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).
Alex Knepper may have a penchant for the occasional uncouth sexual joke, but David Swindle's assertion that he represents a danger to children is entirely unwarranted -- and potentially libelous.
Will the integrity of the voting system be reinforced, or will a conservative celebrity be given another free pass based upon her popularity, power, and the cadre of elite relationships she has courted?
As one experiences a series of solo performers delivering monologues, it becomes fairly easy to see which actors are secure in their material, which honestly love to work with an audience, and which are still developing their "sea legs."
When it comes to the political talking heads crowding the media platform, who, if any, do we trust the most and the least? Are the facts important or is it all just entertainment?
Ann Coulter never met an incongruity or contradiction she didn't embrace. No reasonable debate can take place on the real issues with incessant name-calling, but Ann then turns around and engages in the very things she says are wrong.
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.
You really think you can dance WIN THIS WAR?? -- Anthony H. Cordesman, the CSIS Arleigh A. Burke Chair in Strategy (not really; just hypothetically...
Reading Laura Ingraham's The Obama Diaries makes you wonder if she's ever even read a parody. I don't want to get didactic, but it's a form that generally contains jokes.
This was not a good week for those in the media who insist on looking at every issue using the exhausted left vs. right framing. First, Barney Frank and Ron Paul took to HuffPost, making the case that substantial cuts in the bloated defense budget must be a central part of the deficit reduction debate currently raging in Washington. Then David Boies and Ted Olson, who fought it out in Bush v. Gore, discussed their joint battle to make gay marriage legal during a compelling session at the Aspen Ideas Festival. Finally -- and most surprisingly -- Ann Coulter, following the path already trod by George Will and the Cato Institute, warned that the war in Afghanistan "isn't likely to turn out well" and criticized today's GOP for making "permanent war" one of the "irreducible requirements of Republicanism." The sell-by date on "right vs. left" has definitely expired.
