Ann Coulter

Let's be honest: the woman is pretty darn funny.

B. Hussein Obama said he was for slavery reparations in many forms, but the only one that got applause was for more "investment" in schools. In Obama's defense, the precise question was: "But is African-Americans ever going to get reparations for slavery?" So a switch to the subject of education was only natural.

Moreover, a question on reparations has got to be confusing when you're half-white and half-black. What do you do? Demand an apology for slavery and money from yourself? I guess biracial reparations would involve sending yourself money, then sending back a portion of that money to yourself, minus 50 percent in processing fees — which is the same way federal aid works.

I went to her speech at my school, and honestly, I thought I was sitting and watching a female version of Stephen Colbert...

She is very witty. She cracks me up.

She cracked me up too.

Though not as much as Stephen does, sorry to say.

I just thought it was funny how outraged people were at the speech and then went home and watched Stephen Colbert without a care.

I like comparing the two if you haven't noticed...

You should definitely read a book or two of hers. I have never laughed reading non-fiction the way I do when I read Ann.

Godless was great. (Just came out in paperback, btw.)

And I'm almost done with Slander.

Both get 5 stars from me.
