I never wanted to hear "eating out" anywhere near "Ann Coulter", so, um, damn you.

"...Jacobs was understandably floored to see none other than Ann Coulter, known for her Falwell-praising gay hate, her "faggot" slurs, and her hobnobbing with "ex-gay porn star" Marines, feeding her piehole among WeHo's finest."*

He was vegetarian. Unless you're demanding rabbinical supervision of wine production.

No, we do, but we handle it in shifts, so one person gets a break while others scold.

How many times did that article mention she was spending money that will go into the coffers of the owner?
posted by phyrewerx at 12:08 PM on October 29, 2007


Who gives a shit? I mean, seriously. I've seen this reported elsewhere. The blogger writes: "Why would she spend her hard earned gay-bashing royalties to enrich Jeffrey Sanker and otherwise support gay-owned businesses?"

Why? Because idiots like you will give her press, that's why. The manager let her stay and eat. If the manager hadn't, she'd have something more to bitch about on television and how the "supposedly tolerant faggots refused to dine with me." Now she'll just say the same thing about the bloggers.

Does the blogger really think he one-upped her with that stupid piece?

Ignore her and she will go away.
posted by dobbs at 12:10 PM on October 29, 2007


Clearly, she's just a hypocrite, saying outrageous, inflammatory, dangerous, un-Christian words...

Those aren't the adjective's I'd choose for Coulter's brand of tripe. Outrageous, sure. Inflammatory, no doubt. Dangerous? I suppose so, but that's her right.

un-Christian? In what way is what Coulter says un-Christian?

He feels so strongly that he says if he were the manager he'd have thrown her out. So why didn't he walk out of the restaurant when the manager didn't?

Rather than the mock (I hope) outrage, why not just take some pictures and point out her hypocrisy (if you must do something, and I doubt I'd have been able to resist).
posted by DU at 12:18 PM on October 29, 2007


Well she and her ilk are very much examples of the banality of evil. There's some question of whether she really is so completely thoughtless but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if this sort of non-thinking embarrassment is a dear old habit of hers. I'm sure she's got all sorts of silly little justifications for resolving her off-air life with her extremely anti-liberal views in public. Anyways it's difficult to engage this sort of evil on a purely intellectual level but it's nice to see such a thing can't stand contact with real human beings.

Her eating at this restaurant is no greater an act of hypocrisy than her going to a musical. Musicals are, after are, a collusion between homosexuals and Jews to make old people happy.

I was therefore shocked that when we tried to engage her in conversation, she became embarrassed, turned away, nestling her head inside her long, blond hair, much as would an embarrassed school girl caught stealing the answers to an exam....Her response (physically, because she would not speak): "I am too embarrassed to talk to you." Had we been able to see her high cheek bones, then averted and clutched in her hands to hide her shame, we'd have seen a red-faced hypocrite, caught living a lie. Think Britney Spears or Paris Hilton or others who make money simply for being famous and then have no clue how to respond when they are caught lying.

Wow, I haven't seen writing that powerful since middle school!

So you were "shocked" when you tried to walk up to a stranger (you hate) to "engage her in conversation" (about the weather? the fires?) and she refused to talk to you? And you couldn't see her, and she didn't talk, but you know what her "response" to your intrusion was, and know that she was "hiding her shame"? And if you could have seen her, you know her face would have been red?

Ann Coulter is a joke of a human being. But seeing her in a restaurant is not a license to pen an overwrought column.

I find Ann Coulter kinda hot. It has to be some kind of weird "I can subvert/convert her" kind of thing; somehow, someway, the idea of seducing her seems right. This disturbs me.

Well, maybe the fact that she's hideously evil. I mean that in all seriousness. Christianity kind of frowns on that.

hydrophonic: after some googling, it seems that the consensus is that while he was not strict about it, Hitler avoided meat. I liked this:
Mainstream historians don't refute Berry's assertion that Hitler didn't meet contemporary vegetarian standards, but they do have trouble finding meaning in it. John Lukacs, author of Hitler of History, says that the German leader was "mostly a vegetarian," especially after 1938, when Hitler began to worry that his health was failing. That fact is useful in understanding Hitler's psychology before WWII and may explain why he went to war so soon after securing peaceful annexations from Chamberlain and others. But whether he was a strict vegetarian or not doesn't register with Lukacs. "What difference does it make? Hitler never cared much for food," he says, "Except he liked sweets. He had a weakness for creamy cakes, not for chocolates, Viennese creamy cakes. He had pastry cooks make him sweets until the end of his life, even in the bunker."
Man, I wish that was in Downfall. The more you know.

As piratebowling noted above, it depends on what type of Christianity you subscribe to. Plenty of brands of Christianity are right in step with the stuff that Coulter spews.

It's a minor point, and off-topic. But calling Coulter un-Christian is like calling her inhuman -- no, in fact both humanity and Christianity do encompass filth like her.

I'm no fan of Anne Coulter, but it always bothers me when people condemn her homophobia while tarring her with the she's-a-man-amirite transgender brush.

Something about her brings out the worst in everyone, liberal and conservative.

Ignore her and she will go away.

The problem is that if we ignore her, there are plenty of other folks who won't.

So, I think the more apt formulation would be "ignore her and if you're lucky, you can forget she exists (while she's still out there screaming 'LOOK AT ME!!! LOOK AT ME!!!' at the top of her starvation- and cigarette-weakened lungs."

No, not believing it makes it much worse.

Yeah, she's a lightening rod of human hatred. Her media spin feeds on every hatred we have a name for. The fact that she's so successful at bringing out such vitriol in people of all political stripes is the most deeply troubling part of all. It doesn't take a lot of digging to find the homophobia and sexism in people who would buy her books and believe their contents. That's easy. It's trickier work to find those things people who self-identify as social progressives.

Of course it is. Overwrought columns are what made America great. Ann's not the only one who gets to be overwrought.

I liked the phrase "Her sturdy female minder ..." That picture, though ... that's unfortunate. She really looks like she should stop injecting her own urine.

I don't know, Pope Guilty. The only thing she seems to be good at is getting liberals riled up. But if you want to pretend that getting yourself into a froth over this bimbo is actually of any consequence, be my guest, but it's wasted energy.
