Ann Coulter's latest foot-in-mouth

Ya gotta give it to this broad. She's tougher than most guys. But when she stirs things up, there's no half measures. Here's a link to the transcript from "The Big Idea" episode in the spotlight:

She's explaining to Donny Deutsch (a Jew) how the Christians (like her) "just want Jews to be perfected, as they say."

... "that is what Christians consider themselves: perfected Jews "

Ahhh, Ann baby.

Even if one doesn't espouse her point of view.......you gotta admit she's much better looking than let's say....Paul Craig Roberts.
That is.....if you're of the male persuasion...

not dumb, but not entirely intelligent. If so she'd know her facts. I wonder how many people are simply amazed that she's a good looking girl and knows something about politics?

I've seen it in the work place where a girl does a guys job and when she does it as good as the guys some have troubles seeing the quality of the work over the gender of the worker.

I personally find her attractive only when her mouth is closed. When it's open she looks like George Bush.

Now Ramzi Yousef (yes, that one) is now a perfect Jew too. He's converted to Christianity while in supermax. Cool. Oh ANN!!! Come look!


MASTERMIND OF FIRST TWIN TOWERS ATTACK CLAIMS HE HAS CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY
Thu Oct 11 2007 13:19:11 ET

Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, claims he converted from Islam to Christianity, Scott Pelley reports in a story that brings viewers inside the secretive "Supermax" prison where he is being held. Pelley also reports that some 900 force feedings were performed on other al-Qaeda terrorists who went on repeated hunger strikes to protest conditions at the Colorado top-security federal prison. The 60 MINUTES segment will be broadcast Sunday Oct. 14 (7:30-9:00 PM, ET/7:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The prison in Florence, Colo., which the government calls ADX-Florence for Administrative Maximum, houses the nation's toughest and most infamous criminals, such as Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph, would-be 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols and shoe bomber Richard Reid. 60 MINUTES obtained exclusive footage of prisoners inside the facility, where special-case prisoners are allowed only a phone call a month, spend 23 hours a day in their 12-by-7 cells and can get mail only from people approved by the prison.

Robert Hood, its warden from 2002 to 2005, says Yousef was a special case. He never left his cell because he did not want to face the indignity of a strip search required for recreation. "He has that Charlie Manson look," says Hood of Yousef. "He has some charisma about him. He's in [prison] uniform, but you know that there's a powerful person you're looking at," Hood says. Told that Yousef has begun leaving his cell and now claims to be a Christian, Hood says, "He's playing a game with someone. If he's doing that, he's doing it for the reaction....He is the real deal," he tells Pelley. As a Muslim, Yousef prayed almost every hour, remembers Hood.

Other Qaeda terrorists protested the special conditions with hunger strikes that Hood had to end with force feedings. "I probably...authorized, conducted 350, maybe 400 involuntary feedings," recalls Hood. "You could have one person, three meals a day for...two months."

Pelley also speaks with a corrections officer inside ADX-Florence, who tells him what she heard on 9/11 after terrorist prisoners saw the destruction on their televisions. "We had a lot of them jump up and down. ...scream and yell and clap and they were very excited," says Barbara Batulis, who heads the prison's staff union. She also characterizes the Muslim extremists as needy. "They want more than what they have coming," she says. "They want extra toilet paper...writing paper...extra envelopes and if you can't give them, they want to see a supervisor right then and there."

Batulis would rather work among the other prisoners because she is female. "It's very obvious, [Muslim extremists] just look at you with sheer disdain." Hate can turn into threats. "A terrorist inmate threatened to kill my family, because I was doing my job," Batulis tells Pelley. Batulis says the prison needs more officers. "...We are very short staffed. I firmly believe that staff lives are at stake," she says.

I don’t see the problem. Isn’t it generally the nature of relegion to believe their relegion is superior. If we are going to hate Ann for this we might as well hate just about everyone that exudes any confidince in their beliefes.

What's been lost in all this is the fact that the quest for human perfection is a Nazi ideal. And nobody exemplifies that crazed ideal more than does Coulter who hate filled rants have been excused for far too long by her allies in the extreme right.

