A Fool and His Folly

Ann Coulter posts 'Have You Hugged an Islamo-Fascist Today' on Here are some of my favorite quotes:
[...]The only thing that makes the cut-and-run crowd mad enough to fight is the idea that someone, somewhere might be criticizing radical Islam.[...]

...(On the basis of Ahmadinejad's claims, instead of looking for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, how about we start looking for gays in Iran?)[...]

Conservative speakers are constantly being physically attacked on college campuses -- including Bill Kristol, Pat Buchanan, David Horowitz and me, among others. Fortunately the attackers are Democrats, so they throw like girls and generally end up with their noses bloodied by pretty college coeds. But that doesn't make it right.[...]
Coulter gets a lot of criticism for lowering the level of serious, intelligent public discourse. That may be so, but I haven't heard a lot of serious, intelligent public discourse from those of whom Ann is speaking.

Proverbs written back to back:
-Answer not a fool according to his folly,
lest you be like him yourself.

-Answer a fool according to his folly,
lest he be wise in his own eyes. (Proverbs 26:4,5 ESV)
Many put more emphasis on verse 4, Coulter stresses verse 5.
