the protein wisdom interview:  Ann Coulter

image

Ann Coulter is the author of four New York Times bestsellers — How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must)(October, 2004), Treason: Liberal Treachery From the Cold War to the War on Terrorism (June 2003); Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right (June 2002); and High Crimes and Misdemeanors:The Case Against Bill Clinton (August 1998).

Her newest book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, will debut at at No. 1 on The New York Times best-seller list on June 25th.

*****************

protein wisdom: “So.  You hate liberals, yes?”

Ann Coulter: “Do I ‘hate’ them?  No, I wouldn’t say I hate them, exactly.  I leave the hatred of political opponents to Howard Dean.  But I have called them godless, treasonous, slanderers.”

protein wisdom: “Yeah, I read that.”

Ann Coulter:

protein wisdom:Awesome.”

Ann Coulter:

protein wisdom: “…How about splitting an order of mozzarella sticks?  I have a $10 TGI Friday’s gift certificate just burning a hole in my pocket…”

Ann Coulter: “I don’t think so, no.”

protein wisdom: “You sure?  Because it’s found money, so it’s really no big deal…”

Ann Coulter:

protein wisdom: “Oh well.  Maybe some other time, then.”

Ann Coulter: “Doubtful.”

protein wisdom: “—unless, that is, you have something else to say?  I mean, I wouldn’t want to give your arguments short shrift, but I’m pretty sure we’ve covered them all.  Right?”

  1. This interview might have worked better if you’d gotten her a nice quivering liberal to poke with a sharp stick, just for fun, before you laid all those smooth lines on her.

    TW john, as in, “You have a better chance at a liason as a John than with Coulter.” How does this program choose these words?

  2. that is not ann coulter.

    that is a barbie doll.

    don’t you know the difference, jeff?

    a difference in physical scale, if not in intellectual capacity.

  3. I loooove Ann Coulter, but she sure doesn’t need to be skipping any more meals.

    Imagine Ann’s mind in the body of that fat blonde broad on MSNBC, what’s her name, oh yeah, Rita Cosby.

  4. I think Ann may be jumping the shark before our eyes with this latest book and her associated “charm offensive”.

    There is a certain entertainment value in watching her harangue leftists, but she lost me for good when she started attacking science.

  5. I don’t know…I think you almost had her.  If only you hadn’t come off as – sorry, Jeff – a bit cheap with the gift certificate thing.

    Nevermind.  It’s not like you didn’t try.  And after all, it’s the effort that counts.  Right?

  6. protein wisdom: Remember when you were on the Today show and you flung Matt Lauer around like he was a chew toy?

    Ann Coulter: Yes.

    protein wisdom: That was awesome.

  7. So. How bout those legs?

  8. So Jeff, I guess you never called her after that night at the 2004 RNC?

  9. Imagine Ann’s mind in the body of that fat blonde broad on MSNBC…

    ?

    If it’s okay, I think I’ll imagine it in the body of either the “Mercury” or “YellowBook” girl.

  10. Ann, godbless her meanie little soul, is keeping the fireworks flying. Her latest statement to outrage the opposition concerns Murtha and “fragging” in the same sentence. Read it here……

    TW: ”john” …. Yes birdbrain….We already talked about the john…..

  11. Man! I was going to ask Ann out for a COCKtail if I ever got to meet her, but ,now I don’t know. Hate the rejection don’t you know.

  12. Murtha on patrol, to his men,

    “Now why did you Marines have to go and kill all those innocent civilians last week, just for blood lust?  Now don’t try to deny it, I heard it from the media and I know what Marines are like, so it must be true.”

    Marines,

    “BOOM!”

  13. Isn’t a hateful person who writes a book about godless people kind of like al-Zarqawi writing a book on democracy?

    Ann Coulter knows nothing about God. But she does know about bearing false witness and profiting from other people’s misery. If Ann Coulter (and those who support her) knew what God thinks of what she’s done, she’d realize that she’s utterly, totally and completely screwed. What goes around, comes around.

  14. So you’re saying Jeff’s post is just the start, then?

  15. If Ann Coulter (and those who support her) knew what God thinks of what she’s done, she’d realize that she’s utterly, totally and completely screwed.

