Coulter’s Under their Skin

I laughed out loud when I read the Communist Bookstore’s blind review of Ann Coulter’s Godless: The Church of Liberalism. Two of their points are worth comment. First, the Communist Bookstore, like many on the left, cannot resist the urge to insult an entire region of the country. That’s a great strategy for winning a national election. Second, they assert that Annie C. lacks a background in academics. Oddly enough, you’d think a bookstore would be capable of a little research which would uncover Coulter’s degrees at Cornell and the University of Michigan School of Law. It appears Coulter has struck a nerve.

Despite their temper tantrum, I reiterate my endorsement of the Communist Bookstore. Despite their head-in-the-clouds approach to life, the size and breadth of their selection cannot be denied.

Great pic of Annie C! I just started reading her book yesterday and will post a review when it’s complete.

Kudos, Mike, for the great pict of Annie C. I’ll be picking the book up later this week!

I also saw some of the Lauer interview, and heard her on MAnnity today… she really goes up the Left’s yahoos. It’s like watching an artist paint!

If she’s typical looking of the women of the Far Right, I’m abandoning my last vestiges of moderation and joining the Republican Party! (Room for Australian Honourary members?)

WOW!

BTW, We’re looking forward to the Brazil game. We’re so up against the wall on that one, but.. each time we get a little better. Held the Netherlands to a draw this week.

Funny that you say that, rightonoz…libs and Dems, during the 1990s, used to criticize young conservative women for being attractive, leading to the questioning of their intellect. This was apparent after Laura Ingraham’s posing in a leopard miniskirt on the cover of NY Times Magazine in 1995 (can’t find the pic, so Ryan/Mike/Sal, if you find it, post it).

On the subject of Ann Coulter, I headed over to BN after school today to have a cup of coffee, brave the dirty looks (that’s right!!! Some lib customers give dirty looks to those who are reading conservative books) and read some more of Godless . After hearing all the interviews and criticisms, I read the infamous chapter 5, which she mentions the 9-11 widows. Yes, she did write the quotes we’ve been hearing, but the media in its reporting, has been disingenuous at least and defaming at most. Unlike the media leads us to believe, this chapter is not exclusively about the 9-11 widows themselves, but instead, they are used to support Coulter’s argument that Libs use these women, along with vets, gold star mothers and CIA relatives, to act as the mouthpiece of libs attacking Republicans and then saying “you can’t attack these people because of their loss/sacrifice.” They are chosen due to the fact the Dems can’t clearly articulate their talking points on their own and they need to hijack/take advantage of emotion and loss to do so. As she describes, Liberals still have not grasped the idea of a free, open and honest dialogue that has come about with the growing audiences of Rush, Sean, Mark and Fox News. They still want it to be like old days where the Big 3 nets and the big newspapers (New York Slimes, Washington Compost, etc) were the only voices out there, and not being challenged.

I feel for these women for their losses, but to be honest, this whole thing is overblown. Would I personally have said what Ann said in the exact fashion? Probably not, but her argument is accurate and as we all know, with Ann Coulter you will get a blunt and no spin zone style of commentary. These women have every right to get answers and to do it in the public forum, but the minute they cut a political ad and take a side, they have lost their objectivity.

Ann Coulter is being dragged through the mud because of her opinion and has been the focus of she who shall not be named as well as Matt Lauer .

The book is really good (three chapters in and chapter 5), I admire her no spin zone style, and I hope to finish it really soon. The book is now number 1 on Amazon and will very soon be number 1 on the NYT Bestseller list.

Just a refresher to one of our earliest posts, showing the difference between Conservative women and Liberal women.

The Slimes did a fairly scathing article on Annie C…looking forward to her response. BTW, I finished the book and will have more to say about it later.
