Nancy Pelosi's trip to Syria, Rosie O'Donnell, gay conservatives and Jihadist vied for the top spot but Ann Coulter reclaimed her crown at #1 in this week's Townhall Top Ten. See what else Townhall.com readers were talking about during the week that was -- April 1-7

#10. Worry About the Right Things
by John Stossel
For the past two weeks I've written about how the media -- part of the Fear Industrial Complex -- profit by scaring us to death about things that rarely happen, like terrorism, child abductions, and shark attacks.

 

#9. Why liberals get it wrong (on nearly everything!
by Kevin McCullough
Given the chance to do what is right, liberals will consistently choose otherwise.

 

#8. How Wives Can Kill Their Marriage: Part Two
by Doug Giles
I think the world is coming to an end. I didn’t come to this conclusion simply because a lot of people actually read and like my column, but primarily because of the tons of positive emails I’m getting from former livid ladies confessing their remorse for their previous acts of husband hating.

 

#7. The 'Queen of Nice' goes nuts
by Jonah Goldberg
Renowned metallurgist Rosie O'Donnell proclaimed on TV on Thursday that Sept. 11, 2001, was a more significant date than most of us realized. It was, in her words, "the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel."

 

#6. Gen. Pelosi's gift to our enemies
by David Limbaugh
It is frankly astounding to me that people aren't making a bigger deal of the colossal impropriety of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's unauthorized trip to Syria. Where is the outrage?

 

#5. On "Outing" Gay Conservatives
by Dennis Prager
The reason given by same-sex marriage activists for "outing" conservative gays is that these people are "hypocrites" who therefore deserve to have their sexual orientation revealed to the world.

 

#4. Whitewashing Jihad in the Schools
by Michelle Malkin
Three years ago, I wrote about a mock terrorism drill at a public school district in Muskegon County, Mich. Instead of Islamic terrorists, educators substituted Christian homeschoolers. Yes, Christian homeschoolers. Here was the description of the school drill plan:

#3. The Shame of Higher Education
by Walter Williams
Many of our nation's colleges and universities have become cesspools of indoctrination, intolerance, academic dishonesty and the new racism.

#2. Playing With Fire
by Thomas Sowell
Congressman Tom Lantos, who is a member of the delegation that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading to Syria, put the mission clearly when he said: "We have an alternative Democratic foreign policy." Democrats can have any foreign policy they want -- if and when they are elected to the White House.

#1. If at First You Don't Appease -- Cry, Cry Again
by Ann Coulter
If you want a shorter rebuilding process, then we're going to have to wage less humane wars. The enemy -- as well as innocent civilians -- must be bombed into quivering terror. Otherwise, we displace aggression but don't destroy it.
