"Anne Coulter says we’re 'Godless' — we 'liberals.' And by 'liberals,' she means anyone who wants to keep the government out of our underpants, out of Iraq, and out of the business of helping Big Business shoplift America.
"It’s time someone took on the blonde bully.
"Anne, I realize yesterday was special day for you, releasing your book on June 6 — 06-06-06.
"Going through it, I must, admit, is heavy going: Godless is a 300-page brick of solid meanness and pin-head hatreds packaged like a fashion magazine: Big Brother wears Prada.
"You accuse those who don’t sign on to your list of prejudices as the Lord’s enemies. That’s not original, Anne: the Taliban thought of it before you and they too were partial to dressing in black.
"You want to talk about Godless? OK, let’s go:
"Would the Lord lie us into a war?
"Would the Lord let thousands drown in New Orleans while chilling at a golf resort?
"Would the Lord have removed tens of thousands of Black soldiers from the voter rolls as the Republican Party did in 2004?
"You talk about being 'Christian' — but with all your zeal to fire up electric chairs and Abrams tanks, you sound more like a Roman.
"I suggest this, Anne: let’s debate. Set the time, set the place, and I’ll be there. Nose to nose, my facts versus your fanaticism.
"But I know you don’t have the guts to do anything but lob idiocies from your electronic Fox-hole.
"Your new book is called Godless. Your autobiography should be called 'Gutless'.”
