This picture of Ann Coulter is sliced off !

What about below the waste, I think she is wearing some very short pants- that day being a Summer Day in New York City .

>>You'd be better off complaining about Rove's strategy of calling the Minutemen "vigilantes". That particular incident likely had much more impact than all of Ann's histrionics over the last two years.<<

I thought it was Dubya who called the Minutemen 'vigilantees' .

Are you saying that Rove told him to say that ?

Forgive my butting in...

"The whole spiteful, ungrateful, feckless, disloyal POS country."

You can at least be thankfull you live in a country where people are actually deeply concerned that you feel that way.No doubt there's plenty of places where that sentiment could land you in deep trouble.

I live on the other side of the Pacific and I dead set thank God for America.

May God bless you.

GWBush was giddy with anticipation of putting forth the Amnesty for illegals.

I posted an article here on Greece's amnesty fiasco. The conservative party there is suffereing because they have an amnesty program which has to have an extension. The children of illegals in schools created cries of unfairness.


The "Dream act" in the US congress which was floundering for years is an effort to return the anchor babies. If a child is in school ALL the family can be made illegal.

Each illegal alien brings 30 (THIRTY) family members into the USA legally. THIRTY!

12 million illegals (which used to be 8 million in the MSM then became 10 million then became 11 million then became 12 million and I fully expect the MSMto make it 15 million)
needs to be multiplied by 30.

Sorry, Rb, we have, as a nation, decided to give victory to the enemy--for the second time in a generation. We will pay a dreadful price for this, far worse than we paid in Vietnam, because this time, we're going to suffer attacks AGAIN here in our country.

And Ann Coulter worked her (extremely) little butt off to make it happen--just to engage in some famewhoring.

You obviously haven't yet gotten the real message from this year's election debacle.

It is NOT about party. It IS about principles. The Republicans did not do what they were sent to do, what they promised to do: balance the budget, reduce the size and scope of the federal government, secure our borders, etc.

People are looking for leaders, not politicians. We have an overabundant supply of politicians and an absolute dearth of leaders. Leaders do the right thing, not the expedient thing.

Until the GOP leadership learns these lessons, the GOP will be doomed to defeat. You can take out your frustration on Ann Coulter if you want (she's had tougher people than you try to attack her), but she is NOT the reason the Rats will be in charge. She did NOT "hand power" to the Rats. GOP leadership failures handed power to the Rats. Thinking anything different is ignoring the true meaning behind Tuesday's elections.

I agree with Rush--conservatism didn't lose on Tuesday. Republicanism lost. Conservatism works every time it's tried. Republicans in Congress forgot where they came from and why they were sent to Washington.

People need to quit whining, learn what they can from this whole thing and return to the principles that made the party great. If the GOP returns to its conservative roots, the Rats' fairly tenuous grip on Congress will be done away with in 08.

Your attitude perfectly illustrates the reason why the GOP will be handing control of both houses of Congress to the Rats in January.

Throwing around spurious charges of "treason" and calling people "idiots" betrays your ignorance and the complete weakness of your position.

I think we might be better off being in the minority than being dependent on Chafee in a 50-50 Senate.

I think being dependent on Chaffee in a 50-50 Senate would have meant being in the minority in a 49-51 Senate. I just have a gut feeling he had a deal with Schumer to switch in that case. No inside knowledge or anything like that, just Schumer's comments on one of the Sunday shows that this was the must-win seat for the Dems. Being naturally suspicious, I assumed he wanted the Republicans to pour money into that seat that would have been better spent elsewhere, because he knew he'd have that seat if it was decisive anyway. So call me a cynic! ;-)

Some people are off their meds. And some have yet to find the correct prescription.

Trying to be logical with someone of this hindrance is a waste of effort.
You'd be better off pulling some weeds out back.

Ann has nothing to do with the election results. She didn't encourage the behavior by the annointed elected officials that created the political atmosphere that contributed to their defeat.

She merely predicted the outcome as she travels the country and hears from the people.

Now tell me when a law is written making that a crime.

Your comment is interesting...

Yesterday, we all had to read the carping about how "Ruch Lied to us!" as he sadly stated in his words that he was tired of carrying water for the republican party.

Now, today, we have to read your comment, accusing AC of causing the election problems.

The GOP lost because the GOP has floundered in its consrvatism. It isn't AC's fault for calling people what they are, in an effort to hold them accountable for their actions, nor is it RL's fault for trying to make a silk purse out of a RINO's ear in an effort to salvage what can be salvaged out of the 109th-GOP-in-a-skirt weaklings.

