Sarah Palin engages in this competition for attention through her inability to understand complex ideas and situations but tweeting on them, nonetheless; Michele Bachmann through her own ignorance of almost everything; Michelle Malkin through her self-absorbed cheerleading goofiness; and, finally, the doyenne of conservative loonies, Ann Coulter, who advocates the jailing of journalists [to the resounding applause of the freedom loving folks at the CPAC convention].
It is interesting that these patriots would listen to, applaud, and encourage the idea of throwing journalists in prison. This is, of course, the favorite method of communist and fascist countries for keeping information away from the people and controlling them. Jailed journalists can't tell people what their leaders are doing.
And did I mention this is a dictator's dream?
Apparently Coulter and her fellow conservatives share that dream. Don't like what journalsts write? Throw them in the clink!
Ann Coulter advocates the exact opposite of what Thomas Jefferson said:
"If it were left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."
Coulter and her conservative fans prefer what dictators prefer and reject Founding Father, Thomas Jefferson's sentiments.
Too bad, Annie, but you've been eclipsed by bigger lunkheads.
You're still controversial, for sure; but Palin and Bachmann outdo your collywobbling rants by magnitudes.
Plus, you're boring.
