Ms. Coulter, Please Report To The Re-Education Camp

I have no doubt that Ann Coulter could complete the above picture. After all, the message is right up her alley. But, that's about as far as I would go in giving her any credit for being on the ball. This rabid dog of a right-wing commentator seems to have been raised on a steady diet of Rush Limbaugh, roller derby girls, and raw meat, and I would not recommend putting your hand anywhere near her mouth.

In her latest screed, she joins in the conservative chorus now blaming enviromentalists and democrats for the current gas prices. Apparently, the oil companies' latest price-gouging is due to us having protected the Alaskan wilderness from oil-drilling. I'm having a hard time drawing the same conclusion, what with oil companies recording murderously obscene profits, and oil execs getting four hundred million-dollar retirement bonuses. The American auto industry's successful ploy of convincing us that we have to drive around in Sherman Tank-sized SUVs that get 17 MPG doesn't quite jibe with what she's saying, either, but, I guess she didn't think about all of that. Thinking isn't what she gets paid to do, anyway, but, at some point, reality has to slap up against that horse face and register. Perhaps when a significant portion of our coastal areas are inundated, and gas is at $6.49 a gallon, Ms. Coulter will come around. But, I'm not betting on it. Most likely, she'll proudly and defiantly go down with the ship, much like that capricious captain in Melville's epic tome. Wouldn't that be just like her.
