I am not the least bit bothered by Ann Coulter calling me a "retarded person." But I do know someone who should be steaming mad about this -- Sarah Palin.
If there were ever a time in America when compassionate voices are needed, now is that time. Elizabeth Edwards had compassion for children, health care, equal rights, the poor, and ending war.
Coulter seems to suggest the voting age should be raised to 26 because young Americans don't have property, spouses, children, jobs or pay taxes. I may not yet have a spouse or children, but, come to think of it, neither does Ms. Coulter.
Even some of the right's most vilified social conservatives are seeing the light, including Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin (who have called for varying degrees of decriminalization or legalization).

A respected news magazine and a (sometimes accurate) tabloid both decide to slime the President in the same week with the innuendo du jour -- the horror of being one of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims, and to sell copies, of course.
In the past couple of weeks, the once-cozy relationship between conservative website World Net Daily and Coulter deteriorated significantly -- perhaps because Coulter appears to be telling the truth.
Sherrod's resignation allows her to join the ranks of high profile Black Americans eagerly demonized in the press.
Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly. Okay, we've all heard of these folks, but whom, if any, do you trust the most, t...
Breitbart gave the right-wing smear machine a momentary black eye. He made news editors, producers, and executives, and that includes those at Fox, more cautious about what they dump on the airwaves to score a hit.
