Thank God for Ann Coulter!
Ann Coulter at the grave of her hero, Joe McCarthy>
Oh, man, just when I thought we were two weeks away from having nobody left to hate, Ann Coulter slithers out of her hole and comes screaming back to television, telling us that Tom Delay and Joe McCarthy were victims and that Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are "at greater risk" of assassination than our first African-American president.
Whew! Thank goodness for that. I thought sanity had completely returned and was wondering what was going to happen to all that time we've spent complaining about the Bushies for the past eight years.
TV host Harry Smith got the fight started yesterday by calling our spindly blonde "sophomoric," which she immediately translated as "New York Times-speak for 'funny,'" which it may well be, though she isn't. Clever, she is. Quick, she is. Vulgar, she often is. Outrageous, yes. Crude, yep. Stupid, no. Wrong, yes. Funny, not in her wildest, wettest dream.
As if the return of this right-wing prototype wasn't enough to brighten my day, I read this a.m. that Nancy Grace--the highly-regarded professional that gives new definition to "oily lawyer"--has just scored such a significant ratings success that we're assured of having more programs like hers.
I love this country. Honey, where'd you put my book?
