The Times picked liberal columnist Patt Morrison to review Ann Coulter's newest book, How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must). She begins by calling Coulter "the Miss Mullah of the Peroxide Right."
Like the imaginary monster under the kid's bed, Coulter is only dangerous if you take her seriously. If you do, then she's a woman falsely shouting "fire" in a crowded country. If you don't, she's a far-right Michael Moore with a standing salon appointment — a polemicist with a brilliant shtick...
The cartoon straw men and women Coulter assembles for target practice are funny because they're unrecognizable as real people...Coulter's politics are like those of the Black Panthers: You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. She and her crowd believe they alone hold the pink slip to America, and everyone else is just trying to hot-wire their country.