    Good to know that you seem to know exactly what God thinks of Coulter.  You got an “in”, buddy?

  16. Gimme back my doll, pasty!

  17. Does Ann Coulter have any actual supporters?

    I know she sells a lot of books and simple logic indicates that someone’s buying them, but, really, is there anyone on the right who doesn’t consider her an embarrassment?

  18. For the record, that’s not me in that picture, but I believe that’s the talking Ann Coulter action figure.  I’m ashamed to have been associated with someone who speaks such hateful things.  Mostly because…well…I don’t talk.

    Gotta go get new batteries for my ‘Vette.

    Toodles!

  19. It’s the Pantomime Ann Coulter.

  20. Well, Timmy Mac, what do you mean by “supporters”?  If you mean “I dig that comment she made about the Jersey Girlz enjoying their hubbies being vaporized”, then personally I’d have to say “no”.  If you mean supporting the point she was trying to make about authenticity-by-victimhood politics that serves as the very foundation of the political left today I’m all for it.

    But others may disagree.

  21. rls, you wanna be asking about the nature of that God when you get the 411. Caveat emptor and all…

  22. Did I mention my ‘Vette was a hybrid?  You know…batteries.

    Toodles!

  23. > Good to know that you seem to know exactly what

    > God thinks of Coulter.  You got an “in”, buddy?

    Well, I do know what God says about extremely wealthy people in a position of strength, exploiting vulnerable people for their own profit and personal gain. In fact, there’s no category of people whose actions God despises more and no consequence more serious.

    Anyhow, I’m so sick of hearing people support Ann Coulter – either by giving them her money, or by turning her into the latest fashionable media darling, or by doing nothing – that the Republicans have lost my vote.

  24. Natasha: how is she committing false witness and how is she profiting from others’ misery?

    And then I would ask: how are the Jersey Girls not committing false witness and how are they not profiting from their misery?

  25. “Anyhow, I’m so sick of hearing people support Ann Coulter – either by giving them her money, or by turning her into the latest fashionable media darling, or by doing nothing – that the Republicans have lost my vote.”

    Wow! Gods mouthpiece judging the entire republican party for something one author said…we’re screwed guys.

    Whatever will we do without Natasha?

    I feel so ashamed…

    TW:I’m green with envy that Natasha knows the mind of God

  26. Well, I do know what God says about extremely wealthy people in a position of strength, exploiting vulnerable people for their own profit and personal gain.

    And this has what to do with Ann Coulter’s criticism of the Jersey Girls?  Or do you believe, like the Leftards, that they are above reproach due to their standing as 911 widows?

    Incidently, there has been plenty of criticism of her verbiage or doesn’t it count unless there is also a call to ban her book?

    And the Republicans never had your vote anyway.  What does God say about fibbers, by the way?

  27. Well of course, there was that bit about the eye of the needle and the camel…but I didn’t say they sucked or were hopeless or anything.

    I always get a chuckle of Ann’s books.  Her books and Vanessa Williams CDs are a guilty pleasures of mine.

    You’re all my children.  Be good. To one another. 

    And you wealthy ones:  book deal or no book deal…I know what you’re dropping into the basket!!

  28. “I always get a chuckle OUT of Ann’s books…”

    I meant to say.

    (Moses and I had a heck of a time getting the tablets typo-free…)

  29. And this has what to do with Ann Coulter’s criticism of the Jersey Girls?  Or do you believe, like the Leftards, that they are above reproach due to their standing as 911 widows?

    Above reproach for what exactly? Any other 911 victims that you want to tear to shreds? Anyone else left widowed you want slandered?

    Incidently, there has been plenty of criticism of her verbiage or doesn’t it count unless there is also a call to ban her book?

    Really? So she lost which contracts and publishers? Which Christian conservative organization came out unequivocally against her? Which conservative news show *didn’t* give her the opportunity for self promotion?

    And the Republicans never had your vote anyway.  What does God say about fibbers, by the way?

    You’re right but not because you’re big and clever. I’ve only been old enough for one election and I was (and still am) elsewhere in the world with my father. But I’ll be back soon. And I’ll be voting.

