Lethally blonde

Ann Coulter has made a career out of saying the unthinkable. Last week the bestselling American author caused outrage when she described the widows of 9/11 as 'witches' who revelled in their husbands' deaths. Mixing soundbites with short skirts, this former lawyer has become the most extreme - and popular - polemicist in America. How did that happen?

Here is an excerpt from The Observer/Guardian- The Gaurdian as you all know is a Far leftwing publication, at least by American standards:

>> Lethally blonde

Ann Coulter has made a career out of saying the unthinkable. Last week the bestselling American author caused outrage when she described the widows of 9/11 as 'witches' who revelled in their husbands' deaths. Mixing soundbites with short skirts, this former lawyer has become the most extreme - and popular - polemicist in America. How did that happen?

Sunday June 11, 2006
The Observer


Ann Coulter has a stalker. She doesn't like to dignify his actions by talking about him, but she'll tell you, if you ask, that he's what the FBI class as the most dangerous kind - John Lennon's assassin was one of these. They're the sort that start out as fans and turn into your worst enemy.
Feelings about Ann Coulter run high and extreme. Often described as 'the Republican Michael Moore', Coulter is possibly even better equipped than Moore to offend people, because, it seems, she is 100 per cent shameless. Actually, make that 99 per cent. 'I've always told my friends,' she says, 'if only I could be a black Jewish homosexual - then we could really have some fun! Then I could say anything!'

Luckily, she is a woman, which puts her in a so-called minority and gives her considerable ammo (literally - she is very much in favour of guns, partly on account of the stalker). James Wolcott described her in Vanity Fair as 'the Paris Hilton of post-modern politics'. Eric Alterman, columnist for the Nation, calls her 'Rush Limbaugh in a miniskirt' (Limbaugh is a popular right-wing talk radio host). Sean Penn has an Ann Coulter action figure on his desk - which he uses to put out his cigarettes. Press a button and the doll speaks: 'Why not go to war for oil? We need oil. What do Hollywood celebrities imagine fuels their private jets? How do they think their cocaine is delivered to them?'

Coulter's weekly column is published in Human Events, once Ronald Reagan's favourite paper. It is read by few outside the conservative heartland, yet she has achieved a notoriety that suggests a far greater circulation. Liberals love to hate her, some conservatives hate her, but every time she writes a book - and Godless, published this week, is her fifth - it's an instant bestseller.

She's a little like Batman, or the Joker. You don't hear from her for a while then suddenly you can't miss her. This is a can't-miss-her moment. On Tuesday she went on the Today Show, NBC's morning programme, defending the passage of Godless that concerns the 11 September widows who lobbied for the creation of the 9/11 commission. She describes them as 'witches' who have cashed in on their husbands' deaths.

On Wednesday she took up the entire front page of the New York Daily News: 'Coulter the Cruel', it blared, next to a picture of Coulter smiling as if she'd just been crowned Miss World. On Thursday Hillary Clinton fought back against what she called a 'vicious, mean-spirited attack'. Perhaps, Clinton suggested, Coulter's book should have been called 'Heartless'. At a public reading in Long Island a town councilman presented Coulter with a letter requesting an apology. Triumphantly, she tore it up. Ah! The book tour had begun.

'This is of course exactly what she wants,' says Joe Klein, who tells me that she inspired a character in his Primary Colors. He adds: 'She's a really cancerous example of the American political disease. You know, there's a whole generation of people in this country who think a serious political discussion is Ann Coulter and Michael Moore yelling at each other. It's driven serious, nuanced conversation out of the market.'

Her effect, however, has to be carefully calibrated - yes, she's a loudmouth right-winger, along the lines of Limbaugh and broadcaster Bill O'Reilly, and far more iconic than both of them. But is she no more than a jester? How dangerous is she?

'She's not dangerous,' Joe Klein clarifies. 'The phenomenon she represents is dangerous'. Alterman agrees: 'The effect is to make racism and other forms of chauvinism acceptable in polite society. You're a killjoy if you take her seriously.'

The night the Twin Towers fell she wrote a now famous column suggesting that 'We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity'. She took a whole lot of people with her. She is, as blog king Mickey Kaus, self-described 'neoliberal' and friend of Coulter, says, 'one of these people who's had the so-called Fox effect, of rallying voters to the polls that nobody thought existed'. Coulter became a pied piper for a certain kind of patriot.

Entire chapters of other people's books (Alterman's, and liberal radio host Al Franken's) have been devoted to pointing out her factual errors. Coulter has written a book taking down Bill Clinton (High Crimes and Misdemeanors); one about the so-called collected lies of the left (Slander); a collection of previously published columns (How to Talk to a Liberal); a volume celebrating the work of Joe McCarthy (Treason). Godless is an expression of her religious views, and takes in the obvious issues: abortion, science, the death penalty ...

