Ann Coulter: Time Mag Cover Girl
Drudge Report ^ | 04/17/2005 | Staff

Posted on 04/17/2005 6:13:56 AM PDT by Hawk44

Ann Coulter epitomizes the way politics is now discussed on the airwaves, where opinions must come violently fast and cause as much friction as possible, TIME’s John Cloud claims in this week’s cover story.

No one, right or left, delivers the required apothegmatic commentary on the world with as much glee or effectiveness as Coulter, Cloud writes (on newsstands Monday, April 18).

It is almost impossible to watch her and not be sluiced into rage or elation, depending on your views. As a congressional staff member 10 years ago, Coulter used to help write the nation’s laws.

Now she is far more powerful: she helps set the nation’s tone. TIME’s Cloud had unprecedented access to Coulter.

He goes more than 6,000 words.

And he appears to come away liking her.

"On TV or in person, you can trust that Coulter will speak from her heart. The officialdom of punditry, so full of phonies and dullards, would suffer without her humor and fire. Which is not to say you don't want to shut her up occasionally," Cloud notes.

Ann is only hot like an average girl in a Ferrari is hot. She IS above average in looks, but if she didn't lean so far to the right, everyone here wouldn't have given her the time of day.

And I worry about her health re: eating disorders. Not only would she be a lot closer to being goddess-quality hot with 15-20 more pounds, she looks like she's about 12 months removed from Auschwitz. I hope it's truly metabolic, and not something psychological.

It really does not read like a hit-piece. However, I also don't really think it gets far under her skin. He doesn't apparently ask what I think would have been more get-to-the-heart questions, probably because he can't.

These will be used to hurt her:

"most of what I say, I say to amuse myself and amuse my friends. I don't spend a lot of time thinking about anything beyond that."

Coulter told me that when her editor suggests cutting a line from a column to save space, "I'll ask him, 'But is it funny?' And if he says it's funny, I'll cut an actual fact [instead]."

As with Limbaugh, the best They can do is minimize her as a self-centered joker, no one to take seriously. Not like thoughtful, nuanced liberals, who really ought to be making the big decisions for us all.

Nonsense.

Ann is 43 years old.

She looks 25, maybe 30 on the outside.

The simple fact is how you age is one of the best indicators of health, mental and physical.

Well, it won't hurt her feelings, if that's what you mean.

But liberals get/got nowhere saying "Ann Coulter! She's a demon! I hate her!" Just ups her sales.

But if they can say, "Ah, yes -- Ann Coulter. Very amusing. A bit over the top sometimes, but it's quite a clever little act she's got there."

Hates is better than dismissed.

I saw Ann in person, at the March For Justice in DC in '98. She is very attractive but the woman is TOO thin. Whether it is deliberate or just the way she is, I don't know, but if she would gain a few pounds she would be even better looking.

It's the whole package that works for Ms. Coulter. She's attractive, she's got a tongue/pen like a scalpel and a killer sense of humor. That is not average Coop.

Ahh now you've done it! The poor girl is going to have to cry herself to sleep knowing that such a fine catch is not going to marry her.

Bet that is one of the top selling Time's in a while. Ann Rox!!!

I'm not talking about "fat" women. I'm talking about someone who appears emaciated at times.

But your comment does ring true to a point. To each his own........

How old she appears has nothing to do with being unhealthily thin. Two different issues altogether.

Though, as I stated above - to each his own. I don't have any "preferred body types" amongst women I see, but the thought of being able to see ribs, shoulder blades, hip bones, etc is kind of a turn-off for me. You can be trim and still not appear anorexic.

There's no doubt it's a package deal. If it were looks alone, she wouldn't stand a chance.

To an extent, it's no different when you find the person you spend your life with. Is my wife beautiful? I think so. Is she Penthouse model beautiful? No. But she's intelligent, responsible, funny - and she loves me back. Like you said - it's a package deal.

Anyway, I certainly agree that she (AC) is one helluva woman. My main issue is only with her unnaturally thin appearance. And if it's truly metabolic/natural - then good on her, and viva la difference!

Amen!

I think that MM is WAY hotter than AC.

But, as Dennis Miller used to say: That's only my opinion. I could be wrong......

Since we've mentioned Michelle, don't the same posting rules apply....?

Looks are a matter of taste, the ideas of both of these women have me salivating...then, if you add the photos...well, that's for another website that charges monthly fees.

You miss the point entirely.

At issue is how old she appears relative to her age. Age is not only chronological, it is also physical and mental. And the relative rates of aging are an excellent indicator of both mental and physical health.

The simple fact is that she looks much younger than her actual age, dramatically so. Indeed, few people seem to do as well. I know I haven't. I'd bet you look every one of your years as well.

Now, for starters, I am a huge Ann fan. I even bring up the issue of how right-wingers in publishing have stalled her career. You can only find her columns on her site or in Human Events, while that "dullard" Krauthammer gets lots more status writing the same dreary old thing--unless he's dead wrong, like when he supported McVain.

National Review, Weekly Standard--and other conservative pubs will not give Ann the time of day.

Ann is extravagantly good-looking, but she does not look to be in her mid-twenties. The photos are "managed", and she goes heavy on the makeup for TV. I invite you to buy "Is It True What They Say About Ann?"--you'll see the makeup in process. On her good days, she can pass for her mid-thirties. There comes a time when a thin woman is forty, and she'd better get just a tad of padding or she's gonna look gaunt. Where it starts to show first is the collar-bones, and Ann generally .
