crap.

Bill Maher was not saying he wished that Cheney had been assassinated, and there was a thread in here about that precisely.

also, do you see the difference between someone who has their own comedy/talk show versus someone who's speaking at a Conservative Political Action Conference where presidential candidates were present and she was a keynote speaker?

Coulter gets the scrutiny because she begs and pleads for it.

Ann Coulter is disgusting. She calls the Democrats hypocrites for saying they like Jews but not outrightly supporting Israel. I thought the Dems have been doing that for decades, except for Jimmy Carter, and that has been the problem -- they support the Israeli occupation.

I guess, since people like her can't distinguish between ethnicities in states, then Ann Coulter must really HATE Arabs/Muslims because she seems to hate those states. I actually think she does.

Opposing Israel's aggressive policies doesn't, in any way, resemble Hitlerian anti-semitism or discrimination in any way. The legacy of the Holocaust has become so intertwined with how we treat Israel that it's led US policy in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict to be on the side of cruel and unjustified oppression, which has resulted in terrorism.

Ann Coulter should be sent to Abu Graib to think about the kinds of attitudes and ideas she's been trying to unleash upon the world in the name of sticking it to "liberals". The woman should grow up.

Very good point, and one few Americans have the courage to make for fear of being called a bigot or an anti-Semite.

I found the video that Diamond posted of Ann Coulter "explaining herself" fascinating.

Here was Ann in a friendly environment, speaking to someone who is not actively opposing her. It really highlighted what her schtick is. It quickly becomes clear that she's not a legitmate pundit, and that she relies on hyperbole and insults. Throughout the interview she would drop various insults and ridiculous statements about the Democrats and liberals etc. It was like she didn't know how to do anything else. You got the sense you couldn't really have a civil, intelligent discussion with this woman about the issues.

The problem I have with Coulter and others like her is that they present themselves as legitimate commentators on the issue rather than the politcial entertainers and satirists that they are.

Her take on why the country can't stand Bush is that no one like his stand on immigration. It's not the war the country is upset about (he's done an "excellent" job of handling that, according to her), it's immigration. Clueless!

I think the better question is why is this woman repeatedly invited to TV shows and tolerated?

I can't stand the sight of this woman. I've never seen anyone so hate-filled, self-righteous, arrogant, and as completely unintelligent as Ann Coulter. She does nothing but talk others down through fear tactics and junior high insults. She doesn't know how to debate, she can only shout her opinions to drown out those of others. To me, that only shows insecurity and knowing that what she says and does is completely wrong. I wouldn't want her speaking for me if I was a Conservative. She's like the political Paris Hilton: a skinny blonde who's contributed nothing to society but posing for a camera. Paris' is literally standing there and looking cute; Coulter is masquerading as an intelligent woman with valid views. She's cynical, she's calculating, and she's not worth the ground she walks on . I've never said that about another human being. I hated saying it, but I know no other way of putting it. Some of the things she's said about people, and groups of people have almost made me cry. She sickens me. She's nothing but evil from the core of her being. I don't even know how to analyze her, so I'll let her own words speak for her.

I will also hold on to my favorite quote about Ann. It comes courtesy of SNL with Darrell Hammond playing Chris Matthews talking to Amy Poheler playing Coulter.
"I'd call you a media whore, but I'm afraid that would be offensive to whores."

guys
do you REALLY KNOW FOR SURE if john edwards isn't a "faggot"??

she might have insider information, guys.

it's good to know there's someone out there willing to weed out all the "faggots" in politics for people such as myself who don't have the time or interest to follow politics without commentary.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Conservative commentator and best-selling author Ann Coulter may find herself in the midst of a controversy for comments Monday suggesting America would be better if everyone was Christian.

Asked by CNBC host Donny Deutsch what the U.S. looks like in her dreams, Coulter said it would look like the Republican National Convention in 2004

"People were happy,” she said, according to a transcript provided to CNN by CNBC. “They're Christian. They're tolerant. They defend America."

When Deutsch responded, "It would be better if we were all Christian?" Coulter said "Yeah."

Deutsch, himself Jewish, continued to press Coulter on her remarks, asking, "We should just throw Judaism away and we should all be Christians then?"

"Yeah," Coulter responded, adding "Well, it's a lot easier. It's kind of a fast track."

"You can't possibly believe that," Deutsch responded. “You can’t possibly. You’re too educated.”

"Do you know what Christianity is?" Coulter replied. "See, we believe your religion, but you have to obey. We have the fast track program."

Later in the interview Deutsch asked Coulter if she doesn't want any Jews in the world, Coulter responded, "No, we think — we just want Jews to be perfected, as they say."

"Wow, you didn't really say that, did you," Deutsch said.

"Yeah, no,” Coulter replied. “That’s what Christianity is. We believe the Old Testament, but ours is more like Federal Express. You have to obey laws. We know we're all sinners."

Deutsch said he was personally offended.

"No. I'm sorry. It is not intended to be," she said. "I don't think you should take it that way, but that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews. We believe the Old Testament. As you know from the Old Testament, God was constantly getting fed up with humans for not being able to live up to all the laws. What Christians believe — this is just a statement of what the New Testament is — is that that's why Christ came and died for our sins. Christians believe the Old Testament. You don't believe our testament."

Deutsch continued to call Coulter's comments anti-semetic.

"No, no, — I don't want you being offended by this," she responded. "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, [the late Rev. Jerry] Falwell himself said that, but you have to follow laws. Ours is "Christ died for our sins." 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."
