Quick, what’s the difference between these two things?

The baseball mitt is smarter than Mitt Romney.

Case in point: Romney gets up the other day and introduces Ann Coulter. He says, "I am happy to hear that after you hear from me, you will hear from Ann Coulter. That is a good thing. Oh yeah!"

Then Ann Coulter gets up and does some nasty gay bashing. She says, "I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards."

Defenders of the Clueless Mitthead insist, “he didn’t know what she was going to say.” Read it in this National Journal article that recounts the event: http://hotlineblog.nationaljournal.com/archives/2007/03/ann_coulter_sla.html

Oh, that poor baby! And on what was Mitt (the candidate, not the baseball glove) basing his happiness that the audience would hear from Ann after hearing from him?

Perhaps it was her kindly, thoughtful and oh-so-incisive comment about the widows of 9-11 victims, “I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much." She called the grieving widows “harpies.”

Did I mention that she has also favored poisoning a United States Supreme Court justice? And bombing the New York Times?

A real sweetheart, this gal!

The National Journal, usually a fortress of reasonably thoughtful conservatism, was excoriated to shreds by its own readers when it tried to defend Romney for introducing her. Go to the URL above and scroll down to the reader postings to see what I mean.

Despite the outrage of Conservatives as well as anti-Conservatives to her unapologetic and in-character utterances, I’m glad she makes them. That’s because her behavior allows a tit-for-tat response, without any apologies required of this cranky commentator.

I mean, if the Mitthead has any kind brain at all, even a vestigial one, he must have figured that he’d get something in return for saying nice things about this five-star witch. Maybe he thought he’d get into her pants.

Mitt, pal, don’t ever go there. I have an uncomfortable premonition that if Ann Coulter ever spreads her legs for you, a huge swarm of flies, worms, gnats, millipedes and bedbugs will come streaming out.

No no, don’t blame me for that last statement. I really didn’t know what I was going to write.

Is this similar to the meme in 2004 which stated: "John Kerry brilliant. George Bush idiot"?

Only to find out GW's grades at Yale were higher than JK's?

Btw, you are right on about Ms. Coulter's characterization of John Edwards. The other F word is more appropos when describing JE, fraud.

Nonetheless you then engage in the very same thing you rightfully accuse her of, vile ad hominemism.

However, despite her uncouth comments, she is hotttt.

There you go again, Gene! I love it when you start foaming at the mouth!

Let's get a few things straight:

First, I should have pointed out in this post that John Edwards is not gay. The Coulterwitch was simply smearing Edwards (and simultaneously and gratuitously insulting gays) by calling him a "faggot." This has already been commented upon ad nauseum by nearly every blogger and columnist on the planet. Thank you for thinking my comments are worth singling out. I feel honored.

Second, how did John Kerry get dragged into your tangential rant? How about if I drag in Ronald Reagan's illegal arms deals with Iran to finance a war when Congress wouldn't go along? How about Warren G. Harding and the Teapot Dome scandal? Stick to the point, if you have one, Gene.

Third, you are right that I engaged in the same thing I accuse Coulter of. It's called bullying the bully. Bully for me!

Finally, if you think Coulter is hot your taste in women somehow reminds me of your taste in politics. I recommend that you look a bit more closely. At both.

That is the beauty of freedom, free markets, and free choice.

Others may prefer a Bella Abzug-type of feminine beauty.

Nah, Gene. Bella's a corpse and necrophilia ain't my thing. Is it yours?

Noted. Who did you have in mind?
