The Ann Coulter brouhaha, in a nutshell.

For those who haven't been following this carefully enough, let me give you the simplified version:

U of Ottawa VP Francois Houle: "Dear Ms. Coulter: While you are in Canada, we would appreciate it if you didn't call for anyone's violent death. It's against the law here."

Canadian Wankersphere

Seriously, that's all you need to know. Thanks for stopping by.

They don't like being taught things like consideration of others, or manners. Which explains... everything.

Most people end up learning that when they finish high school. Conservatives throw a temper tantrum and/or and dish out what they've been advised against.

It's something that did catch the rest of us by surprise, I have to admit. I didn't think I'd have to start teaching people in their 40's how adults are supposed to behave. And since one is pretty much unteachable by that age, it's a very intractable problem.

I can see Ezra Levant being mellowed by wife and children (do your duty and have lots of kids, Ezzie), but the barren and/or single ones (Coulter, the Shaidles, KKKate, etc.) are irremediable.

Now we have an explanation for the behaviour of Wayne, and Bocanut.

Bocanut for sure. Wayne? I don't know. I don't even think Wayne is a real person. How can someone claim to be such a public figure (albeit within what looks like a very small pond) while being so stingy with actual details?
