Really, you can't make this stuff up. Only in Greater Wingnuttia, such as Bill O'Reilly's show last night, talking about that web-only SNL skit lampooning Ann Coulter. Amanda Carpenter has her pearls twisted into a knot:

Bill O'Reilly: We have to be fair to Saturday Night Live. They lampoon Barack Obama and other people on the left. They do. But this crossed the line for you, Amanda, when it got into specifically what?

Amanda Carpenter: Yeah, specifically, when they make her out to be this alien, unhuman-like figure. There are jokes about her being only a husk of a person, and you know, how she's going to become a man-serpent. They do it to conservative women. It is a theme. They make them seem like they're not human. And of course, in Ann Coulter's case, they take it to a whole nother level.

Um, Amanda? SNL didn't create Coulter's image as an alien, unhuman-like figure. Her own words did that.
