Does Smithers read the New Republic?

Good for Marty. If Ann Coulter called National Reviews staff "Girlie Men" what do you call the New Republic's? (mmm urge to make McGreevy joke growing)
I saw Ann & Peter Beinhart debating on CSPAN . She was challenged to defend her"bomb their countries, kill their leaders, convert them to christianity" crack (er position). She noted that christians don't seem to be cutting people's heads off. Of course, the crusades were then brought up. I know Ann likes to fight (allah bless her stone heart) but shouldn't she mention how the church has developed institutions and authority separate from the government. This is a important contribution to western civilisation that stands in contrast to other religions of peace.