  30. Well I for one am not voting refuglikkan either because of this…this…atrocity!!

    Thank God we have the likes of people like Murtha,Olberman,Stewart,Moore,Algore,Feinstein,etc…etc that speak THE REAL TRUTH TO POWER.

    but i’d tap that.

  31. LionDude.

    First, it’s not ok to call me Timmy Mac.

    Second, what I mean by “supporter” is fairly straightforward–not does she have some general ideal that you also share? but do you think she is a positive force for conservatism?

    Do you think conservatives are better or worse for having her as one of our spokespeople?

  32. I blame the 19th Amendment.

  33. You’re all my children.  Be good. To one another.

    But Go-o-o-o-o-od! Ann said mean things about me! Can’t I bitchslap her just once?

    Well, okay, twice if she does like You said and turns the other cheek. Pleeeeeeeease?

  34. Didn’t God also say “Love thy neighbor’s book for the message if you don’t like the humor”?  Something like that.  It’s in the Bible.

  35. “I was (and still am) elsewhere in the world with my father. But I’ll be back soon.”

    I love you and all..but Gabriel and I were going to download the Average White Band’s “If I Ever Lose this Heaven” and have a martini.  Maybe discuss the Quincy Jones version.  So…how shall I say…If you’re going to hang, check the hysteria at the doot.

  36. I’ve only been old enough for one election…

    That explains everything.

  37. That should be “door” not “doot”…

    G mixes a mean martini..

  38. God sez:

    And you wealthy ones:  book deal or no book deal…I know what you’re dropping into the basket!!

    Uh, Your Dudeness? You mind clueing us in on which basket? Between the Jewboy and the Christianists and a couple of Wiccans and a religion I shan’t mention but seems to include gore (blood and guts, not Al, naturally) and ululation, we obviously haven’t got a clue.

    So where do I put my money? Really. I’m tired of fucking around here. Just point me to the right one, ok? I don’t have to play this game when I call Merrill Lynch.

  39. Good Lord Natasha, the Republicans lost your vote because of Ann Coulter?  That’s the issue that is most important to you?

  40. Really? So she lost which contracts and publishers? Which Christian conservative organization came out unequivocally against her? Which conservative news show *didn’t* give her the opportunity for self promotion?

    Well, Nat, there is this little inconvenience known as the 1st Amendment.  Here’s how it works.  See, Ann Coulter has the freedom to write “Godless” in the same way that Michael Moore has the right to write “Dude’ Where’s My Country”.  And you are free to criticize what she writes, as I am to criticize the Land Whale’s screed.  But neither of us has the right to ban or censor either book.  Or is freedom of speech a right enjoyed only by those whith whom you agree?

    But I’ll be back soon. And I’ll be voting.

    Good.  You should.

  41. Well I for one am not voting refuglikkan either because of this…this…atrocity!!

    You laugh, but just wait. There are millions of Christians who will never, NEVER, NEVER let someone like Ann Coulter speak for them, regardless of any political allegiances. No way. It’s unthinkable. (Even O’Reilly backed off from Ann Coulter, always a bit of a giveaway as to what the Republican party is thinking).

    We will NEVER let Ann Coulter speak for us.

  42. Do you think conservatives are better or worse for having her as one of our spokespeople?

    Is she a conservative spokesperson?  To what end?  She seems to me to be content to inflame, entertain, and sell books to the diehards, which I personally feel is not really living up to her potential.  I am sure she gives a shit what I think, also.

  43. I’ll bet the ‘dillo would hit it. 

    Hit it like a moonbat that’s just laid eyes on patchouli-filled hot tub.

  44. Woa, Timster.  Just trying to keep things light here, fella.  From now on, I’ll refer to you as MISTER MAGUIRE, and I’m keeping the caps on to show I mean mad respect.

    Seems you didn’t read my post.  I told you specifically what I didn’t agree with and that the general point she made is what I did agree with.

    Conservatism will do just fine with or without Ms. Coulter.  She’s not being attacked for her conservatism, after all.  She’s being attacked for a single rather irresponsible (IMO) comment.  The fact that she’s conservative only makes the left want to connect her statements to the rest of us more civil-minded folk who can agree AND disagree with those on the conservative side of the political spectrum.  You’re playing the same game by suggesting that we’ll all crumble like cheap tents because of a stupid comment she made that has nothing to do with conservatism, and was more of a cheap shot in order to get to the real message of, again, victimhood politics enabled by the left and by the mainstream media.  A point, by the way, that has yet to be even mentioned and/or refuted.  Because, you know, she’s mean and all that.

