “global warming” campaign is nothing but hatred of humanity, these are the exact same people who destroyed the nuclear power industry in this country 30 years ago.

Dammit, we needed the uranium for our radioactive robot monster, ok?

If we accept for purposes of argument their claim that the only way the human race can survive is with clean energy that doesn’t emit carbon dioxide, environmentalists waited until they had safely destroyed the nuclear power industry to tell us that. This proves they never intended for us to survive.

Seriously here for a second. Can you imagine that a normal human being is typing this stuff — let alone a lavishly-rewarded, mansion-inhabiting author and columnist? Fun’s fun, but when your writing start to literally (not just metaphorically) resemble the text of Sharpie-scrawled jeremiads taped to subway-station pillars, then people start to wonder not only why you’re still famous, but why you’re being allowed to run around unsupervised in a world full of innocent bystanders.

“Global warming” is the liberal’s stalking horse for their ultimate fantasy: The whole U.S. will look like Amagansett, with no one living in it except their even-tempered maids (for “diversity”), themselves and their coterie (all, presumably, living in solar-heated mansions, except the maids who will do without electricity altogether). The entire fuel-guzzling, tacky, beer-drinking, NASCAR-watching middle class with their over-large families will simply have to die.

(Bwahaha!) No, Mr. Naked Trucker and Mr. T-Bones, we don’t expect you to beg. We expect you to…die.

It seems not to have occurred to the jet set that when California is as poor as Mexico, they might have trouble finding a maid.

Like, because there will be so many people around looking for work? Unlike most points in this column, this seems poorly thought-out.

Without trucking, packaging, manufacturing, shipping and refrigeration in their Bel-Air fantasy world, they’ll be chasing the rear-end of an animal every time their stomachs growl and killing small animals for pelts to keep their genitals warm.

Woo, sounds even kinkier than the Good Vibrations catalogue, or other haute-bourgeois amenities of that nature. But one thing: Where is the tofu? The title promised tofu. We distinctly do not see the tofu in this equation, and the lack of a promised Utopian future of tofu — a tofuture as it were — totally harshes on our entire plan to destroy the…

Because, okay. Seriously now. Better column title: ‘HAIL SEITAN’

    See, I actually work in the shipping/transportation industry, which I assume is another thing she knows nothing about.

    Ann just takes standard right-wing media talking points to hilarious extremes (“DDT opponent Rachel Carson wanted to eliminate Africans”). That’s not really offensive. It’s just strange.

    Her act doesn’t annoy me because I don’t think she believes what she is saying.

    The only thing we have to worry about are the people who fall for this stuff. That segment of society would start pogroms tomorrow if enough right-wing media personalities told them to.

    I think I can explain why Ann Coulter still has a job despite being obviously insane. In one of his books (Napalm and Silly Putty, I believe), George Carlin sketched out a plan where we take four distinct groups of social degenerates (violent criminals, sex offenders, hopeless substance abusers and maniacs), throw them into giant prison colonies and let them do whatever they want while we film it. Referring to that last group, he noted that we should only lock up the truly dangerous crazies – your regular, run-of-the-mill street crazies being so damn entertaining that we really ought to give them their own radio shows.

    Someone took that last suggestion seriously. It’s the only explanation that I accept.

  25. Gerald Fnord said,

    March 13, 2007 at 22:15

    Of course, it all makes perfect sense to me now! The reason I, as a liberal, want to see both the government and private industry to invest large sums into the research and development of alternative forms of fuel to keep the lights on after the oil runs out… is because I want everybody to die.

    Wow, thanks Ann! I am the one I warned me about.

    Ann Coulter’s boatload of straw men are really hoping we don’t notice the over-the-limit haul of red herrings.

    Seriously, environmentalists want us as a species to reduce our use NOW to reduce the possibility of a crash LATER. If she thinks things like buying locally-produced products, improving efficiency and reducing waste(a more realistic reading of what environmentalists want than “starve the productive sector of fossil fuel and allow the world’s factories to grind to a halt”) will be detrimental, how about an oil squeeze? And even if folks were later found to have been cautious, how can anyone think improved efficiency and sustainability is bad? Especially when, according to the government, small, painless steps really can make a big difference?

  29. Liberal said,

    “I’m in constant awe of her ability to get paid for that.”

    Fact: if Ann didn’t dress like a slut, and wasn’t 114lbs, if she were instead, say, 250 lbs, no one would pay attention to her. Same for Malkin. RIght wingers only read woman who they can fantasize about. This could possibly emanate form not ever getting any.

