I've seen some misplaced comparisons before, but this George Will column is absurd.

There are the tantrums -- sometimes both theatrical and perfunctory -- of talking heads on television or commentators writing in vitriol (Paul Krugman's incessant contempt, Ann Coulter's equally constant loathing).

Please. As hilzoy put it, "I can't wait to see what Krugman quotes Will thinks are even remotely comparable to such highlights of the Coulter oeuvre as: 'My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building', or 'We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee.'"

Let's see, Krugman is a respected economist at Princeton. Coulter is a hateful circus clown. Will sees a similarity?
