My Beef With Ann Coulter
Daily Beast ^ | Megan McCain

Posted on 03/09/2009 11:41:50 AM PDT by pissant

It is no secret that being a Republican isn’t the most hip political stance a person can take right now. President Obama has successfully established himself as the hippest politician around. You know you’re big when Katy Perry wears a dress with your face on it to host the MTV Europe Music Awards. To my fellow Republicans: I’m sorry, I wish I could be more positive about the current “hipness” of our party. But being a Republican is about as edgy as Donny Osmond. Granted, being “hip” is not a reason to join a political party, or a reason to agree with its ideals. But it is a way to get the attention of a generation—or, more specifically, my generation.

To make matters worse, certain individuals continue to perpetuate negative stereotypes about Republicans. Especially Republican women. Who do I feel is the biggest culprit? Ann Coulter. I straight up don’t understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time. But no matter how much you or I disagree with her, the cult that follows Coulter cannot be denied. She is a New York Times best-selling author and one of the most notable female members of the Republican Party. She was one of the headliners at the recent CPAC conference (but when your competition is a teenager who has a dream about the Republican Party and Stephen Baldwin, it’s not really saying that much).

Hipness does wear off.

Values and beliefs tend to endure.

I happen to like Ann Coulter, she’s a lightning rod for Democratic angst.

“hip”

the very idea of a political stance being “hip” is revulsive, and pathetic.

these are life & death matters. do... you... see?

I used to think more of her until I found out she had a penchant for liberal men. It made me question if it really WAS a schtick.

This dunderhead doesn’t realize the only reason she gets any attention at all is because she disses prominent conservatives. She’s worried about “hip”. And that’s understandable considering she’s a clueless twit.

My guess Meghan has taken a leaf out of her old man’s book, and decided that the best way to get noticed by the MSM is to take pot shots not at the Democrats but at a “fellow” Republican.

Dear Megan,

There is nothing “edgy” about getting in the longest line and taking the easiest path. Quit giving the Left kudos which they do not merit.

Being a rugged individualist and a freedom fighter is always edgy.

Be happy with having just cause and forget about being popular.

Ann Coulter is so much edgier and cooler than that fat little Trust Funder McCain will ever be. Tubby is just jealous because Ann looks more like McCain’s trophy wife than does her homely daughter.

Is this High School or real life, Miss McCain? How about talking to your Dad about his “go-along-to-get-along” wet noodle RINO votes and let us worry about our “hipness” or lack thereof?

Given the current disgusting state of “hip” American culture, I invariably go screaming off in the opposite direction.

By today’s standards of hipness, I strive to be as “square” as possible.

Like her father, she isn't a conservative. Any one who supports gay marriage and whatnot is NO conservative. I guess, I'm an "extremist." Thanks for clarifying why I like Ann Coulter. She's not afraid to take on the Left!

I don’t know who this Katy Perry person is. Also, who is Megan McCain? Sounds to me like she is trying to use the skull’s strategy to get some attention.

Must be in her blood!

You never hear a prominent Democrat trying to distance the party from:

Michael Moore
George Soros
ACORN
NAMBLA
Communists
Violent Greens

etc.

Why do the Country Club Republicans seem to have the weakling need to make sure their Country Club friends know that they are “not one of those people”???

Let everyone contribute. Coulter does not claim to speak for everyone in the Party. Coulter does not try to shut anyone else up.

What in the world is the problem?

the reason she doesn’t understand Ann is because....

SHE’S A LIBERAL FOR GOD’S SAKE

She admitted that she VOTED for sKerry in 2004. How in the hell can she have any iota of conservatism in her plump little body if she can justify in her mind a vote for that loser??

I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time.

That's because, Miss McCain, you're stupid.

It's as simple as that.

Quality of life, the sanctity of the family and the security and future of America are too important to be left to the fads of the self proclaimed “hip”.

That is why we have an egotistical, racist airhead in the White House - because people thought it was hip to vote for Obama because of his skin color.

From reading this, I think it has something to do with “hips”.

Like, Megan’s got big ones (nothing wrong with that) and wants smaller ones like Ann’s...

Meghan is a moron and she knows it. My Mom saw an interview with her during the campaign and the first thing she said was “McCain’s daughter talks like an idiot.” No shock that she would spew this crap, she voted for John Kerry of all people. She never has anything nice to say about Sarah Palin, yeah the woman that busted her ass for her old man while he sat back and did nothing. Now she disses Ann Coulter..Hey Meghan, you sure talk a lot, how about saying it to her face!!

Yep, most 0bama voters voted that way so that they could "be part of history" and "vote for the cool black guy" and didn't give a thought to, or denied, the fact that he is a communist.

The rest voted for him BECAUSE he was a communist.

I happen to dislike her -- her penchant for self-promotion and going for shock value wore thin for me a long time ago. Too much "Ann" and too little meat. Ann hasn't been 25 for over 20 years....when you're that old, the "blonde" thing is no excuse for lack of depth.

Coulter could be the poster woman for the most extreme side of the Republican Party. And in some ways I could be the poster woman for the opposite. I consider myself a progressive Republican

What is a "progressive republican?" One that embraces government spending, government regulation, government control of every aspect of the serfs' lives. In short nothing but a liberal democrat by another name. Sorry toots. I'll take Coulter over your moronic stance any day even if she doesn't have a clue about what goes on the Cornell Ag School. She can be forgiven for that since the A&S types have to tell themselves that they're superior otherwise they have to face the fact that their daddy's are paying a whole hell of a lot more for an education than they should.
