Losing Our Rights
by

My pal David J over at the eclectic, always entertaining Resurrection Song offers his take on the Ann Coulter mess:

…if [Coulter’s] point is that we’re losing the right to be a–holes, as Jay Tea asserts, then she’s wrong. I’m surrounded by a–holes every day. I see them on the roads, I manage to control myself in their presence in the Costcos and Wal Marts of the nation, and I hear their Oscar acceptance speeches on the late night news. People have all the right in the world to be a–holes, but no one has the obligation to provide them with a microphone to broadcast their views.

What Coulter said was stupid, mean, and not funny–and the people who insist that she didn’t actually say anything are just playing an immature grade-school game that ignores the very obvious intent of her words. No, she didn’t say “John Edwards is a faggot”, but the intent was clear enough to anyone who isn’t bent on making excuses for her.

Nevertheless, John Tabin still has, by my lights, the best line on the whole controversy in his Brainwash column:

In short, the moral case against Coulter the attention-whore is infinitely stronger than the case against an actual whore.
