Ann Coulter bestows upon Sarah Palin the worst possible insult that any person could ever possible imagine ever…
"She's become, sort of, the Obama of the Tea Party."
Wow! Just wow!
Does she kiss her gold-framed pedestal-mounted signed portrait of Ronald Reagan with that mouth?

Sorry, I don't have time to write a lengthy intro for this clip from last night's Daily Show. I've got to run and do some volunteer work at a shelter for oppressed and downtrodden conservative pundits.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.

Ann Coulter used to make me angry. Then she made me laugh. Now she just makes me yawn.
The Daily Caller recently published a list of ten "shocking" things in Ann Coulter’s book Demonic (Ed note: Demonic!) that will (supposedly) drive liberals crazy.
Most of them are predicated on the assumption that the reader is ignorant (or in denial) that the Republican Party usurped the Democrats' Dixiecratic voting bloc several decades ago ("The GOP has always been the party supporting civil rights, not the Democratic Party"). Others are weird exercises in pretzel logic ("Democrats are anti-science"). Some seem kind of like the ramblings of a schizophrenic ("Liberals are not a part of the American tradition").
Have you been driven crazy yet?
If not, this one might help. It's the one they save for last, and that's because it's definitely the best. And by "best," I mean "Ann Coulter is obviously a very sad person who is desperate for attention"…
"But more important, abortion clinic violence should not be filed under 'Political Violence' at all. It should be filed under 'Things Liberals Won’t Let Americans Vote On.'… When there is no legal process for pro-lifers to pursue to outlaw abortion — unlike every policy liberals violently protest — some pro-lifers will inevitably respond to lawlessness with lawlessness," Coulter writes. "In the first few years after [Planned Parenthood v. Casey], about six more people were killed in attacks on abortion clinics. Most of the abortionists were shot or, depending upon your point of view, had a procedure performed on them with a rifle."
¨There were no more constitutional options left to fight judicial tyranny on the little matter of mass murder,¨ she concludes. ¨Thus, abortion clinic violence is more akin to the Tiananmen Square protests in Communist China than any liberal riot in America. Want to stop violence at abortion clinics? Repeal Roe and let Americans vote.¨
Sigh. So, now it's come to this? Coming out as a apologist for domestic terrorism? (You know, joking about the murder of innocent people isn't normal, but on media attention withdrawal it is!) All this just in the hopes that you'll please pay her a little bit more attention. Get mad at her! Call her stupid! Call her names! Say whatever you want, just please please please don't forget about her.
Look, here's a blog post. That should hold her over for a few minutes.

Do they give out Pulitzer Prizes for brilliant innovations in the fomentation of hatred? Because whomever it was who invented birtherism really deserves some kind of award. Maybe a golden pitchfork?
Conor Friedersdorf expresses the payoff for this ingenious philosophy…
Indeed, half of the Iowa GOP are birthers. It's so much of a problem that Ann Coulter and Karl Rove are out there assuring everyone that President Obama was in fact born in the United States. In doing so, they frame Birtherism as a trap liberals are setting. [Ed note: Hahahahahaha!] They're implicitly criticizing all the mainstream voices on the right who've flirted with Birtherism, but are uninclined to name names, or to come right out and state that what those conservatives did has come back to bite the right.
Some of us have long insisted that the conservative movement was going to pay for its embrace of demagoguery, anti-intellectualism, bombast in place of substance, and shameless pandering. For our trouble, we've been dismissed by talk radio hosts and conservative bloggers, who took an ends-justify-the-means approach to the 2010 primaries and opposition to President Obama generally.
Lo and behold, the conservative movement is now paying a price, exactly as predicted. The GOP has a weak field for 2012, and although Donald Trump isn't going to win the nomination, his early status as a front-runner is an unwelcome distraction and may end up pulling other candidates toward the sort of absurd populism that will hurt them in a general election.
Is there any possible way that primary debate moderators would be able to justify not asking the candidates whether or not they believe Obama was born in the country? And with 45 percent of the base believing the conspiracy, is there any right answer for the candidates?
How much you wanna bet Mitt Romney 5.0 comes with an automatic birther upgrade?

Ugh! What is that smell? It's like sad bile mixed with intense desperation!
Oh, Ann Coulter just released a new book…
Smash seven-time bestselling author, syndicated columnist, and conservative political commentator Ann Coulter’s forthcoming book will be titled Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America…
In Demonic, Miss Coulter portrays liberal thought in America as the result of mob behavior, including such groupthink earmarks as the creation of messiahs; a fear of scientific innovation; myth-making; a preference for images over words; and a casual embrace of contradictory ideas. Tracing the words and movements of liberal mobs, from the Ku Klux Klan and the SDS to anti-war and pro-ObamaCare fanatics today, Miss Coulter demonstrates how liberals have consistently used mob tactics to implement their idea of the "general will."
I feel bad for Ann Coulter. She used to be the go-to person for crazy over-the-top vitriol and reactionary xenophobia. But now — with the whole Tea Party having taken over the GOP and all the top-tier presidential candidates scrambling over each other to be the most hate-filled, extravagantly intolerant and joyously illogical — where is there room for poor ol' Ann Coulter?
I imagine her pacing back and forth in her garishly furnished McMansion, chain-smoking Marlboro Lights, scrawling increasingly hyperbolic books titles on a yellow legal pad and then maniacally scratching them out, scheming a way back in. Back into the national conversation. There's got to be a way. There's got to… "Wait a minute… What if I called them 'demonic'? Then someone would have to pay attention to me. They'd have to."
Congratulations, Ms. Coulter. You have received a small amount of attention.
