Like the News, but better.

So, I’m pretty out of it when it comes to politics.  Sure, I’m part of the BYU Republicans, but so is 98% of the school so it doesn’t really mean much.  But I came across this article and thought it was worth publicizing for the rest of you:

The link may have changed by the time you read it but it currently is an article entitled Calvin and Hobbes and Muhammad.  I found the article highly entertaining, and I agree with much of what she says.  Not everything, but most of it.

I love these pundits.  The only news show I watch (excepting the Daily Show, which is fantastic but I don’t really qualify it as news) is the occasional few minutes of Bill O’Reilly.  I think it’s hilarious.  But whereas I don’t think he’s trying to be funny, at least Ann is.  Bill is just so extreme that I can’t take him seriously.  I can’t rally imagine quoting anything he says, other than to point out how extreme he is.  This may be maddening to some liberals, but I think I would be equally entertained by watching their extremists.  I’ve seen a couple of Michael Moore’s films and was pretty amused by his slanted view.  The fact that I usually disagree with him doesn’t matter in its entertainment value.

So Ann Coulter is now on my watch list.  She’s not PC and not as right as she thinks she is, but she’ll keep my attention better than the Associated Press.

You're a Republican?

How white male mormon of you.

Though neither white (I'm tanned), male or mormon, I have always enjoyed Ann Coulter too. This was a fun piece.