    OMG! What would the world do without Detroit? That’s the real America where the common folk in their workaday auto executive jobs decided that cheap gas and American’s appetite for gi-nourmous SUVs made in Mexico was worth betting the long-term future on. Imagine the economic horror that Detroit would be suffering right now if the far left had made them build more fuel efficient vehicles. Everyone knows you can’t reduce pollution and be globally competitive. It takes a real American in Detroit to fail at both of those simultaneously. It’s not like using Detroit as an example of how American industry is supposed to work is a hopelessly out of touch example used by flaky overpaid hysterically desperate right wing schlock pundit to show how quickly she can sabotage her own argument mid-sentence.

    tigrismus, this is kind of what I keep asking them. I mean, ok, we can take various approaches to the apparent threat that greenouse gasses appears to pose. Sure, we could shut down all manufacturing, refining, electricity generation and agriculture. But nobody is calling for that. I’m pretty sure that being smart folks we could begin to address climate change without crippling anyone’s economy. Denying that the problem exists seems a much stupider appoach than a considered process that introduces green technology/methods into our economy without a major impact. In fact, green technologies will obviously be a huge weath generator in the coming decades. It just makes no sense…

    His defense? There’s no such thing as a “neutral encyclopedia article, and the fact that the Wiki article mentions Thomas Jefferson as one of the intellectual originators of the Democratic party is purely specious”.

    Yeah, I never quite understood why Republicans champion tax cuts for the most wealthy, don’t have a problem with the rising gap between executive compensation and average work compensation, yet Teresa Heinz Kerry is evil because she wears expensive shoes, John Edwards is evil because he has a big house, and Barbra Streisand is evil because she is chauffered.

Not the cold, time-slows-down kind of rage that has occasionally saved me from my own stupidity, but a much more elemental kind of rage that makes me want to tear my clothes off, fashion a loincloth out of the nearest mammal’s skin, dance around the fire in an incoherent, spluttering rage, paint my face with ashes moistnened with urine and beat all the idiots repeatedly with a crude hardwood club…

    The fact that Mark Wahlberg turned out to be such an incredibly talented actor has forever tainted one of the fondest memories of my childhood.

    I used to ruthlessly mock NKOTB fans for liking a group of such obvious no-talent, pseudo-singer wannabe hacks(I was just the right age to be in their prime demographic). And when Marky Mark graduated to his solo work with the Funky Bunch, the whole lack of talent thing only got funnier.

    But now, I will never again be able to say that Mark Wahlberg is a no-talent hack. He’s a damn fine actor, and I hate him for that. What other childhood icons of mockery will be taken away from me?

    “Marky” Mark Wahlberg was never a New Kid On The Block. You’re thinking of the truly untalented Wahlberg, Donnie.

    Actually, even Donnie isn’t completely bereft of talent. He has a decent little acting career going. He was in “The Sixth Sense” and “Band of Brothers.” He mostly does TV stuff now.

    His best career moment came in 1991, while on tour with NKOTB. He tried to set a hotel room on fire with a Molotov cocktail, which is pretty outstanding.

    Secondly….did you know the Conservapedia people have done a study – a real study, mind you, and not one of those biased studies that biased people like population scientists do – and determined – scientifically and without bias – that Wikipedia is six times as liberal as the average American?

    Six times.

    My god. That’s like 6.0221415 × 10^23 times as liberal as your average member of the Republican party, then!

    I propose a new unit of measurement…..whenever anybody who obviously knows fuck all about statistics in the social sciences makes a statistical claim that they obviously pulled out of their ass, let us refer to the measurement as a “Schlafly”.

    For example, if someone were to claim that 53% of Americans still support the war in Iraq, that would be “fifty-three Schlaflys of Americans”.

    In the quote above from Schlafly himself, we would say that Wikipedia is six Schlaflys as liberal as the average American.

    Here’s the intro from Conservapedia’s Ann Coulter entry:

    Ann Coulter (b. 1961) is a bestselling author of books that present conservative views in a direct and forceful manner.

    Some of her books include Godless: The Church of Liberalism, Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, and Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism. Ann Coulter has earned a strong following among conservatives for what many believe is her patriotic stances against liberals, her outspokenness against all those who wish to hurt America, and her strong defense of family values against abortion and same-sex marriage.

    This rest of the entry concentrates on her recent remarks about John Edwards.

    Good start. Needs work.

    I would find it funnier if not for the whole Rwanda debacle. You know in your hearts that Coulter’s “base” (and when has that word seemed so apt?) is just waiting for Rush to announce that it’s Librul-Killin Season. At which point they’ll bring out their precious second-amendment props and go into the street to kill… the neighbor’s cat, probably, if they don’t accidentally shoot one of their own kids and have to derail Operation Wolverine until they’re back from the emergency room and several rounds of harsh disbelief from the local cops. Although I hope the dark-skinned guy at the local gas’n'go has the good sense to get outta Dodge, or at least behind the bulletproof partitions, once Fox News rolls out it “America Held Hostage — By Itself!!!” scary logo & music. Because America, praise Goddess, is too fat and prosperous to really get behind wide-scale murder on our own territory, although there’s certainly a subset of injustice collectors who’d welcome the chance to punish everyone within range for not being as miserable, paranoid, and scared as they are.

