Recently I was doing what the SomethingAwful boss, Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka, orders all his employees to do: I was artificially driving up click-through rate on our ads by clicking them over and over again using three computers, five automated programs, and six hands. I had been at it for several hours, and was about to call it a night, when one particular ad caught my eye.
The ad was for a website called The Conservative Bookclub. It's a bookclub, but for conservative people. They have an entire section of their website just for Ann Coulter books. They also have an entire section devoted to a series of books called "The Politically Incorrect Guides", and when I began to look through those, I realized I had stumbled on something big.
Each guide covers an important world topic, and provides a reasoned, logical opinion on that topic. For instance:

Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
