Well, you knew the recent Ann Coulter dumbassitude was just too front-page for every Blogging Tory to ignore it (although, God knows, it's not for lack of trying). So let's check in on one of them who actually worked up a little ... well, I'm not sure you can quite call it "outrage":
Ann Coulter definitely took her comments too far at the CPAC conference.
OK, Jordan, that's a good start. A good start. Now let's run with it.
Being such a high-profile conservative, she definitely expanded the view of some that the right is intolerant.
"Expanded the view?" Yeah, you could say that, Jordan. But come on, you can do better than that. Then again, maybe not:
Although this couldn't be farther from the truth, anyone who would previously say that now has a target for that finger-pointing.
Um ... huh? "Couldn't be farther from the truth?" I'm sorry ... are we reading the same press coverage here? But Jordan continues like the spineless pussy that he is:
Coulter said it was a joke - listen; those are the kinds of jokes for private. You tell those kinds of jokes to friends, family, people you know won't take offence. A recent Canadian study showed that a good deal of Canadians tell these types of jokes. In itself there is really nothing wrong with jokes like that; but keep them between you and those close to you. I wouldn't be yelling them out to the media.
Damn straight. You can think that kind of shit -- just don't say it out loud. At least, not when the media's around. Then Jordan finishes with a flourish:
Time to apologize, and move on..
You bet, Jordan. Especially that "move on" part, since it would be really annoying if everyone didn't just drop this whole issue since it's so ... so ... yesterday, know what I mean?
And, by the way, it's still Bill Clinton's fault, right?
NO, REALLY, HE ACTUALLY WROTE THIS. Check out the comments there, where Jordan actually puts fingers to keyboard to produce:
Well the comments don't mean she's intolerant - they just give the impression she is.
And Kathy Shaidle isn't really a mean-spirited, raving bigot. But if you read her work, you just might get that impression. Funny how that works.
