Ann Coulter: Unplugged and Unhinged

By June 10, 2006

Follow me on:

She's been called everything from a loudmouth ignoramus to a right-wing telebimbo to a shrieking banshee. Ann Coulter proved this week that she's all those things and more when she spewed her bile at 9/11 widows who have been critical of the Bush administration. Appearing on the Today Show, Coulter defended the slander contained in her new book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, in which she writes:

"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."
Attacking four outspoken widows whom she dubs "The Witches of East Brunswick," Coulter also writes:

"By the way, how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy."
Needless to say, Coulter has been getting crucified by her godless critics:

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann: "Honestly, if you were Ann Coulter's attorney at a sanity hearing, where could you possibly start?" (Watch video clip)

David Letterman: "Here's what we know about Ann Coulter. She's blonde, she's single, and well, maybe someone will set her up with O.J."

Letterman: "Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was the world's most unhinged lunatic. He's now dead. So that moves Ann Coulter up to first place."

Jay Leno: "Donald Rumsfeld said Al-Zarqawi was mean, vicious and hateful. So you know what that means? Ann Coulter could be next."

Leno: "Yesterday was 666. ... And the devil did not show up yesterday, unless of course you're a Democrat watching Ann Coulter on the Today Show."

I can see why Ann Coulter isn’t married. Two seconds of listening to her voice and a guy can see himself being handcuffed and brought up on domestic violence charges.

Coulter, the quintessential mouthpiece of the right wing party, oughta shut up or be shut up if the Republicans ever hope to regain their dignity (or common sense) within their own party base. I swear, if she were in the mid-east, she’d be walking the streets with AK-47′s and wearing bullet filled bandoleros across her chest. She would shoot first and never look back or ask questions. I doubt she even has the talent or conviction to be a suicide bomber. This woman’s mouth is used as a weapon, but in the end, her best victim will be herself.

I’ve read all her books and saw her on Leno the other night. Even Carlin was enjoying himself. Now, if you can all get off your high horses and turn around and look at your own party? Byrd was a KKK LEADER, Biden made a stupid comment in the last 2 days about walking into a convenience store or dunkin donuts and hearing nothing but Indian accents. Howard Dean any time he opens his mouth, or Hillary or Chuck Schumer. She’s a Constitutional atty, well-spoken, good writer, thinks very fast on her feet…geez, get over it and admit, she can be pretty damned funny. Bill Maher liked her til she dumped him. The FEW lines about the 9/11 widows referred specifically to 4 or 5 of them who have turned their loss into a martyrdom and the Democratic party has acted as if these women have the superior moral ground. Sorry. There are several hundred other 9/11 widows and family members and you do not see them paraded in front of the media anytime the Dems want to use 9/11 as a political weapon. Those families have managed to move on with their lives and I have nothing but the utmost respect for them. Lisa Beamer is an outstanding example of the 9/11 widows. She has conducted herself with grace and dignity through the worst thing that will ever happen to her. I wish her the best and for her children. Their mother is a great lady…and the 9/11 widows are not ladies. Period.

Thank you, Susan for setting the record straight, or almost entirely straight, and I am especially pleased that you mentioned Lisa Beamer and the character she has displayed after her loss on September 11. It is so absurd to compare the Jersey Girls, now as Ann has pronounced them, the Witches of East Brunswick, with someone like Lisa Beamer, who has so much class that just her example condemns these vicious harpies as trash. Additionally, her late husband, Todd, is recognized as a American hero who led the struggle against the terrorists on United Flight 93. Also, Ann Coulter has been thanked by many widows for distinguishing them from these vicious women, who Ann does have a full right to criticize. These harpies lash out at Coulter, but don’t say anything when Ward Churchill calls people like their husbands “little Eichmanns” for no apparent reason. Is that right?

The liberals fawned over these brutes big time and will do it again when Breitweiser goes on her book-marketing crusade shortly, who is not only enjoying her celebrity status rather more pompously and arrogantly than ever, but smearing Ann Coulter will most certainly be an integral part of her campaign (as if she hasn’t already done so in her comments and the book!!!).

Ann Coulter is an intellectual lightning rod and sharpshooter who is intellectually in a league of her own compared to every liberal and conservative writer, politician and talking-head. She is so quick liberals will either be dead by one of her arguments or sputtering in rage before they even know what hit them and so all they can do is viciously smear her, particularly David Letterman and Keith Olbermann. Jay Leno stoops to this level, even with having Ann on the program! Don’t ask me to watch their programming ever again after their despicable treatment of her, unless they invite A.C. back so she could spank their butts again.

Come on, Ann is hilarious, and liberals have absolutely no sense of humor and always misrepresent what she says. To Edward Ayres’ supposition of if Coulter was married the husband would be arrested and charged with domestic violence, the husband would obviously be a liberal. Even if she never marries, there are enough people out there who hate Ann Coulter so much they would do much worse than domestic violence to her, for many liberal bloggers have expressed the desire to rape or kill her and wish all sorts of evil on her. And for what? At least she isn’t a vicious harpie like Kristen Breitweiser and her rat-pack bunch. I mean those girls have never been rejected for any magazine or tabloid, whereas Ann was rejected for years before finally landing someone who would publish her.

What needs to happen is people to rise up and tell the networks to stop horribly smearing Miss Coulter the way they always do and to quit crying hysterically over someone who has the guts to tell the truth.

Liberalism is a mental disorder – it may not be an exact quote by Rush Limbaugh, but the statement points out the obvious, to those who have the brain capacity to recognize beyond the words. -RM

Finally im glad to see someone defend Anne against the same old rabid attacks liberals who never even read her consistantly rush at her with. Most clips on youtube and other sites are first taken out of context then they attack her for things shes written in satire and sarcasm as her honest straight forward opinion. Anne makes a lot of good points using sarcasm, but unless you include the subject the sarcasm is intended for you cant possibly understand her extreem statements. Anne makes extreeme statements that sound ridiculous simply to illustrate the absurd ideas of the democratic politicians. Taking people out of context is not only an ld liberal trick but a trick going far back in history always used to supress and misinform people. Anne is not for everyone, i dare say you have to be a bit above average intelligence to understand sarcasm and satire in a functional application. Anne typically does not clarify “that was for dramatic effect” after she makes a point so her readers have to be intelligent enough to know the difference.
