Tit for Tet
By Mike Rappaport

That's the name of Ann Coulter's new column, which is excellent. The column has the usual mix of a great point, some slashing jokes at the expense of liberals, and I am sure some exaggerations (although I am not certain I can find them). Here are two excerpts. First:

We have liberated the Iraqi people from a brutal dictator who gassed his own people, had weapons of mass destruction, invaded his neighbors, harbored terrorists, funded terrorists and had reached out to Osama bin Laden. Liberals may see Saddam's mass graves in Iraq as half-full, but I prefer to see them as half-empty.
Second:

And yet the constant drumbeat of failure, quagmire, Abu Ghraib, Bush-lied-kids-died has been so successful that merely to say the war in Iraq is going well provokes laughter. The distortions have become so pervasive that Michael Moore teeters on the brink of being considered a reliable source.