    I don’t think Coulter’s crazy. I think she’s a user who’s made a damn profitable living out of encouraging the genuinely borderline-sane to believe in demons and succubi when they should have been paying attention to the real threats to their lives and prosperity. She’s just evil, and (as Gavin so brilliantly proves) she has to keep ramping up the volume of her hatefulness the way any other addict has to keep ramping up the doseage on their favorite drug. And I wish I could believe she’d pay for her sins against her fellow humans, but I don’t think it will happen in this lifetime.

    Huh, no mention of Ann’s early life fighting to leave the slums of New Canaan,CT…or her stint as a roadie with the Grateful Dead which tragically ended at a New Rochelle parking lot after she eaten all of the brown acid. Robert Hunter even penned a song about her:

    She’s Gone

    Rat in a drain ditch
    Caught on a limb
    You know better but
    I know her
    Like I told you
    What I said
    Steal your face
    right off you head

    Now she’s gone
    Lord she’s gone
    Like a steam locomotive
    rolling down the track
    She’s gone
    She’s gone
    and nothing’s gonna bring her back
    She’s gone

    Nine mile skid
    on a ten mile ride
    Hot as a pistol
    but cool inside
    Cat on a tin roof
    Dogs in a pile
    Nothing left to do but
    smile, smile, smile

    Now she’s gone
    Lord she’s gone
    Like a steam locomotive
    rolling down the track
    She’s gone
    She’s gone
    and nothing’s gonna bring her back
    She’s gone

    Going where the wind don’t blow so strange
    Maybe on some high cold mountain range
    Lost one round but the price wasn’t anything
    Knife in a back and more of the same
    Same old rat in a drain ditch
    Out on a limb
    You know better but I know her

    Now she’s gone
    Lord she’s gone
    Like a steam locomotive
    rolling down the track
    She’s gone
    She’s gone
    and nothin’s gonna bring her back
    She’s gone….

    Hmm … from http://www.physorg.com/news91171489.html
    Feb. 20, 2007

    Australia has announced plans to ban traditional light bulbs in a move Prime Minister John Howard called a practical step toward slowing climate change.

    Claiming a world first for a national government, Environment Minister Malcolm Turnbull said incandescent lightbulbs would be phased out by 2010 in favour of the more fuel-efficent compact fluorescent bulbs.

    He said replacing the traditional coiled filament bulbs invented by Thomas Edison in the 19th century would cut Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions by four million tonnes a year by 2015.

    “If the whole world switches to these bulbs today, we would reduce our consumption of electricity by an amount equal to five times Australia’s annual consumption of electricity,” Turnbull said.

    “The climate change challenge is a global one. I encourage other countries to follow Australia’s lead and make the switch to more energy efficient products like compact fluorescent light bulbs.”

    So I guess John Howard and all Australians are gay homos … the worst kind.

Because, anyone can go to this building full of books called a “library” and look up the peer reviewed “scientific journals” or “books” written by “scientists” and scientists who have won these prizes called “nobels”.
    She never cites any of that stuff. NEVER!!!! She doesn’t even make references to stuff that would indicate that she’s even taken a peek at the stuff. She never uses terminology, she never goes into any real area of scientific debate, she simply avoids all the science of it.
    I fail to see how anyone can read this stuff and not see at as a perfect example of someone who is REALLY opinionated over a subject they don’t know jack shit about?

    Camille Paglia continues to get more and more obnoxious. My God, what a ponderous twit. Check out her newest piece of crap on Salon if you’re in the mood to vomit.

    First she rants with a completely straight face about the “liberal bias” of the media. No, really. Here’s a direct quote:

    “It’s as if Democrats, pampered and spoiled by so many decades of the mainstream media trumpeting the liberal agenda, are so shaky in their convictions that they cannot risk an encounter with opposing views. Democrats have ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, the New York Times, Newsweek, Time and 98 percent of American humanities professors to do their bidding. But no, that’s not enough — every spark of dissent has to be extinguished with buckets of bile.”

    Oooh, how contrarian. Here’s another gem about Coulter’s faggot “joke”:

    What could have been a good joke at the expense of p.c. Hollywood misfired badly first because that old chestnut of a schoolyard insult makes no sense whatever when applied to Edwards…

    In other words, that joke would have been funny if Edwards was REALLY a “faggot.” Camille Paglia, you really, really, really suck.

    Okay, one more:

    Coulter is a smart woman with formidable energy, and whether liberals like it or not, she is a high-profile feminist role model in her appetite for aggressive debate.

    Barf. I think Paglia wants to suck Ann’s dick.

