I’d like them both to lose
Michelle Malkin has the scoop on the battle of two evils: Ann Coulter and Tim Rall. ht: Blogger Beer. Tim Rall is suing Ms. Coulter for remarking at a Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.:
Iran is soliciting cartoons on the Holocaust. So far, only Ted Rall, Garry Trudeau, and The New York Times have made submissions.
Interestingly enough, Dave Astor of Editor and Publisher makes no mention of any attempt to get a response from Coulter in either of the two articles written about the lawsuit. I didn’t go to journalism school, but even I know journalists are supposed to ask for comment from both sides of the story.
We can only speculate at Coulter’s defense, but Rall is probably right when he suggests Coulter will resort to calling her remarks satire. In which case, might we advise Rall to claim he is too insignificant to have the limitations of a public figure to defend his reputation, and his expressed views are odious enough that no hyperbole concerning the depths to which he would sink is unbelieveable? Then he might just have a case.
