People who Piss Me Off: Ann Coulter

I can honestly say that I would have no problem at all with her... If she didn't talk, or write, or appear in public. People from any area of the political spectrum should have no problem at all with saying that, physically, she's a very beautiful woman and could easily have been a model, with those long legs, movie star face, and other physical attributes. However, behind that beautiful face lies one of the most vicious, malignant minds in modern political discourse. The only reasons people know her name are because she was on Paula Jones' legal offense team and a quirk of genetics. Read or listen to what she has to say, and she will scare the hell out of you. True, she's no Matt Hale, but she makes even Bill O'Reilly seem warm and cuddly. (And isn't THAT a lovely mental image given his settlement of a sexual harassment lawsuit stemming from unwanted attempted phone sex with one of his producers.) But I digress. Below are some of her scarier quotes.

"The portrayal of Senator Joe McCarthy as a wild-eyed demagogue destroying innocent lives is sheer liberal hobgoblinism. Liberals weren't cowering in fear during the McCarthy era. They were systematically undermining the nation's ability to defend itself while waging a bellicose campaign of lies to blacken McCarthy's name. Everything you think you know about McCarthy is a hegemonic lie. Liberals denounced McCarthy because they were afraid of getting caught, so they fought back like animals to hide their own collaboration with a regime as evil as the Nazis." -- Ann Coulter, P. 10, Treason

"Whether they are defending the Soviet Union or bleating for Saddam Hussein, liberals are always against America. They are either traitors or idiots, and on the matter of America's self-preservation, the difference is irrelevant." -- Ann Coulter, P. 16 Treason

"McCarthy was a popularizer, a brawler. Republican elitists abhor demagogic appeals to working-class Democrats. Fighting like a Democrat is a breach of etiquette worse than using the wrong fork. McCarthy is sniffed at for not playing by Marquis of Queensbury Rules -- rules of engagement demanded only of Republicans. Well without McCarthy, Republicans might be congratulating themselves on their excellent behavior from the gulag right now." -- Ann Coulter, P. 70 Treason

"Gore said foreigners are not worried about 'what the terrorist networks are going to do, but about what we're going to do.' Good. They should be worried. They hate us? We hate them. Americans don't want to make Islamic fanatics love us. We want to make them die. There's nothing like horrendous physical pain to quell anger. Japanese Kamikazes pilots hated us once, too. A couple of well-aimed nuclear weapons got their attention. Now they are gentle little lambs." -- Ann Coulter, P. 230 Treason (side note: HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!! She makes Trent Lott look like a Kennedy.)

"Americans cannot comprehend how their fellow countrymen could not love their country. But the left's anti-Americanism is intrinsic to their entire worldview. Liberals promote the right of Islamic fanatics for the same reason they promote the rights of adulterers, pornographers, abortionists, criminals, and Communists. They instinctively root for anarchy against civilization. The inevitable logic of the liberal position is to be for treason." -- Ann Coulter, P. 292 Treason (side note: See the US Constitution to see how out of step she is with the definition of treason in the U.S. It should be noted that treason is the only crime specifically defined in the Constitution, so that people who simply express unpopular opinions as is their right under the First Amendment need not fear being sent to a gulag run by a shrill harpie like her.)

But for the worst, alas, I haven't the space or the attention span to post them here. So, instead, follow this link. I highly recommend this site as it explains, using Ann Coulter's own words, why she is such a dangerous, frightening individual. One of the few things that could make her more dangerous is if she were articulate, which, despite her graduation from law school, she is not. Her love of polemicism gets in the way.
