Today, on Sean Hannity’s radio show (yeah, I listen to it from time to time… it’s a guilty pleasure… or downright torture, depending on Hannity’s mood) I’m listening in and who does he have on? Ann Coulter, of course. I’m thinking “Ugh. Am I going to have to change the channel now?” And then suddently, I hear the words – from the mouth of the firemouth herself – “I will vote for and campaign for Hilary Clinton if John McCain wins the Republican Nomination”
She said a number of very odd things: that Hilary is more conservative than John McCain, that John McCain was wrong to criticize Rumsfeld’s failed Iraq policy, etc.
What’s next? Osama bin Laden for Mitt Romney?
I will say this though – when I heard what she said I was laughing in disbelief, and I laughed hard.
Mormon leader Gordon B. Hinckley died Sunday night at age 97, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints announced.Hinckley served as president of the Salt Lake City-based church since 1995 and has been a member of its top leadership since the 1960s. He died about 7 p.m. Sunday (9 p.m. ET) with his family by his side, church officials announced.
The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, which becomes the nearly 13 million-member church’s governing body upon the death of the president, will choose a successor after Hinckley’s funeral.
While I’m not Mormon, it’s sad to see Gordon go, he was a good egg for the most part. He was a fairly reasonable person, and had a very compassionate soul. I wonder how the LDS Church will operate under Mr. Monson’s leadership.
