Ann Coulter...........A Disgrace

“I am a Christian and everything comes from being a Christian. I do think Christianity fuels all of my books because you are called upon to behave in a certain way as a Christian — that is to fight lies, injustice, cruelty, hypocrisy…” Ann Coulter talking to Matt Lauer on the Today Show

Does this woman live by her own words?

Ann Coulter, the leggy blonde talking head, a creation of the media, seems to me to be one of the most venomously driven individuals taking up space in the world of "free speech." I find her one-liner sound bites appallingly hurtful and downright nasty. She's a Christian? Well, she doesn't represent the values of Christianity that I believe in, nor was I taught. And yet, the wingy right wingers consider her the best poster child for family values.

Ann Coulter is an attention whore who has lived as a pariah off the grief and emotional tragedy of her fellow countrymen and women. Time and again, she spouts off poison into the airwaves with no regard for her chosen targets. In her latest bile producing opus, she writes specifically about 4 women who became widowed due to the the 9-11 attack. She writes:

"These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them."

"They believed the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony."

"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities andstalked by grief-arazzis. I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much."

"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."

This written by a woman, also a millionaire, whose income has mostly come from her speeches and writings about the deaths of the individuals on 9/11. And when someone has the audacity to criticize her rantings, she labels them "Godless" and "un-American." Not only is Coulter an offense to intelligent political dialogue, which I strongly believe is needed from both sides of the park, she is also an offense to the Christian faith. Her meanness and her hypocrisy is simply appalling. She doesn't debate. She postulates. Ann Coulter is missing the humanity gene.

And yet.................... this woman receives unbelievable airplay? Yes, it's a game of ratings erection. Her phallic goods make media moguls salivate as they continously provide her air time to stroke the geezers holding their channel changers even if what she is stating is hurtful and disgraceful.

She may be a stunner to look at I guess (she doesn't do much for me, though I've never been one to be attracted to 6ft tall anorexic blonde talking heads......and gee if I did that would make me a lesbian enemy.....eeeek), but her words and nastiness make her appearance shrivel into an ugly vision of dried up fruit that's been sitting in a bowl on the mantel way too long.

A few more Annie tidbits...............................

After being asked why she hates Canada: "Because they speak French."

"I think [women] should be armed but should not vote...women have no capacity to understand how money is earned. They have a lot of ideas on how to spend's always more money on education, more money on child care, more money on day care." - Politically Incorrect

"It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted." - May 17, 2003.

Can we just ignore this talking head and not give her the airplay and attention that oxygenates her vitriolic venting? I for one will not be reading anymore about her. Life is too short to be wasting it on reading and listening to spewed unintelligent hatred.

Great post... I thoroughly enjoyed reading about this, and even went to google to find out more about Ann Coulter. You are right.... she is a disgrace!

For a woman to denounce voting for women, and then to sneak around Florida and vote where SHE pleases, seems to completely negate her statements. Her use of politically incorrect verbage is rude, condecending and all out mean. What's truly sad is that people will view her politics and try to act on them... thereby evolving new "little Hitlers" to deal with in the future.

Thanks for bringing her type to blogworld... now I know what to avoid. But then, I'm a "liberal" thinker anyway....

I had certified her looney after watching the clip on the TODAY show, and some other things from before. After reading these other comments, I am starting to feel really sorry for her!

Someone please prescribe her something!
