LeftyÂ bloggersÂ enjoyÂ pointing outÂ the factual errors in Ann Coulter’s writing. Now I know why–it’s easy and fun! Coulter parts ways with reality with such frequency, you don’t have to get very far into her columns to find a glaring inaccuracy. Take her December 27 installment, which begins:
(NOTE: This is an updated version of a column by Ann Coulter that first ran six years ago in December.)
President Bush’s Kwanzaa message this year skipped the patently absurd claim of years past that: “African-Americans and people around the world reflect on African heritage during Kwanzaa.” Instead, he simply said: “I send greetings to those observing Kwanzaa.”
Her updates must not have included any fact-checking. The President’sÂ 2006 Kwanza greeting begins:
I send greetings to those observing Kwanzaa.
During the seven days of Kwanzaa leading up to the New Year, friends and family come together in a spirit of love and joy to honor their rich African heritage, reflect on the Seven Principles, and give thanks for the blessings of freedom and opportunity.
Yes, Bush has dropped the patently absurd claim that people “reflect on African heritage,” asserting instead that they “honor their rich African heritage.” Thank you for clearing that up, Ann.
This is just the first 60 or so words of a 900+ word column. I could continue hunting forÂ misleading and/or inaccurate statement, but it’s too easy. In fact, I think that’s exactly what Coulter wants. Every hour that liberal writers spend picking at her columns is an hour they don’t spend doing anything useful, like canvassing, fundraising, or community service.
Fellow bloggers, don’t fall into the trap! Walk away from Coulter’s insidious electronic flypaper. Be free! Hug a child! Live, damn you, live!
