Coulter: Self-congratulating bombastic witch

Coulter calls 9/11 widows “witches” – Yahoo! News:

“I am tired of victims being used as billboards for untenable liberal political beliefs.”

I read a bit of Ann Coulter’s published extract of her new book today, just to see if she’d learned anything in the intervening months since her last screed appeared. Except for the fact that she’s descended to attacking widows who disagree with neoconservative policy, she’s the same wretched logician and feckless demagogue as before. There’s nothing new here. No thoughtfulness, only invective that, amazingly, she has turned on the very people whom she and her ideological colleagues have hung their untenable political policies for the past five years.

No pointage to Coulter, who doesn’t deserve any.

Want to read a neocon who is thinking? Try Francis Fukayama’s new book, America at the Crossroads: Democracy, Power, and the Neoconservative Legacy, which holds to some of the same insanely hegemonic thinking he advocated before while actually taking into account the military and diplomatic record of the Bush Administration. I urge you to read any American commentator who is struggling to explain reality. If there’s no struggle for the author, they are clearly ignoring something. Coulter, who sees the world through monochrome glasses that paint all that is liberal as black and bad while all that is conservative is white and good, is simply trying to spread hateful nonsense.
