Coulter’s disease

Courtesy of Panda’s Thumb, a link to this wonderful short OpEd: The York Daily Record – Coulter mangles Dover case, by Mike Argento. It includes many beautiful zingers about the mad blonde, but the best is this:

… that brings us to the big irony of Coulter’s work.

Her vitriol and ignorance shows contempt for science and for the scientists working to cure diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and whatever it is that is afflicting Ann Coulter.

I wish I had said that…

    Reading some of the fallacies in Godless is like looking into the sun: You don’t want to do it too long, you just want to get a feeling of it and stop. I flipped open to some random page in a B.Dalton’s bookstore, and one of Coulter’s arguments went something like ‘Liberals say you can believe in evolution and God, but I say you can believe in God and Spiderman, and that doesn’t make Spiderman true.’

    I read it, read it twice to make sure I didn’t misread it, and just said ‘what’ aloud right in the store.

    I think she’s going for the Ronald Reagan Memorial Non Sequitur Award.

    You miss the point of Ms. Coulter’s writings: they are satires of the Creationist beliefs similar to Swift’s writings on Christianity & his solutions for the problems of poverty & famine in Ireland. Lighten up people & have the good, long laugh at Ms. Coulter’s works which they so richly deserve.
