Coulter nails it


Ann Coulter's columns are famous for being caustic and bitingly sarcastic. Her over—the—top style often overwhelms the legitimacy of her writing, and therefore many people just tune her out.

But every once in a while she just gets it so right, so correct, that it has to be shared. This is one of those times. Here's an excerpt from her latest column

"...We're sorry about Ms. Sheehan's son, but the entire nation was attacked on 9/11. This isn't about her personal loss. America has been under relentless attack from Islamic terrorists for 20 years, culminating in a devastating attack on U.S. soil on 9/11. It's not going to stop unless we fight back, annihilate Muslim fanatics, destroy their bases, eliminate their sponsors and end all their hope. A lot more mothers will be grieving if our military policy is: No one gets hurt!..."

It's very significant to note that exactly NONE of the 2008 Democratic
front—runners (Clinton, Biden, Bayh, Kerry, et. al.) has taken a public
stance supporting Ms. Sheehan and her position. On the contrary, the leading Dems have run for cover the other way so fast all you see is their dust. The MSM has it wrong——again. The Sheehan situation is not a Bush/Republican problem regardless of how desperately the MSM is trying to fabricate this into an embarrassment for President Bush. To the extent that any normal person is even paying attention to this, it's clearly a longer—term Democratic problem, because Sheehan's antics——propped up by the Michael Moore/ connection—— are only serving to reinforce the widely—held view that Dems are soft on terror, clueless on national security, and they will cut and run at the first opportunity.

That is not the position that will appeal to mid—American swing voters and win back the White House for the Dems in 2008, and that's why Senators Clinton, Biden, etc. are AWOL on the Sheehan issue.
