Now, Coulter doesn’t seem to be a Michael Bellesiles — but she ought to acknowledge her errors. They matter. Coulter’s argument is that the tenor of discourse is different for liberals than it is for conservatives — that conservatives use facts and logic while liberals scream, rant, and engage in character assassination. Sloppy facts undermine her argument. The truth is that “both” sides see the other as evil or stupid. If only one’s opponents would give logic a chance they would see the error of their ways!
Conservatives, like liberals, need to look in the mirror and be honest with themselves about their discourse. (I’m not the first right-of-center person to take Coulter to task for her rhetoric.)
