Coulter, Harry Take Each Other On [Have Words On The Early Show About Her Mention Of Him....]
CBS ^

Posted on 01/06/2009 6:25:18 AM PST by Sub-Driver

Coulter, Harry Take Each Other On NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2009(CBS) Ann Coulter says liberals should look in the mirror.

In her latest book, "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America," the conservative firebrand stirs up controversy again, contending that liberals in America try to play victim when really, they're the bullies.

While she's at it, she points fingers at what she calls the liberal media.

"(The book is) basically about how victimhood is rewarded and everyone wants to be a victim," Coulter told CBS News. "It's about the rewards and praise you get for being a victim and the way liberals use victimhood and they oppress others."

At one point in "Guilty," Coulter remarks about an interview of Sen. Ted Kennedy by Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith in which Smith asks Kennedy if Barack Obama is at increased risk of being assassinated because he's African American. She dismisses the notion, saying presidential assassinations have been the work of left-wingers or people with no political leanings at all.

I highly recommend going to the site and watching the video, Ann is at her usual best. I may even buy her book just to tick the left off. Go Ann!

Conservatives must take their gloves off and expose the Muslim Messiah, Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the waste in DC.

I think the best opportunity for this is the confirmation hearing for Obama's attorney general nominee, Eric Holder. He has links to several very shady episodes in Democratic Party lore: the Marc Rich pardon, the Elian Gonzalez case, the David Koresh compound and, of course, Rod Blagojevich.

**** The point is, we need both “serious” conservatives and Ann to counteract liberal dominance in the media. ... Some would says she misrepresents conservatism and gives it a bad name. But instead she points out the hypocrisy of liberals in a way most people understand and her humor (sometime outrageous) makes it all the easier to read her books.*****

You're right IMO.
And there's many of those 'Ann is bad' hand wringers here on FR.
I think they post from the Country Club right before tee-off, or the Tennis Pro shows up for the lesson of the day ;-)

(but unfortunately, Ann has bigger gonads than most republican (cough) 'men'. Except for the likes of Dick Cheney and Tom Delay they're nancy boys.)

One only need speak the truth to expose and defeat the left. And we elect limp-wristed republicans who can’t even manage that! Astounding.

I just figured something about Ann and the constant Freeper question as to why she appears on little watched lib's shows like Bill Maher’s. It's practice for the big shows like this. Genius. Those forays into leftyville are like a scrimmage game to her.

Sorry, Geek Speak (of which I know very little) for completely "owns" him. It comes from online gaming nuts who make typos when typing really rapidly. Some typos are so common that they become part of the vernacular.

Wikipedia has an article on this...I think that's where I found it.

Harry Smith is an arrogant, condescending little snot (pardon my language). He thought he was going to control and “show up” Ann Coulter and he got his hat handed to him...typical Liberal.

I was watching Ann Coulter smoke Harry on ABC too....she was brilliant.

He began by saying, "You want to be taken seriously, don't you?" and then went on to introduce her humor as "sophomoric"....NO HARRY Colbert and Letterman's humor is sophomoric...ANN IS BRILLIANT. Her command of the English language and facts is unmatched in America today.

CONSERVATIVE AGAIN IN 2010!!!

I’ve read two or three of her books...”Treason” is the absolute best, in my opinion, so far.

I thought myself an excellent student of history, and Ann really gave me some good lessons in that book—something I didn’t think would happen.

Our urgent priority is to find a Republican with the gonads to expose these scum during their hearings. There is and has been an extreme shortage of guts, spine, and gonads in our Party. Anyone have any ideas as to why that is??? Our country, our security, and our future are at stake and their doesn’t seem to be a Republican with the gonads to put America first. Reality is that we have no one in politics that is there for the country. Instead, these power-hungry, ego maniacs care more for themselves than our heritage and our future. Sickens me, how about you?? Corruption in politics is destroying all of us. If the American people want to preserve a future with freedom and prosperity, these corrupt politicians have to be exposed and thrown out of office. Apparently, it is up to us to organize and find a strong leader or we’re lost.

The video is either still there or back up as I just checked the link.

BTW, right under the video they have a note:

"I only wish they had released the book on inauguration day."

The release timing of the book is perfect. By the time of the inauguration the book will grow legs as long as Ann's.

There was a recent article in the WSJ about how the French intellectuals and artists were terrible collaborators with Germany during WWII. What we have in this country are pseudo intellectuals, they are so busy trying to convince people how smart they are, and the whole victim culture perpetuates the myth of their intelligence.

No kidding.. Course I do know some democrats that hate govt and most democrat politicians and socialism but are clueless (or in denial) as to remaining democrat enablers..

I believe they don't really care about it all(politics)..
Could be they are really self absorbed..

I agree.

I haven’t bought one of her books yet.
There’s some things I didn’t like (the conflict with the 9/11 widows - using the word “raghead” with Dick Cheney present...)
Although I have really enjoyed most of her columns.

But watching our media become Pravda has been frightening.

I will buy this book just because it made Harry Smith have a hissy fit - AND because it caused NBC to ban her.

If Coulter really wanted to get Smith’s goat, she might have come on his show to announce that she was a candidate for HRC’s soon-to-be-vacated Senate seat!

If Ann had done that, it would have been the verbal equivalent of a pie in the face. And, of course, it would have been worth more publicity as well.

Runtime: 7m 45s
Them women can't think very well thing for themselves.

They picked up on Matt Lauer's use of the word "tone" and threw it at Ann several times.

They were courteous and nice to Coulter tough. They aren't as needy as Matt is for the attention a liberal man gets for beating up on a woman.

Great video!
