And did they reward my dedication? Hell no! They've even taken to sending me old talking points, just so they can laugh amongst themselves when my column shows up helplessly outdated. Well I'm not taking it, anymore. There's a new Ann in town, and I am going to write what I want when I want to.
Such as the fact that sometimes conservatives get things wrong. Earth to The Committee - you're not infallible! If you would just admit your mistakes once in a while, maybe more people would respect you. I can see I'm going to have to take the lead here.
For example: Remember Terry Schiavo? I was dead wrong about that issue. Yes I was! I went back to look at some of my earlier columns, and I must have been on drugs or something. Take this piece that I wrote back in November 2003. (Oh, I promise you're going to laugh your ass off at this one. Just call me a big silly).
Wow, was I ever off base with that one! Truth is, the girl's brain was deader than a doornail! You know, I really thought Terri's eyes were following that balloon, but when I found out that the vision centers of her brain had long since deteriorated away, I almost bust a gut. God, what a doofus I can be!
Okay, I'll admit it. W.W.C.V.B.D. That's funny, very, very funny. And Michael Schiavo was pretty easy to lampoon, what with that big oh-so-serious mug, and all that caring nonsense. (Wasn't he some kind of nurse?) But irregardless, I think that he probably had enough going on in his personal life that he didn't need me to be opening my fat mouth. God, I am such a blonde. So, sorry Mike! I was wrong! Have a nice life!
