Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

All right, set aside a few minutes...

....and read Al Franken's opening speech at his debate with Ann Coulter last month.

REALLY funny, and really insightful.

Ann Coulter's remarks, while not reprinted here, were universally reported to be the conservative's version of "controversial", (i.e. unfunny and racist).

Sample remarks from Ms Coulter includes her opening statement, which immediately referenced the massive immigration rallies that were taking place across Los Angeles.

“I don’t remember the last time I saw that many angry Mexicans,” she said. “Now I know why my towels were a little late coming up to my hotel room.”

It's just like the tax cuts, people. As long as the rich people get to laugh at our expense, it doesn't matter if decency or fairness ever enters the picture.

Those of you who want a recording of this debate on CD can order one from KPCC 89.3 FM, an NPR station which broadcast the event. Mail a $15 check or money order to:

1570 E. Colorado Blvd.
Pasadena, CA 91106

Please include the program, date and your telephone number, should there be any questions regarding your order.
