Ann Coulter: Unleashed
The Anchoress has the best post on Ann's not so discretionary comments in her latest book. No particular group in society is free from particularly harsh commentary when they get together in their own circles, but to air them publicly is absolutely not beneficial to the cause. I don't agree with some of the vitriol in turn being hurled at Coulter, she's always been painfully outspoken... it's her schtick, what she does. The big difference between conservatives and liberals is that we have Ann Coulter to do this, and they have... most of the people on their side, which makes it not seem quite as bad. There's something to be said however for moderation in the public discourse, while not moderating core beliefs or acting on said beliefs. While she is entertaining, smart, and clever, giving ammunition to the left is unacceptable.

In defense of Ann, read the book for yourself.

There's a great article here (also linked in the article) on the 9/11 widows.

Update 06/9/06:
Just to put thing in perspective, remember the contractors in Fallujah that were burned, dismembered, and hung from a bridge? Well, the most popular leftist blogger had something to say about them, and has tried to hide it many times.
...I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.

Chucko! I will read sweetie sweetie pie Anne's book when you read/watch The Da Vinci Code. Maybe we can somehow blend the two in a mega meltdown of a discussion! :) I hope you are doing well! Are you guys playing cornhole anytime soon? :)

Well, I don't have the patience to sit though an entire novel of lightweight propaganda, but I will watch the movie for free some day. Hehehe... mega meltdown. I'm not going to stand up and defend Ann, she can do that herself. What she says is right, but to do so in such an incendiary fashion is hard for anyone to defend but her. I watched Fahrenheit 9/11, isn't that good enough?? We were going to play on Wednesday, but the rains came. I'll shoot you an email and maybe we can hookup this weekend.
