Skip to comments.Ann Coulter: Kathleen Parker: The Barry Lynn of the South

Just as the left pioneered "AstroTurf" protesters -- homeless people lured to demonstrations with the offer of a free T-shirt and a box lunch -- liberals have also specialized in producing fake "insiders" denouncing their alleged group.

clintonh8r: Kathleen Parker: The Washington Post’s Slightly More Feminine David Brooks
I could care less what this woman has to say now after how she referred to those of us that want to see the constitution of this country upheld. I used to be her number one fan....
It’s about time someone took down Parker - she is such a tool.
LOL! I live in North Florida and I can tell you that Winter Haven is barely even considered really Florida, let alone Southern. I'm not a Southerner by birth, btw, and wouldn't dream of calling myself one; but even I know a phony Southerner when I hear one!
This is actually very funny... (but you'd have to have lived in New England to really appreciate it).
I believe she was referring to the “leaders” of the movement - those filing the lawsuits.
Too bad about KP. I really used to like her.
Or, you’d have to live in Florida to appreciate it...
Good piece. Since I haven’t read anything from Parker in a long time that wasn’t attacking conservatives, I had come to the conclusion that she was a faux-conservative, which leads one to the obvious conclusion that she is “not” a conservative.
Um ... a self-appointed writing something or other; never got her hat right at the Carolina Cup; and known as a prig at the Old Mill (Boykin) and Lifred’s (Rembert), and showed a little too much “leg” at the cistern at CofC. ...
Agreed. Fake Insiders? Ann is a fake conservative ... just another Beltway RINO after calling conservatives “cranks” for expecting POTUS to show documents to prove he legally qualifies.
Ann can pound sand.
Hey look, a looney toon! He’s totally noseless!
It is funny and I do appreciate it, living in the real New England. Let's put it this way: they are all Yankee fans down there in southern Connecticut.
Ann uncovers another blockbuster. I swear that she blows the cover off liberals more than the entire MSM combined! Ann is an awesome legal mind, debator, writer, conservative, a real babe, all rolled into one! Thank God she’s on the side of America.
settle down young’n.
See my post #8.
That’ll work too.
I don’t believe so, but either way, it was uncalled for. If she had wanted to avoid the topic, she could have done so politely by just saying that she hadn’t studied the issue, so couldn’t really comment on it. But she didn’t do that. She chose instead to insult those of us who think the POTUS should be required to follow the eligibility requirements of the constitution. And this coming from a lawyer who claims to be a conservative.
I’ve never been wild about either one of them. Give me Mike Reagan and Pat Boone, some Star Parker with a side of Krauthammer and a Mike Adams.
I think the perps in the birth certificate movement - Berg, Keyes, Taitz, et al, are crackpots. I look upon those who believe them as victims of a political scam.
Comrade O is qualified if you believe that his mama Sidney was an American citizen. If she was (and I have never seen anyone express credible claims to the contrary) then she passed citizenship by birth to him even if she gave birth to him on Saturn or Jupiter or on the heavenly body formerly known as the planet Pluto.
There are those who point out that there may have been a statute then that would say that an 18-20 year old American woman would not be able to pass birthright natural citizenship to her child by a foreign citizen father while an American father of the same age would be able to pass such Natural born American citizenship to his child by a foreign citizen mother. If you imagine that such a statute would be found constitutional today, that must be good stuff you are smoking. Statutes must have rational public policy grounds. You wanna try to explain the rational basis for such a distinction??? If anything, in those pre-DNA days, maternity was more certain than paternity and a better standard of citizenship by birth.
Ann is a fake conservative????? More likely, Ann is not a Bircher, or not a Birther, or not a 9/11 Truther or not some other variety of moonbat posing as a conservative without justification.
You can pound sand!
I agree. And they’re making us look bad and are using it as yet another club to beat us over the head with.
And they’re busy trashing hardcore credentialed Conservatives with long, long track records of genuine rightist thought over a freaking hearsay rumor?
Uh Oh! Here come the flames.
IIRC, the “birther” issue was started by Larry Johnson, an ex-CIA operative who has clearly been a tool for the Dems for the past 8 years.
And the best way to fight Katty P is to never, never click on her articles. Her articles have always been unoriginal and tedious, anyway, even before she Went Vichy. Trust me, she's never even been a Peggy Noonan, back when Peggy Noonan was still Peggy Noonan.
Boycott the menopausal wing of the RINOs.
Belle Coulter Rox!
