140 characters: Just the right amount to consume the news, way too many for your performers to effectively portray in a two-man avant-garde staged version of the Libyan uprisings.
Speaking of complicated yet mildly funny Libya-related activities…

* Minnesota GOP to make money illegal for poor people. Isn't this kind of what the Republicans have been working toward for years? This one seems a little artlessly overt.
* Helen Thomas finally makes it into Playboy. Though, somebody maybe should have airbrushed her mouth shut.
* Like NASCAR, marriage equality now tolerated by a slim majority of Americans.
* Ann Coulter is right! A little radiation never hurt anyone. With the small exception of a lot of people.

Poor Ann Coulter. She doesn't get the attention she used to back when she was the craziest thing going in conservative circles. But now, her brand of crazy would most likely get her laughed out of any average tea party meeting. "What? You think liberals are traitors to the nation? So, I'm assuming that you're acknowledge that they're citizens, and therefore humans. I see…" Must be frustrating.
Like, take her new column for Townhall (which, apparently still exists), in which she argues against young adults being allowed to keep the right to vote. It's kind of hard to read, because the flop sweat of Please Be Offended by Me! keeps getting splattered into your eye…
We must repeal the 26th Amendment… Adopted in 1971 at the tail end of the Worst Generation's anti-war protests, the argument for allowing children to vote was that 18-year-olds could drink and be conscripted into the military, so they ought to be allowed to vote. But 18-year-olds aren't allowed to drink anymore. We no longer have a draft…
Eighteen- to 26-year-olds don't have property, spouses, children or massive tax bills. Most of them don't even have jobs because the president they felt so good about themselves for supporting wrecked the economy.
First of all, hahahahahahahahahaha! Second of all, sad face.
Look, I tried. I tried to be offended by this. Because we have history, Ann and I. Getting angry at the ridiculous things that Ann Coulter said used to be a favorite pastime of mine. I used to spend a good 45 minutes just sitting and stewing in a joyous rage at whatever the fuck thing she wrote in her column that week.
But now it's, like, really? This is all you've got? Repeal the 26th Amendment? Because young voters tend to be liberals, and liberals tend to vote for presidents like Barack Obama? Huh? Did a 14-year-old take a break from writing melancholy poetry about how shadows are likes soul to ghostwrite this argument for her? I mean, even Townhall readers — and this, I understand, is saying a lot — have got to read this and be like, "Um, I find this to be an unreasonable thing to get myself worked up over."

Ann Coulter, explaining to the homosexual conservative crowd at this past weekend's Homocon why they should abandon the marriage equality cause, and join forces with the anti-abortionists…
"As soon as they find the gay gene, you know who's getting aborted."
70 percent of the Republican base?

Good one, Ann Coulter?
"The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist."
