Time Ragazine

There are lots of reasons to dislike Time Magazine. Putting President Bush on the cover as "man of the year" after waging war on two nations, one of which has ben proven time and time again as the wrong war at the wrong time predicated by the wrong information. However, this week they give us a fresh cover story to loath. Ann Coulter made this week's cover as M.s Right. Well I hope they meant that by Right they meant where Coulter stands on the Political Spectrum, however, it does beg the double entendre's other meaning. Being right is certainly not Ms. Coulter's strongpoint, and you don't have to go too far to find all the lies she has spewed in her time.

There is plenty of chatter on the left side of the sphere on this one. i am sure the right will call the left jealous that perhaps Michael Moore has not yet been hailed as worthy of front page glorification. But at least Michael Moore's arguments are based on fact. He may make inflamatory comments, however, he hasn't yet suggested where terrorists shoulddirect their attacks.

But I noticed that Time has a little poll on their Coulter page which goes pretty far into the reasons why Time should NOT have profiled her in the first place, let alone in any type or kind of political light:

Does Ann Coulter make a positive contribution to American political culture?

Controversy sells just about anything. However, with its dubious reporting, Time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin' into the future Goldwater era?
