http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | OMYGAWD! The lovely Right Queen of Darkness, Ann Coulter may have just switched over to the even darker and lefter side.
Ms. Coulter recently wrote that "the left has embraced FBI agent Coleen Rowley as a modern Joan of Arc," with Ann calling her an "incipient Mark Fuhrman."
The crux of Coulter's argument is that in saying that the FBI ignored information it had on Zacarias Moussaoui, Crowley didn't offer anything that the FBI could have hung its collective hats on. That being a Muslim in flight school who had overstayed his visa and refused to consent to a search of his computer was tantamount to nada.
She added that Moussaoui "refusing consent to a search is not considered suspicious, since it is your right to refuse. Any other rule would allow cops to bootstrap their way into a warrant...I don't think so."
I can almost hear Coulter's membership dues being dropped into the ACLU's coffers.
I know that the Way-Conservative Blonde Bombshell has long been known to shock the pants off the political cosmos with her dagger-like convictions and conclusions, but supporting the legal rights of scum? More likely I expected to hear, "that's the domain of the scums of the left."
What's next? Will Coulter be marching against the death penalty? Coulter explained that Moussaoui was confirmed by the French Intelligence Service to have affiliations with radical fundamentalist Islamic groups, but that fact proved no probable cause. "Being in league with known terrorists may be suspicious, but it is not probable cause to believe that a particular crime is being or has been committed by a specific individual," said the Angular Attorney.
Will she be joining the Dershowitz team? Will she be advising Mousaaoui In his own defense?! But then I read on. She likened former President Clinton to a terrorist. I want to quote her correctly. What she actually said was, "Being in league with known terrorists may be suspicious, but it is not probable cause to believe that a particular crime is being or has been committed by a specific individual. Were the law otherwise, one could get a warrant to search anyone who associates with the Clintons.
Yep, that's the old Coulter we know and love. How could she possibly miss a shot at the Clintons when discussing someone who is alleged to participating in the destruction of American lives?
But Coulter went on, confirming that she is not only firm in overkill and unfathomable mean-spiritedness. She slam-dunked topped herself with the final statement of her witty piece.
"The FBI allowed thousands of Americans to be slaughtered on the altar of political correctness. What more do liberals want? "
Yep, nothing's changed, except... Ah, forget it. I just can't top that.
