Quote of the Day

"The nonsense about President Obama being a Muslim has got to stop. I rise to defend him from this absurd accusation by pointing out that he is obviously an atheist. ... The only evidence for Obama's Christianity is that he faithfully attended the Rev. Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ for 20 years."Ann Coulter.

Ann, sweetie, you've got to dial back the hyperbole. I know your readership will always treat as earnest anything you write, no matter how absurd, but the rest of us are starting to cotton on that this is just sustained performance art, designed to expose the profundity of ignorance among the American Rightwing.
