Ann Coulter Claims Michelle O Wanted Romney Post-Debate: VIDEO

CoulterDebate

Ann Coulter's dissection of the first presidential debate is chock full of her typical hyperbole and "shock" commentary, like her assertion that President Obama's ears are too big and that he "looked depressed" and like he's rather be playing golf.

The most egregious display of intentionally illogical trouble-making, though, came when the conservative pundit claimed First Lady Michelle Obama wanted to go home with Mitt Romney on her and the president's anniversary night.

He looked depressed. He looked anemic. Those big ears poking out. The first time I watched the debate, I was mostly listening to it and Romney was killing. And then I watched it again and toward the end was actually watching it and the visual made it so much worse, Obama was depressed and looking down. You could see at the end of the debate, he knew that, anniversary or not, Michelle wanted to go home with Mitt.

Ann Coulter: We Owe Civil Rights to Blacks, Not Gays - VIDEO

Coulter

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter responded to a passage in her new book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama in which she claims that various groups, including gays, have "commandeered the civil rights movement", the HuffPost reports:

Coulter said that she thought that "civil rights are for blacks" because the U.S. has a "legacy of slavery and Jim Crow laws."

She added, "We don't owe the homeless. We don't owe feminists. We don't owe women who are desirous of having abortions, or gays who want to get married to one another." She said that "much of the left...dropped the blacks after five minutes" to argue for "civil rights" for other groups of people.

Stephanopoulos interrupted Coulter asking, "Immigrant rights are not civil rights?" Coulter confirmed that she only thinks "civil rights are for blacks."

She argued, "What have we done to the immigrants? We owe black people something. We have a legacy of slavery. Immigrants haven 't even been in this country."

Sean Hannity Says President Looks Like 'Wimp' On Libya Attack: VIDEO

Seanhannitywimp

In a conversation with conservative pundit Ann Coulter about the attacks on U.S. Embassies in Libya and Egypt, Fox News host Sean Hannity said that President Obama's response, predictably described as an "apology," makes the commander-in-chief look like a "wimp". He does not say, however, that the response he and Coulter are discussing in fact came from embassy officials in Cairo.

Coulter, meanwhile, pooh-poohed reports that an anti-Muslim video sparked the protests; rather, she thinks they were inspired by 9/11 and by the Arab Spring, which she thinks we need to go back in time to stop. She also claims that President Obama's support for the "riot-like" Arab Spring shows he's "utterly naive on foreign policy".

Ann Coulter: Liberals Use 'Judicial Activism' to 'Invent Rights' Like Gay Marriage and Abortion — VIDEO

Coulter

In a discussion about Obama's remarks on the Supreme Court and judicial activism, Ann Coulter told FOX News' Sean Hannity that liberals use it to invent rights.

Said Coulter:

"Most of us learn how a bill becomes law and what the supreme court does in grade school. Liberals are often trying to push this idea that judicial review means overturning any act of Congress. Or rather judicial activism. Judicial activism is anything when the Supreme Court doesn’t obey what the constitution says — like when they invent rights to gay marriage or rights to abortion or rights to go free if a specific Miranda warning wasn’t read to them. Normally you get the opposite from liberals, because whatever they can’t get through the process of democracy by having people vote on it, they get five justices on the Supreme Court to announce it’s a constitutional right. You only have judicial activism on the left, never from the conservative justices or they would be fantasizing a constitutional right to a flat tax, to bear nuclear arms."

NEWS: Whitney Houston Has Died (UPDATED)

Picture 13

Road UPDATE:
Whitney Houston is dead at 48. Cause unknown. From CBS:

Whitney Houston, who ruled as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, has died. She was 48.

... News of Houston's death came on the eve of music's biggest night — the Grammy Awards. It's a showcase where she once reigned, and her death was sure to case a heavy pall on Sunday's ceremony. Houston's longtime mentor Clive Davis was to hold his annual concert and dinner Saturday; it was unclear if it was going to go forward.

At her peak, Houston the golden girl of the music industry. From the middle 1980s to the late 1990s, she was one of the world's best-selling artists. She wowed audiences with effortless, powerful, and peerless vocals that were rooted in the black church but made palatable to the masses with a pop sheen.

... She had the he perfect voice, and the perfect image: a gorgeous singer who had sex appeal but was never overtly sexual, who maintained perfect poise.

Road In the New York Times, Charles M. Blow turns the Roland Martin flap into a teachable moment:

The truest measure of a man, indeed of a person, is not whom he lies down with but what he stands up for. If we must be judged, let it be in this way. And when we fall short, as we sometimes will, because humanity is fallible, let us greet each other with compassion and encouragement rather than ridicule and resentment.

