Quick follow-ups (Bachmann Civics Challenge, Common/O’Reilly/Stewart)

The girl who challenged Michelle Bachmann to a debate is getting the standard mob treatment. [original post]

Ann Myers challenged the tea party favorite in a letter dated April 29. After it started getting media attention last weekend, commenters on tea party websites have threatened to publish her home address and some have threatened violence.

The 16-year-old from Cherry Hill says several commenters have called her a “whore.”

Her father, Wayne, says he’s concerned for his daughter’s safety.

Alas, it looks like this is all for naught, as Bachmann has decided to keep her peculiar take on American history and civics to herself.

Bachmann’s office told The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill that it won’t respond to the debate challenge.

The Common Nontroversy [original post] also reached a fitting ridiculous conclusion with Jon Stewart exposing Bill O’Reilly for the ignorant hate he represents.  In case you think there’s some sort of equal exchange of valid opinions going on here, make sure to see what Bill’s fans thought of the back and forth.  These are the poll results from his own page…

That 21% are the same folks who still though Bush was awesome in 2008.
