article imageOp-Ed: Ann Coulter’s blonde, 'glowing' and in the dark moment

By Lynn Herrmann     Apr 19, 2011 in Politics
Washington - Ann Coulter, the US authority on inanity, states the people near the Daiichi nuclear plant have nothing to worry about, and because of their exposure to high levels of radiation, according to her, are “much less likely” to be inflicted with cancer.
In her assessment of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster that has devastated the Fukushima region in northeastern Japan, Coulter said
the only good news is that anyone exposed to excess radiation from the nuclear power plants is now probably much less likely to get cancer.
I’ll take mine in a garden-fresh salad, thank you.
Just days after the Fukushima Daiichi disaster began last month, America’s mouthpiece on all things desiring to glow in the dark posted a piece on Fox Nation called A Glowing Report on Radiation. In the Coulter report, she states “media hysteria” over the last 20 years, presumably including the eight years of the Bush the junior fiasco, was spent in an attempt
to convince Americans that radiation at any dose is bad.
Dr. Coulter goes on to state that
There is, however, burgeoning evidence that excess radiation operates as a sort of cancer vaccine.
Although she was unable to provide one becquerel of that “burgeoning evidence,” Coulter then cites the New York Times, presumably immune to her aforementioned media hysteria, in a 2001 science section noting there are those who think radiation is good for you.
“They theorize,” the Times said, that “these doses protect against cancer by activating cells’ natural defense mechanisms,” according to Coulter.
Coulter’s pronouncement comes at a time when the US nuclear industry has come under intense scrutiny, thanks to the environmental destruction currently being caused by Daiichi. The owners of Vermont Yankee have filed a federal lawsuit against the state of Vermont as both parties have failed to reach an agreement on extending the life of the aging 39-year-old nuclear facility.
New cables published by Wikileaks reveal the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission role in promoting nuclear regulations across the planet has put it in a favorable position to influence foreign government officials as they make decisions on their own nuclear futures. This, of course, would lead to a conflict of interest, particularly as Westinghouse and other domestic manufacturers stand to reap untold billions of dollars.
There are no reports to verify Coulter’s acceptance as spokeswoman, American style, for the beleaguered owner of the crippled Daiichi plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co., currently in a month-long attempt to relocate 10,000 tons of highly radioactive water.