  45. Good Lord Natasha, the Republicans lost your vote because of Ann Coulter?  That’s the issue that is most important to you?

    No, not because of that, but it is a graphic symbol of how sick the Republican party is becoming. It hadn’t hit home till that happened. It just occurred to me one day, this is absolutely mad. The whole party has gone absolutely mad. If we don’t have enough problems, we’ve now got this mad, hateful woman speaking for God.

  46. Natasha,

    I guess where you are you don’t get Fox News.  Bill O’Reilly is not representative of typical Republican thinking.  Unless you aren’t a Republican and then you might get confused about what we think.

    And he also does not like Ann Coulter and pretty much says she is wrong every time she is on his show.

    Happy Friday All!

  47. “(Even O’Reilly backed off from Ann Coulter, always a bit of a giveaway as to what the Republican party is thinking)”

    That had less to do with ideology and more to do with me telling him where he could stick the “Factor Loofa” he sent me.

  48. At least this interview saves all the other RW pundits’ time coming up with examples of how she should have said this or that.

    So is the GOP now the POG?…just wondering.

  49. I’d like to request an episode of Celebrity Death Match, with Al Franken and Ann Coulter in the ring. 

    To me, they are roughly equivalent and just as useless.

    With sites of the caliber of Protein Wisdom, Ace, Hot Air/Allah and Instapundit, who neeeds a Coulter?

  50. Well, Nat, there is this little inconvenience known as the 1st Amendment.  Here’s how it works.  See, Ann Coulter has the freedom to write “Godless” in the same way that Michael Moore has the right to write “Dude’ Where’s My Country”…

    Believe me, I have no problem with Ann Coulter writing her book and saying whatever she want to say. I don’t even mind it becoming a bestseller.

    What I do mind, is that the party I thought I respected, has let this mean work of slander go unchallenged because it suits their political purposes. It’s been a bit of an eye opener for me, that this party that claims to be espousing values, is actually bankrupt.

  51. The whole party has gone absolutely mad. If we don’t have enough problems, we’ve now got this mad, hateful woman speaking for God.

    Nats, she doesn’t speak for the whole party, or even a significant subsection.  She speaks for herself.

    So, as a Christian, do you feel more comfortable with the Dems?  You feel they speak for you and your beliefs?  Remember, when Fred Phelps ran for office, he ran as a Dem.  Think about it.

  52. No, not because of that, but it is a graphic symbol of how sick the Republican party is becoming.

    Ann Coulter: Quagmire.

    Hey, it sells books. Lots and lots of books.

  53. Tim Maquire, you need to visit FreakRepublic.com. Those are the people she panders to. The sad thing is many think that’s the POG’s base.

  54. You’re a real shit-for-brains, “Natasha”.

    There.  I just spoke for every beer-drinking Scots-Irish Texan warmongering pool-playing baseball-loving dachsund-owning stepdad in the world, so be sure you never vote for any of us.

    Imbecile.

  55. I’ve got the answer!!!!

    Natasha is CheChe’s daughter!!!!!!

  56. I guess where you are you don’t get Fox News.  Bill O’Reilly is not representative of typical Republican thinking. 

    This is the age of satellite TV and we get everything. We even get Russian TV (complete with dots and streaky diagonal lines). My father is a diplomat and I think we can afford it, duh, this is the age of the satellite!!

    Unless you aren’t a Republican and then you might get confused about what we think.

    I guess I’m not any more. But I know exactly what you think because I listen to Republicans (in the flesh) all day long, and sometimes all evening too, and all through meals, and to half conversations when they’re talking on the phone.

    And he also does not like Ann Coulter and pretty much says she is wrong every time she is on his show.

    I know. That’s what I said.

    Got to go guys. Didn’t mean to stay so long.

  57. (Moses and I had a heck of a time getting the tablets typo-free…)

    Yo, God, Man,

    Are you saying Moses wasn’t just the messenger?

