(NYTime) G.O.P. Candidates Criticize Slur by Conservative Author Have you ever noticed a certain kind of bully…the kind that makes fun of somebody, usually when they aren’t around, and if anyone takes offense, the bully says, “Hey, it was just a joke. Don’t you have any sense of humor?” Making the victim to blame for their own inability to accept character assassination. Ann Coulter sees herself as a humorist on the level of Mark Twain. It seems obvious to us that Ann has never read Mark Twain. She’s about on the level of Mallard Fillmore, and remember, Mallard Fillmore is a duck. Name calling isn’t satire, it’s just verbal bullying and by claiming it’s Just a Joke, Ann Coulter betrays the essential cowardice that all bullies own.
