The walking definition of bat-shit crazy

If you have some time, you owe it to yourself to read this Salon piece about Rachel Marsden. Marsden is a 31-year old attractive-yet-hardly-babealicious co-host of something called Red Eye, a late-night show on FPC (Fox Propaganda Channel) that sounds very Crossfire meets The Man Show in Wayne Campbell's basement (party on Hannity, party on O'Reilly).
Salon describes her in the article's title as "Ann Coulter 2.0". Here are some interesting tidbits from the article:
  1. She has been accused of stalking at least four different people, one of which ended up successfully pressing charges that led to a conviction (she claimed one of the other three had raped her, though the evidence did not support those charges).
  2. Her written work is laced with diatribes concerning the size of Hillary's chest and Al Gore's stomach.
  3. She was fired from a political aide position for working under a pseudonym.
  4. Her motto is "50% of men want to sleep with me, the other 50% want to kill me"
  5. She has accused Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of serving up "a triple scoop of crazy, sprinkled with crazy, and topped off with warm crazy sauce." - to which I would say, a) might not be that far off the mark at times, b) hypocritical, and c)takes one to know one.

Like it or not, she's a rising star within the Fox world (which should tell you something about their standards), so we'd better get ready for her. I don't like making personal attacks on people in situations like this, but when someone takes the amount of cheap shots that she does, she deserves to be taken to task on her own behavior. And the fact is, this woman shouldn't be anywhere near a television camera or a newspaper. She probably needs mental help (and I mean that in all seriousness), but at the very least she should be accorded no more credibility than Coulter, and at the rate she's going her fall from grace will hopefully come sooner than Annie's.

And with that, I now expect to receive 400 e-mails from Ms. Marsden in the next 20 minutes.
