Today I’m looking through a few blogs and I find a comment somewhere that Ann Coulter doesn’t like Bush’s new nominee for the Supreme Court and that she’s “savaged” him in her most recent column online. So I head over to anncoulter.org to find out what she’s whining about now, secure in the knowledge that it must be that, like most right-wing nutjobs, she wants to continue to overplay the Neo-Con angle. Sure enough. Check this out:
If the Senate were in Democrat hands, Roberts would be perfect. But why on earth would Bush waste a nomination on a person who is a complete blank slate when we have a majority in the Senate! We also have a majority in the House, state legislatures, state governorships, and have won five of the last seven presidential elections ? seven of the last ten! We’re the Harlem Globetrotters now – why do we have to play the Washington Generals every week? Conservatism is sweeping the nation, we have a fully functioning alternative media, we?re ticked off and ready to avenge Robert Bork . . . and Bush nominates a Rorschach blot.
And it occurs to me that right there is the reason why Ann’s so skinny. Hate is literally eating her alive. Now, I’m as upset as the next lib that the Supreme Court effectively installed Bush as president with its decision in Bush v. Gore, but to carry so much hatred for so long about the Bork nomination that you’ve been seeking vengeance for this long against Democrats? Yipes. Not surprising I guess. Hannity and Limbaugh and Coulter like to claim that “libs are unhinged” and “libs are full of hate.” It certainly seems like they identify with the words “unhinged” and “hate” much more than we possibly could (why else would they bring it up all the time?), and Coulter has just confirmed it in her latest article.
As for Conservatism sweeping America, she evidently didn’t watch McLaughlin this week, where the host brought up an NBC/WSJ poll that says Americans would prefer Democrats in charge of Congress in 2006. Forty-seven percent would like to see Democrats control Congress after the 2006 elections, while only forty percent would like Republican control. It’s clear that America has not embraced the Neo-Con agenda. Why do you think that is? Perhaps because it’s been a complete and utter disaster at home and abroad? Terrorism up sharply last year, the economy keeps hobbling along, more job cuts and foreign outsourcing, more uninsured, more poor, more dead, more wounded. Who wouldn’t want a change?
I think Ann’s about to get skinnier.
