A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Overqualified: Minneapolis Star-Tribune columnist Nick Coleman apparently went off his medication when he wrote this rant against the Powerline bloggers. Instapundit has a roundup of links, but old axiom about having a battle of wit with an unarmed man comes to mind.

Maureen Dowd won a Pulitzer Prize. Nick Coleman is (I'm certain) a handsomely paid columnist at a major American newspaper. It's the kind of job that I would like to have someday, but how many brain cells do I have to kill off before I'm qualified for such a job? Maybe a better question, is how many brain cells need to remain alive. One? Two?

On an even more out-of-date note: In attempting to explain why Coleman may have it in for the Powerline guys, they noted this post earlier this month which recounted an e-mail exchange with a reader regarding one of Coleman's columns that alleged that Joseph and Mary were "homeless" when Christ was born.

Read the entire post, which is amusing, but sad.

While you're doing that, think to yourself, what would happen to a conservative columnist, even in a private e-mail exchange, who suggested that a reader needed to "get religion." People for the American Way and the ACLU would be all over them.
