God Bless You, Mrs. Bowers

Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best ChristianTM, reviews Ann Coulter's latest book. The review brought tears of joy and gratitude to my eyes. A taste:

Yes, [Ann Coulter] directs an anger that shirks all management on women whose husbands were murdered on 9/11. Apparently, in Miss Coulter's religion, the meek may inherit the Earth, but not before she's had a shot at making them cry first.... Frankly, I think she is simply exhibiting a fierce territoriality on behalf of herself and other Republicans who have used 9/11 to win elections and sell books. [...] But in her mercantile zeal to say what sells, Miss Coulter endeavors to create an image that has apparently had a nasty falling out with reality, leaving them no longer on speaking terms.
If Jeremiah could read Mrs. Bowers, he would rend his robes in envy.
Oh, my Lord, that is priceless.
Although my cultural knowledge ends somewhere in the 19th century (Baby Jane Hudson?)... well, it's hysterical.
I guessed (correctly, for a change) that it's a reference to the Bette Davis film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.
You're right. But I find myself regularly embarrassed by having to consult an encyclopedia to get the punchlines.
