Don't you love the smell of fresh zot bait in the morning?
Thats conveniently vague.
The MSM had a much greater effect on the masses of voters than Ann. The MSM and 'rats did a pretty good job of getting their voters out. Conservatives came out in good numbers too. Ann's impact is quite small compared to all others.
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.
There have been some emotional posts today. I'm sure the mods will understand...
She called for impeaching Bush at one point over Dubai Ports.
She worked right alongside them, injecting their preferred ideas into her columns.
I had no idea that Karl Rove gave Ann the key to the "shake the earth" switch on his machine.
>>>"Ann Coulter willfully aided and abetted the Democrats in regaining Congress. I dare call it treason."<<<
Me thinks you are a wacky left-wing kook pretending to be a conservative.
Love ya, mean it!
No, that's Ann's gig. She practically wrote her column in lockstep with the ideas the MSM wanted out there.
Funny - I've never seen his show, but the name Keith Olbermann immediately came to mind when I read this.
I thought the GOP was the party of "personal responsibility". Blaming anyone other than the man/woman in the mirror puts them on the same level as a Dimwit-o-crat.
In a number of races, the Libertarians, while not necessarily a Republican vote stealer, did in fact make up more than the difference between the losing Republican and winning dem.
As for Ann being the reason for us losing, that's crazy talk. ;-) There is a segment here that was so opposed to anyone daring to criticize this administration that they are wont to find any way to blame those critical of this admin. My take is that, again, it was the squishy middle, not single issue conservatives. Heck, I can be single-issue and I voted.
With JD Hayworth, he's down by about six thousand votes. I wonder what the break point is with the provisionals and absentees. Would it break far enough toward him? Oh yeah, that's a race where in the Libertarians sucked up over four thousand votes.
She worked hand-in-hand with the mainstream media, getting the ideas they wanted out there to clobber the GOP vote. I'm assigning her some of that personal responsibility you just mentioned.
That's Ok PaleHorse, you're allowed to not like Ann and tell us all about it. But as someone else mentioned, it's a twisted logic that draws you to your conclusion.
If W & co didn't get hit in '06 ('06 results are not at all a good thing imho), '08 is/was looming as a much bigger problem. The Republicans aren't finished with being given negative feedback. They just got some prematurely.
Having read a lot of her work it does not seem likely that she did so seriously. Can you put this in context for us?
I spent a year in Vietnam, and the treasonous bastards known as the American public turned that year into a waste. And now they've done that to my son, my nieces, and my nephews. Move on? You're awfully glib in saying that.
Ping to the weekly Coulter.
Sure. She's a pundit. She has no responsibility for accomplishing anything, so she's free to spout off and be an attention whore, no matter how much damage it does. That's the entirety of the context.
Please don't get me wrong; for the most part what she says is truth about the rats. It's all in her approach. Calling a spade a spade in one thing, using insulting language is quite another. I've been around a long time and I know there are ways of insulting people without it sounding insulting, at least first.
If you look at the Demo-wacks as traitors, why don't you beat the drum to have THEM jailed and brought to justice?
You have to have someone to blame so I guess your scapegoat du jour is Ann Coulter. You really need to get over it and look to the future.
Because, before we do that, we must have OUR house in order.
[I was speaking of Ann Coulter committing treason, not writing the book Treason, where she cheerfully argued exactly what I'm saying about the Democrats she willfully helped to elect.]
Your tin foil hat may have fallen off.
Ann speaks the truth.. The White RINO House is the truth...
Thats what brought this about..
Actually, this is a very good point. A Republican loss sometime was inevitable. It certainly would have been nicer, now, if it hadn't happened now but if it hadn't happened now 2008 could have been an even worse disaster.
You seem to have an extremist view. Predicting that the Democrats would win, and writing nonfiction is not treasonous, and depending on what was in the nonfiction, it doesn't even have to be anti-conservative, either.
That's a really lame answer. Ann is obviously not a member of YOUR house, so why don't you work on going after the most egregious Dem traitors? Seems that would be a heck of a lot more proactive and if you snag a few it will definitely help the GOP in '08.
Smacking around and dragging down fellow conservatives will only serve to keep us divided.... plays right into the hands of Hitlery and Company.
I'm having a real problem determining who it is, in particular, you are angry with.
For example, I hate the MSM & leftist dog squeeze, love our military & vets, our constitution and apple pie, yet in thread after thread, no matter what the subject, it seems as though you are p*ssed at guys just like me.
Where are you coming from? No problem if you don't feel like answering, just had to ask.
There were a few DUers who were pretending to still be worried about vote fraud. They were really worried about their appearance as hypocrites. The rest were the classic DUmmie, it's only vote fraud when they don't win.
I heard her predict this.
Because I learned in Vietnam that one does NOT trust someone like Ann Coulter to watch my back while I go after the bad guys.
Seems that would be a heck of a lot more proactive and if you snag a few it will definitely help the GOP in '08.
Sorry, antceecee. This country--inspired, in part, by Ann Coulter's deliberate efforts to encourage factional feuding within the GOP during the post-primary phase of the 2006 campaign--has decided to vote for Democrats and to stab the troops in the back. I honestly don't think we're going to have elections in 2008, because "Jericho" will have made the leap from "television drama" to "reality show" thanks to America putting the Dems in power. My primary goal is for my children, grandchildren, and extended family to survive the coming Dark Ages, not to win some pointless election that's not going to be happening, anyway.
"...it's only vote fraud when they don't win."
The whole spiteful, ungrateful, feckless, disloyal POS country.
She was on Drudge's radio show and predicted this two-three weeks ago.
Quite frankly I wish that people would have taken her prediction seriously instead of the arrogance of people thinking we were going to gain seats. This election was completely ours to lose. This did not have to be as bad as it was if people would have been humble and actually think perhaps we could lose instead of saying well we won the last four elections we will NEVER lose again (believe me people seriously thought this). Arrogance is not a good thing to have and bashing polls the last two months prior to election was cool to do but the results were it made us unprepared for the reality to come.
The Congresscritters, W & Rove are ultimately responsible. Hastert never had any vision, not much strategic skill, no real firm principles. That the American public has little patience and not many have a strong nationalist will is not Ann's fault. If anything she may have actually increased the number of those understanding that the US is in a long term struggle.
Like I said, you're awfully glib about betrayal. Where were you during Vietnam?
Having a dork like Webb in the Senate is worse than losing the House.
You seem to have a personally specific definition of betrayal and an unreasonable focus on Coulter as a major factor in yesterday's election. Beating up on Coulter is not an efficient use of your energy to effect change for the better.
No. I'll write slow this time.
The GOP has only itself to blame. Not Ann Coulter. Many, many of those incumbents were arrogant, out-of-touch and just generally dislikeable. And there were also a lot of character issues in a lot of national and non-national races.
For the record, I held my nose and pushed the party light button.
