When Ann Coulter is on, there is no one on the planet, left or right, who can touch her for scathing wit and stiletto-deadly prose. Witness these four paragraphs on Democratic Senator Patty Murray:
With amazing understatement, one of Murray’s Democratic colleagues in the state senate told The Seattle Times in 1992: “She just doesn’t strike you as somebody who’s been reading The New York Times every day for the past five years.” I wonder when Katie Couric is going to ask Murray what newspapers she reads.
After Murray was elected to the U.S. Senate, the Democrats tried to keep her locked in her office to prevent her from saying anything that might end up in a newspaper. But in the confusion after the 9/11 attack, the leadership must have lost the keys and Murray escaped to say this about Osama bin Laden:
“He’s been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. He’s made their lives better.”
Yes, Osama was out building “day-care facilities” — and probably sponsoring “Bring Your Daughter to Work” days! I defy anyone to produce something stupider ever uttered by a homo sapiens. Not Barbara Boxer, Joe Biden or even John Edwards can hold their dimly lit candles to her.
As it happens, not only does Murray make a pet rock look like Stephen Hawking, she’s also not entirely acquainted with the truth. Read all of Coulter’s column to get chapter and verse on Murray’s Reeboks to Riches story.
Murray is running for re-election in Washington right now. Let’s hope that the voters there decide they’ve had enough with the empty pair of track shoes they have in the Senate and put someone in there who’ll do something more useful than teach our kids to cower in fear.
