Pop entertainers like Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter are not authentic, deserve only contempt, and should be ashamed of their gross disrepect of authentic Americans like John Edwards and Rocky Anderson, both of whom are real-deal people with records of actual work, success, and importance. Edwards you know about, as you know also of Coulter's recent catty, book-selling slur against him. (Her market share among bunker builders and posse comitati is at an all-time high, I suppose). Rocky Anderson is the mayor of Salt Lake City. According to the NYT, "He went on Bill OâReillyâs show on Fox News on Tuesday, for example, and Mr. OâReilly promptly called him 'a kook.'" Real-deal people who strive, succeed, and sometimes fail ought not have to endure the mendacity of carny barkers like O'Reilly and Coulter. Entertainment has its place, but why anyone would consider O'Reilly and Coulter any different in kind from Anna Nicole or P.Diddy is beyond me. Let them give you your kicks -- and by all means let 'em make big money for it -- but not at the expense of real and important people like Edwards and Anderson.
