No, just a JOKE about Coulter and the way she is. She's an attrative looking woman it's just when she's speak her conservative babble that I can't stand her
I don't know what made you say that I say the same thing to all women that disagree with me, bit odd to say that

It was a reference to her being so "uptight". Being a conservative does not make one uptight.

It sounded like a disagreement with opinions turned into an attack on character.

Yea, wrong term to use. I guess I equate conservatism to being uptight. Other people in here a calling her "crazy" so I would say that's an attack of her character also
But again it was a joke, what else can I say

And this from the person who said (about Michael Moore):

I take real offense at your definition of MM as a POLITICAL WACKO.

Ann Coulter is to conservatism as Howard Stern is to liberalism.

Take that as you will.

"Slander" is at work, but I haven't read it. I really don't like ideological polemics, either liberal or conservative. We also have a book of Michael Moore's and I haven't read it either.

Well! Fox bashing! My favourite!

Ok, that blonde woman who talks out the side of her mouth? Aside from what she says, the way she talks just really really annoys me.

And whatshisname Hannity is without a doubt the stupidest person to ever be employed by a 'news' network. His sidekick isn't much better.


My main issue with Fox isn't that it's right leaning, it's just how dumbed down it is. It's like you are watching a parody, but it's not. It's scary that people watch it as a serious news source.

FOX News is pretty much a television version of conservative talk radio. It has less to do with "news" as it does with "commentary."

melon, I might be misunderstanding you, but Howard Stern is quite conservative.

Sigh...

Irrespective of reality (Stern ran for political office once as a Libertarian, probably as a joke), Stern is perceived by the public and his detractors as "liberal." But he's a fanatic, whose rants are more "entertainment" than news. I would argue that, at the other end of the political spectrum, Coulter is the same--a fanatic, whose rants are more "entertainment" than news, although I think she certainly takes herself more seriously than Stern does.

The illustration was done to distinguish "wackos" like Ann Coulter from "intelligent" liberal ranters like Michael Moore.
