...religion, politics, and other things you should never discuss at bars (but probably do anyways).

The folks over at MoveOn.org will begin airing this ad the week of July 13th. It calls into question George W. Bush's credability and calls for independent investigations into the claims he made before we went to war in Iraq. Click on the picture to view the ad.

There are few people in the talking head group of American politics who are more shamelessly self promoting, shamelessly partisan, unrepentantly lying, and clearly annoying than Ann Coulter. In her recent book Treason:Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism, Coulter goes so far as to not only disagree with Democrats and liberals on the issues, but to accuse them of offering aid and comfort to the enemies of America (US Constitution). Even when Bob Novack tried to help her tone down the rhetoric on a recent episode of Crossfire, Coulter wouldn't take it.

Brendan Nyhan of spinsanity.org writes an article on the book which I think that everyone should read - especially for those poor souls who actually buy into what she writes. He describes her last book Slander saying:

From deceptive footnotes to mischaracterized quotes to outright lies, Coulter broke all standards of reasonable political debate in her quest to paint a picture of a media that is unambiguously hostile to conservatives.

Oh, and by the way, she considers Sen. Joseph McCarthy to be the victim of red baiting. And Jimmy Carter committed treason by accepting the Nobel Peace Prize.

From a forward:

-go to google.com

-type in "weapons of mass destruction"

-click on "I'm feeling lucky" instead of the "Search" button.

-look closely.



God writes a lot of comedy...
the trouble is,
he's stuck with so
many bad actors
who don't know how
to play funny.
