The Michael Moore of the right.

I am mystified as to why the National Post continues to publish columns by Ann Coulter. Like Michael Moore -- whose simplistic message that Republicans are dumb, evil, greedy, and are behind everything that is bad in the world has won him such a following -- she takes the line that Democrats are dumb, treasonous, deceitful, and would destroy everything that is good in the world. Here's a snip from her latest column, titled, "All Democrats are the same":

There isn't a hair's difference between any of the Democrats on any substantive issues. All the Democrats are for higher taxes. All of them favour Hillary's socialist health care plan. All of them are for higher pay for teachers and nurses -- and no pay at all for anyone in the pharmaceutical or oil industries, especially Halliburton executives who should be sent to Guantanamo. All the Democrats believe the way to strike fear in the hearts of the terrorists is for the U.S. federal government to invest heavily in windmills.

All the Democrats oppose the war. And all the Democrats who took a position on the war before it began were for it, but now believe that everything Bush did from that moment forward has been bad! bad! bad! This is with the exception of Joe Lieberman who, as an observant Jew, is forbidden to backpedal after sundown on Fridays.

Finally, all the candidates are willing to sell out any of these other issues in service of the secret burning desire of all Democrats: abortion on demand. If they could just figure out a way to abort babies using solar power, that's all we'd ever hear about.

Ugh. You can always spot poor opinion pieces by the need to resort to the all those people argument -- especially when little evidence is made to back it up. Ann (and Mike) have made quite the careers out of this nonsense, which is sad when you consider that you could almost pick a blog at random -- from the right or the left -- and get better commentary than from these two.

Anne is, possibly, the dumbest psuedo con writing. The good news is that now that the Post and a lot of the other Southam papers have gone subscription, those of use who get our news from the net don't actually have to go there anymore.

But I'll miss Liz Nickson.
