La Coulter on being backstage with what’s left of the Grateful Dead:
It was one of the greatest nights of my life. I was like an Orthodox Jew meeting Moses. Bobby is of course every girl’s lifelong crush and he’s every bit as cool and as wonderful as I could hope he could be….It was one of the greatest nights of my life.
People are often incorrectly surprised that there are a lot of conservative dead heads. I’d mentioned that in an interview, and actually on the ‘Tonight Show,’ that one of my friends — who was a fellow Deadhead — would get up in the morning, smoke a bowl, turn on Rush Limbaugh, and start making his candles for ‘Grateful Dead’ merchandising.
Us? We prefer to take Oxycontin before listening to Rush (the man and the band). And, for that matter, before watching the video of the FDA Chorus and International Underwater Submarine Band singing its “Centennial Anthem.” And, well, OK, we just take Oxycontin all the time. After all, it’s the crack cocaine of prescription drugs. Or is it the Internet gambling of painkillers?