Some of Coulter's more charming opinions are that the country would be better off if women couldn't vote, that in December 2001 America should have attacked France, and that the death penalty should be brought back everywhere. She supported apartheid in South Africa, she has gently suggested that Timothy McVeigh should have blown up the New York Times building, she believes that defending the right to abortion is akin to defending slavery. Airlines, she says, should have - and flaunt - a policy of racial profiling: 'You are now free to move about the cabin - Not so fast, Mohammed!'

I am due to meet Ann Coulter for lunch, but there has been some confusion over the location. Her PR emails me to apologise. 'As you might imagine, her schedule is very hectic, and I do not have total control over her until next week,' she writes, effortlessly confirming my suspicion that Coulter is in fact an automaton. Total Control? How does that work? One week, her book publicist; the next, Dick Cheney? I soon learn that this idea is ridiculous. Coulter would never let a moderate like Cheney get his hands on her.

When I arrive at the restaurant, Coulter is sitting down, which is just as well because had I seen at first how tall she was, I might have fainted. Coulter's look is that of someone who has paid close attention to the hairstyles favoured in Stepford, and to the eyeliner worn by the evil android in Metropolis. Her motto might as well be: you can never be too rich, too thin, too blond, too tall, or too rude. She has a mane of expensively blond hair, the crane-limbed body type of a pterodactyl, and a smile that seems entirely un-Machiavellian. Now I understand.

All the interviews I've read involve the interviewer (usually a liberal man) wanting to dislike her and coming away with some excuse for her behaviour, on the grounds that she is actually quite nice in person. And it turns out to be true that she makes everything seem like a joke. She loves to argue, she smiles and laughs with every answer she gives. She's like a puppy waiting to be thrown a ball. Look, she says, I'm just doing this for fun. I'd rather be a married stay-at-home mom, but until that happens, taunting liberals seems like a good way to fill up my day.

After we've ordered our drinks, I ask Coulter whether she thinks she owes her success to a conservative following, or to liberals' need for a bogeyman.

'Oh, that's a good question,' she chuckles. 'One of my favourite liberal friends has laughed about how it's just like clockwork: they attack you, and all it does is give you publicity, and they can't help themselves - they just keep attacking. Liberals hate me because I understand them better than they understand themselves. They pretend not to get the joke.'

As the first plane went into the World Trade Centre, Coulter was in a cab on her way to LaGuardia airport. She was listening to the radio she always carried with her, before i-Pods were invented. 'At first I thought it was some shock jock joke,' she says now, 'but then everyone was pulling the same joke'. When the second plane hit, she leaned forward and told the cab driver the news. He didn't react. He was a Muslim. Coulter was instantly alarmed.

After spending all day in a bar in Queens (the bridges were shut, the subway had stopped, she couldn't get back into Manhattan) she wrote her infamous 9/11 column on her laptop, and hasn't changed her view since. Was that her position before, I wonder?

'No, I never cared about the Muslims,' she says of the people she more frequently refers to as 'ragheads'. 'It seemed like a morass - that's why so many popular jokes are based on peace in the Middle East. I thought, it's a morass, other people are dealing with it, I'll write about Clinton.'
<<

You see how one sided these statements are, they have nothing really good to say about Ann Coulter .

This guy's observations are as propagandistic and misleading
and the tripe and vitriol you get from Al Franken or John Stewart,
let alone more obvious examples like Micahel moore or Salon.com

Probably Max Cleland

Exactly what I thought. How convenient to forget it was one Vietnam Vet.
And the stuff about Hitlery "shouldn't have to take that stuff off her shoes". They left out what the "stuff" was.
Ann said Hitlery was married to a rapist, so what kind of support was Hitlery giving to women?

True, and the likes of Al Franken and Jon Stewart get a free pass when using the same style and making very caustic satire !

>>Quotable Ann Coulter

On 9/11


'If Chicago had been hit, I assure you New Yorkers would not have cared. New Yorkers would have been like, "It's tough for them, now let's go back to our Calvin Klein fashion shows. "'
<<

That is exactly true, do you think Mike Wallace or Dan Blather or Jon Stewart would shed any tears if some place in Middle America had gotten wiped out on 9/11 ?

Did Wallace or Stewart shed any tears for those Innocent American lives lost at the Pentagon, to be sure, all those in that building were all Americans, whereas in the WTC, you had a lot of Foreigners !

Wrong about Kasick--only watched him cause he hyped her
repeatedly, had not read her book, quoted his wife
who had not read her book --looked like an ass--and cut
the segment short.
His show is usually a waste of time and was tonite.

What a crock! Coulter's 45. The only way she could be a stay-at-home mom at her age is get married next week and have a kid the next day. And she knows that.

She loves throwing red meat, and she knows, because she's blonde and skinny, men who fantasize making love to a piranha will always come to her defense, no matter what she does.

Coulter made a choice a long time ago, she's acting on that choice, and would never have it any other way. She would die without the publicity and, now, without the money.

Lethally blonde, and possibly politically lethal as well.

