Rhetorical Question of the Day

Can someone please explain to me what it was that gave Ann Coulter the impression that anyone cares what she thinks or says?

She’s not terribly original, she rarely says anything constructive, and, to quote Jerry Lawrence and Bob Lee in Inherit the Wind, she’s never pushed noun against a verb except to blow something up. She’s basically the Paris Hilton of punditry; famous for being famous.

PS: Why am I giving her any attention? Because it’s a rhetorical question.

HT to Spudsy.

4 barks and woofs on “Rhetorical Question of the Day

  1. Now DRUDGE is reporting and the freepers are screaming that Coulter has been banned for life from NBC (as if!) because she got bumped from a too-packed program schedule for Jan 6 but Perez Hilton didn’t.

    Yeah, I know, tough choice.

    I don’t know why producers book people like Coulter. I don’t know why 95% of the people who appear on news shows and pundit shows are asked to appear in the first place. And don’t even get me started about the hosts!

    I’ve given up on that type of programming. I noodle around the iTunes lists of podcast interviews and occasionally come up with some gems. That keeps me happy.
