The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

LIBERAL LUST: I am not a psychologist, nor do I play one on TV, but I cannot help thinking that one of the reasons why liberals loathe Ann Coulter so much is that they secretly lust for her and know they can’t have her. Another is their assumption that only they get to use ad hominem attacks, character assassination, lies, smears, and other general political nastiness, while the folks on the right are supposed to sit there like the metaphorical bump on the log and take it. This is an assumption that no one’s obviously bothered to tell Ms. Coulter about; hence the screams of protest from the left. They don’t think she’s fighting fair. In a political knife fight it helps to have people who enjoy political knife fighting on your side, and on the evidence of her books, columns, and television appearances I’d say Ms. Coulter enjoys political knife fighting.
