The Beast's Top 50 

I somehow managed to miss the excellent blog known as The Beast until somebody on an Atrios comment thread pointed to this post.

The 50 Most Loathesome People In America

50. Ann Coulter
Crimes: Coulter plummets down the list as she slips into irrelevance. As her columns degenerate further into absurd, incoherent attacks against her own personal paranoid fantasy of fanged, drooling, Saddam-loving liberals who hate America and childish France-bashing, we find our outrage slowly giving way to a baffled “I can’t believe I used to go out with you” feeling. Her arguments are ridiculous, her vitriol forced, her hatchet face even harder to look at. Still, she insulted a one-armed war veteran, called reports of the hundreds of tons of missing munitions in Iraq false, claimed Wesley Clark was pro-infanticide, and blamed Abu Ghraib on the presence of women in the armed forces—they’re not all like you, Ann—and on and on. It’s just not worth debunking someone who has no credibility in the first place.

Smoking Gun: Has credibility in the minds of more people than we can stomach acknowledging.

Punishment: Skull crushed with rock.
Go read. Number 3 might make you go "ouch".

NOTE: There's been some technical problems in Xanastan recently. Blogger had me down on a no-babbling-for-YOU list off and on and my email, for reasons completely unknown, will send but not receive for the last several days. Anybody been trying to get hold of me, I'm not ignoring you, I've just gone deaf. I just got about three days worth come through so things may be improving. Off to do some research on how email works with Firefox because Outlook Express is about outta here.