    I knew he was clever with money (Remember: Jesus saves. Moses invests!), but I didn’t realize he could type!

    surprised

    TW: later, Dude.

  58. Man, I’ve never seen such a flattering likeness of Miss Coulter.  I’d totally hit that shit, ‘namsayin’?

    Anyway, I’ve gotta go.  Somebody stole the fuckin’ batteries out of my ‘Vette.

  59. If we don’t have enough problems, we’ve now got this mad, hateful woman speaking for God.

    Wait. How did we go from Ann voicing an opinion to “speaking for God”?

    Are you saying that if a self-proclaimed Christian opines in public, she’s “speaking for God”?

    Or are you saying that someone who’s openly Republican is by definition “speaking for God”?

    I’m confused. Please help me out here.

    Also, if the Republican party is too sick for you, does that mean you’ll join the Dems? Do they have something going for them that Repubs don’t?

  60. Let’s see, exactly when was Ann Coulter spotted sitting next to George H. W. Bush at a Republican Convention, ala Michael “Hey, those are my donuts!” Moore sitting in the VIP box with Jimmah Carter at the 2004 election? http://www.indcjournal.com/archives/mmoore2.jpg Which is one heck of an endorsement of Mikus Giganticus’s drivel by the Democratic party, if you ask me.

  61. Isn’t interesting that NOT A SINGLE GOP politician has come out in support of Ann’s comments, or endorseded them, but nutbags like Natasha tar the whole party with her brush. Yet, Michael Moore sits next to Jimmah carter at the Democrat Nat’l Covention and the Congressional Democrats host a special screening of “Farenheit 9/11” then come out and pontificate about how important this “mockumentary” is and that all Americans should see it, yet nary a peep of outrage or demand that Demo’s distance themselves from or repudiate his lies, insults and hate speech is ever uttered.

    Or when Alec Baldwin, that posterboy for the left, comes out and says that good progressives should “stone Henry Hyde to death” and then “go to his home and kill his family” and yet, no one on the left “distances” themselves from his loony rantings. His abominations simply get ignored.

    Sorry Natasha, but your indignation and outrage would be much more credible if once, just once, you and your ilk would hold a “progressive” bomb thrower like Jackson, Sharpton, Baldwin, Franken,

    Streisand, etc. to account.

    But since you haven’t, don’t and won’t, STFU.

  62. You’re a real shit-for-brains, “Natasha”.

    Kind of a bit predictable don’t you think?

  63. …to get to the real message of, again, victimhood politics enabled by the left and by the mainstream media.  A point, by the way, that has yet to be even mentioned and/or refuted.

    But who is the target for the message?  The inflammatory language and predictable ensuing uproar do not seem conducive to new markets.  The people buying the book and rallying to her defense are not new fans, but the old tried and true, just whipped into a new spending frenzy.  I ain’t buying it.

  64. Dave in CO,

    “Incidently, there has been plenty of criticism of her verbiage or doesn’t it count unless there is also a call to ban her book?”

    St. Michael has joined the happy hour and he says he’d like to see a ban on Andrew Greeley books. Ha! That got us all laughing! What a hoot! 

    Anyway, Billy Preston is here and we’re prevailing on him to do his wonderful version of “My Sweet Lord”.

  65. Yah, it’s as predictable as some imbecile troll showing up to lecture us.

    Jeff just took her down a peg.  You do understand that, right?  No, clearly you don’t.

    Anyway, if it makes you feel better, she’s reprehensible.  But you’re still a complete and total tool.

  66. Gods mouthpiece judging the entire republican party for something one author said…we’re screwed guys.

    Jesus, I don’t think it’s terribly presumptuous to point out that making millions from books slandering the patriotism and religious convictions of political opponents isn’t exactly consistent with the message of the God Coulter and her supporters claim to follow.  Besides, Coulter and her fans constantly claim to know the minds and hearts of anyone they don’t like as well as God’s will so I’d say they’ve forfeited any defense from similar criticisms.

    It’s one thing to disagree with the Jersey Girls and rebut their arguments, but if claiming a group of widows are enjoying the deaths of their husbands isn’t bearing false witness then it’s a pretty meaningless commandment.  Never mind writing a book denigrating the religious beliefs of millions just because you don’t like their politics.

