Well Well Well
"As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all"
I was slandered, slimed, and smeared by the right yesterday.
Remember what happened the last time someone smeared me?
The funniest thing is that the conservative Website actually did give Rude Pundit and me credit (before basically smearing us both) but it's not even worth worrying about because it's so silly.
(Note: The other day, before editing the last couple of sentences, I alluded to two places but it looks like the other situation is getting resolved...)
Anyway, off the Coulter beat I have an article at Raw Story called Website for upcoming John Lennon documentary mocks Drudge Report, which is why I quoted the greatest Beatle up top twice from his greatest album.
Finally, here's a link to a transcript (with commentary) of Ann Coulter denying the plagiarism allegations on Fox News Channel at News Hounds.
"No serious person is taking it seriously..." said Ann Coulter.
Ha ha. Whoops, guess I proved Ann right.
"It was front page news when the charge came out," baited Neil Cavuto.
"Retractions did not make front page news," Coulter interrupted, according to News Hounds.
Really? Send me a copy of that mythical paper, Ann and Neil, why don't you, for my scrapbook.
Or better yet, point me out where on the front page of the Sunday, July 2nd New York Post Coulter's name or legs appear?
"You can't plagiarize the name 'George Bush,'" said Coulter.
Touché. Now that's actually kind of funny, though of course a complete exaggeration.
"But the syndicate of your columns did look into it exhaustively?" asked Neil Cavuto.
"The syndicate, the publisher..." replied Coulter.
Crown Publishing only examined 3 of the 11 so-far-reported examples, and most of the other ones found by The Rude Pundit and I involve at least three similiar lines from each respective source.
Coulter garbles nonsense at the end of the interview about how she's the truth-teller and that America's libel laws should be more like Britain's.
First off, this woman once said that former President Bill Clinton was a "very good rapist." I believe Ann Coulter would be locked up in the Tower of London for years upon years if America took that undemocratic route.
If Coulter is so sure of herself then why doesn't she go on a less friendly forum and answer real questions about the allegations?
Forums that don't have hosts that lie about a newspaper owned by the same company he works for so that you can "clear the record."
