A running rant about bad television, crappy products, horrible service, mindless politics, corporate and government ineptitude, moronic media, marketing overload, public idiocy, stupid entertainment, etc. Here's what's annoying me today:

Worst Person in the World

I hesitate to even mention Ann Coulter, because she is the perfect example of someone who is only a public irritant because she is constantly given a forum by the media. So even the mere mention on my stupid blog is adding to the problem.

Only solution to Ann Coulter and her ilk would be to ignore her and hope she goes away. Unfortunately the media can't ignore anyone, however horrifying. So she comes out with some outrageous, moronic comment, is instantly given a forum by the likes of Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, which leads to her appearance on the Today show and Larry King, which leads to more sales of her books, which in turn leads to more media appearances, the cover of Time, and a place as a spokesperson for the conservative cause.

That's all it takes: You need no credentials, no IQ, no intelligence: Just toss out a few well times barbs, and the media machine does the rest.

Don't forget the Howie Carr show, that doofus Michael Graham, Jay Severin. A couple days ago, I honestly couldn't get away from Ann Coulter when I turned on the radio. I don't know why she sells books, every time I see her on a TV show, she comes across as some blond bitch with no sense of humor. Yet, they say her book is loaded with humor. I guess the true test would be to read one of her books but I would hate to pay for it! In contrast, other than Jon Stewart, is there any liberal commentary worth listening to?

Yeah, but Howie Carr & Graham are just local annoyances. Kieth Olbermann is the best liberal infotainment I know of, but he's getting a little too hung up on Bill O'Reilly, and a little full of himself.

C'mon, 'sick of extremes'? John/Cranky? Just a word from either of you and I'll lambast your derision of Ms. Coulter with the emphasis it deserves. My God, quit your !@&#@$! whining and recover your party from the depths of depravity! I 'spect I'll be banned for noting this, but I'll say it anyway. In caps. GROW A FREAKING SPINE regressives.

I'm serious. If you really don't understand Ann's point, then I can 'splain it to you. I'm here for you man.

On a lighter note, I shall miss you both. You see, I'm dying of a rare toenail fungal infection. It would be wrong of you to say anything bad about me, because I have this infection, and am dying. Also, taxes should be lowered even more, kids should be cooked in the oven at 350 degrees, we should invade Canada, and take over Israel.

Don't disagree with me though, I'm dying of toenail fungus! It would be plain insensitive to disagree with me. Have you no heart?

(If you sift through the malarky, THAT is Ann's point, in a nutshell.)

I won't disgrace your site with a comment again. Please accept my apologies for being so rude, it is uncharacteristic of me.

How could you ignore her? My God man, she's as hot as a pistol. Just imagine her in pigtails and a school girl tartan skirt. Yikes a sort of bad girl Britney Spears dominatrix kind of thing. (Spank) Thank you ma’am, may I have another (Spank) Thank you ma’am, may I have another!

And Blogagog, what the #*@& are you smoking?

I hesitate to call myself liberal, not just because it's a rightwing swear word but because I agree with a lot of the conservatives. I just don't see anything new or brilliant coming out of Ann Coulter's snide style. Trustee is probably closest to understanding why she is getting all the air time. She goes on all the TV shows looking damn good and people remember her. I just don't think she adds anything to the political landscape in any useful form. Less talk, more swimsuit pictures!

Hey! I haven't seen a story concerning Coulter for a couple weeks now! Is that the light at the end of the tunnel?!

I only want to hear her when she's biting the pillow!

Blogagog has it all wrong anyways. The liberals have plenty of spine. They just don't have any unified direction. All the Neocons have to do is watch Libs beat themselves up while they silently take over radio and politics. Ann Coulter is just surfing the neocon wave and when that oil soiled crest hits the beach, she and other loudmouth reactionaries will be forgotten.
