Why do social conservatives have so much trouble seeing equality as equality, insisting every time a besieged minority finally gains equal treatment that they're getting an unfair privilege?
In Ann Coulter's universe, our understanding of the world does not grow and change. Instead, she, like Rick Perry, forms an opinion and sticks to it regardless of what the experts might learn.
When it comes to buying Christian works, and I don't mean just liberal-approved Christian books like Lit, I often buy them online. Why? Well, because I'm embarrassed.
To all those Republicans lamenting the Bachmann imagery, I have to say: "Wait a minute. You started this." When Sarah Palin strode on the convention nominating stage with her tight skirt and traditional values, the fellas on the right said "We're on to something here."

Now that a few days have passed since the Arizona shootings, perhaps it's time to place the analysis of political violence in America in a broader historical perspective.
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).
