All political violence is committed by the left in this country,

said Ann Coulter, continuing her livelihood of making preposterous proclamations designed to inflame any reasonable person enough to produce a counter attack. Given a sufficiently absurd, preposterous or outrageous premise, that becomes so difficult that most of us are reduced to tears and she to witch-like cackles.

Of course, the fulcrum of that statement, as it so often is, is the definition of "Left." In this case, "Left" would have to include abortion doctor shooters and bombers, schizophrenics trying to impress Jody Foster, people like Byron De La Beckwith and, of course, how can we forget those Islamic "liberals" who blew up the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? If John Wilkes Booth can be a liberal, than there are only three conclusions we can make about Ann Coulter: insane, dishonest, or both.

When something like insisting that there is little danger to a president surrounded by angry opponents equipped with rifles and telescopic sights can inspire even Geraldo Rivera to say she's insane, logic again allows only two conclusions: Rivera is a liberal and ipso facto potentially violent, or he's right and she's insane.

Coulter has a long history of calling the police and claiming people are stalking her. She claims she's more likely to be shot than the president, although one wonders about her reaction to being surrounded by armed men carrying signs calling for her assassination. She said nothing, however, about being more likely to be fed rat poison than the federal judges she deemed worthy of such treatment. I wonder if she has a food taster -- or if she eats what humans eat.
