Olberman.

Hoo-ray!

The thing about Ann Coulter is, people know she's nucking futs yet they keep dragging her out to hear her speak. You have to realize you're just getting her 'message' (whatever that might be) out to a wider and wider audience by doing that.

Who publishes her books, anyway? Maybe people who hate Ann Coulter (a.k.a. 'sane people') should petition them to drop her?

This woman is insane, more than Bill O. You know, I think that if Coulter and Bill O were to mate, they apocalypse would come!

Man, watching clips like this just gives me a headache. This is almost as bad as most Fox News split-screen debates -- everybody talking at once, nobody making an ounce of sense.

I can't honestly think that Ann Coulter is sincere in more than a small fraction of the venomous and inflamatory rhetoric that spews from her gaping maw.

She is a media whore and what better way for a whore to sell herself than to scream the most inane and ignorant comments imaginable. Shit, she wouldn't sell books nearly as well if she made sense.

Keith is on a rampage! Go for the goal line.First Bill O and now Ann C. Bless you Keith.

Perhaps if Ann could get a husband she'd understand how the 9/11 widows felt. Of course in her state it's probably illegal for two penis endowed people to marry.

Because Coulter has never disengeniously conflated disagreement with the war and antipathy for the troops...

i don't even get worked up about anything she, Bill O, or Michael Moore or anyone of their ilk says. They are all just pandering to the extremely unreasonable factions of their respective parties. I am a registered republican and I wouldn't be caught dead watching fox news and any sensible liberal I know recognizes Moore for the blowhard he is. People like this do nothing for rational political debate in this country. I think they are best made fun of or ignored all together.

I'm a godless liberal, and I feel fine.

Average_Joe, her book is a best seller. Still think that a lot of Americans aren't stupid?

And the interesting thing, Average_Joe, is that the kind of crap that she says is exactly the kind of crap that you say. I would think that you would be one of her staunchest allies. Are you sure you aren't one of those stupid Americans who bought her book?

ANN COULTER QUOTES:

On Canada "[Canadians] better hope the United States does not roll over one night and crush them. They are lucky we allow them to exist on the same continent." - Hannity & Colmes, November 30, 2004 "Canada has become trouble recently." "It's always the worst Americans who go there." "We could have taken them over so easy. But I only want the western part, with the ski areas, the cowboys, and the right wingers. They're the only good parts of Canada." After being asked why she hates Canada: "Because they speak French." *** We've got to attack France. *** Re: the 9/11 widows who pushed for investigations into the attacks: “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.” *** Democrats couldn't care less if people in Indiana hate them. But if Europeans curl their lips, liberals can't look at themselves in the mirror. *** Liberals become indignant when you question their patriotism, but simultaneously work overtime to give terrorists a cushion for the next attack and laugh at dumb Americans who love their country and hate the enemy *** My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building. *** We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war. *** Liberals hate America, they hate "flag-wavers," they hate abortion opponents, they hate all religions except Islam (post 9/11). Even Islamic terrorists don't hate America like liberals do. They don't have the energy. If they had that much energy, they'd have indoor plumbing by now."” *** Whether they are defending the Soviet Union or bleating for Saddam Hussein, liberals are always against America. They are either traitors or idiots, and on the matter of America's self-preservation, the difference is irrelevant. *** “I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.” *** “The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man’s dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet — it’s yours. That’s our job: drilling, mining and stripping. Sweaters are the anti-Biblical view. Big gas-guzzling cars with phones and CD players and wet bars — that’s the Biblical view.” *** “It would be a much better country if women did not vote. *** “Perhaps we could put aside our national, ongoing, post-9/11 Muslim butt-kissing contest and get on with the business at hand: Bombing Syria back to the stone age and then permanently disarming Iran.” ** About juvenile delinquents: “I have to say I’m all for public flogging.”

Pardon my French but she is such a fucking hag. Why does our culture pay any attention to these trolls?

I just can't take her seriously. My brain won't allow it. I consider her to be like Colbert in that she doesn't believe the majority of what she's saying...she only says it to make the opinion look ridiculous. In Coulter's case, however, no one is laughing...and rightfully so.

If she is honest, however, she's beyond insane. She's so far right wing she's about to fall off of the plane...of existence.

