Thanks to a tip from ann coulter official chat... But in person, Coulter is more likely to offer jokes than fury. For instance, you might ask her to name her historical antecedents in the conservative movement, and shell burst forth, Im Attila the Hun, and then break into gales of laughter so forceful you smell the Nicorette. Genghis Khan! So finally, I asked that she be serious...

She is quite possibly the most divisive figure in the public eye. But love her or hate her, you do not know the real Ann Coulter
By John Cloud
Anne Coulter and I were well into a bottle of white Bordeauxand I believe she was chewing her fourth piece of Nicorettewhen it happened. From what little I knew of hermainly her propensity for declamations such as liberals love America like O.J. loved NicoleI thought it impossible for Coulter to blush. Many of her fans would later tell me it was her fearlessness they admired, her fully unburdened sense of outrage against liberalism, against anyone left of Joseph McCarthy (whom Coulter flattered in her best-selling book Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism).

(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
I wonder if he's a FReeper.
I tried to read the article, but was starting to gag by the middle of page 2 and quit. The sense is Coulter is the conservative b!t@h the left loves to smack. Let them think that, but she is much more and speaks the truth in plain terms.
Coulter accurately described partial birth abortion and gave that as an example as to how the left supports evil. The Time reporter then sneers, The idea that she doesnt coarsen our culture and make it more difficult to speak complicated truths is nonsense.
Gee, I wonder why Time decided not to show Hillary's legs?
the author was quoting a critic. you're missing out on a pretty good article.
unless, of course, you think ann is God incarnate.
Given the cover photo, I was expecting to see a nasty hit piece. It was a surprisingly even-handed item.
Ping for later
It isn't a hit piece and includes some good information about Anne's background - but it's Ann seen through the MSM filter.
They quote some mysterious conservative to say she's a liability. And the tone throughout the article is
"Coulter is so smart and funny - yet attacks liberals - is she just a dishonest hack/clown trying to make a buck, or is she nuts/evil?"
The reporter was quoting a snide comment made by someone else.
I read the article last night, so I'll be paraphrasing. Cloud said that many people misunderstand Coulter's wit, that they misunderstand that she uses humor to make points about facts.
He cites a few instances of her critics claiming she lied, pointing out that Ann was right and they are wrong. He says that many of the people trying to play gotcha with Ann take her words out of context.
He begins the article with the question of whether she's sincere or just a hack, and ends with the firm conclusion that AC is a woman who believes strongly in what she's doing.
It really is a pretty fair article which paints Coulter in an overall positive light. There were a couple of instances I thought the author wasn't able to "get" it, but he didn't hit her over the head with that.
The cover is clever in its "fair and balanced she isn't" message because of the imbalance of her body in the photograph. Nonetheless, the photograph shows a very feminine, attractive woman in a smart pose (and very smart shoes).
The article is surprisingly balanced, given the source. When reading it, my feathers were ruffled by some allogations against Coulter, but other comments make her out to be the intellectual charmer she is.
That Ann Coulter is seen as polarizing by a number of conservatives doesn't hurt our agenda, really. In my mind, there's a huge difference betweent the shrill butch Hillary or the raghead Barbara Boxer and the attractive and smart Ann Coulter.
I actually enjoyed that article, amazing!
Interesting in that it's obvious the author likes Coulter quite a bit, and it shows in his rather favorable treatment of her. Makes up for the cover pic! lol
Aside from the Nicorette (I'll never give up the Partagas), the NYC apartment (I am in exile in Seattle) and the fact that I carry a Y Chromosome, I am very much like Ann as described here.
As a photographer, I like the shot a lot.
I don't see anything wrong with the picture other than I think they could have used warmer lighting.
I read the Time article which reminded me of what I would have expected in Rolling Stone or some other lightweight publication that wanted to write a hit piece but held back because they were too inept to do so.
Do me a favor, and hand me the ticket - I'll have more use for it than you will after you get struck by lightning.
I'll be the corpse at the body farm wrapped in baling wire and the ticket will be in my left hand.
The cold light is intentional, and along with the angle, is used to portray her as skeletal and cadaverish. It is not a flattering photo at all, nor is it technically good. It is just a propaganda hit piece.
Errr...that's ok - you can keep it. I'll just have to make do...
...the 6000-word ARTICLE INSIDE is actually fairly positive.

Because they can best be described as 'beef curtains'.
I was surprised upon reading it.
On H&C Ann said she wont even read it.
How can they call her the most "divisive" when you have people like James Carville going around yelling their heads off, being every bit as inflammatory as Ann, and much less honest.
As are they all.
Her logic makes her beautiful.
Mrs. Clinton's cover picture on the other hand, must have surely been airbrushed, altered, dewrinkle-ized and slenderized before printing. And furthermore, was Mrs. Clinton trying to imitate President Ronald Reagan's healthy pink cheeked glow? While she's wearing an outfit befitting Chairman Mao she tries to look so innocent.
It very easy to see who is all woman.
Hillary looks like she's wearing those Vietnamese black pajamas the VC were so fond of
hitlery looks like a moaist follower.

Nor is it all that bad a picture. I agree about the lighting, but suspect it was intentional - they want to show she is a polarizing figure. I'm surprised they didn't go with something more like:
