Nobody and I mean nobody, is as skull shatteringly brilliant at eviscerating liberals for their foibles, flaws, double standards as Ann Coulter. Just read her withering response to the latest crybaby liberal meme: that George Bush should be spending all that money on the inauguration…
“The spokesman for Clinton’s 1993 Inaugural Committee said the inaugural events would cost about $25 million – largesse exceeded only by the $50 million Ken Starr was forced to spend when “Clintonland” turned out to be populated with felons. Think of all the starving children in Angola, Somalia, Bosnia and elsewhere that $25 million could have fed! And don’t even get me started on Michael Moore’s “on location” food budget!
I wouldn’t mention it, except for the Times’ recent editorial snippily remarking that the amount of foreign aid to tsunami victims offered by the United States within the first few days of the disaster was “less than half of what Republicans plan to spend on the Bush inaugural festivities.” By that logic, why hold the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards, or spend money on restaurants and theater productions praised in the New York Times? That money could go to tsunami victims!
A letter writer to the Times redoubled the Times’ bile, claiming to be “embarrassed for our country” on account of the government’s “pathetic initial offer of aid” to the tsunami victims. Yet he was still willing to throw away 37 cents on a postage stamp to send his letter – money that could have been spent on the relief effort! (One strongly suspects the letter writer was embarrassed for his country long before the tsunami hit and will remain so long after.)
Another letter writer suggested the first lady wear a used dress to the inauguration to “honor the young people who are dying in her husband’s misbegotten war.” (To honor John Kerry’s position on Iraq, Mrs. Bush would have to order an expensive gown and then, after it was delivered, decide she didn’t want to pay for it.)
Hollywood liberals could not be reached for comment on the cost of the inauguration because they were being fitted for gowns and jewelry worth millions of dollars in anticipation of Oscar night.
Speaking of which, I just remembered: George Soros is worth $7 billion! Couldn’t he get by on, say, $1 billion and donate the rest to the tsunami victims? If gun owners have to explain why they “need” a so-called “assault rifle,” shouldn’t Soros have to explain why he “needs” $7 billion? Last year, Soros announced that the central focus of his life would be removing Bush from office. Would that Soros could refocus that energy on alleviating the suffering of tsunami victims.”
Don’t hold your breath waiting for all those stories in the New York Times complaining about how inappropriate it is for liberal Hollywood actors to be spending money on the Oscars when there’s so much suffering in the world either. They only care about that sort of thing when conservatives are involved…
