Well, you have a point in your opening statement, and I am amenable to good argument. I do think that there is a need for the establishment types to have a "coming to Jesus" moment, and to realize that the Libertarian party might very well be the bitter medicine to take down. The Republican party needs to "Right" its course, having veered off for far too long. Bold color differences.
There are many sorts of so-called Libertarians, ranging from the Ron Paul type, which I consider myself, to the rabble-rousing, Anarcho-Capitalist types, and on down, to what I would loosely call "Left Libertarians", who are really lefties, with all of the social and cultural trappings of the Liberal, but with a keen animus towards Wall Street, the Fed, investment banks, and such. And there are many gradations in between I would say, however, that as long as Conservative types keep referring to, and treating, Libertarianism as that ugly, red-headed Step-Child, there will be no way of reconciliation. The fact is is that Libertarians, in the main, are very much amenable to much of Conservatism's values and principles. However, that said, Coulter certainly is not a good will ambassador to the Conservative cause, because, essentially she is a Republican first, and a Conservative second. And this is not a distinction without a difference.

Although I do not believe that an evil undoes an evil (yes, skinning him alive would not redress any wrongs), I am left scratching my head on his getting a pass on his terrorist past.

There are a lot of what I call "left-Libertarian", which means very socially liberal, and generally, but not "thoroughly", fiscally conservative. However, given the variety of libertarian out there (hell, Bill Maher calls himself a libertarian!), there is little doubt, IMHO, that not no two libertarians are the same. However, that said, I do not agree wholeheartedly with Coulter's take on Libertarianism.

What I want to know is why Mother Theresa never accepted medical technologies to many of those in her care, when it could have saved lives? Was it that she only accepted god's help? Not trying to go Bill Maher on you, but it is rather peculiar of a woman who cared for the sick and infirm.
Well, to be fair, Jesse has had plenty of help keeping many a black American marginalized.
There's wisdom in that there quote. The term "free from state meddling for life", would also be apt.
I never thought that legalizing marijuana equalled freedom. Instead, as this article should strongly suggest, is that when the state is in control of the who, when and where, and why, there is even more control of the individual and his right to put into his mouth what he or she has a natural right to. Of course, the economics of the war on drugs, and of "medical" cannabis proponents, would strongly disagree.

I would agree, that in spite of his politics, Stewart is funny and talented. What Conservatism would have if he were to come to his senses.
