Outrageously stupid quote of the week: Ann Coulter shows off her cultural/political knowledge.

 

When asked by George Stephanopoulos if immigrantscivil rights were being attacked, conservative columnist Ann Coulter showed her knowledge off on TV.

“No. I think civil rights are for blacks. What have we done to the immigrants? We owe black people something. We have a legacy of slavery. Immigrants haven’t even been in this country.”

Is it any wonder that Ms. Coulter has such a conservative following?

And now we turn to the Senate…

A bill making changes to the health-care overhaul cleared the House of Representatives on Sunday night after 11:45 PM by a vote of 220-211.

House lawmakers approved the Reconciliation Bill after approving the original Senate health bill and sending it to President Barack Obama to sign.

Among the changes are an expansion of subsidies to buy insurance and a delay in a tax on high-value health plans.

Harry Reid says they will get it through this week… and, of course, the Republicans are already setting up to defeat it. At this point I wonder if they can.

Quote for the Day – on Health Care Legislation

“We’ll have the votes when the House votes, I think, within the next week. Whoever sits here at this time next week, I think will not be talking about health care as a proposal, but as the law of the land.”

– Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on Fox News Sunday

One would hope!
