There is a lot of “holier than Thou” talk from the left right now and it really bugs me. Even one of the commenters in the “Ditch Coulter” post was spouting crap like that. Like I wrote in that original post comments like Coulter’s are not exclusive to the conservatives…liberals have way more than their fair share of hateful comments, MUCH MUCH worse than what Coulter said. The difference between liberals and conservatives is the conservatives have overwhelmingly denounced Coulter’s remarks…there has been silence from the left when their own people have made worse comments. Here is a great post from Patterico that details several examples of the hate speech the left is ever so good at.

I think Ann Coulter has finally done it. She has pushed the envelope to a point where conservatives NEED to ditch her. Conservatives have been given the rap of being racist, biggoted, homophobes, which is so unfair. I bet admitted homophobe Tim Hardaway didn’t vote for a conservative…just a guess.
Racism, and homophobia knows no political party…it is on both sides of the aisle <cough> Sen. Sheets Byrd <cough>, but since liberals and their cohorts in the media have been successful in changing the conventional wisdom regarding conservatives it is our job to change it back. Ann Coulter has become a liability to the conservatives.
I used to like Coulter. I have one of her books. She would say things that no one else would dare say, she stood up to her critics, and she destroyed them. Is that what we want from a politician…no, but she is the one that does the dirty work the politicians can’t or won’t do. She has went over the line and the Right can’t legitimicize her any longer. It is guilt by association. I heard Hannity say in his interview with Michelle Malkin, that he hasn’t heard the comments and can only say that each person needs to be responsible for what they say, not what someone else says. That is true, but if you sit back and do nothing to correct or condemn the action it indicates you support the comments, or you are just too much of a wuss to take a stand. Either way it isn’t an appealing characteristic.
Ann Coulter is going the way of Pat Buchannan, and she should be shunned like he was too.
Here is a short post from Lost Remote about the new Fox News sketch comedy, The 1/2 Hour News Show, and a new show called It’s Out There.
For many of us it isn’t earth shattering news that the internet and blogging are in the process of changing the political landscape in this country, but I would guess MOST people are in the dark on this topic. It’s Out There is an example of how blogging is changing politics and the news media in general, because it is essentiall a half-hour show discussing stories found on blogs. For me, the best part about the show is that it will be cohosted by one of my favorite Fox News contributors…Michelle Malkin!
This Variety link mentions just a bit more about the show and its first episode.
