Eric Martin has an excellent couple of posts on how the mainstream media, having spent the last few years shrugging furiously over their complicity in selling the neocons' "9/11WMDAlQaedaSaddamOMG!!!1!!" argument for the Iraq war, now seem intent on repeating that mistake by accepting the neocons' "SurgeSuccessAnbarVictoryOMG!!!1!!" story.
Given that Ann Coulter is, surprise, classless enough to use an obituary for her father as an opportunity to attack, in typically brutish fashion, her political enemies, I don't feel bad at all noting that my suspicions about her career as an insult comic serving as therapy for her deeply rooted parent issues have now been confirmed. All that is left is to pray that my own child never grows to love/hate me enough to turn my dead body into a bludgeon.
