“Her [Ann Coulter’s] books, like her TV appearances, consist of nonstop rabid frothing. Her first, High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton, put her on the radar as an up-and-coming liar.”
– Sen. Al Franken, in his book Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.
Franken is a member of the Senate Energy Committee who has spoken out against the opening of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge 1002 area for oil exploration, until every drop of oil from existing leases in Alaska have already been pumped. His amendment to require that condition failed in the committee’s markup process on Wednesday.
