I got my money's worth out of my basic cable tonight, watching Ann Coulter defend Arnold Schwarzenegger. The best part is she didn't really defend him. She just rolled her eyes and said that the L A Times was a tool of the Democratic Party. By the way, if you have a strong stomach you can read her columns on line. Her writing is so awful that I can't imagine anyone claiming her as a paradigm of their political philosophy, even if she is a skinny, horsey-looking blonde. She seems to think, among other things, that she scores big when she accuses John Kerry of looking French.
What really, truly mystifies me about all the Groper-gate stuff is that I read about it in Salon.com months ago. Even the 'admiring Hitler' comments. And the guys on CNN are shocked that this is 'coming out' right before the election. Virtually everything that's blowing up now about him was apparently well known before he even announced he was going to run.
I just need to not watch the news, and watch old movies instead. I've got a 30 year record of bitching about conditions in the world and not doing anything about it; to follow it as closely as I do just makes me feel even more powerless and ineffectual.
