Coulter in 'hot water'

    And at least Coulter isn't moving to a state she has never lived in before so she can run for the senate in 2008...

    Yes, because that's the best barometer of an individual's contributions to discourse.

    All that would prove is that more legions of right-wingers are stupid enough to buy her books.

    I've said it a million times: Coulter is not a joke because she's conservative. She's a joke because she's a fucking fraud. And she's laughing all the way to the bank.

    And Franken was born in New York but grew up in suburban Minneapolis, where his parents still live. Try again.
  3. Uh, incorrect.
    Of course, John McCain never lived in Arizona until he ran for Congress from there, but I'm sure that doesn't matter because all politics really sucks and we should just ignore people so they'll go away.

    Because the libs can't stand it when someone disagrees with them, especially when that someone (whether you like her or not) gets her books on the top of the best-seller lists and gets on FOX and CNN. They hate her because she has a voice, and networks and publishers are falling all over themselves to get that voice on the air or the printed page.

    On the other hand, it's remarkably easy for people to ignore Al Franken, Janeann Garafalo, Rosie O'Donnell and the rest of that ilk. The dismal collapse of Air America is proof.
  5. So hondo, the 9/11 widows really are enjoying their husbands deaths?

    I think Mizzou was talking about Hillary.

    Probably not .... that comment was over the wall. However, when they or Michael J. Fox or Cindy Sheehan enter the public discourse in support of causes or candidates, they also open themselves to being opposed by people who are on the other side of those causes or candidates. This is a great little ploy Dems use ... Trot out someone they think can't be criticized or opposed, then get indignent because they are opposed ... not them, personally, but their political stance.
    Before you get your hackles up, remember the news item from three years ago when George Clooney made a joke about Charlton Heston's Alzheimer's, then refused to apoligize because he said Heston being involved with the NRA made him a public figure, and open for jokes/criticism.
    You guys try to have it both ways. You can't.

    My favourite Anne Coulter moment:

    She gets taken to the woodshed by a veteran CBC reporter and in typical Coulter fashion, tries to bully the interviewer who, in this case, refused to be bullied.

    As someone else said, people don't dislike Anne Coulter because she's a conservative: we dislike her because she's a fraud, she's hateful and she's ignorant.
  9. Yes.By all means. Discuss the issue of stem-cell research or whether or not we should have had a 9/11 commission on the merits of each issue. But this notion that taking a political position is to allow yourself to be slandered is a short route to people in armbands and bricks through the window.
    JR's right.

    Your comparison is an insult to self-respecting douches throughout the civilized world . . .

    And that's your code for saying you dislike her because she doesn't agree with your views. Why don't you just admit it?