Fun’s fun, but when your writing start to literally (not just metaphorically) resemble the text of Sharpie-scrawled jeremiads taped to subway-station pillars, then people start to wonder not only why you’re still famous, but why you’re being allowed to run around unsupervised in a world full of innocent bystanders.

    Dude, I’m wondering why, when i dress up in a simple black cocktail dress and hang about dcys meetings hitting on the cute bearded older men and explaining the evils of solar panels and mooslums, I don’t get paid.

    She has a monthly column now but she did a couple guest columns and interviews in the past few years, all met with scorn from the readers.

    She’s another Coulter. She doesn’t do any research, she doesn’t make any sense or justify her opinions. She is also a shameless self-promoter, talking about her book, what she ate for dinner, etc etc.

    Its would be more entertaining to slap down Mr. Ed Ann and her fellow travellers’ attempts to suggest that “if a Liberal thought of it, it must be wrong” it weren’t for the fact that the consequences of their blind hatred and knee-jerk dismissal have been so grim.

    According to the Wingers, Clinton’s State Dept. just didn’t have the ‘nads to get tough with North Korea on its nuclear program. The deal put in place is the 90s (where the IAEA had cameras in all NK facilities) just showed what a dumb pansy Clinton was ’cause “everyone knew” L’il Kim was just building them in secret bases. Enter Commander Codpiece, who withdraws from the Clinton deal, slaps the “Axis of Eeeeeevil” tag on NK, and starts making demands without concessions. The result? There never were any “secret bases”, NK builds and tests actual nukes and we just signed a deal identical to the one Clinton had in place (you know, except for the “stop them from getting The Bomb” part…)

    Or, remember how Clinton going after bin Laden was just oh so much “wag the dog” bullshit to distract god-fearin’ Americans from the evil blow job scandal and how the CIA was just packed with Democrats who hyped the threat of terrorism to keep themselves in a cushy gubmit jobs? Enter the Boy Wonder and his cabinet Many Men who immediately shifted focus to the real threat, that nasty Saddam, and, who blew off all that “OBL determined to strike in US” Liberal claptrap from the CIA. Why, Dubya himself saw through all that CIA BS and even told the briefer flown in a panic from DC to Crawford to tell him about an imminent threat to go on back home, that he’d “covered his ass”. The result? Two gaping holes in lower Manhattan and a shitload of dead people.

    Global warming? Liberal hoax. Safe food and drugs? Democrats just hate big business. Keep kids safe by teaching safe sex? Democrats hate Jesus!.

    The authoritarians have been holed up in their little media echo chamber, getting high on their own paranoid ass fumes for so long, they’ve lost the ability to tell yesterday’s campaign talking-point from today’s reality. I don’t think they even remember why they hate us anymore, they just do. And that hatred is all they have left.

    she never goes into any real area of scientific debate

    Because, like all these blow-hard wingnut evolution/global warming deniers, they’re are not scientists. Any scientist who ranted like this with such flimsy evidence would find themselves marginilized to a career-stagnating or career-ending fate. That is the power of peer review.

    Add to that the fact she wouldn’t understand what the she was reading about if she actually bothered to reference any of this. She’s not that smart. That is why scientist have to take all those classes and do all that research.

    Thing is, natural forces like evolution and global warming don’t give a fuck whether people “believe” in them or not. They will have their effects without our “consent”. Scientist didn’t “believe” in these forces for some religious or political reason. They are discoveries of natural events. They require no more belief than does the observation of oceanic tides.

    I for one, “believe” we have passed “the tipping point” in global warming and “believe” it has been driven primarily by human activity (oft overlooked: the rate of deforestation as a major player). These are opinions based on what I see as sudden turn-arounds by governments and corporations, and the changes in models for global warming…rate and severity have consistently been scaled upward. (I won’t even go into Insurance companies).

    So Ann can do all the bob-and-weave she wants. Hope she enjoys the aftermath and FEMA fun when a Cat. 5 takes out her Palm Beach mansion.

Then the 2008 presidential candidates have all come out to say they’re for better treatment of wounded pets. Now this is a nice sentiment, but is it really that big a deal?

    Not that I can comprehend it, but it was amusing.

    Honestly, if she wasn’t a paid columnist, she would be one of those people posting photocopied fliers in subways. The right has made a deal with the devil of hatred, and now they’re stuck with quite a few devils they’re reliant on. They can’t stop mainlining hits of Coulter, Malkin, and Limbaugh because its all that arllies people.

    The first thing I read by her was that lame column about the Democratic convention in 2004–the one her editor refused to run. It sounded as though she took a set of refrigerator magnets with stale insults to liberals printed on them and applied them at random. Then she sent in a picture of it for publication.

    Can you imagine her having the same status in wingnutland if she were not a tall, long-legged blonde? With those boxes checked the wingnuts can tell themselves she is attractive, which builds their self-esteem. And I guess her intellect and writing style is a stretch for wingnuts.
