Mark Steyn bodyslams critics of Coulter's 'Godless: The Church of Liberalism'

Ok, first things first: I do not usually get involved in internal American politics, including voting for recent presidents. I did, however, interview and take part in a program on a radio station to in the States about the influence of American - Israeli voters living in Israel on the 2004 elections).

Having said that, and reminding you that I don't really care for columnist Ann Coulter's waaaay over the edge political rants, uber-columnist Mark Steyn rarely fails to deftly skewer the political bonfires of the inanities, especially in the US, UK and Europe. In this column, he outdoes himself, handily filleting Coulter's critics:

"Ann Coulter's new book Godless: The Church of Liberalism is a rollicking read very tightly reasoned and hard to argue with. After all, the progressive mind regards it as backward and primitive to let religion determine every aspect of your life, but takes it as advanced and enlightened to have the state determine every aspect of your life.

"In 2004, in the gym of Newton High School in Iowa, Senator John Edwards skipped the dreary Kerry-as-foreign-policy-genius pitch and cut straight to the Second Coming. "We will stop juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases... When John Kerry is president, people like Christopher Reeve are going to get up out of that wheelchair and walk again." Mr. Reeve had died the previous weekend, but he wouldn't have had Kerry and Edwards been in the White House. Read his lips: no new crutches. The healing balm of the Massachusetts Messiah will bring the crippled and stricken to their feet, which is more than Kerry's speeches ever do for the able-bodied. As the author remarks, "If one wanted to cure the lame, one could reasonably start with John Edwards."

Like him or hate her, you know you want to read it all
