Pardon me?

The bile that pours from this woman's mouth astounds me. Exactly what is considered crossing the line? She is making a fortune from promoting hate. Please, if you watch any television shows, or read a paper where she is paid to appear, write a letter of outrage. While I feel sorry for this woman, as I do anyone filled with hate, I think she needs to be stopped from making a fortune off that hate and being given such a large platform. Freedom of speech, yes. Pay her for it, no.

I agree with your take on this hideous and stupid woman who rarely gets her facts straight. On the other hand,I do believe in 'know thine enemy' just so you can be aware of what that enemy is up to. Unfortunately, she has a following, but so do all verbal diarrhoea demagogues. Bile indeed.

She's more than vile, she's malignant. It this U.S. it's difficult to get across the idea that free speech doesn't necessarily mean providing the platform for it.

fucking ann coulter, i would so love to tag her in the back of the head with a baseball bat. i think she is so inordinately evil because she is so intensely ugly. or is she so ugly because she is so evil? i am not really sure, but someone should remove her from this existance. i would be glad to do it...

There was someone else who had opinions like this...now, what was his name? H-something. Started with H. Used to chew up carpets when he got upset, I understand.

A good point on 'know thy enemy'. The fact that she does have a following is the terrifying part to me... it is so much easier to believe the bile and hate than it is to think..

thank you for coming by.

true enough. I would never support anything that endangers free speech, but I do wish that the people who support this woman would THINK.


thank you for coming by.

As lovely a scenario as that is... best not, I prefer you out of jail and I don't want you to have to explain it to the boys. I believe her looks ARE indeed affected by her hate.

thank you for coming by.

what part of this rant didn't you agree with Lady?

(curious, I don't listen to Ann)

I must say I wasn't crazy about the Jews need to become "perfected" - to become Christians. Of course I take exception to the argument that Christians are the only ones who have it right, not being a Christian myself. I have listened to her - back when she began speaking out, because I could not believe she was popular on certain university campuses; and her condemnation of the wives of 9/11 victims who insisted on the congressional investigation. Since then if you read CNN or the Post or the NYT, it's hard NOT to hear her, but I am encouraged that you do NOT:-)

Ann Coulter is the face (and voice) of everything that is wrong with America. I find her extremely repugnant.

It shows in her face doesn't it?

thank you for coming by.

You are right to draw attention to this, Lady M. I've heard of her before and now I am convinced she is mad.

Lady, being a Christian myself, I do believe with my heart and soul that the only way to heaven is 'our' way.

If she truly believes that (and I don't know if she does or not) then her comments were not out of order for her; every religion believes it is the truth, if you don't believe it of your religion, you don't believe your religion.

(not talking about your specifically since I don't know what you believe :)

I have read the controversies from Ann in the past on blogs and such (saying faggot on tv, etc.) and think she is doing exactly what she wants (since with each controversy her sales skyrocket); I think the main problem isn't the people that agree with her, but the fact that the 'other side' will give her all this free advertising every time she wants to sell a book.
