Too Funny Not To Share

I've tried to stay out of the "Muslim Cartoon" flap for the most part, enough of the blogging world has been hitting it. But then I came across a link to a great article written by Ann Coulter today "Calvin and Hobbes -- And Mohammed". (h/t Charlie Sykes)

Now, as a fairly conservative person, I know this is something that could get me in trouble, but I'll admit, I don't regularly read Coulter. I generally find her obnoxious and over the top, a trait I hate in liberals, so in fairness I should in conservatives too.

However, her take on Islam and the cartoons is a riot, and very much on point with quotes like this:

In order to express their displeasure with the idea that Muslims are violent, thousands of Muslims around the world engaged in rioting, arson, mob savagery, flag-burning, murder and mayhem, among other peaceful acts of nonviolence.
It's a pretty good summary, as is this:

Muslims are the only people who make feminists seem laid-back.

The little darlings brandish placards with typical Religion of Peace slogans, such as: "Behead Those Who Insult Islam," "Europe, you will pay, extermination is on the way" and "Butcher those who mock Islam." They warn Europe of their own impending 9/11 with signs that say: "Europe: Your 9/11 will come" -- which is ironic, because they almost had me convinced the Jews were behind the 9/11 attack.
Ann is right on in this article, and makes some good points about other religions, read the whole thing and get a good belly laugh for tonight.

For non-laughs, and some good reading on Islam, go visit Lone Pony, who has 4 posts up on the "religion".

Now that made my night! Thanks for the laugh CP! I really love to listen to Coulter. I like to watch her on TV too. I've always been too easy going, so I'm taking lessons from her. ;-)

I love Ann Coulter but I was almost scared before reading the column to see how far she would go but she did a great job as always. No political correctness in her columns.

I read all of Ann Coulter's columns. I love them because she has a way of being hilarious and slightly outrageous while still making darn good points.
Go Ann! :)

Uber- Judge me, please judge me :) Glad you got your giggles.

Rebekah- She does make good points. And I will say, unlike Maureen Dowd, she doesn't whine about being attacked, or ignored, she fights back.

LMC - I figured she'd have gone a little farther myself. I was surprised by the self restraint she showed.

As you probably know, I had to grow into conservatism the hard, since the last time we worked together I was a lib. So, I was late to appreciate Ann Coulter's genious. Really, when you see video of her as a liberal, it's hard to get past the long legs and blond hair, pretty face and great body, that I couldn't really hear what she was saying unless it was paraphrased and taken out of context by various other leftists.

When I suddenly realized that I was a conservative (Gawd, how did that happen?), I started to realize that she was one of the most brilliant minds around, especially when it came to unveiling re-writing of history by liberals and their various other spins.

For instance, not horribly long ago, I had read that Ann Coulter was actually involved in untarnishing McCarthy's legacy. When I researched some of her claims, and researched more about McCarthy and what had transpired from a more neutral view point, I discovered that Ann Coulter was pretty much right on target with the comments that she'd made.

The article was typicle Ann Coulter: succint.
