To highlight their 'movement unity' and 'conservative values,' the archconservatives got together and had a big party to meet and greet the men who want to be the Republican Party's nominee for the Presidency in 2008. The biggest splash of the conference? None of the guys with the stones to put themselves up to run for the most important elected office in the world, but the coolest kid on the school bus ride home from middle school.
Yup, the Worthless Blond one is back, and the reaction is what you'd expect.
But the Coulter apologists are out there, slingin' that same old defense: Ann Coulter is important because she pokes fun at the 'political correctness' that stifles real debate in this country.
You want to hear about stifling debate? If my Pops, my Moms, my Aunts or my Grandmas had ever watched me get up in front of a suit and tie crowd and use language like that, they would have died of embarassment - but not before they kill't me dead by whoppin' my white ass bloody with their belts, hickory branches, yardsticks wrapped in duct tape or anything else within arms reach that might be used as an attitude adjuster. Other people's pops and mamas and grandmamas woulda helped 'em do it, too. Not a damn one of 'em would have cared about how much money I made off 'a talk like that in my last book, neither.
And not one of 'em woulda gone to jail for it, neither. Coroner back home woulda just said, 'boy shoulda known better.'
Why? 'Cause talk like that ain't bein' rebellious against 'political correctness,' that kinda talk is nothing better'n trash. Kids talk like that 'cause their friends do it and they don't know better. Kitchen folk talk like that because what's said in the kitchen means different things. Sometimes folks who are familiar with each other will talk like that while fishin,' huntin,' or just yammerin' away at one another in private settings. But if you're a grown adult standing in front of people wearing suits and ties with the cameras on? Trash talks like that.
Polite people who know how to act with manners and dignity and class don't need to talk like that to get their points across, and can be civil even with people who disagree with them.
That ain't 'political correctness,' that's bein' raised right by your mama and daddy and knowin' how to behave.
American, conservative values indeed.
