*headdesk* I can't stand Ann Coulter. I wish she'd just go away already. She's said the most horrible things...What really made me angry last year was when she said in essence that she'd think the idea of Richard Dawkins burning in hell was funny. Oh, sure, she's a Christian...suuuure she is.

Well, on the bright side... Coulter is so insane that it's hopefully of a wake-up call to most sensible Americans that the Republican leadership has started to really go off the deep-end. (As if Bush wasn't good enough to indicate this.)

I was getting psyched up for a date I had planned, something I'd been waiting all week for. It ended up getting postponed though. You can be sure I will update on this if and when there is more to say (friends-only, of course).
