Sometimes a Certain JusticeVia Salon.com I came across this beautiful video of Anne ("Stop me if you've heard this one before") Coulter getting stepped all over.
Things to enjoy: Her verdict on the search for Bin Laden: "Irrelevant" and her remark that "Hannity lets me finish". The maraschino cherry on top is the fact that this is the famed "Hannity and Colmes" talk show from the Fox "news" network, where a right-wing flamer named Sean Hannity (he's actually more of a right fielder, as in "so far out in that he's out of the ballpark) stages "discussion" with a slightly-less-so named Colmes. It's as staged and predictable as pro wrestling, of course.
Fox calls it "liberal-conservative debate" or some such.
What this means is: This is the one network a raving Nazi like Coulter could usually expect to be allowed to express her views on unopposed, and they don't!
Eventually she tears off her mike and clearly heads off in a tantrum.
In related news: a much cuddlier Coulter. Perhaps it's like pandas, and if we get them together they'll mate?
Nah--some things you just can't force a horse to do.
And just to round up the news: Progress on the war on terror. I've mentioned in other places that one of the advantages England seems to have in fighting this "war on terror" is that they actually treat it as a crime--a gradiose and vicious one to be sure, but nonetheless a crime (thank god for appointed judges). But recent noises from the White House indicate that the protection of law for terror suspects meets with a certain disapproval.
I think that as long as they're going to harrass people who haven't actually done bugger-all, and continue to profile anyone who looks a little too tanned, they need to make damn sure to apply the protection of British law to anyone coming within their sweep.
