Ann "Eva Braun" Coulter

I try to stay away from the subject of the ever-evil Ann Coulter, but this one I couldn't pass up. Hawking another crap-ass book, Coulter sticks her large foot in her larger mouth again and makes a blatant anti-semitic comment.

From Media Matters:

During the October 8 edition of CNBC's The Big Idea, host Donny Deutsch asked right-wing pundit Ann Coulter: "If you had your way ... and your dreams, which are genuine, came true ... what would this country look like?" Coulter responded, "It would look like New York City during the [2004] Republican National Convention. In fact, that's what I think heaven is going to look like." She described the convention as follows: "People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America." Deutsch then asked, "It would be better if we were all Christian?" to which Coulter responded, "Yes." Later in the discussion, Deutsch said to her: "[Y]ou said we should throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians," and Coulter again replied, "Yes." When pressed by Deutsch regarding whether she wanted to be like "the head of Iran" and "wipe Israel off the Earth," Coulter stated: "No, we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say. ... That's what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. You have to obey laws."

Is there any group that the new Queen of Mean doesn't hate? (She inherits the name since Leona Helmsley kicked the bucket.) Democrats, liberals, progressives, Muslims, African-Americans, Latinos, gays, and now Jews - you name it, Ann hates it. But hate sells, and Coulter knows this all too well.

Oh Those Tough On Terror Republicans

Can someone please tell me why anyone thinks Republicans are better at national security?

A private intelligence company that infiltrated terrorist groups and had obtained the latest Osama Bin Laden video ahead of it's schedule release, informed the White House with the caveat that secrecy was of the utmost importance.

Within 20 minutes, a range of intelligence agencies had begun downloading it from the company's Web site. By midafternoon that day, the video and a transcript of its audio track had been leaked from within the Bush administration to cable television news and broadcast worldwide.

...this premature disclosure tipped al-Qaeda to a security breach and destroyed a years-long surveillance operation that the company has used to intercept and pass along secret messages, videos and advance warnings of suicide bombings from the terrorist group's communications network.

Heckuva job, Bushies.