  67. “I always get a chuckle OUT of Ann’s boobs…”

    Typo.

  68. if the Republican party is too sick for you, does that mean you’ll join the Dems? Do they have something going for them that Repubs don’t?

    You mean besides the lack of a God complex?

  69. Anyway, Billy Preston is here and we’re prevailing on him to do his wonderful version of “My Sweet Lord”

    Yo, G-Man.  Tell Billy howdy from me and that I dug his chops on Clapton’s Robert Johnson tribute.  Miss his bad self.

  70. (Even O’Reilly backed off from Ann Coulter, always a bit of a giveaway as to what the Republican party is thinking).

    Good Lord, you have been out of the country.

    Where are you?  Mars?

  71. Jesus, I don’t think it’s terribly presumptuous to point out that making millions from books slandering the patriotism and religious convictions of political opponents isn’t exactly consistent with the message of the God Coulter and her supporters claim to follow.

    You got it in one SeanH. Everything you said, exactly like you said it, is exactly what I mean. And it really gets up my nose. It’s completely off the scale. It’s not that I can’t live with Ann Coulter, but I can’t live with a culture that thinks it’s ok. Thanks SeanH. Take care – Nat.

  72. Wait, I’ll have my new budy Nats do it for me.  She speaks for you anyway, right?

  73. Natasha sez:

    Kind of a bit predictable don’t you think?

    Indeed. It’s like when you plant corn, and then corn grows up out of the ground.

    I’d rather have an avocado tree right here in New England.

    No one would see that coming.

  74. Sorry to interrupt your party, Lord, but Pablo asked a pretty good question a while back…

    So where do I put my money? Really. I’m tired of fucking around here. Just point me to the right one, ok? I don’t have to play this game when I call Merrill Lynch.

    …and some of us are waiting for an answer, ya know.  Please.  I’ve got my opinions, but it’s always nice to get a confirmation.

    Oh, and say “hi” to John Bonham for me.  I mean, if he’s up there.

  75. “Between the Jewboy and the Christianists and a couple of Wiccans and a religion I shan’t mention but seems to include gore (blood and guts, not Al, naturally) and ululation, we obviously haven’t got a clue.”

    Don’t sweat it, I got multiple checking accounts for each branch. Though I’m constantly raiding the other accounts to keep from overdrawing on my Buddha account. Cheap unemployed bastards. The only reason I keep the damned thing open is it has free ATM use.

  76. You should ask AC…she seems to know who’s Godless or not.

  77. Captain Holly,

    “…and some of us are waiting for an answer, ya know.  Please.  I’ve got my opinions, but it’s always nice to get a confirmation.”

    Here’s the deal:  I can create anything I want..for example…I’m on my third adult beverage and was wanting a contemplative Camel Light to fire up and…presto!

    But anyway…give where it will do the most good—for you and the cause.  I gave you free will for goodness sake!  So if it’s Jeff’s Pay Pal or a law enforcement office injured in the line of duty or whatever…just do some good.  I gave you a heart and a brain.  Use them. I love you.

  78. Well, I do know what God says about extremely wealthy people in a position of strength, exploiting vulnerable people for their own profit and personal gain. In fact, there’s no category of people whose actions God despises more and no consequence more serious.

    If you can’t understand the absurdity of a bunch of wealthy politicians claiming to stand for the interests of the little guy and espousing socialism as the way to do it–all, without relinquishing one red cent of their own and all while spending millions of the taxpayers’ dollars in the pursuit of power–you have no sense of humor. In fact, you may have no sense at all.

    Name one single average-income person in the Democrat Party. They’re all wealthy businessmen or they inherited it or made millions as personal injury attorneys–or married into it, like Kerry. They don’t eat rice and beans or dress poorly, and they can all retire on a golden parachute, one they voted for themselves. They’re sure as hell not relying on the bankrupt social security system. According to your own criteria, they ought all to be lined up against the wall and shot.

    Out of your own mouth…

    tw: money. This is absolutely frightening.

  79. Ann, Ann, Ann……

    IT’S BECAUSE OF THE RESTRAINING ORDER!

  80. and her supporters

    Sorry, you lost me.  Her what?

