Bliss322, Ryvar wasn't saying it was a doublepost, but that Coulter is yesterday's news.

Which may be the case, but we can still shudder at the thought of all the twisted Republigeeks stripping their Coulter dolls like they did their little sisters' Barbies.

Yeah right. Poor Ann Coulter: she's blonde, slim, well-read, successful and conservative!!!
Some of you people are so pathetically enslaved by envy and resentment that you sound like certified lunatics sometimes. I wonder how you would react if anyone cared to make Michael Moore or Susan Sontag dolls.

"Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like Liberals do. They don't have the energy. If they had that much energy, they'd have indoor plumbing by now."

You know Vidiot, I wouldn't want to derail an otherwise harmless, sour grapes thread, but perhaps will enlighten us all presently in your own blog with facts regarding Ann Coulter's "ignorance". Since you're successful and well-read, I'm sure it will be an easy task for you.

Oh, I would cream in my little liberal pants! Or, uh, not. I would belittle them, of course. And come on, defending Ann Coulter? Really? I wasn't aware anyone was still doing that.

Just for kicks, read these two Spinsanity pieces, and this piece in the Columbia Journalism Review.
posted by monju_bosatsu at 2:00 PM on December 29, 2003


Okay. A brief and partial Fisking of this column produces the following unsourced allegations:

--aging liberals view sodomy with a chubby intern in the back office as "having fun." Really? All of them?
--It's the blue states that are constantly sending lawyers to the red states to bother everyone. Really? Do tell.
--Americans in the red states look at a place like New York City -- where, this year, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade featured a gay transvestite as Mrs. Claus -- and say, Well, I guess some people like it, but it's not for me. Well, the "gay transvestite" was Harvey Fierstein, who's currently playing a female character on Broadway. Less of a tempest in a teapot than Ms. Coulter is making of it. And all Americans in "the red states" look askance at NYC? The states that I was born in, grew up in, and lived in last all were "red states" and went for Bush in the last election. And I jumped at the chance to move to New York.

I also love how in this column, she advocates FIRST getting information from Saddam, and THEN torturing him.

You get the drift. (And on preview, what monju_bosatsu said.)

What's up with the Cute Young Republicans in the editorial pages these days?
Coulter, Kathleen Parker, and Michelle Malkin (both better writers than Coulter) seem to be in my daily paper daily.

Monju, compared to Michael Moore's outright fabrications in that Columbine documentary, I'll take Coulter anyday.
Vidiot, I won't even start with the Alexandria-like library denouncing lies told by authors from the left (not errors, mind you; not rhetoric devices and generalizations either, but deliberate lies to misguide readers), starting with Karl Marx's statistics from The Capital. Attempts have been made to discredit conservative authors (Michelet, Gibbon, James Frazer; more recently, check out the recent aldaily entry on the Bjorn Lomborg controversy) on accounts of inaccuracy and so on, but the same standards rarely apply when liberals judge liberal authors.
As to Saddam, she's only guilty of saying out loud what many people actually think. Given the opportunity, what would most Jews do with Hitler?

I am in no way defending Moore. My only point is that you don't have to choose. Moore and Coulter are each bleating nonsensical mouthpieces for the most extreme fringe on each end of the political spectrum. You can, and indeed should, reject both.

Big deal. Let me know when they come out with an inflatable Ann Coulter doll, with holes. That I would be in the market for.

But I wasn't defending authors on the left. Authors on either side can misrepresent things, as m_b says above.

And you're worried about people sounding like certified lunatics?
posted by Vidiot at 2:36 PM on December 29, 2003


Ann Coulter has carried fascism into the mainstream political debate and in effect unmasked the fascist element that has been lingering in American society for decades. The only problem is that an unmasked fascist is more likely to behave like one.

Yeah right. Poor Ann Coulter: she's blonde, slim, well-read, successful and conservative!!!

Who's expressing pity for her? Mostly people are making fun of her rather disgusting anorexia. Well read? I don't get the impression she reads at all. It seems like she mostly just spews invective.

Some of you people are so pathetically enslaved by envy and resentment that you sound like certified lunatics sometimes.

I merely prefer that people who are paid to be part of the news media to be important for their ideas and logical analysis of fact. If she weren't a fraud she'd never be caught dead having a doll.

I wonder how you would react if anyone cared to make Michael Moore or Susan Sontag dolls.

