Ann positions herself for another best seller

I am beginning to realize what "crazy like a fox" really means. If you are prepping to release a book, what better way to get media buzz than to offend an entire religion. From a recent interview, Ann sparked controversy aka media attention by suggesting Jews just need some perfecting and they'll be as good as us christians. From a media release:

Coulter's comments came during Monday's episode of CNBC's The Big Idea.
Host Donny Deutsch asked Coulter what her ideal picture of America looked like and she recalled the 2004 Republican convention in New York City.

"People were happy. They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America," she said.

Deutsch asked, "It would be better if we were all Christian?" Coulter replied "yes," and reitereated her declaration again later in the interview, although she denied wanting to wipe all Jews off the map.

"We just want Jews to be perfected, as they say," Coulter said.

Deutsch, a practicing Jew, said he was personally offended by Coulter's remark, and she tried to defend herself.

"I don't want you being offended by this. This is what Christians consider themselves, because our testament is the continuation of your testament. You know that. So we think Jews go to heaven. I mean, [Rev. Jerry] Falwell himself said that, but you have to follow laws. Ours is 'Christ died for our sins,'" Coulter said. "We consider ourselves perfected Christians. For me to say that for you to become a Christian is to become a perfected Christian is not offensive at all."

Another Catholic group blasted Coulter's remarks, saying they "show profound ignorance of both religion and American history."

I have to say I found this Coulter quote to be even more incredible considering some of her female supporters (Hi Denise)

Ann Coulter: "If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat [sic] president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen."

What do you think Ann adds to legitimate political debate? Is this just comedy for profit?

Think of her as Andrew Dice Clay without as much class.

"Think of her as Andrew Dice Clay without as much class."

Andrew Dice Clay, known for his profane comedy, was banned for life from MTV.

At the outset of his career, he was an actor who appeared primarily in small roles in low-budget teen sex romps. He boosted his career by subverting traditional nursery rhymes, turning them into sordid sexual encounters.

The Day the Laughter Died "consisted mostly of audience-baiting, and deliberately unfunny and scatalogical musings on life."

Chock-full of his trademark raunch, "Filth" was criticized for being too much about shock and not including enough strong material. Around this time, Clay fell out of favor with longtime friend and supporter Howard Stern.

Another "highlight" of his career: "Face Down, *** Up"

In 2003, the foul-mouthed and abrasive Clay angrily used several vile profanities on a live CNN cable news program during an interview.

Clay is "one in a long line of comedic performers whose material stretched the boundaries of decency and good taste to their breaking point . . . . Clay's routines did not evolve out of pointed social satire or trenchant political commentary, but merely a desire to be as lewd and shocking as humanly possible. Racist, homophobic, and misogynistic, his rise to fame was meteoric, and ultimately -- despite retaining a fervent core audience comprised almost entirely of young, white males -- his fall from grace was just as swift.

"Still, Clay touched an obvious nerve among fans; angry and arrogant, he tapped into a rabid, blue-collar following similarly disenfranchised by the slowly increasing cultural acceptance afforded women, minorities and homosexuals." [Aren't they part of the Democrat base, too?]

Now, what were you saying about class (elegance of style, taste, and manner)? Puzzled

"Birds of a feather flock together, and so will pigs and swine," Grandma always said (the vernacular for “Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye allwayes together”).


The happy life is thought to be one of excellence; now an excellent life requires exertion, and does not consist in amusement. ~ Aristotle

The real character of a man is found out by his amusements.

You can't live on amusement. It is the froth on water -- an inch deep and then the mud.

Amusement is the happiness of those who cannot think. ~ Alexander Pope

(Amuse: from the Latin: to stare stupidly; the opposite of muse: to think or think about carefully and at length)

Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable. ~ Goethe

I chose him for comparison deliberately. If Ann puts her mind to it, I sincerely believe she can aspire to rise to his level.

Loved you're "birds of a feather" quote. You are flocking with the Republicans Clay and Coulter. Enjoy the company.

Worst comedian that I have ever seen or heard!
She is downright nasty, filthy, gross, and shamefull!
She says it because many of the right wing believe every word of it!
And they and the middle conservatives buy the books.
I wish that guy would have hit her mouth with that pie.

why anyone chooses to listen to the likes of Coulter, Hannity, Borts, Imus or Fox News in general.

How did people get so stupid that they require a cheerleader to tell them not only how but what to think?

I just can’t fathom how anybody could listen to such left or right leaning babble.

Has the ability to have an independent thought abandoned some people? (Independent as in created or arrived at via ones own thought process, not any political affiliation)

Wouldn’t it be better for everyone if they were all locked in a room and the air sucked out?

I used to listen to the Kimmer show - for entertainment.
