Regardless words are powerful.

The constitution would be nothing without words. People are moved by lyrics and books. A friendly 'hello' may make a stranger's day. Just like a hurtful slur can hurt.

Don't ever dismiss the power of words.
When I was in high school, I used to say really liberal and mean stuff (ie, im pro choice, im pro gay marriage, the pope is disposable because if he dies they'll just "hire" a new pope and all will be well, etc. You have to remember here and Honduras people are a lot more close minded) just to get a rise out of my classmates. I knew it would piss them off and I knew they would get worked up about stuff that wouldn't EVER get resolved by arguing with me. Even if they did manage to make me apologize what difference would it make??

Basically, what I'm trying to say is she's getting you worked up and you're letting her do it. What difference will it make if Ann Coulter apologizes? Will homophobia go away? Will people stop using the word "faggot" to offend others? Not at all.

So, ignore her and her little show and you will win.

Mock the devil...

Words are powerful only to an extent. Depends on where they come from and who is listening. If people ignore Ann Coulter except her base and she finds that she isn't getting a rise out of her enemy, she loses her effectiveness and power. The more media coverage and attention she gets, the more powerful she becomes.

Ann Coulter is a nobody who is still trying to make a buck off 9/11.

I ignore a lot of people whose words mean nothing to me because I do not value or respect their opinion so their words mean nothing. It took a lifetime of discrimination from small minded idiots to come to that realization. And upon doing so, they have no control over me or my life.

She's a boil on the ass of society.
Marry me.

You mean the guy who told a senator to "fuck off," spoken right on the Senate floor?

Considerng what I'm accustomed to Australian politicians saying to and about each other, I found Cheney's "fuck off" to be one of the least shocking things he's said.

And with regards to Ann Coulter, I find her existence to actually be useful: if anyone actually takes her seriously and agrees with her, you can very easily just write off what they say and not bother wasting your time listening to them! Quick way to identify idiots, in other words, and from the original post, it seems Romney is evidently quite an idiot.

Good point, she is an excellent barometer for stupidity.

I agree a certain point with the rest of your post, but you still ignore the power of words overall.

But I'm a little confused about this part above... Why are you grouping "liberal" and "mean"?

I agree, like I said, she's a boil, but she obviously still has a pretty big fanbase. So what do we do, to make them realize and ignore her? Because until that happens, they are still powerful.

It wasn't really grouping the words.

It's rather that in the eyes of the classmates those were mean things.

I think it's almost as evil that Romney said hearing from her is a good thing. But I'm not surprised at all that he said that, as sad as it is to say. Actually it's more evil, because we already expect crap like that from Coulter.

I used mean stuff to say and liberal stuff to say and they both got my classmates riled up.

To be honest, I didn't quite figure out what words to use when I posted that... (English is my second language and sometimes it shows. )

One day, I think fairly soon, Ann Coulter is going to fall hard, and she's going to have to go on the Surreal Life and live with Howard K. Stern to make a buck, and it's going to be beautiful.
