Global warming and Ann Coulter have been regular residents of the weekly "Top Ten." So when Ann Coulter writes a column about global warming, what do you get? #1 See what else Townhall.com readers were talking about during the week that was -- March 18-24,2007

#10. Why Fred Thompson Should Run
by Mona Charen
The current Republican field is like a smorgasbord at Denny's -- lots of OK choices, but nothing to get the heart racing. That's why the potential candidacy of former Sen. Fred Thompson is creating a palpable stir.

#9. Turning up the Heat on Gore
by Jonah Goldberg
As fate would have it, the same week Al Gore was testifying before Congress, I was doing a little testifying myself. Admittedly, there were a tad fewer paparazzi in the Madison, Wis., classroom where I was giving a talk on global warming (sponsored by Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow, or CFACT). The debate in Washington offered some familiar echoes.

#8. The Witch Hunt Against Gun Owners


by Michelle Malkin
"The Second Amendment," Charlton Heston used to say, "is America's first freedom." The Second secures the rest. It's a message narcissistic journalists need to hear again.

#7. '300' Fact or Fiction?
by Victor Davis Hanson
Crowds are flocking to see the film "300" about the ancient Spartans' last stand at the pass at Thermopylae against an invading Persian army. Yet many critics, in panning "300," have alleged that the film is essentially historically inaccurate. Are they right?

#6. John Edwards' Death by Bangs
by Kathleen Parker
The video, set to the song ``I Feel Pretty,'' has been airing on television, posted on YouTube and circulating on the Internet the past few days with potentially devastating effect for the man unflatteringly referred to as the ``Breck Girl.'' It also illustrates the enormous power of YouTube in politics forevermore.

#5. Will The Seahawk See the Pitfalls of Libel?
by Mike Adams
Yesterday afternoon, I spoke with a writer for the UNCW Seahawk student newspaper. He was interested in doing an article on my recent column, "How to Bomb a Gay Bath House" – a satirical column whose point was that in America political correctness causes people to pay more attention to imaginary threats against minorities than the real threats Muslim extremists pose to all Americans.

#4. Random Thoughts
by Thomas Sowell
One of the many fashionable excuses of our time is that some words or actions were "taken out of context." Those who say this seldom, if ever, bother to say what these words or actions mean when taken in context.

#3. The Essence of Liberalism: Embracing Life's Losers
by Michael Medved
What constitutes the essence of modern liberalism? Conservatives will return to decisive victories only if we come to terms with liberalism’s visceral appeal. The best way to overcome our ideological adversaries is to understand their approach to major issues.

#2. It could never happen in America
by Mike Adams
Karlo Kraljev of the European Human Rights Panel is spitting mad. And it’s not because his spell-checker is still broken. It’s because he thought “My Apology to the European Human Rights Panel” was a satire. He claims that the article was satire because it claims that another article (“How to Bomb a Gay Bath House”) was satire, which is a claim he still refuses to accept.

#1. The coming ass age
by Ann Coulter
No matter how much liberals try to dress up their nutty superstitions about global warming as "science," which only six-fingered lunatics could doubt, scratch a global warming "scientist" and you get a religious fanatic.
