I know I used to enjoy Doctor Who, but now I feel like I never know what the hell is going on. Has the show gotten more convoluted than ever, or have I gotten too thick to follow it? Or do I just miss David Tennant's wiry weirdness so much that I've lost interest?

Treats

Conservative lunatic Ann Coulter had this to say today on CNN:

"It's hard to take treats away from people...yes, it's very hard to take the treats away once you start giving them away."

The "treats" she's referring to are Social Security and Medicare, two of the only existing social programs in the United States that allow elderly people to have guaranteed income and access to medical care. Keeping elderly people out of poverty and in some semblance of good health are "treats."

What in God's name is wrong with these people? And more importantly, why the fuck does an outrageous, offensive, inhuman comment like this go unchallenged by the show's host, Fareed Zakaria? He only asked her if it would "work." Why didn't he ask her what sort of human being thinks that such undeniable necessities are mere "treats?"
