I can’t help myself: Ann Coulter cracks me up. Ann’s American gigolo piece on John Kerry (who has twice married exceptionally rich women) had me in stitches. “Kerry sees a room full of wealthy widows as a ‘target-rich environment,” Coulter wrote. His first wife was Julia Thorne, whose family fortune was said to be in the oh about $300 million range. “She got depressed, so he promptly left her and was seen catting around with Hollywood starlets, mostly while the cad was still married.”

Next, in his career of “stalking lonely heiresses,” Kerry found and married Theresa Heinz, whose fortune from her late husband Senator John Heinz of the ketchup family was in the oh about $700 million range. “If they Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts, couldn’t they nominate someone who hasn’t been a poodle to rich women for the past 33 years?”

Ann is a mistress of the much-maligned but oh-so-wonderful ad hominem attack. Who was it who said that ad hominem is God’s way of looking at us?
