Barbara Coe Trashes Hugh Hewitt, Says Barack Obama Owns Him!

My God, I think this might be the first time I've ever agreed with Barbara Coe on ANYTHING: she, like I, thinks local conservative yakmouth, Hugh Hewitt is a gas bag!

Coe is incensed that Hewitt—in one of the few times I've agreed with him—recently trashed Tom Tancredo, the former Colorado congressman who's now running for governor as a third-party candidate. I don't listen much to Hewitt anymore, as it's a loop of anti-Obama, pro-gay discrimination nonsense, so—in probably the first time I've ever done this—I'll take Coe at her word instead of searching through hours of stultifying Hewitt transcripts.

Of course, Coe being Coe, even her truths come filled with lies.

"What else can be expected from a proven anti-American, pro-illegal alien advocate, spewing his boring meaningless illiterate rhetoric day after day," Coe wrote in an August 13 email to her minions. "We can only wonder if he is also on Obama's 'bought & paid for" payroll?'"

Points of order: Hewitt hates Obama as much as Coe hates Mexicans. Hewitt used to be somewhat sympathetic to illegals, but spent last week in Arizona, happily spending money in the Hate State and supporting SB1070. The only talk-show host who wraps himself in the patriotic, Christian mantle more than Baby Hughie is Sean Hannity. When one criticizes someone's speech, "illiterate" is the wrong word; it's "unintelligible."

Other than that, Coe is right! And we salute her...a bit.
