It's Hard Out There For A Wimp

I love this...Ann Coulter's latest column on the Oscars:

In case you missed the Oscars last Sunday night, here are the highlights:

— Best song went to a musical tribute to the overseers of human sex slaves, an occupation known as "pimping";
— best picture went to a movie about racism in Los Angeles;
— best supporting actor went to the movie about how oil companies murder people; and
— best supporting actress went to the movie about how pharmaceutical companies murder people.

Curiously missing from Oscar night's festivities was any reference, even in passing, to the 150,000 brave Americans currently risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On behalf of red state America, let me be the first to say: "Screw you, Hollywood."

What she said :-). I can't abide watching those plastic phony people parades, I don't know how anyone can sit and watch those self-important fakes for an entire Oscar telecast. More from Ann:

This may have been the most American Oscars yet, if America consisted of beautiful airheads in $50,000 dresses. And that was just the guys in "Brokeback Mountain."

I believe this marks the first time in Oscars history that an award recipient shouted, "Thank you, Jesus!" upon receiving his award. Admittedly, this was the only part of the speech that didn't have to be bleeped and it was for a song titled, "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp," but it's still a step forward.

She certainly has a way with words, doesn't she?
