Can I laugh now?

Liberals are in a snit over Ann Coulter's sarcastically referring to Helen Thomas an “old Arab”. Apparently being called an “old Arab” is really, really bad, whereas being called “Hitler” is acceptable. (If I were Arab, I think I might not appreciate that).

In context, what Ann wrote in regards to Jeff Gannon being able to get a temporary daily pass to the White House briefings was:

Press passes can't be that hard to come by if the White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of the president. Still, it would be suspicious if Dowd were denied a press pass while someone from "Talon News" got one, even if he is a better reporter.

How is it that Liberals cannot see the attempt at humor on Ann's part? (admittedly, Ann's humor is dripping with sarcasm, but it is obvious when she's speaking “tongue in cheek”)

Ironically, Liberals are also in a snit that Nancy Soderberg's exchange with Jon Stewart (fourth item), where she said,

“As a Democrat, you don't want anything nice to happen to the Republicans, and you don't want them to have progress. But as an American, you hope good things would happen.”

...is not being recognized as the “obvious” joke that they claim it was.

Right.