Whatever was in Martin’s heart, what was in his Twitter messages wasn’t helpful. They may not lead directly to intimidation or violence, but they may add to a stream of negativity that feeds a culture in which intimidation and violence by some twisted minds is all too real. I don’t believe that Martin wanted that.

Let’s show the whole of mankind that men can indeed be kind, even to other men who dare to wear pink suits.

Road At the "Toward Healing and Renewal" symposium, Vatican finally "gets religion" on sex abuse prevention reform:

... the idea was to share this experience with the rest of the Catholic world, especially places where the sexual abuse crisis has not yet exploded, in the hope that for once, church leaders can defuse the bomb before it goes off. [emphasis added]

... We saw Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Vatican's powerful Congregation for Bishops, presiding over a liturgy of repentance -- effectively symbolizing that the crisis isn't just about wayward priests, but it includes failures by the hierarchy. We heard American Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, concede that much of what's been accomplished to date is due to media pressure, insisting on a "more proactive" approach.

Pope Benedict XVI dispatched a message to the symposium, endorsing the effort to build "a vigorous culture of effective safeguarding and victim support."

The Vatican's top sex abuse prosecutor, Maltese Monsignor Charles Scicluna, bluntly said it is "not acceptable" for bishops to ignore anti-abuse protocols and openly called for imposing sanctions under church law on those bishops who drop the ball.

“Atheistic evolution isn’t an intelligent belief, as atheists would have the black community believe,” said Ray Comfort, whose new project is “Hitler, God, and the Bible.”

“It’s a philosophy for the dumbest of the dumb, and it’s an insult to the black heritage to try and hoodwink them into believing that nothing created everything,” he said.

“That’s a scientific impossibility, and African Americans have got too much intelligence to believe such an insane worldview. That’s why there are so few black atheists. Most atheists are white, educated, and greatly lacking when it comes to common sense,” he said.

Road Coulter and Bachmann witnesses in bizarre Tea Party scam case:

After no one took him up on his televised “lie detector challenge,” the man accused of scamming his co-investors in the failed television venture Tea Party HD is trying to make his case by calling a number of high-profile conservative witnesses like Michele Bachmann and Ann Coulter to his defense.

TPHD was founded in 2010 by Loiacono and Bill Hemrick, purporting to be the “world’s first HD provider of news about the Tea Party.” But Hemrick and the five other businessmen who invested in the company claim that Loiacono never put in his share of the funding, used the existing money as his “personal bank account,” and didn’t do the work laid out by the initial deal. “In reality it was an investment scheme to defraud politically conservative-minded citizens who support the Tea Party mission,” the suit said.

Lavigne was removed, unconscious and with a body temperature of 40.5 C, from the Ferme Reine de la Paix in the Drummondville, Que., area after a 911 call that Radio-Canada said had been made by Gabrielle Frechette, a self-styled therapist who was the seminar's operator."

Road Does Yelp kill the fun of exploration?

“The efficiency that the Web has brought has downsides,” says Edward Tenner, a historian of technology and culture. “On balance, it works against happy accidents.” Tenner calls this counter-serendipity: when preconceived notions prevent lucky flukes. For instance, a poorly rated restaurant on Yelp might have a few die-hard fans — outliers who, for whatever reason, love the place. Their reviews might even be posted. But many of us go with the general consensus, writing off anywhere with a three-star ranking or less. “Is it possible that a place you really would have liked doesn’t have many positive comments, but you would have been one of the few positive ones?” asks Tenner.

Road How George Washington almost became a zombie:

The morning after Washington died, his step-granddaughter Elizabeth Law arrived with a family friend, William Thornton. History best remembers Thornton as the architect who created the original design for the Capitol building, but he was also a trained physician, having studied at the University of Edinburgh. Although he did not practice medicine for much of his life, Thornton always had a keen interest in the workings of the human body, and he suggested a novel method for resurrecting the fallen warrior. Thornton told Washington's wife Martha that he wanted to thaw Washington's body by the fire and have it rubbed vigorously with blankets. Then he planned to perform a tracheotomy so he could insert a bellows into Washington's throat and pump his lungs full of air, and finally to give Washington an infusion of lamb's blood.

"There's three love stories in the film: There's Edward and Wallis, the blossoming love story between Wally and Evgeni, and there's the love affair between the two women," she said. "It's an important mythological story to tell ... of a woman helping another woman. I don't think it's something that we see very often in films. Mostly, we see women sabotaging other women."
