1. Shame on Time
Edited on Sat May-02-09 03:46 PM by fugop
Shame on Time for giving Coulter yet another place to spew her hateful garbage. I read a couple of the writeups, and they seemed nicely written, appropriately complimentary, etc. Then I opened the Palin one by Coulter, and it's just another nasty screed that chooses to pretend it's complimenting Sarah Palin, but in fact it's just another excuse to attack progressives in her usual hateful manner. Frankly, it's my own fault. I thought maybe I'd get a laugh at her talking about how wonderful Sarah Palin is, but instead, it's just an embarassing writeup that has nothing to do with Sarah Palin really. It's just using Palin, as usual, to bludgeon the left.

I'm reminded again of why people have stopped listening to right-wingers. The Coulters and Limbaughs of the world have nothing to offer but hate. I don't know why I continue to be surprised at how one-track they are, but ... it is what it is. Shame on Time for giving that nasty piece of work space to just vomit her hatred all over the place. They couldn't have found someone who would at least focus on the subject at hand?

2. No, thank them. Link that psycho to Palin and the right.
Most mainstream folks can't stand her. Associate Palin and the right with Coulter and you're going to damage them even more.

It'd be like Obama's article being written by Rev. Wright.
