If you are a Liberal like me, well then you probably share the same feelings I do about Ann Coulter: Ms. Coulter is a thorn in my slightly left of center Liberal BACK SIDE! On soooooo many occasions, I have wanted to send Ms. Coulter a letter, blasting her (especially after seeing Ms. Coulter on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher).

I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.
