Coulter vs. Moyers

Ann Coulter's columns are usually about attacking someone. This weeks target: Bill Moyers. Her charge: He's a liberal (of course, just about anyone is a liberal compared to Coulter).

Here's a comparison of the two "journalist's" public recognition:

Bill Moyers awards:
numerous Emmy Awards;
Ralph Lowell medal for contribution to public television;
George Peabody awards, 1976, 1980, 1985-86, 1988-90;
DuPont/Columbia Silver Baton award, 1979, 1986, 1988;
Gold Baton award, 1991;
George Polk awards, 1981, 1986.

Ann Coulter awards:
still looking...

Coulter wrote: "Moyers has clearly reached the next-to-last stage of the megalomaniac's life cycle: the persecution complex." But I don't think it was him that was still whining about
pies being thrown at him half a year ago...

Coulter wrote: "If it were possible that he actually believed in God..." Hey Ann! Did you know he's an
ordained Baptist Minister?

Coulter wrote: "In his lengthy diatribe against Rice, Moyers said she had cried wolf, intentionally misleading 'America and the world about the case for invading Iraq.'" Guess what Ann, she did. But I guess, since you watch Fox News, you haven't heard about the "
Downing Street Memo."

And she goes on and on: "Moyers also said the agenda of the coming theocracy 'includes using the taxing power to transfer wealth from working people to the rich.'" Since non-partisan economists all across America (and the World) indicate that this is what is actually happening, it is understandable that the only response she could come up with was
"And we'd appreciate it if you poor people would fold the bills a little more neatly before mailing them in next time."
Leave it to Ann Coulter to make a not-funny joke about a not-funny topic.
