Oh Ann ... .

I see Annie's underpants
there's a soiled spot!

I love Ann Coulter because she's been a pit bull in a ring of go along-get along, weak spined, Republican leaning media pussies.   True, more and more I've found myself occupying polar opposite positions on strategy, but that's okay. With the exception of Obama's COLB (where she presented none), Ann bolsters her positions with sound and reasoned argument.   But, I am more than a bit surprised by tactics  used in  her attack on Newt this week.  I'm disappointed, actually.

(During the House ethics investigation of Gingrich, he produced notes in which he reminds himself to "allow expression of warm/smiling/softer side.")

After Gingrich had been speaker for a brief two years, the Republican House voted 395-28 to reprimand him and fine him $300,000 for ethics violations.

(Sen. Bob Dole loaned Gingrich the money in what was called the first instance of an airbag being saved by a person.)

That ethics committee ruling was another case of Republicans, led by Rep. Jennifer Dunn (R WA). bowing to media pressure, and finding Newt guilty of a trumped up Democrat charge involving taxes and his television history course.  He was later found innocent of the charges by the IRS, a fact that to this day has gone unreported by the airwaves media.

To put a finer point on the era's :Ethics Committee conduct, Dick Gerhardt was simultaneously being investigated for what amounted to real estate fraud and tax evasion.  He was cited for lying to the committee three times, but let of f with a slap on the wrist.  Ann Coulter is aware of these facts, but chose to take the low road. It wasn't necessary, as her other insights attest (IMO).  I too would rather have Romney or whats-his-name over Newt, but criminal behavior is not one of Newt's weaknesses.

Mod Cloth for the Ladies ...

Heads-up PSA


Living as I do amongst a covey (murder?  pack?)  of hip, fashionable wimmin, I learn stuff through osmosis.  Like MOD CLOTH being the trendiest, best valued (half the price of Anthropologie)  ladies clothier on the web.  Working off the buzz created by Mad Men, they specialize in the 50's 60's look.  So men, for maybe the first time in your (our) lives, here's an opportunity to get your lady something that doesn't run on electricity.  I'm pretty sure you will be amply rewarded.  Ahem. (Shhhhh)

You're welcome. Er—   Hey,  how about dem Bears!

Adolf Hitler and Mickey Mouse signatures will be counted in the effort to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, so long as they are properly dated and bear a Wisconsin address.
