Not Such a Cunning Stunt...

[Updated, sorta - Skippy had a much better picture, so I stole it promptly and swapped 'em out.]

Ann Coulter: CLASSLESS


First advertisers disappeared from her website. Then newspapers, to their credit, started dropping her column. The latest is the Shreveport Times. In dropping the poisonous harpie of the rabid right, the Times joins papers in Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Michigan. Media Matters has a list of all the papers which currently carry her column, and the contact information for the opinion page editors who decide what runs.

If you contact the press, follow the same rules for contacting your elected officials. Hold the snark and hostility. Be respectful and concise, and clearly and firmly, using positive assertive language, state your case in 100 words or less. Rant in my comments section if you want to rant. Don't rant to a congressional staffer or an opinion editor.

My local paper, to the credit of the editorial board, dropped her like a prom dress when she made the "invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity" remark.

She has every right to be a stunning cu craven, malignant, soulless harridan.

I just don't think that a social cancer like Ann Coulter should be rewarded for being one of the top-ten worst Americans of all time, Tim McVeigh included so black is her soul.

Is Malkin next ? ( Is it dyslexic when I get my murds wixed because of my peach inspediment ? )

I've given Malkin an acid-bath or two in the past, at the old place, if you recall.

Actually the name for that linguistic trick is called a spoonerism. I really like that name too.

Skippy - I went to your place looking for that post and got a 404 from the search bar. You got there first Pardner, so put that link up over here. I'm a scientist - we always include our colleagues who arrive around the same time when we publish our papers and jury one anothers work.

Hat tip to the Divine MsN for pointing out a typo - if you didn't catch it, I'm not coppin' to it.
