You Knew It Was Online Somewhere
Via The Smirking Chimp comes the Top 10 Most Moronic Stories of 2003.
10 Ann Coulter unilaterally decided that Joseph McCarthy, whose name is synonymous with malicious prosecution and persecution of political enemies and the innocent, who at long last had no shame, was a Great American Hero who should be revered. It's pretty clear that she was rewriting history since McCarthy was a great embarassment to all Americans and the principles and values of fair trials and due process upon which the nation was founded and because he was a Republican. Unable to reconcile in her mind the infallability of Republicans and the treachery of McCarthy, she simply decided that McCarthy wasn't treacherous at all, despite that fact being well-documented, in spite of the Venona papers that she foolishly asserts exhonorated him of wrongdoing. I don't know how many times I have to say this, but even if every single person McCarthy accused were patently guilty, it still doesn't excuse his behaviour.
