Ann Coulter Isn't Completely Wrong
Stop the presses! (Or, um, stop the data transfer?)
No, not the part about Bush nominating Barney the Scottish terrier to the Supreme Court ... and no, it's not the bit where she says it is a "good rule of thumb" to hate people from elite universities. It's just past that. It's right around the cheap shot at John Kerry.
Sane comment #1: "Bush has no right to say 'Trust me.' He was elected to represent the American people, not to be dictator for eight years."
Sane comment #2: "Being a Supreme Court justice ought to be a mind-numbingly tedious job suitable only for super-nerds trained in legal reasoning like John Roberts. Being on the Supreme Court isn't like winning a 'Best Employee of the Month' award. It's a real job. "
That said, she does refer to liberals -- specifically those at Ivy League universities -- as "the devil," so we can all rest assured that Coulter has not completely returned to the World of the Reasonable.
(Also helping us reach that conclusion is her little Ann Coulter Photo Gallery -- and by "little," I mean 30 pictures of Ann, Ann, and more Ann. Actually, it's 36 if you could the montages as separate photos. If there's one thing Coulter lovers and haters alike can agree on, it's that Coulter is her own biggest fan. This photo, by the way, is my favorite. Check out those hunting shoes!)
Near the end of her column is this inexplicable sentence: "To paraphrase Archie Bunker, when you find a conservative from an elite law school, you've really got something." I admit, it's been a long time since I've seen All in the Family. But I remember it well enough to have serious doubts that Archie Bunker ever bellowed anything about conservatives from elite law schools. If he did say such a thing and you can prove it to me, I'll take you out for a sandwich.
If you live somewhere other than Washington, though, you pay your way here. I'm just buying the sandwich.
