Well done, media girl. Althou

Well done, media girl. Although I think there may be disagreement among liberals on #15, depending on the circumstances. But, don't let my criticism take away from the greatness of this list. And, it is great.

I agree

...there are some cultures that do seem to need some correction, especially when it comes to women's rights. But that likely is not exactly what "saved" would mean for a conservative, to whom this list is addressed.

Coming soon is How to spot a conservative, but perhaps I will produce a companion glossary to clarify and delineate the divergence in definitions of such words as "saved." 8)

Thanks for the nice words!

Shock jock - right wing style

http://www.talkingpresidents.com/products-af-coulter.shtml

I had not heard of this woman before and now there's a doll that gives me an idea of the reason she's popular. She's a sort of right wing political version of Howard Stern who gets attention by saying things calculated to shock and outrage. The more out there, the better.

For example "why not go to war just for oil?" She asks. "We need oil. What do Hollywood celebrities imagine fuels their private jets? How do they think their cocaine is delivered to them?"

This is masterful. She is funny and nasty all in the same breath. She makes it sound like Hollywood celebrities are on cocaine - never mind George Bush's record - and asks these drugged out millionaires what fuels they imagines fuels jets? Drugged out millionaires sure are stupid, Ann -- yuk-yuk. The jet fuel burned by the planes bombing Iraq could keep Lear jets flying in perpetuity.

Her philosophy on going to war for oil is over the top - true shock joke style - a step away from John Dillinger who robbed banks because that's where the money is. A sort of gangster foreign policy.

Liberals "can't come out and say they want to take our money, kill babies and discriminate on the basis of race," yet looking at the right wing actions, that's what the right wing does - deficit spend, bomb babies, and discriminate in favor of whites. But part of discredit any opponent is to blame the opponent for exactly what you, yourself, are doing.

She goes on to say Yankees (liberals as she calls them) are filled with hate. Once again, accuse the person you oppose of doing what you, yourself, are doing - hating America.
