As Al Franken's new book shows, making fun of Ann Coulter is easy. Almost too easy. But since some people take her seriously, it's important that we do.

This is from her most recent column (via Atrios).

In the wake of Dean's success, the entire Democratic Dream Team is beginning to sound like Dr. Demento. On the basis of their recent pronouncements, the position of the Democratic Party seems to be that Saddam Hussein did not hit us on 9-11, but Halliburton did.

I don't know who Dr. Demento is (it sounds like a Styx song), but I don't think the comparison is supposed to be a lauditory one.

I have a feeling, though, that Coulter is partially correct. The Democratic Party, among others, does not believe that Saddam Hussein hit us on 9-11. It was, uh, Osama bin Laden. Does Coulter have any data to the contrary? Or is she, and her editors, trying to accomplish something else?

You don't know Dr. Demento?!? He's the reason that Weird Al has a job! Oh, the old Dr. Demento shows were great; his video stint on MTV even better. That's where I saw the videos for "Totally Nude", "Take the Skinheads Bowling" and "Fish Heads"...ahh, good memories! That's some quality stuff.

I'm taking the comparision as a huge compliment.

I personally don't make fun of Ann Coulter only because I'm too busy loathing her to think of any catchy zingers.

this is really going to show my age, but anyway, dr. demento used to have a sunday evening program on [i think] KMET in los angeles, playing ridiculous songs. for some reason the one that comes to mind is "pico and sepulveda"
