Apparently there's a minor commotion over Ann Coulter's column last week, which isn't surprising: hello, she's a performance artist who works in the medium of kerfuffle. That's just Annie punching the time clock. Anyway: when her column, defending Jeff Gannon, ran on Universal Press Syndicate last week, a racial identifier got dropped from this sentence:
"Press passes can't be that hard to come by if the White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of the president."We'd mildly object to this—or to her increasingly deficient logic—but we have a habit of calling Coulter "that old white biddy," so that would make us hypocrites. — C.S.
