i saw ann coulter speak at loeb playhouse on the gloriously wet purdue campus tonight. she seems nice, but she was late, very late, and she only spoke for 45 minutes. i thought republicans were for responsible fiscal spending? bringing in an outside speaker for $30,001-50,000 and then having her arrive in west lafayette at least three hours late due to weather and travel problems is, i think, not a very wise use of funds. why not have indiana governor mitch daniels next time? he’d probably do it just to take his harley out for a spin on I-65.

EDIT [2.50am 18/2]: i wish she would have talked about more current events. she’s still fixated on the 2004 election and ward churchill and bill clinton. we did get brief interludes on dick cheney shooting a guy and the mohammed cartoons, but she could have done so much more. oh well.
