  •  Why does Coulter still irritate me so? (3+ / 0-)

    She's clearly trying to gin up controversy and I suppose be amusing.  Her tasteless comment isn't even remotely funny.  Or in the ballpark of funny.  

    Sputtering with annoyance.

      •  Yeah. They confuse it with being mean. (1+ / 0-)

        Kind of like Mr. Lequator in the Monty Python sketch.  He shouts at his wife Audrey:

        "Button your lip, you rat-bag!"

        [uproarious screeching laughter from Audrey.]

        "That was rather witty, wasn't it?"

        Rs think saying mean things equals wit.

      because I don't watch a lot of tv news/talk shows. I hear about her enough to know I would find her distasteful.

      But she was on Bill Maher the other night, which I do watch. She looked absolutely skeletal and was wearing a very low-cut, thin-strapped dress. Her voice is really annoying, but her appearance was so distracting I found it difficult to listen to her.

      Stop it. This is hard.