Neither Moore or Sontag take on the same role. Coulter is a news columnist and political analyst. Moore is a filmmaker. Check out Errol Morris' work if you believe Moore is perversing his medium. He's clearly not. The reports of his "fabrications" in "Columbine" are greatly exaggerated.

facts regarding Ann Coulter's "ignorance"

They have been widely and extensively documented. If you were really interested in finding them it wouldn't take you long.

You left out "sane", 111.

I'm guessing that was intentional.

Very clever.

Kudos.

What's wrong with automatically rejecting communists? Their flawed ideal of a social construct is a failed, immoral and blood-soaked lie. Show me one, and I'll reject him. Or her.

Coulter is one of the most talented, outspoken and genuinely funny columnists working today.

To say nothing of her doll, which does not, in fact, say what got her booted from the National Review, unfortunately, which is some her best. (see previous post for additional comments)

Where the hell did "communists" come into play in this discussion? I know that Coulter has been declaring McCarthy as a latter-day saint for a while now, but our particular discussion has not moved into that realm. I assume by "communist" you are referring either to individuals who follow the work of Marx and Englels, or alternatively, those who lived in or supported the USSR, Vietnamese, Cubans, etc. If you're not referring to either of these groups, then you're using it as an invective word. In that case, didn't you get the memo that we're calling pinko liberal scum "terrorists" now?

And yes, Coulter is outspoken in her attempts to stir the bucket. However, that particular talent doesn't necessarily mean she's a good journalist, only an entertaining columnist. She complains about the slanted media and uses other opinion editorials as a basis for complaint, while using petty slander to belittle individuals. Rather than speak to issues or the real politics, she reduces her work to ad hominem attacks and quickly shifts the focus of any retort.

I respect Ann Coulter in the same way I respect klerck and several other widely known trolls on the internet; her ability to have her work seen as legitimate by anyone who gives it a cursory glance amazes me. You have my respect, 111 and hama7. At least, I hope you do, for if you're not trolling, you're scaring the hell out of me.

The only Nazi that was caught and tried by Israel, Adolf Eichman, received at worst a show trial that involved Israel paying for the defense attorney of his choice, and judges who tried to be fair.
There were no allegations of torture or anything of the sort. (unless you consider hanging torture, which, you have me there...) See this book for more details

But good use of nazi germany to prove your point.

And others just despise her for saying things like 'we should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to christianity'. She's a doll, but I wonder why you support her so strongly. A little Coulter-lust on the burner perhaps? You can tell us...

Actually it's a lousy point. Of course people think these things but we use restraint, judgment and discipline to avoid doing what our base, visceral instincts tell us and instead strive for a more high minded approach.

When the kid at McDonald's fucks up my order and gives me the wrong change, I want to swear at him and call him a dumbass but I have this thing we call self-control.

It's called taking the high road. We strive to carefully and judiciously carry out government and foriegn policy, not kick everyone's ass because we can and them sand niggers had it coming anyway. That Ann Coulter is put on a pedastal for appealing to the most base eye for an eye instincts because, by golly, that's good ole Old Testament justice, lowers us all.

111: Franken does a good job of starting to address Coulter's problems in his latest book.

I've read both the better part of that and Treason. Can you say the same? Or were the "liberal lies" just too much for you and you had to quit early?
posted by namespan at 8:46 PM on December 29, 2003


I think it's clear that 111 is just showing loving Christian compassion in his defense of Coulter, following in the steps of Jesus who showed compassion for even for the whore. I respect that strength of 111's commitment to traditional Christian values by walking in the path of tolerance and righteousness.

I'm sorry, Jimbob: I forgot about 111's tolerance. Just like I forgot about Coulter's. And like I forgot about "compassionate conservatism."

And she's single-handedly lowered the level of discourse in this country!!!

I disagree with many mainstream liberals on many issues, but I think it's ridiculous to accuse liberals of treason because we don't agree. Edmund Burke must be spinning in his grave, being lumped in with people like her.
posted by me & my monkey at 7:08 AM on December 30, 2003


Especially when she decries the lack of civilized political debate.

In Slander (via Franken's new book):
Political 'debate' in this country has become insufferable. . .Instead of actual debate about ideas and issues with real consequences, the country is trapped in a political discourse that resembles professional wrestling.
