No matter how fat you think you are, there's always someone fatter. Unless, of course, you're the fattest person in the world.

Margaret Cho [Dec. 5th, 2003|11:16 am]
Okrzyki, przyjaciel!

I hadn't read any of Margaret Cho's blog before, and reading large chunks of it points out her shortcomings:

1. I don't get her use of Ebonics. I like the language of black folks -- it's expressive, flexible and poetic. But let's leave it to black folks to speak it mmKay? I'm as guilty as the next wanna-be-clued-up-whitey of dropping the occasional hip-hop-ism into casual convo, but when Cho does it, she keeps doing it until it makes me uncomfortable.

2. When she writes, she writes A LOT. She must be a fast typist. For a comedian she sure doesn't seem to know that brevity is the soul of wit.

3. She's occasionally really wickedly funny, like her Ann Coulter piece, in which she makes up a hyphenated word that takes up a whole line by itself 'never-had-any-shit-come-down-on-them-like-a-hard-rain-so-why-should-they-care-about-anyone-but-themselves'

So if you haven't, check her out, but be warned that she's best in small doses.

Amazing Ann Coulter [Dec. 5th, 2003|03:52 pm]

If Ann Coulter didn't exist, liberals would have to invent her. In Her most recent column (December 3, 2003)* She compares abortion to the Holocaust, the Supreme Court to Nambla, and calls Sandra Day O'Connor "Ronald Reagan's Biggest Mistake." Every one of her columns has 2 or 3 completely indefensible howlers like that. She lives in Bizarro World.

*her website doesn't give you a way to link to her current column, so if you don't click through to a column titled " Supreme Court Opinions Not Private Enough", go looking for it in her archive.
