(Michael's head line made me laugh. BREAKING NEWS! THERE WILL BE NO ELECTRICITY IF OBAMA IS ELECTED! Sean Hannity)

Usually Coulter would have been littering our air waves for weeks now, but she has just suddenly appeared. C&Ler Kevin emails:

In eight separate appearances on the FOX News Channel in 2004, Caddell -- identified as a "FOX News contributor," "Democratic strategist," "Democratic pollster," or "former Democratic strategist" -- appeared opposite Republican pundits. But on almost every occasion, he issued harsh attacks on Senator John Kerry and other on
