Ann Coulter asserts in her latest column, “Historic victory for Diebold!,” that the 2006 midterm election represented “the death throes of a dying party.” Her statement may well be true, but it’s not the Democrats who are in trouble. The Libertarian-versus-Christianist rift is deepening, and may well split the GOP in two. It is unclear who will get custody of the shared corruption.
MediaMatters has already shown the falsity of her claim that the Democrats’ gains were “pathetic” by historical standards. Once again, Coulter is the “half-bright” with “absolutely no concept of yesterday.” (Of course, that’s not news to anyone who’s read her books.)
