Rita Valeriano was one of several protesters inside the hall who, with chants of “Coulter go home!” shouted down the International Free Press Society of Canada organizer who was addressing the crowd.
Valeriano, a 19-year-old sociology and women’s studies student, said later that she was happy Coulter was unable to speak the “hatred” she had planned to.
“On campus, we promise our students a safe and positive space,” she said. “And that’s not what (Coulter) brings.”
They want to create a “safe and positive space” all the while screaming hateful slogans against Coulter.
Also, what childish silly people. Where are they? Kindergarten? It sounds like they’re talking about preschoolers here….which may be the case.
If kids get mommy and daddy’s health care until they’re 26, at 18 their baby ears are probably too delicate to hear a diverse opinion.
Dan Riehl is right, this is not going to end well. Levi Johnson keeps parents of teenage girls awake at night–and it’s not because they’re looking at his scintillating Playgirl pictures. He’s exactly the kind of guy they don’t want their daughters to consort with ever. And here he is, exploiting his child’s family yet again. And he’s disgusted?
Jim Hoft says: “Maybe Levi should call Cindy Sheehan to find out how this story ends.”
Indeed. And I feel as sick watching him in the exploit-cycle as I felt watching Sheehan. It is as though neither of them are self-aware enough to know they’re being used. At the same time, their messages are so rank, that it’s difficult to feel sorry for them.
And Jules Crittendon notes how irrelevant Sarah Palin still is and has this comment on the polls:
It’s not so much that only 23 percent like her, or that 38 percent don’t like her, but that after going through the wringer as the designated target in a presidential campaign and being kicked around ever since, she still has 37 percent who haven’t heard enough or are undecided. That’s a pretty big soft area to work on over the next couple of years, while Obama keeps doing what he’s doing to his own numbers. As I heard some commentator remark the other day, a lot of people thought Ronald Reagan was a fringe joke around this time in Jimmy Carter’s presidency, too. Ball’s in her court.
I’d just like to point out that independents in New Jersey and Virginia overwhelmingly voted for Barack Obama a year ago. Now, they gave conservatives huge wins. The independents are fickle pickles. It’s kinda cool to Palin hate, but that will change as Obama’s policies get less popular.
Also, I find this statement by John Zieglar amusing: “For many reasons, this is by far the best book and greatest literary achievement by a political figure in my lifetime.”
I am all for effusive praise, but come on. I found those sorts of reviews of Obama’s books embarrassing. This is weird, too. But John has his reasons for being so enthusiastic. He says:
Among other things, we discover that Sarah Palin has a ridiculously good memory. People who know me say that I have an amazing ability to recall events and I have written two books, but I was blown away by the level of detail in this project, which encompasses her entire life. Since the timing of Going Rogue did not allow for massive amounts of time and resources to be put into research it had to all be put together — in incredibly short order — by Palin’s own memory and notes. The notion that numerous “news” outlets thirsting to find inaccuracies have yet to find one of major significance (no, a disagreement over the definition of “vetting” does not count) may to be the greatest testament to the book’s remarkable credibility.
We’ll see. I have the book sitting here. Received it today and will read it and review it.
In the meantime, I’ll be thankful that my kids aren’t yet dating age.

Have you seen the Michael Jackson flick, yet? Would you feel that you’re participating in the degradation of American culture if you did? Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center joins me to discuss all this and much more.

They’re a persecuted lot and deserve respect.
Decisions must be made, right?
Kim Priestap follows the line of choices made that may have resulted in Natasha Richardson’s potentially unnecessary death. Quebec has a fine fleet of unusable medical planes and no helicopters.
Socialized medicine often makes decisions that are expedient but immoral. How much is a life worth? It suddenly becomes worth more when a helicopter ride could save it.
More on Richardson’s injury here.
UPDATE: Don Surber quips, “Once again, a government health care plan figures out how to save money on health care — by saving fewer lives.”
John Hawkins of Right Wing News interviewed Ann Coulter. She nails one important reason why it’s more difficult to have a Republican grassroots effort:
So, does the “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy” exist?
Sadly, no. I’ve been trying to get one off the ground for years. Turns out conservatives just aren’t “joiners.” If only we could get some funding. Maybe if we printed up some T-shirts or something.
A Republican grass-roots effort is challenging. People with jobs and lives tend to be too busy to march on the capital and dress up in pink shirts.
