Some of you may have seen this already since it hit the web yesterday, but if you've missed it you really need to go watch it.

Apparently the BBC was not amused:

YouTube website writes:

Anyone save a copy?

Re: Hilarious screw-up @ the BBC
Ohmigod! The expression on his face just as the first question is being asked is priceless!!!

His answer to the first question is, "I'm very surprised to see this verdict to come on me because I was not expecting that, when I came they told me something else, and I'm <unintelligible> so a big surprise anyway."

Re: Anti-Coulterisms
DISCLAIMER: I don't really believe any of this. I'm just so sick of seeing that anorexic bitch on TV and I thought this might be a fun way of dealing with it.

Hmmm. I don't know what Coulter said, maybe I should read back in this thread. I checked her book out of the library a while back, but it was just a screed and I gave it up after a chapter or two - blatant bias is boring whether you agree with it or not.

I have an eclectic set of political views that defy classification, but it doesn't seem like it would be much effort to be equally biased and unfunny about liberals, so I'll give it a try. I wonder how close these are to Coulterisms:

Liberals love everyone, including women and children, old people and young people, black people and white people, peaceniks and terrorists, pacifists and rapists, Nobel prize winners and especially murderers on death row.

Liberals hate all war, especially if it's to prevent genocide in remote regions at the hands of ruthless dictators.

The only civil rights liberals care about are the ones about collecting public money for not working.

Liberals believe that if money is being made, something illegal must be going on.

Liberals want you to ignore your religion but to live by the golden rule anyway.

Liberals criticize Israel because they can't remember Santa Anna or even World War II.

The only children of privilege liberals care about are those who have committed sex crimes.

--Percy


Disclaimer: I don't believe any of this, either, just striving for balance.

Re: Anti-Coulterisms
Wow! Those quotes go beyond unfunny all the way to scary! Or they would if they weren't so self-evidently outlandish, though I suppose such statements always find believers somewhere.

Have conservatives explored the possibility that Coulter is actually a liberal mole whose mission is to make conservatives look biased and ridiculous? Or that she's really Rush Limbaugh in disguise?

In case someone might misunderstand, just let me say that I'm neither liberal nor conservative (neither would have me, anyway), it's just that I'm not a supporter of buffoonery or absurd overstatement, no matter how beautiful the proponent or how much I might otherwise agree with the sentiments expressed. It frequently isn't the view itself that's a turnoff, but the way someone is expressing it, so naturally I don't pay much attention to people like Coulter and Limbaugh on the one hand, or Al Franken and Al Sharpton on the other.

Must be over twenty years since I thought Doonesbury had anything funny or true to say.

You mean not only is it not true, it's not even funny? Darn! :D

Faith, I don't know what set Dr. A. off, pay him no mind, he's acting loony, ignore him. Your poem based on his was great, I admire and enjoy both your talents and hope you both give us more examples.
