Ann Coulter's problem...

As I see it, the real problem with Ann Coulter is that by using the tone she does, she alienates many who actually hold the same opinions on things as she does - and that is a loss for our side.

It is a loss because Ann Coulter is one of the most incisive and analytically brilliant commentators around today. Unfortunately many people, myself included, often are laughing too hard (or fuming too hotly) to clearly see the points she's making.

Regardless of her tone, however, she deserves a place among the pantheon of heroes for asking the following question the other day:

"When is the New York Times going to uncover a secret Al Qaeda program?"

In that one sentence she exposed the overweaning pride and feckless nature of those who consider themselves smarter than everyone else.

While I can only take her in small doses, I do love her.
