Sitting somewhere inrepparttar arena will be interesting. Coulter will glare with her right eye atrepparttar 125863 massive structure and lament that its lugubrious bathos was built with lachrymose tax dollars by schadenfreude liberals; all words found on pages 128 and 129 of her book.

Not to worry. Excuse yourself duringrepparttar 125864 first fight and go torepparttar 125865 gift shop inrepparttar 125866 lobby. You’ll want to buy a voice-activated electronic dictionary with a LCD screen. There is no gift shop, but there isrepparttar 125867 hair-coming-out-his-nose hotdog stand guy and — just your luck — he’s still got a few electronic dictionaries for $14.95; $16.95 with mustard.

Back inrepparttar 125868 stands, you can now understand Coulter. Contretemps, you learn, means, affliction; epiphanic means something akin to religious, and @#%&* (page 309) means Hillary’s serious about running for president.

Wise guy that you are, you’ll want to have a bit of humor ready whenrepparttar 125869 Pacers and Pistons square off in row 12. While Artest is punching an epiphanic (page 105) fan inrepparttar 125870 nose, you will turn and look Coulter inrepparttar 125871 eye and quip, “Geez, I didn’t know these guys could play hockey!!”

If she sniggles (not in her book), you’ve made a hit. If she rambles on about why white hockey players don’t get fined for fighting because they’re, uh, white, then you’ve got a ways to go.

Withrepparttar 125872 game over, it’s time to escort Coulter to a fine dining establishment. At your date’s behest, you mark Ben and Jerry’s offrepparttar 125873 list. Chinese sounds good and if you can’t understand your waiter, does it matter? You can’t understand your date, either.

The conversation turns to politics. (Who woulda known.) Coulter’s right eye gleams as she rants about feminist cornpones (page 235), gun owners’ rights andrepparttar 125874 need to squarshrepparttar 125875 IRS like a bug. So far so good. You decide you may have met your match.

But then you bring up civil liberties and Coulter tussles her hair and – gasp! – she has a left eye after all. Her right eye now covered, she goes apoplectic overrepparttar 125876 smarminess ofrepparttar 125877 war on drugs (pages 246 and 44.) “It’s not about drugs,” you explain. “It’s about personal rights.”

Her left eye glares.

“You know,” you add, “likerepparttar 125878 Patriot Act.”

Her left eye bugs out.

Enough is enough, you decide. Notingrepparttar 125879 O tattooed on her forehead, you get pick uprepparttar 125880 tab. Andrepparttar 125881 tip.

The evening ends when you walk Coulter torepparttar 125882 door of her crib and give her a friendly kiss her on her tattoo. “No wonder,” you surmise, “the Libertarians in Connecticut didn’t want her on their ticket.”

Your conclusion is ineluctable (page 30.)

UK Elections on the Horizon

Written by Birmingham UK Com

Continued from page 1

Looking back overrepparttar last few months it is difficult to see what Labour have managed to get right. The National Education Targets for raising standards in our schools have been all but abandoned as Labour realise that this is neither an election winner or remotely likely of ever being achieved. The Iraqi war continues to be as unpopular as ever and with little chance of any quick fix. Leading up torepparttar 125862 next electionrepparttar 125863 bitterness between Tory and Labour leaders is likely to get worse rather than better.

Labour promised a better NHS and an improved education system. After years of Labour,repparttar 125864 general perception is that nothing has changed. If anything it has got worse. These are serious issues forrepparttar 125865 Labour government that will cost them dearly in terms of votes. This election could be a close run thing after all.

So what is wrong with Britain? What arerepparttar 125866 big issues? Crime is still seen as a big problem inrepparttar 125867 UK. The NHS is in a mess. In some hospitalsrepparttar 125868 number of nurses from overseas outnumber those fromrepparttar 125869 UK. Our public transport is amongstrepparttar 125870 most dangerous and expensive inrepparttar 125871 world,repparttar 125872 rich get richer,repparttar 125873 minimum wages stay pitifully low andrepparttar 125874 number of immigrants show no real signs of decreasing in any great numbers. The immigration issue is already a political hot potato which will cost Blair even more votes.

So, who will you vote for whenrepparttar 125875 time comes? If you stay at home then you can’t complain about who wins – Voting at least gives you that right!
