Why does anyone respond to the ignorant tripe that regularly comes forth from the Coulters, O'Reillys, and Limbaughs of the right-wing loonosphere? Such inane, inaccurate, and hurtful words spoken by more credible figures, yes, by all means, absolutely respond. But these characters are pathological clowns looking to hawk books and ratings. They're not remotely serious or credible. Yes, it's sad and troubling that many Americans do in fact find them quite credible, but responding simply helps to achieve their aims. Besides, your explanations or clarifications are not going to convince any of the legions of Dittoheads and CoulterCreeps, so stop already and let them shrivel on the vine.

(That said, I do agree with those who respond by criticizing the media outlets that give these peddlers of slime a soapbox. Example: I will now only watch NBC when new episodes of "The Office" appear (best show on TV)).