    I happen to think Coulter’s a slow-motion train wreck, but to hear Natasha suggest that the GOP should mount some kind of PR operation to counter her is just ridiculous.  They’re no more responsible for her than the man in the moon.  If the parties had to explicitly distance themselves from the Loon Continuum from Coulter to Buchanan to Phelps to Larry O’Donnell to Michael Moore, they’d have time for precious little else.

    Now that I think of it, Natasha, that’s a brilliant idea.

  81. Now that I think of it, Natasha, that’s a brilliant idea.

    He’s got a point.

  82. - The Left is such a bunch of non-serious children. Only the brain-dead “progressives” could clamour for the idea of dispatching the wealthy, the very people they get their wealth from for “redistribution”. They can’t possibly think things through. Silly idea’s from silly people. Yes….Lets run right out and slaughter the Golden Goose…. That will work…. Dyed in the wool dolts….

  83. Nat,

    A “culture” that thinks WHAT is okay?  Who’s defending the “enjoys the deaths” comment here?  Yes, SeanH, it is one thing to question the political motives of the Jersey Girlzz and one thing to slander them in doing so.  Again, who is defending the latter?  But also, who’s avoiding the issue of the former simply because the latter case was irresponsibly set forth by said author?

    It’s also a bit presumptious to say that she’s “pandering” to some specific “market”.  An opinionated nonfiction author, if they’re worth a damn, will write what they themselves think in whatever style they choose.  If it sells, it sells.  If people agree with some things, all things, or nothing in the book, that isn’t the author’s problem.  Whether they buy it or not isn’t the author’s problem, either.  The publishers looking at the bottom line care, of course, but you wouldn’t be for suggesting what books should and shouldn’t be published now, would you?

    Personally, I think ol’ Ann is getting a bit batty.

  84. Well, while you’ve been arguing, we’ve tapped the Budweiser keg and downloaded the Staples Singers…a lot of groovin’…a lot of white man’s overbite…a lot of “Hep Me!”

    I know what comes next…pleas for the “Bless ‘em, Smote ‘em” game…

  85. Whether they buy it or not isn’t the author’s problem, either.

    Not very familiar with the entertainment and publishing industries, are we?

  86. - One of thr Lefts favorite little tricks, using the “victim infallibility” scam to spread their screeds has been exposed. So they’ve got their snickers in a wad. Don’t care they’re called “Godless”, they’re cool with that. Just that one of their political ploys has been “outed”. That’s what it’s all about.

    - Course, in the mean time, small time opportunists like Johnson can write the most unimaginable vicious crap about his political “enemies”, and few if any “Progressives” take him to task. The usual Liberal double standard bullshit. They hate Coulter because she’s shines the light on all the cockroaches, and she scares the crap out of them.

  87. Congratulations to Natasha.  Regardless of whether she’s a lovely, young diplomat’s daughter, or some fat guy in a Cheetos-stained t-shirt, she managed to jack the thread.  It seems there’s always someone out there who is willing and able to do that. 

    Back on topic: congratulations to you too, Jeff.  As usual, this is funny and thoughtful.  If Ann Coulter had half your talent and brains she’d be a danger to the world.  As it is, she’s got all the money, and you…well, you’re a danger to an awfully large segment of the world’s population.  It’s little wonder they keep sending nitwits over here to jack your threads.  They must think it accomplishes something.  What, I don’t know.

  88. This is the age of satellite TV and we get everything. We even get Russian TV (complete with dots and streaky diagonal lines). My father is a diplomat and I think we can afford it, duh, this is the age of the satellite!!

    Why do I fear Natasha just gave away a state secret?

    Nats, on the Russian “TV channel”, is it mostly people wandering around what looks like an embassy?  Or talking in meeting rooms?

  89. And while you were dishing out kudos to Natasha…

    …we opened the scotch…which brought the welcome appearance of Ronnie Lane and a rousing sing-along rendition of “Ooh-la-la” which led to karaoke versions of Stevie Nicks’ Silver Spring, Roxy Music’s More Than This, Willie Nelson’s Promised Land and Stevie Wonder’s Ribbon in the Sky…

    Live a little…bottom’s up…

  90. Just a couple of things:

    First, Ann Coulter is a showman, out to garner attention and get as many people as possible to buy her books. No one should take her any more seriously than we take Michael Moore.

