Here’s a pretty stunning exchange, where Menin challenges Coulter on her comments about Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who is black:
MENIN: You recently said about Representative Maxine Waters that she ‘couldn’t get a job that didn’t involve wearing a paper hat without affirmative action.’ How is that not racism?
COULTER: She, I think, actually, is very very stupid — despite the fact that she’s black! It is possible to be black and stupid.
MENIN: You don’t think there is a racial undercurrent to what you’re saying about her?
COULTER: Um no, I think I wouldn’t have said it if I had a racist bone in my body, but I don’t look at the world the way liberals do, as black white black white black white — though I do notice the Democrats keep demanding the votes of blacks without taking blacks seriously for serious positions and brushing aside Paterson and brushing aside Rangel and brushing aside Donna Brazile, while blacks within the Republican party who are qualified actually do advance and advance quite well.
When Menin pointed out that Rangel’s “brushing aside” had been due to legitimate transgressions, Coulter brought up Chris Dodd, and assigns blame for the mortgage crisis on Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.
Later on in the program, she addressed the comments she made on the Joy Behar show, and reaffirmed who she felt the true danger to Obama was: “If Obama gets shot, it’s going to be by a liberal.” (Starts at about 2:29; prior to that she talks about her feelings on public schools).
Here Coulter addresses the “Jews-becoming-Perfected-Christians” controversy:

Treemometers: A new scientific scandal
A scientific scandal is casting a shadow over a number of recent peer-reviewed climate papers. At least eight papers purporting to reconstruct the historical temperature record times may need to be revisited, with significant implications for contemporary climate studies, the basis of the IPCC's assessments. A number of these involve senior climatologists at the British climate research centre CRU at the University East Anglia. In every case, peer review failed to pick up the errors. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/09/29/yamal_scandal/

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America written by Thomas Jefferson. Please keep the current proposed healthcare legislation in mind as you read this appeal to freedom and liberty:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
....Almost done. Skipping the vigorous condemnation of King George 3, we conclude with....
We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor. (End)
This blogger is NOT suggesting a revolution as such. I only wish to remind "ourselves" that the principles embodied in this declaration have resounded throughout the world in all the years since July 4, 1776. American reformers, whatever the cause - whether for abolition of slavery, for barring racial segregation, for advancing the rights of women - have reminded the public that "all men are created equal". Wherever people have fought against undemocratic regimes, they have argued using Jefferson's words, that governments derive "their just powers from the consent of the governed". When the government no longer responds to the will of the people who have elected and entrusted their counsil and betsowed authority, then either revolution or adversity will soon follow! The latter occurs when good men do nothing in the face of iniquity!

In the Beaufort Observer yesterday:
Rush Limbaugh to President Obama: "You lie" (about jobs "created or saved") And unfortunately, the data support Rush's argument!
As though it's a darn shame that Rush Limbaugh, of all people, is actually factually correct about something! It begins:
"The question can be simply stated: "How many jobs did the $787 billion Stimulus Plan create?" The answer cannot be state at all, with any degree of accuracy. By most people's reasoning that means that the $787 billion has been wasted. Now we realize it has not all been "spent" but since it is assumed they will do so as they have done for what they have already spent, we contend that the accountability must be applied to the full $787 billion. The original idea can also be simply stated: In the face of rising unemployment President-elect Obama in December and January of 2009, just before he took office, advocated for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) saying that it would create "3-4 million jobs and 90% of these jobs will be created in the private sector."
You can listen to it in his January 10. 2009 weekly radio address. Unemployment was at 7.2% at the time."
The "Report" he refers to in his address can be read by clicking here. A few day later Obama raised the estimate to 4 million jobs, again 90% in the private sector. The article goes on to say that:
"Even the president admits the Stimulus Plan has not worked. Within weeks of passage he switched from saying it would create 3-4 million jobs to saying that it would "save" that many jobs. Unemployment continued to climb. Now he has reduced the number to 650,000 jobs "saved or created". This ABC article chronicles some of the erroneous numbers that Team Obama have been putting out."
Lies, all lies Mr. President! See, Rush is not the idiot the antagostic "left" consistently portrays him as!

P.S.: Rush is no bully, he's simply misunderstood by clueless critics!
