Well crimenintlies, Uncle Jack! I knew the woman had barnacles on her brain, but I didn't know she had 'em there, too.

I've sort of followed this short-skirted, long-haired blonde entity's career with the kind of fascination I might have for a killer shark—sleek and beautiful as it moves through the water like a torpedo, a dedicated killing-machine that is so horrifyingly perfect at what it does—attacking, rending, and tearing. But I truly amazed at how often she can surprise me with the level of her viciousness and brutality. No species of shark I can think, not even the dreaded Great White, can match that!

Lucrezia Borgia was actually a fairly nice woman, used as a helpless pawn by her father, Pope Alexander VI and her brother Cesare. But those who hated the Borgia family (with good reason) slandered her horribly. She was actually faithful to her husbands until they were assassinated (presumably by Cesare) so she could be married off to someone else the Borgias wanted an alliance with. When finally married to Alfonso d"Este, whom Cesare couldn't get to, she became a patron of the Arts, sponsoring many painters and musicians. But when it comes to sheer viciousness, the reputation that some less than diligent historians have unjustly saddled Lucrezia Borgia with pale by the reality of Ann Coulter.
