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).

Your generation is about to learn a very, very tough lesson. I’m sure they will have an attitude adjustment soon when are forced to worry about putting food on the table rather than what or who is currently considered “hip.”

Hipness doesn't do squat for fixing the financial system or dealing with national security threats, you twit.

She is only offensive to liberals.
If she is radical, then so am I.
She insults the left who so often deserve it.
You sound confused.

“hip” the very idea of a political stance being “hip” is revulsive, and pathetic. these are life & death matters. do... you... see?

The question is: do you?

You and I may both hate it, but the fact is that "hipness" is politically vitally important these days.

“I used to think more of her until I found out she had a penchant for liberal men.”

Then why did she say she would never date a liberal man?

I never did see this original show with Bob Denver, they didn’t syndicate it during the years I grew up. I agree with everyone here on this, who gives a rat’s a** what or who is hip? Being hip is basically being arrogant and looking down your nose at everybody who shops at Walmart.

Speaking of Bob Denver: who would you rather be on a desert island with, someone who’s hip or someone who is competent?

On the assumption that this lady is McLame’s wife, I can understand why she’s upset with a lady who tells it like it is. Ann is a God-send, and is so funny with the jacka$$es she confronts.

I was hoping George W would have nominated her to the Supreme Court just so she’d have a chance to tell off the murderer, theifs, and liars on that committee. God bless Ann Coulter, and I hope she’s around for a long, long time.

It’s not only a question of what’s hip anymore. Technology has made everything...should I say “obsolete?” It seems nothing is enduring today..values, honor, patriotism anything we learned years ago as children is no longer valuable in this age of throw-away gadgets and silicon chips. We used to vote for what was good for the country, not for this group or that cause. It degrades the human spirit, in my humble opinion, to validate things of little substance which are here today..fleetingly.. and of no value tomorrow. This is the mantra of Meghan McCain and everyone like her. She’s about as Republican as the ones who voted for this asinine simulus package....no thought for tomorrow.

Yes, it is soooo important to determine our poilical leaders by first determing the "hipness" factor for each.

The Leftist brain dead Obamaniacs truly fear Coulter....

She has more “balls and testosterone” than the entire DNC and most of the Republican “party”....and is bright, beautiful, fearless and combative..

How can a conservative NOT love her?

I straight up don’t understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time.

I guess if she has a choice between Obama and her old man, it's Obama.

I find Ann to be straightforward, clear, moderate, and sensitive.

Seriously, Ann can be blunt to the point of being rough around the edges. Great Caesar's Ghost! How long have we waited for such a conservative spokesperson who is in such high demand? I would say if Ann confuses a person, said person should never stray without an escort.

My ONLY problem with Ann is I wish to highest heaven that someone would give that poor girl a sandwich.

Otherwise, I'm happy as a clam to have her speaking for conservatives. Republicans would do well to study her lines.

I don’t know, because she was apparently kissy kissy times with Bill Maher and then she was in a relationship with Andrew Stein, the former president of the New York City Council, a liberal Democrat. She also dated Bob Guccione, Jr. who founded Spin magazine and writes for the Huffington Post. She has dated conservatives too, but I’m just saying what her history is. It just confused me a little is all, especially as hard lined as she is. I’m not saying I don’t like her, I just questioned her.

“So you became part of the new breed.
Been smoking only the best weed.
Hanging out with so-called hippest set.
Been seen in all the right places,
Seen with just the right faces.
You should be satisfied,
But still it ain’t quite right.

What is hip? Tell me tell me if you think you know.
What is hip? And if you’re really hip.
The passing years would show,
That you into a hip trip, maybe hipper than hip.
What is hip?” - Tower of Power

Have you read any of her books? If you call the truth "shock value," then I might agree with you.

Here's a Coulter classic on Bush's support of amnesty: Bush's America: Roach Motel. Plenty of shock [truth] and plenty of meat.

“I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time.” I find Megan McCain to be a ditz. Seriously, what does she bring to the Republican table but a Republican-lite dose of the personal destruction of other Republicans? Ann, on the other hand, is part of the “cult” that has been fighting to keep the Republican Party out in front since before little Megan was potty trained. Tell us Megan, what do you believe in. What is your vision for the Republican Party, your philosophy, your suggestions for policies. Do you have something to contribute that will work, or do you imitate liberals and smear the enemy? Most of all Megan, can’t you find something useful to do before you get into politics?

It’s not speculation that she dated Andrew or Bob, it’s absolutely true. She even mentioned it when she was interviewed by that chick from the View subbing for Larry King the other week. The only speculation is Bill Maher.

“Ann’s thin, hot, and immensely popular with Conservative men...

and I’m not.”

Hot? I will never understand how anyone can think that lady is hot. She’s kind of a blond Olive Oil from the Popeye cartoon to me and she has a really nasty disposition. She can be witty and smart, but could you imagine being married to someone like her? Pretty soon she’s going to get mad at you about something you do or fail to do and you will never hear the end of it from her. I could never be married to someone like her. I’d put her on the street in no time.

She is thin and popular. “Hot” is a big stretch though.

the cult that follows Coulter cannot be denied

That "cult" is composed of people with brains, something that you apparently haven't grown yet, Megan.

It takes experience, and knowledge, and learning the issues and deep examination of the issues, and learning the history of the issues. It's not about issuing empty rhetoric, such as you are, Megan. It take wisdom and experience to get to the level of a Coulter or a Limbaugh, or to get to the level of those that "follow" a Coulter or a Limbaugh.

You, my dear Megan, have a lot of maturing to do and a lot of learning to do. You need to get out of the sheltered life you've had up till now and go out into the real world. Until you get to that point, it's best that you stick with the ignorant that elected "the one" which you seem to admire so much.

Perhaps sometime in your future, you'll wake up and ask yourself, "how could I have been so stupid?". I know, I used to be exactly like you when I was in my teens and early 20s.

I always find it amazing after all this time that people don’t “get” Ann Coulter, she baits dummies with dripping sarcasm and brutal truths, speaking with the bluntness of a truck driver and the rapier wit of a great comedian.

She has never offeneded my tender sensibilities ONCE, everything “controversial” she says is wrapped in double-entendre’s, sarcasm, and lays bare the hypocrisies of the left.

She’s playing chess and her detractors are playing checkers. It’s like she’s dealing with spoiled, crying children who say don’t say “it” again, she looks at them and says the word “it” and they go running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.

If she was a liberal writer/comedian she would be celebrated as one of the greatest thinkers in the country.

She is not the average kid. She is the daughter of a US Senator and was on the stump for her father for months. If she doesn't get it, then it has more to to with being dumb than young. The fact that she admitted voting for Kerry gives you an idea as to where she is coming from. I am not about to give her any more slack than I would Ron Reagan Jr.
