Coulter seems to be advocating the murder of Democratic Rep. Jack Murtha, Tim Grieve notes on Salon.
As Editor and Publisher reports, Coulter, in an e-mail exchange with the editor of a conservative site, was asked to free-associate with the names of several prominent Democrats. "When she got to Murtha, Coulter wrote: 'The reason soldiers invented "fragging"' [the killing of an officer by one of his own soldiers]."

"Basic research may seem very expensive. I am a well-paid scientist. My hourly wage is equal to that of a plumber, but sometimes my research remains barren of results for weeks, months or years and my conscience begins to bother me for wasting the taxpayer's money. But in reviewing my life's work, I have to think that the expense was not wasted. Basic research, to which we owe everything, is relatively very cheap when compared with other outlays of modern society. The other day I made a rough calculation which led me to the conclusion that if one were to add up all the money ever spent by man on basic research, one would find it to be just about equal to the money spent by the Pentagon this past year."--Albert Szent-Györgyi, Nobel-laureate physiologist, 1971.
