  •  But how is (4.00)
    front-paging it on Kos "holding their feet to the fire"?  I'm not being snotty, Armando, I'm genuinely asking how you think this will impact the problem of our corporate conservative media.

    I think it achieves two things, neither of which help us:

    1.  Another front page for Coulter; ah my head will explode from irony

    2.  Glee and triumph on the part of any right-wingers who read here, seeing this "icon" of theirs being treated as an icon by the Left as well

    In what way do you propose Time Magazine and the rest of the SCLM is in any way admonished by our falling over ourselves to be just like them?
    •  I agree. My head is exploding too. (none)
      She gets hired to aggravate the left.  Stop talking about her and she loses her appeal.
      •  Just like... (none)
        The way Kerry shut up about the Swift Boat Veterans.  That worked out well.

        I don't mean to be too mean, but this attitude of right-wing demogogues as "not worth discussing" is shortsighted and wrong.  We as a party have stood on the sidelines for decades while the right-wing built a vast media machine, from Limbaugh to Savage to Horowitz to Coulter.  Yes, we feel good by stating that "we're above that kind of discourse", and those good feelings may keep some of us happier at night while we continue to lose election after election.  

        It's time we challenge these bastards at every level, at every outrageous statement, all the time--if Ms. Coulter wants to be the face of the Party, let's give her all the attention she wants.  I can't imagine anything more disgusting to the American voter.

        •  She is not a politician, (4.00)
          she does not have her own show, she is a celebrity guest.  Her celebrity credentials are based on saying outrageous things in sound bytes to aggravate the left.  

          She doesn't fire up the right. We are her audience, feeding that celebrity calling her a she/man, talking about her drug use, her looks, her latest racist remark, etc.  My somewhat moderate Repugnant relatives know she is full of shit but just love to watch the reactions of the left's response to her outlandish comments.  They can't wait to tell me what she said today.

          Want to see her head explode? Stop talking about her, posting her photos, and watching her. She will raise the level of her outrageous comments for attention and get fired from even more jobs.

          I would agree with you on Kerry with the Swift boats, Savage, Limbaugh, and Horowitz though.  

    •  Because my friend (none)
      It is an outrage that Ann Coulter is on the cover of Time magazine.

      It is important that we point out how outrageous it is.

      The best way to do it is to express our outrage.

      Frankly, I simply do not follow your logic. How do yuo propose holding their fet to the fire? Ignoring it?
