Hahaha!

I worry about putting "Coulter" in the name of this thread though. It might garner unwanted interest.

Not from me, of course. I'm only posting here to get updates.

I'm thinking about voting for McKinney.

Home of the independent thinkers, here. No bashing of Republicans/Democrats -- let's just have a good debate. Please be careful not to use a broad brush by saying typical things such as: "Republicans are ruining the country" or "Democrats are ruining the country". Let's try to stay away from that garbage b/c that's what it is. Takes no thinking just to trash the other with broad statements. Rational.

I really don't know anyone who likes that woman on either side of the table. She is unique to say the least. It just went to well with "Cackling" I couldn't resist.

OMG! Terri, you rock darling!! I love the idea of not using gross generalizations (post #3). Now let's see how quickly Rational gets his cute little behind over here to tell us all what's what.

I have my own thoughts of Anne Coulter's psychological issues.

Although I'm not really on either side (Dem or Repub) of the table, I find her writing very humorous. Does she push the boundaries and skewer people. Yes. Sometimes unfairly. No doubt. However, in my opinion she is a very talented writer. Just my 2 cents...

I agree. She is slightly misguided, but hilarious nontheless.

Ooh! I smell a diagnosis coming!

Tell us, Dr. Angelique! PLEASE!!!!

Personally I think she's one of the "reptilian humanoids" who secretly rule the world. Have you guys heard this theory???

But does she have to use her power for evil???

Some of the stuff she spews is just so intolerant and vile! And most of it is just for shock value and attention.

Shock value and attention is how she earns her living, much as some on the ideological opposite side (e.g., Michael Moore). I don't always agree with either, but they each have some skills.

As for evil... I'm not sure you could say that when she unfairly knocks someone it is because she is evil or does it for evil purposes. Unless, of course, you've seen the 666 behind her ear? LOL

Okay and this is exactly the point we shoudl discuss. Relativeness. You say she uses her power for evil. However when the leftist leaning media stations either do the same as she does, write the same types of inciting opinions as she does, etc...you dont call them to the table and take issue with them. Its again a media and perception problem and the media has told us its okay to pick on the right wingers, their ideals, etc, its okay to lie, to lie through omission (which they do so often on the "news" stations) etc...but Ann does it from the other side and she becomes a focal point. This is my issue. If others can right slanderous garbage and the leftist liberal people who think they are so FN smart can giggle about it, how come they cant see the same in her writings?

One thing you can't take away from her is that she is a very good writer, she makes you think. Unfortunately one of Ann's problems is that she is very smart (again, its not debatable, you may not like her but you cant say she isnt...or that would just make you look stupid), and so she uses very heavy doses of salt when making her points, its intended because again, to her defense, she assumes smart people are reading her columns and can certainly tell where she is just having fun or trying to incite things. She assumes wrongly of course because there are quite a few knuckle dragging liberals who "think" they are smart but in fact are just morons and they take issue. Then you have the liberal opportunist haters, who know dang well what she is doing, understand it and use it against her anyway because, again, they can then spoon feed it any way they want to the liberal knuckle dragging morons of the US of A and get them up in a riot about it.

If you are going to crucify Ann you should also do the same to Arriana (Angelique, certainly you dont think that woman is straight in the head do you? I mean, look at her past and who she married for one thing). Ted Rall, he can rant and pi ss from a roof on republicans and no one even shrugs, but Ann, she uses colorful language and look out, they throw every name in the book at her. OOhh, that brings up another point. Why is it when we call some people names its so wrong and shows our imaturity, but talk about Ann and anything is fair game?

Ugh! I really really really don't want to have a political discussion with you, lover!!!

You make very valid points but this stuff just upsets me too much to write rationally and then I get all mad and I storm off in a huff and all that.

Yes. Ann Coulter is smart.

I'm not a fan of her or Michael Moore or Huffington or anyone else with an extreme "shock and awe" MO.

I don't wanna fight with you, Rational!!!!

Why don't we just skip forward to the make-up BJ????

LOL, then you agree that Ann isn't the only one and when someone mentions her name in distaste you will say "well the other side has several Ann's that we dont hear so much bad stuff about but we know they are there so fair is fair" right???

Dropping pants

Okay, Im ready:D

Did I ever say that she's the only one? No. There are plenty of other vile, intolerant asshats out there. On both sides.

I'm not gonna defend ANY of them and I still can't believe that you would cheer her on.

I really need to get out of this thread because I KNOW that I can't argue politics rationally.

But whatever, let's get down to it!

She's dead on and HOTTER than any of the hags on the left!

She got it all covered.

By the why lefties, the Messiah is down in the polls :(. This is the beginning of the great decline! Get your sharp objects out and ready to do the right thing. Let see some adult abortions happening out there.

I am fairly sure she has an eating disorder, she looks anorexic to me. People with eating disorders tend to be very angry.
Of course, most of what she says is to get a response and make lots of money.
And she definitely does not have object constancy. No wonder I only listen to NPR.

<SWOON> I love it when you get passionate with me Rational.

I agree with your points. I could go on and on about cognitive dissonance, object constancy, maturity, etc. around people who are only able to see one side of any argument. I find it tedious in the extreme because life is complex as are all the issues about which these people fight (only to get ratings). I cannot understand why, given that politicians are hired by you and me, the taxpayers, they can't work together to come up with solutions, instead of encouraging these meaningless, pointless arguments of who is right and who is wrong.

Yep, me too on Rational. I love pulling his chain. I'm actually a pretty independent thinker but lately he's getting all bashing the Democrats. I'm starting to think he's not all that independent -- which he admits to in a way.

You've written quite a lot and I only got to the first two line and I'm startng this point. STOP! Please stop with the leftist media comments and point to specifics, Rational. You're starting to sound like people I don't like and I like you.