Pray for America
The only Carolina Cup that matters in NC is at "The Range" in Oxford NC where everyone wears baseball caps. 300 IDPA shooters from America and beyond wielding fabulous handguns.
Maybe she DID research the topic and found the birther case lacking in both merit and legal reasoning.
She is a lawyer, and after reading her books and hearing her talk off the cuff, a conservative.
Wow, 33 posts and no pictures of Ann. How the mighty have fallen.
“Let’s put it this way: they are all Yankee fans down there in southern Connecticut...”
Actually, they make pretty good Yankee fans...kinda like water seeking it’s own level.
Glad they have outed themselves.
Since when do you have to march lockstep on every issue to be Conservative? I like the Birthers but my whole life isn’t wrapped around it.
Pray for America
Nice one Annie, about time that poseur got her comeuppance.
Ann may "secretly want" to discredit Obama, but maybe she doesn't "believe" that the "birther" charges are true or provable.
That makes her different (in this case, anyway) from people who believe what they want to believe because they want to believe it.
I’m entitled to my opinion, just as she is. She’s shown her true colors.
Any Repub would be required to produce a legitimate long form BC. And actually, McCain was, and did. Zero was not required to. Many powerful people looked the other way, because they didn’t want to criticize the black guy.
Pound sand yourself! True conservatives just want the constitution to be followed.
Florida probably has more yankees living there than true southerners, LOL.
Do you read? HIS MOTHER WAS A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. SO IS HE by being born to a citizen, no matter where he was born. Sidney Ann never renounced her citizenship. He may also be a British citizen or a Kenyan citizen based on his father's citizenship. We allow dual citizenship. Elizabeth Taylor is a British, American and Israeli citizen. I can claim Irish citizenship and British citizenship and probably Canadian citizenship under the laws of those countries and, if I do, my children can claim through me. I do not intend to do this unless a kid insists (probably on Irish citizenship).
Birth in the United States makes one a citizen regardless of the nationality of the parents unless the parents were diplomats not subject to American jurisdiction by diplomatic immunity. Whether or not Comrade O was born in the US, he is a natural born citizen if ONE parent was a citizen at the time of his birth. Case closed. You are being suckered. The editors of National Review, Annie and most observers on the right have figured out the foregoing. You don't get to define constitutional terms your way just because you want to or find eccentric definitions convenient.
If you disagree, please cite the exact language of the constitution which you imagine justifies your claim that ANY candidate "would be required to produce a long form birth certificate".
Many people also "looked the other way" on the late George Romney (born in Mexico to Americans who had moved there) and Lowell P. Weicker, Jr., (born to Americans in Paris on business). McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone when his father was stationed there in his military officer capacity. None of them were black guys. If you think that the situation is different from those three because one of Comrade O's parents was a foreigner, please cite the exact language of the constitution which you imagine justifies such a claim.
Instead of the editorials, how about the facts?
fine, whatever you say sonny but I’m healthy, wealthy and retired and a few childish names pointed my way, much as the same way immature liberals like to name call, does not bother me at this point in life, but thanks for the chuckle.
Here you go!
no kidding Winter Haven has been snowbird central for 60 years now....why do folks think it’s called Winter Haven?
Lakeland and Haines City used to be Southern though. I know many folks from that area who are as Southern as me though now most live in the Panhandle, Georgia or further south around Clewiston now...still southern there
Burden of proof is on the candidate, just as when any of us applies for a passport, the burden of proof is on us to produce legitimate documents.
All Zero’s goons have produced is a photo-shopped fraudulent COLB on the web. Not good enuf. If that’s good enuf for you, I don’t care, but a very significant and growing % of the American public doesn’t think that is good enuf. The assclown Marxist has no paper trail — no legitimate BC, no college transcripts have been released, it’s all locked down. If you find that acceptable, fine, go over to DU. You’ll all be happy there. Most conservatives don’t find that acceptable.
I’m not a constitutional scholar, so I won’t go there. Find one of those to debate the fine points. I don’t believe he has fulfilled the constitutional requirements, and as I said, a large number of Americans agree with me. If you are satisfied, fine.
very well stated Web S. now even if the BC thing does not pan out, a by product of all of the talk regarding it has been the thing of ALL of his records being hidden, something that would not have been brought out as quickly, if at all, if the BC thing had not been hammered on. there are still quite a few in this country who have no idea about hussein’s hidden past. the BC thing has helped get that fact out there to the sheeple not paying attention, especially the younger voters.
