The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

It's death, Jim, but not as we know it

Ann Coulter has made quite a career of outraging people, which is all very well and good, but has she gone too far this time?

[E]very time Americans get a gander at these lunatics ranting about the "Great Satan" and the "Zionist entity," we can't believe we're at war with such a comical enemy. No wonder they dream of an afterlife with 72 hot teenage girls. These guys are klutzes. Nerds. Dweebs. In the Las Vegas of life they're at the convention center with the other "Star Trek" fans.

Offending liberals is one thing, but insulting Trekkies? The world — their world, anyway — will judder on its axis.

Wonder what she thinks of the Ferengi?

"The only person you can trust is someone you don't trust."

I doubt that's an actual Rule of Acquisition, but it oughta be.

That, and when it comes to nerds, Trekkies are hardly bottom of the barrel.

Luke Ski:

"A Trekker is a Star Trek fan. A Trekkie is someone who insists that you call him a Trekker."

Personally, I kinda like "Dignity and an empty sack is worth the sack."

I think these guys are all hot for the 72 babes is that the Arab babes are all covered up and sequestered and they never get to know them.

If they spent their time in singles bars answering the important question, "What's your sign?" they wouldn't have such lofty ideas about girls.

Also--a bunch of adolescent girls giggle until they collectively make a hissing sound like air being let out of a tire.

Don't these guys have sisters?

Yep ... Ann has gone too far. Hey, we don't make fun of her Mary Kay conventions...
