Kids fear Ann Coulter (Liberal commie Rat Humor with a barf alert)
tallahassee ^ | 7/1/2003 | Andy Borowitz

Kids fear Ann Coulter

"Mommy, make the scary lady go away." Those are the tearful words of Kaylee Brodkin, 7, of Gary, Ind., who for the last five days has been awakened in the middle of the night by terrifying nightmares - nightmares featuring television pundit/author Ann Coulter.

With the ubiquitous Coulter currently on a national book tour, little Kaylee's sad story is far from an isolated occurrence.

"More and more these days, we are seeing small children who have been traumatized by Ann Coulter," said Dr. Harmon Densmore, chief clinical psychologist at the Chartwell Children's Institute based at the University of Minnesota.

While Densmore urges parents to limit their children's exposure to the banshee-like pundit, whose intemperate polemics flatten everyone and everything in their path, he acknowledges that keeping children away from Coulter entirely may be next to impossible.

Little Kaylee, who is now working with a counselor to conquer her fear, attends role-playing therapy sessions twice a week in which she uses a dragon puppet to bite the head off an Ann Coulter puppet.

"I'd like to hug Kaylee and tell her that Ann Coulter doesn't exist, but you can't lie to your kids," said Kaylee's mother, Diane Brodkin, 38. "Children today have to deal with a lot of scary things, and Ann Coulter, unfortunately, is one of them."

Gee, someimes I wake up to nightmares of a scary woman--Hillary Clinton. Wish she would go away,too.

Notice the violence the kid is subjected to in liberal therapy--a dragon puppet biting off the head of Ann Coulter.
Even in humor the truth about liberals comes out!

GUYS! You're missing the humor!

This is obviously a send-up of uber-sensitive liberalism.

It's gotta be! No one's so lame as to write this as a straight piece mocking Coulter.

Not even DUfuses. ;^)

"I'd like to hug Kaylee and tell her that Ann Coulter doesn't exist, but you can't lie to your kids,"

Thats the problem to much hugging not enough teaching even if this is humor it comes from a vacant brain pan willing to drink the elixer of the lemming. {sp}

Just the existance of liberalism is a lie to the kids promising freedom and delivering tyranny.

Maybe poor little Kaylee is just afraid of Ann because she heard Ann say that women shouldn't be allowed to vote. ;-)

That's not too funny even for lowbrow RAT humor.

What's much funnier is teaching kids to work hard, save money, pay their own way, respect the law and hold absolute values. Then when some Leftist comes along and saddles their business with slackers that can't be fired, corrupts and debases their currency, steals their earnings through endless taxation, spits on Constitutional law and writes bogus law and regulations to oppress and continually denounces tradition, morality and divine law.

The funny part is also teaching them how to deliver metaphorical roundhouse kicks so that mealy-mouthed thieves and liars get their metaphorical jaws rearranged and their metaphorical teeth sprayed across the room.

What's even funnier is advancing the notion that people who kill the Constitution are enemies of America. Enemies can be foreign and domestic. Enemies of America may eventually have to be engaged in ways that are direct and final.

The punch line is that the metaphor may well become reality.

HUMOR

Although you could say that this is a jab at Ann Coulter, I think he's poking fun at the liberal reaction to her.

I don't know what little Kaylee Brodkin has to drink before going to sleep (Apple Juice? Ovaltine?? A Dry Martini???) but I would love to do the same, if it will help me dream of Ann.

Teaching kids violence like this? That type of activity should get them suspended/expelled from school if they repeated that at play tiime!

The Libs must be in load and aim mode....just read an article from Salon ( on Lucianne) about Ann's book in which the author (Joe Conason for Salon) couldn't understand why she wrote her book (Slander) and now used Joe McCarthy as a show of what creeping socialism has done to this country in (Treason) The case in point are the schools for one, and how about pecking away at the Constitution for seconds. Ann as usual, is right on the money. Did anyone see her on Hardball the other night....wouldn't let her talk...never saw anything like it. I believe Ann has hit a liberal nerve.

"what is it about being prud of who you are and what you think that really scares a liebral?"

It means that you have something that they neither have nor understand and that in itself is intimidating. It also means that it is unlikely that you can be swayed by non-arguments and raw emotionalism. That makes you a threat, because while you may not be swayed yourself, you may have the ability to sway others....to YOUR way of thinking. You are counterproductive to their agenda, therefore, YOU are the enemy.

Hope that clears things up.

Kids fear Ann Coulter (Liberal commie Rat Humor with a barf alert)

This is an encouraging headline.
It probably means that lefties/liberals not just won't, but CAN'T bring for a
true answer to one of Coulter's specific challenges, i.e.,

"Name one person who:
1. was falsely accussed by McCarthy/others of being a Communist operative/sympathizer
AND
2. whose life was ruined by said false accussation."


To the best of my recollection, this is the gauntlet that Ms. Coulter cast down
when she appeared on The Michael Medved Show a week or so ago.

I've heard plenty of ticked liberal callers on talk radio complaining about Ms. Coulter...
AND have NOT YET heard the callers bring forth such an example of a falsely-accussed-and-ruined
personage.