Why is Ann Coulter on the best seller list? Why is she so popular? She is not just a troll. She represents the views of millions of Americans and represents the direction that our country is taking. We have become so accustomed to the coarseness represented by FOX news, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, and Ann Coulter, that even people who consider themselves moderates, such as Average_Joe, can be heard repeating their philosophy. These people are not anomalies. Their views have become mainstream.

"Ann Coulter the high-priestess of the Right is releasing her new book, "Godless: The Church Of Liberalism" on 6/6/06." http://ex-donkey.mu.nu/archives/cat_conservatives.php

Her autographed hardcover book has sold out http://premierecollectibles.us/product.cfm?id=34&source=coulter

Hannity: "I share most of your views" http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,198549,00.html

It is not just a few people who agree with the views of people like O'Reilly and Hannity and Coulter.

O'Reilly 2.7 million viewers Hannity & Colmes 2.2 million viewers

Rush Limbaugh 20 million listeners

It is a sad comment on American culture that this obviously deranged person has so many fans. But, I have met so many people who think, act, and talk like her, Hannity, O'Reilly, and Limbaugh, that it seems clear that these people actually represent a significant percentage of the American population.

It is hard to believe, but many Americans suck this stuff up with nary a question.

It's a kind of political soap opera, with soap opera level scripts, an strange soap opera characters whose emotional outbursts are what their root audience tunes in for.

For the most part, it is not a deep thinking audience. Basic logic just isn't part of their living tool chest. It got buried under the Twinkie wrappers and back issues of TV Guide.

The very typical thing about Coulter's point is that it's only the liberal wives that she has a beef about ("Not the one's I'm talking about...").

It's also false that people can't criticize them (Duh, you just did), and of course it's totally tasteless to say that they are enjoying their husband's deaths. Coulter's now in a club with Moussaoui as the only people to so publicly dismiss the grief of 9/11 victims and get away with it.

Still, she's said a lot worse. She's joked about assassinating a president and defended the Oklahoma City bombing (in fact wished she McVey had bombed more targets). She should be persona non grata on every talk show in the country and yet she has an open invitation to them all.

I don't have a problem with 9/11 spouses as 'moral celebrities' of the kind that carry some weight in a campaign commercial. But I actually agree that the 9/11 widows and widowers should not be the standard of what is good anti-terrorism policy (sometimes they have acted like they should be). Sometimes something similar happens with victims of crime who become over-zealously in favor of cracking down on suspicious behavior.

It's amazing that someone can work his/her way up the NY Times best seller list with subjects ranging from pres. Clinton's blow jobs to 9/11 widows as political whores. While I'm glad Olbermann denounced her, he's preaching to his choir and she to hers. Our public has a ways to go to get back to in-depth, rational discussion of issues.

Is Coulter really human, anyway? She seems more reptilian to me.

OK; sorry for the cheap shot...but STILL.

People like Coulter, O'Reilly, and Limabaugh seem to be like teenagers egging each other on to greater and greater acts of outrage. I suspect that some of them consider their acts to be a form of parody, or may have at one time but have come to take themselves seriously. But each step coarsens public discourse and damages the social fabric, encouraging people to hold simplistic views of the world and to demonize anyone who disagrees with them. Centuries of social capital are being squandered here. It will all come to violence eventually. We can only hope that that violence comes in a sudden plainly visible but small explosion, rather than a general steady escalation. An identifiable outcome that can be traced back to this garbage may cause people to change course, but a slow escalation will leave us like a frog who sits quietly while the water comes to a boil and cooks us alive.

reading many of her quotes I think they are uttered purely for shock value.

gypsy sister "Our public has a ways to go to get back to in-depth, rational discussion of issues."

that is such a great point, people seem to listen to these people (about anyone on fox news/michael moore) and just regurgitate their crap line for line.

I've read this from somewhere.

Buy just 1 copy of Ann Coulter's latest book. Scanned it and then upload it into the Internet or send it to everyone.

Hopefully that will stop her from profiteering by making some poor widows the latest whipping boys of the rights.

And talking of being a millionaire and shutting up, she is the one who profiteering as a partisan hack, not these widows.

Was Tucker actually arguing with her? Did I see that right?

Yeah Olberman, it's easy to take potshots at her video image. After watching her wipe up the floor with Matt Lauer, you don't have the balls talk to her in person do you? No--just vent spleen, and launch ad hominem attacks, which is what passes for argument in liberal-land.