Suggesting that the 4 husbands who died that day were about to bail on their wives and children is disgraceful, and then saying the widows should pose for Playboy...classless.

I already know I'll get hammered, but so what.

Ann's overall message is right on the nose, her delivery can at times be a turn-off.

All you have to do is look at either of them, then look at most of the femi-nazis. They don't 'do' hair or make-up.

I recall Ann writing in one of her books I think, but maybe it was in a column, that "liberals do not read books."

Oh yes she has tapped into a deep well here.

Nope! It's thinkable.

"Last week the bestselling American author caused outrage when she described the widows of 9/11 as 'witches' who revelled in their husbands' deaths."

Nope! Ann Coulter referred only to the JERSEY-FOUR widows.

"Mixing soundbites with short skirts, this former lawyer has become the most extreme - and popular - polemicist in America. How did that happen?"

By pulling no punches...not really "most extreme"...it's that Coulter does it extremely well...

Satire is hard to pull off in print. You have to be a good writer like Alexander Pope or Ann Coulter to pull it off. 'Mad Magazine' was satirical, but they had pictures to help them do it.

The lefties are trying to keep people from reading her book because she outs them pretty good. I have only read two chapters and her research is amazing and on the money.
If the average American read and comprehended what she is putting out they would vote for Jimmy Hoffa before ever voting for another Liberal Democrat. America would be a wonderful place without these idiot liberals,they are as dangerous as terrorist and maybe even more so.

Last week the bestselling American author caused outrage when she described the widows of 9/11 as 'witches' who revelled in their husbands' deaths.

And it only took until sentence #2 before they started lying... Or at the very least, completely mischaracterising what Ann wrote. It's truely amazing how nearly EVERYONE is buying into this Bravo Sierra! This evening on Fox News Channel, Kasich (sp?) reported that his wife asked why Ann had to be "so mean." Of course, neither he, nor his wife had bothered reasing the book, so they were reacting to quotes of people who also hadn't read her book, or were those who want to be character assasins against Ann! Un-Frigging-Believable!

Did Ann refer to several thousand widows as "witches?" Of was it 4, specifically identified women who have used their celebrity as September 11, 2001 widows to become political activists?

What I didn't appreciate was John suggesting a good Christian wouldn't be so tough on others. I guess he never read John the Baptist's comments (or Christ's directed at the Pharisees). Paul wished the Galatian gnostics would castrate themselves. Namby pamby is not what these men were.

Sinkspur, you have revealed yourself to be a poisonous cynical Liberal, you should be expunged from this forum entirely, you interloper !

Ann Coulter is a faithful passionate conservative who does not cave in to pressure -

Ann and Ann Coulter alone have stood up to the forces of Political Correctness and not backed down - that is feat a that even Howard Stern has not kept 100% perfect !

She most certainly did not. She was referring to certain individuals, not "the widows of 9/11." The left lies, and lies, and lies - what total hypocrisy to accuse her of bad taste and when you are blatantly lying like this yourself.

Yes. Something happened to Kasich that led him to abruptly leave the Congress. Maybe an FBI file in the Clintonoid whore house on Pennsylvania Avenue. He has been gimpy ever since. A great disappointment. When he was Chair of House Budget Committee he looked like he was destined for greatness. Now he chats his life away on a half-baked cable talk show. Sad.

From a June 27, 2004 article by Julian Colman in the Telegraph re the Jersey Girl Widows: Debra Burlingame, a Democrat, whose brother Charles was the pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon: "People held back from criticizing the relatives because of who they were. But what's happening is that this prominent group of activists have become THE ROCK STARS OF GRIEF (emphasis mine)in this country. I think people are getting sick of them because they are being so demanding."

Think Janet Reno. I'm sorry, but that is the ugliest woman on earth.

You are wrong. Helen ThomASS is first, ReNO is second. Take your picks from there down.

Say, I'm not sure ... my memory could be faulty on this ... but didn't John Kerry spend a little time over there as a budding fiction writer and part-time gun-toter?

Also writer, director, cameraman and editor

The section of the book so willingly and ably magnified by the MSM is short and incidental so as to make them demonstrate precisely the liberal doctrine of infallibility (by virtue of victimhood) she was writing about in the first place.

but when do they ever criticize Hillary's make-up

Plus, Ann actually WRITES the books that bear her name as author.

Every journalist is following the dishonest lead of the Democrats in mis-describing what Coulter said. They are trying to make it sound as though she attacked ALL widows of 9/11 when in fact she was specifically discussing the FOUR so-called "Jersey Girls" who formed a leftist activist group to work to distort the history and lessons of 9/11 on behalf of the Demagogic Party. We are watching the work of lying demagogues once again. fwiw, I am one who thinks Ann Coulter should have stayed away from talking about these women's marriages, etc. and I've criticized her for that -- but it is wildly dishonest for journalists and Demagogues to pretend she was attacking all 9/11 widows. The passage in her book is quite clearly and explicitly about the 4 notorious "Jersey Girls"........
