Coulter Fears Anus, Foreskin Bombings

RAW STORY

If you didn’t lose your lunch over comments conservative doyenne Ann Coulter made about abortion doctors (“I’m not opposed to shooting abortionists”) or about Jews (“We just want Jews to be perfected, as they say”) or maybe even about John Edwards (whom she called a “faggot”), you might just lose it over her latest quip.

Ann Coulter is against body scans because she doesn’t think they’ll find anal bombs.

Speaking on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night, Coulter declared she was opposed to the Transportation Security Administration’s new push to add body scanners to airports in an effort to detect terrorist’s explosive devices.

O’Reilly countered: If you have a body scan and you have a bomb in your underwear, they can see the bomb through the body scan.

To this, Coulter replied: “No one credible has asserted that… No they’ll be able to see a container… It was spread throughout the diaper. Unless the bomb is inserted under the foreskin, and by the way, I don’t see a clear angle on the anus. That’s a pretty easy hiding place for this.”

“Moreover, the shoe bomber, all of his bomb materials was, I think, 50 milligrams,” Coulter added. “The diaper bomber carried 80 milligrams. As long as there’s carry-on luggage, they’re going to get it on.”

O’Reilly noted that Coulter is in rare agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union, the civil rights group, which argues that the full body scans intrude on Americans’ privacy.

“Even a broken clock twice a day,” Coulter quipped.

“Let’s just say this is all a joke to make Americans feel safe when they are no safer and just us let board airplanes,” Coulter said earlier in the interview. “I promise you if they start doing all this you’re naked body will show up on [the New York Post’s] Page Six” gossip column.

Coulter’s comments were highlighted early Wednesday by Mediaite.com.

Thoughts on Bill O’Reilly and Squeaky the Chicago Mouse

By Roger Ebert

To: Bill O’Reilly
From: Roger Ebert

Dear Bill: Thanks for including the Chicago Sun-Times on your exclusive list of newspapers on your “Hall of Shame.” To be in an O’Reilly Hall of Fame would be a cruel blow to any newspaper. It would place us in the favor of a man who turns red and starts screaming when anyone disagrees with him. My grade-school teacher, wise Sister Nathan, would have called in your parents and recommended counseling with Father Hogben.

Yes, the Sun-Times is liberal, having recently endorsed our first Democrat for President since LBJ. We were founded by Marshall Field one week before Pearl Harbor to provide a liberal voice in Chicago to counter the Tribune, which opposed an American war against Hitler. I’m sure you would have sided with the Trib at the time.

I understand you believe one of the Sun-Times misdemeanors was dropping your syndicated column. My editor informs me that “very few” readers complained about the disappearance of your column, adding, “many more complained about Nancy.” I know I did. That was the famous Ernie Bushmiller comic strip in which Sluggo explained that “wow” was “mom” spelled upside-down.

Your column ran in our paper while it was owned by the right-wing polemicists Conrad Black (Baron Black of Coldharbour) and David Radler. We dropped it to save a little money after they looted the paper of millions. Now you call for an advertising boycott. It is unusual to observe a journalist cheering for a newspaper to fail. At present the Sun-Times has no bank debt, but labors under the weight of millions of dollars in tax penalties incurred by Lord Black, who is serving an eight-year stretch for mail fraud and obstruction of justice. We also had to pay for his legal expenses.

There is a major difference between Conrad Black and you: Lord Black is a much better writer and thinker, and authored a respected biography about Roosevelt, who we were founded to defend. That newspapers continue to run your column is a mystery to me, since it is composed of knee-jerk frothings and ravings. If I were an editor searching for a conservative, I wouldn’t choose a mad dog. My recommendation: The admirable Charles Krauthammer.

Bill, I am concerned that you have been losing touch with reality recently. Did you really say you are more powerful than any politician?

That reminds me of the famous story about Squeaky the Chicago Mouse. It seems that Squeaky was floating on his back along the Chicago River one day. Approaching the Michigan Avenue lift bridge, he called out: Raise the bridge! I have an erection!