We cannot tear into the folks who motivate and educate the conservative movement whilst trying to prop up limp GOP candidates. AC and RL are essential media counter-weights to the MSM propaganda and have served conservativism well...very well indeed.

If you're going rip someone a new a$$ for failure, start with the candidates put forth by the GOP, then move to the RINOS who got caught up in scandals, then swoop down upon those who sat on their hands for the last two years.

But don't kill the messengers simply because they either tell the truth plainly, or color the truth to favor the conservative agenda, both are only done because the elected officials are the ones screwing up.

Handing power to the Democrats is constructive treason

If you literally believe that, implying that Democrats are literally terrorists and terrorist sympathisers, then it is your moral obligation to kill as many Democrats as you can. Otherwise, you're just speaking hyperbole.

I still think the funniest part of all of this is the moron who smashed the voting machine with a cat paperweight because he thought we were trying to steal his vote. My theory is he wanted to become the anti Diebold "Paul Revere". After making his "heroic stand", he imagine becoming the darling of the talk show circuit. If the Dems had lost he would have been it. I think he may have expected that a dem loss could happen but took a risk anyway for a grab at some Michael Moore dollars. I don't think we've heard the last of him.


BTW, there's nothing new on this guy in the news since election day.

I said she helped, and that she did so just to get a few more dollars.

It isn't AC's fault for calling people what they are, in an effort to hold them accountable for their actions

No, she was not attempting to hold Republicans accountable. She was working on spreading the mainstream media's meme that Republicans were irreconcilably split and disorganized. She gave them the pull quotes they wanted.

She handed ammunition to our enemies. She gave them aid and comfort.

If you want to properly understand Coulter's role, just revisit the "Iliad" and refresh yourself with the story of how Cassandra desperately tried to warn the Trojans of the impending threat, but was ignored and demonized.

Like Santorum was a Cassandra in PA. The more he told the truth about the future that the jihadists have planned for us, the worse his polling numbers got.

Perhaps, but the next two years are going to be devastating to this country. I just hope we can recover and undo the damage. If not, it's time to take up arms and take our country back by force if necessary.

Bunker's been dug long ago (I was a survivalist long before it became trendy in the late 1970s), food's already canned, and I keep my weapons in ready condition at all times.

Hint: FR isn't going to do a damn thing for you when the dark ages come to get you.

As Roll Call put it back when Clinton was president: "Simply put, the party controlling the White House nearly always loses House seats in midterm elections" -- especially in the sixth year.

Except that in the sixth year of President Clinton's presidency Democrats gained seats in the House and there was no change in the Senate (a fact that Ann has to engage in some pretty fancy footwork to avoid mentioning later in this article.)

I just heard on the radio here in Phoenix tonight that the Secretary of State's office says Hayworth is wrong. They do not have 100,000 ballots that haven't been counted. They have 230,500 ballots that haven't been counted. Guess they stopped after the 'RATS had enough to win.

While for the most part the GOTV effort has been extraordinary over the last couple of cycles, this is one place I think there has been a major error. The GOP is relying FAR too much on absentee ballots that are never counted, because some statistical model of the walk-in vote says they won't make a difference.

Either make it mandatory that ALL ballots have to be counted, even if the result might not change, or get the broken glass GOP to show up in person at the polls. Early returns are based on these votes, not the mail-ins, and the Dems almost always lead the early returns, due to the NE being first and Dems being day voters. This leads to the depression of the faint-hearted voters later in the day.

First of all, I'd guess that the "Internet gaming" ban probably had more to do with Republicans' losses than Ann Coulter.

Hastert's cozying up to William Jefferson, D-LA, had a lot more to do with it.

Exactly. The Secretary of State is saying that many people requested these "mail-in" ballots and ended up bring them to the polls on election day. They were just set aside and ignored until J.D. Hayworth demanded that they be counted. 230,500 BALLOTS in Maricopa County alone! That's outrageous!

I spent a year in Vietnam, and the treasonous bastards known as the American public turned that year into a waste.

Aha! We arrive at the crux of the matter. So you are going to pee in the ear of everybody to get even. Even those that supported you and your effort through all these years. Thank you for your service.

As a Conservative, I feel everyone is responsible for their own actions. Miss Coulter is refreshing and amusing, but hardly the source of the GOP loss they themselves worked so hard to earn.

The phrase, "Where are they going to go?" resonates badly with any individual that feels Conservative personifies responsibility.

Get a grip, Ann is not the problem, nor is she the solution.
