Okay, Ann, you get points on this one...

...maybe we'll get something good from Molly in the next round.

From Ann Coulter's most recent column:

I repeat: Bolton has been nominated to be ambassador to the United Nations. It's not like it's an important job. Get a grip, people! He's not replacing Paula Abdul on "American Idol."

The U.N. is an organization with thousands of people from all over the world with one thing in common: They badly need to be yelled at, preferably by a guy who looks like Wilford Brimley.


Now, maybe I just think this is funny because I am a lone American Idol holdout in a family with seven other people who love the show, but it got a chuckle out of me, at least. I might add that Dessie tells me our two young daughters-in-waiting over in Karaganda are both devoted fans of "Superstar Kazakhstan" or whatever the name is of the Kazakhstani knock-off of American Idol; so my isolation will only grow more pronounced when Anna and Kristina get home. I may have to suck it up and start watching the show. And, as an aside, about that guy who claims to have slept with Ms. Abdul -- is there a more pitiful excuse for a man on the planet? I think it is safe to say that he has never heard the word cad, and also that he, most mistakenly, thinks he knows what the word manhood means. Wow, what a loser. If it turns out to be true -- and if, which is highly doubtful, we care about the issue enough to notice whether it turns out to be true or not -- then we will know two things about Ms. Abdul: (a) she is ethically challenged, and (b) she has execrably bad taste in men.

Ms. Coulter's little riff there is probably not quite so funny to people who actually take the United Nations seriously as a force for good in the world, but then I'm not one of those people.

UPDATE: Hard on her own heels, Ann scores more points here.

What we've learned from [comparing what Ann claims various people said would happen in Iraq to what actually did happen] is: Talking to liberals is much more fun now that we have Lexis-Nexis.

In a Nov. 9, 2003, news article, The New York Times raised the prospect that "democracy in the Middle East might empower the very forces that the United States opposes, like Islamic fundamentalists in Saudi Arabia and Egypt."

Democracy in the U.S. might have put John Kerry in the White House, too, but you'll notice we didn't abandon the idea.

One difference is that the Islamic fundamentalists in Saudi Arabia and Egypt were not democratically elected. Still, the Times said that "something similar" happened in Iran when "domestic pressures" installed the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. By "domestic pressures" in Iran, I gather the Times meant "the Carter presidency."
