I realize that Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson aren’t exactly prime sources for thoughtful, articulate political dialogue. However, this collection of various Fox News blurbs is absolutely mindblowing in its smugness, vitriol, and just plain ol’ meanness (even if said tongue in cheek, which I find rather hard to believe). Listening to these pundits, you’d assume that Canadians are the mentally challenged offspring of Hitler and the Antichrist, and that their national sport was clubbing baby seals.

How could such ill-mannered sentiment become accepted as legitimate political discourse?
