Ann Coulter: In a choice between Republicans' "Stay until we win" Iraq policy or the Democrats' "Stay, leave ... stay for a while then leave ... redeploy and then come back ... leave and stay ... cut and run ... win, lose or draw policy," I guess Americans prefer the Republican policy.
Rush: "It won't be long before you're going to start seeing glowing stories on the economy, and it's just going to happen to coincide with Democrats being in power, and you're going to get livid and wonder why the American people don't see through this -- and I'll be with you. Ha, ha, ha!"
Now, these are post-election comments from the two of them. And obviously, they've moved to opposite-land where everything is backwards.
This one time though, I thought it would be fun to write good ol' Ann and let her in on the joke (that she is). So here's what I wrote her:
Ann, I'm really sorry to have to break the news, but people voted against Republicans, well, because they're sick of the damned Republicans. I know you don't read much news because the truth gets in the way of your harping, but Tom DeLay is claiming that the Dems didn't win the election so much as the Repubs lost it. So it's kind of strange when you say things like:
In a choice between Republicans' "Stay until we win" Iraq policy or the Democrats' "Stay, leave ... stay for a while then leave ... redeploy and then come back ... leave and stay ... cut and run ... win, lose or draw policy," I guess Americans prefer the Republican policy.
I mean...are you saying that it's not your ideas the majority of Americans don't like, it's just you? I know that the latter is hard to believe for you, given your popularity with transvestites (although that may be because the costume is so easy for a man), but there just aren't enough transvestites to swing an election. We are admonished to "hate the sin, not the sinner", which, metaphorically, means rejecting bad candidates, not the Republican party. The problem might be that with a party full of criminals like Bob Ney, Duke Cunningham, Tom DeLay, and Mark Foley this idea becomes rather meaningless.
No, I'm sorry, Ann, the public has spoken, and trimuphantly, just like our heroes at the end of the movie (A Knight's Tale) they have said, "You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting."
For a good laugh, also check out Henry Rollins' letter to Ann.