    Second…seriously…is anyone REALLY buying the notion that “Natasha” is a diplomat’s kid?  Come one guys:  “Natasha” is some squirrelly little nerd from Sadly No (and/or Cleveland) sitting in his basement cackling at all the attention he/she getting.

    Ewwww!  I feel so… used.

  92. First, Ann Coulter is a showman, out to garner attention and get as many people as possible to buy her books. No one should take her any more seriously than we take Michael Moore.

    You know, I’ve kind of wondered about that — big hands, sort of a prominent Adam’s apple for a girl.

    Still kinda hot though.

  93. Natasha:

    We will NEVER let Ann Coulter speak for us.

    I wonder whom she means by “we.”

    Jeff, when are we going to have Anna Nicole Smith again?

  94. I didn’t know the Wilsons had a daughter.

  95. One of thr Lefts favorite little tricks, using the “victim infallibility” scam to spread their screeds has been exposed.

    These women don’t seem so infallible. And their fallibility isn’t that they’re enjoying their husband’s death. But they do mention 9/11 as much as a RNC convetion. And they’re democrats. So for that, they must be attacked. But first, we pretend they’re infallible, to justify the attack.

  96. Actus, Natasha is already driving this bus.  Maybe you should wait for the next one?

    TW: cars…don’t stand in the middle of the road while you’re waiting, you might get run over.

  97. You guys are so freakin’ gullible.

  98. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a look of misery and dejection on the face of my daughter Natasha as I just did a moment ago.  She just couldn’t understand why Ann Coulter couldn’t be muzzled and placed in stocks for politically incorrect speech. “Doesn’t freedom of speech only apply to liberals?” she asked pitifully.

    I sat down with her on the sofa and (as calmly as I could) tried to explain to her why Ann Coulter seems to be so over the top in her hatred of liberals .  “Honey, I think her boss, Mr. Rove, sent Mrs. Coulter out to distract all the sheeple from the true problems in this country.  You see, he wasn’t sure if he was going to be arrested today or not, and so he planned Mrs. Coulter’s outbursts ahead of time just in case…”

    I tried to keep my voice steady, but it became increasingly difficult – the rage and feelings of helplessness were just too much.  I think my daughter could tell something was wrong.  I found myself at such a loss for words – nothing made any sense; nothing makes sense anymore.  I finally had to admit, “Honey, I just don’t know – I don’t know what’s going on in this country anymore…”

    When I finished her lower lip started to tremble and her eyes began to fill with tears, “Daddy” she said, “why are the Republicans doing this to the country?” Well, that was it for me:  I finally fell apart.  She just fell into my arms and we both began sobbing for several minutes.

    For once she had to comfort me and get me back on my feet.  Sometimes I just think it’s too much, but seeing the strength in my young daughter’s voice helped me to get through.

  99. Who knew God was a troll on Jeff Goldstein’s blog? In Vacation Bible School they told me he was everywhere all the time. But here too? Who knew?

    – The Jersey Girls have garnered wealth, fame and power as a direct result of their husbands deaths. They have become spokeswomen for the Democratic Party. –

    That’s true isn’t it? Ann Coulter is telling the truth about the Jersey Girls, isn’t she? So to compare her to Michael Moore is the same as saying the truth is a lie. Which I believe is quite fashionable in certain Democratic circles.

    I read Ann Coulter’s column every week. Sometimes is’s funny, sometimes not so much. Every now and then I ROTFL from her writing. It’s funny because it’s true.

  100. Act-dude,

    I guess it depends on what you mean by “attack”.  If you mean slandering, then Ms. Coulter is your gal.  But wondering why whenever a 9/11 widow’s opinion is sought about U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East the mainstream media head straight for the politically charged Jersey Girrllzz (who have every right to enter the political arena) hardly qualifies as an “attack”. 

    Perhaps Debra Burlingame should come up with a catchy nickname to get some quality air time.

  101. Wink Martindale sure asked her some tough questions. That guy is an excellent reporter. Larry Storch is also a helluva questionaire.

    Waitaminit. Is that a word? A profession?