Gopher Writes:
"What's been lost in all this is the fact that the quest for human perfection is a Nazi ideal. And nobody exemplifies that crazed ideal more than does Coulter who hate filled rants have been excused for far too long by her allies in the extreme right."

From Wikipedia:
"The term reductio ad Hitlerum (sometimes rendered reductio ad Hitlerem )—whimsical Latin for "reduction to Hitler"—was originally coined by University of Chicago professor and ethicist Leo Strauss. The phrase comes from the better known logical argument reductio ad absurdum . It is a variety of association fallacy and may also be described as argumentum ad nazium, though some distinguish the latter as referring to Nazi actions or beliefs with reductio ad Hitlerum being reserved for arguments involving Hitler himself. The relative frequency of such comparisons in Usenet discussions led to the formulation of Godwin's Law in 1990. The reductio ad Hitlerum fallacy assumes the form of "Adolf Hitler (or the Nazi party) supported X; therefore X must be evil/undesirable/bad, etc"; or, less commonly, "Adolf Hitler was against X; therefore X must be good, desirable, praiseworthy, etc." This fallacy is often effective due to the near-instant condemnation of anything to do with Hitler or the Nazis.
It is important to understand that those policies advocated by Hitler and his party which are generally considered evil are all condemned by themselves, not because Hitler supported them. In other words: genocide and Aryan white supremacism (for example) are not considered evil because Hitler advocated them, but rather Hitler is considered evil because he advocated them.
The fallacious nature of Reductio ad Hitlerum is best illustrated by identifying X as something that Adolf Hitler or his supporters did promote but which is not considered unethical — for example, X = "building expressways", X = "painting watercolors", X = "owning dogs", X = vegetarianism. It may also be refuted through counterexamples:"

What has been lost in the effort to make no one feel bad is to replace striving for excellence with striving for meritocracy.

If Ann Coulter is an example of a 'christian', who would ever want to be one.I'd rather be a scum

sucking leech, than be on the same page as her. Whatever she is I will be the opposite with pride.

And the opposite of And Colter would be Homer Simpson?

I don't think what Gopher said qualifies as Reductio ad Hitlerem. Striving for perfection is not necessarilly a bad thing, it is when it involves a focussed effort to either wipe out, or convert a group to your way of thinking. Not only does she think they should be converted, she says America would be a better place if there were less Jews. Maybe she doesn't realize just how similar that stance is to that of the Aryan Brotherhood. In this case the comparison of Nazis and Coulter's statements are correct.

Amen to that.

And who was Leo Strauss? The inspiration for the treasonous neoconnivers.

Even ultra conservative Daniel J Flynn condemned him for his right wing mysticism in his book Intellectual Morons.

Did anyone see the interview CBC had with her? She was slamming us for not going to Iraq, and brought up the fact that Canada went to Vietnam with the Americans. When informed by the reporter that Canada was not involved in that war, she was quite sure we were. When the reporter again said no, she said that perhaps she should check into that. It's true that Canadians served in the war, but not under the banner of the CF. I'd say theres probably lots she should look into before blurting out mental farts.

I am still out on Ann Coulter - to have all those brains and use them for such cruelty seems a waste - but it makes her portfolio bulge - yet she seems empty. I would not want to be Ann Coulter - even though I would enjoy having her brains - but they seem to hold her back from enjoying real life.

Regarding her physical attributes - Although I have no proof, I think Ann has Marfan's Syndrome - but as she has not disclosed it - or perhaps has a mild case - she may not realize and if she has none of the terrible symptoms of the disease, could be only exhibiting physical 'strangeness' such as elongated neck, fingers, torso, legs, etc. Still I would be surprised if her own doctor had not tested her simply because of the length of her neck and hands....

I have only mentioned this once before and was blasted for my stupidity - I hope you folks will be kinder - I am not a doc but I know a woman with the disability and learned quite a bit from her.

Never heard of Marfan's syndrome. I would wager that most haven't so it would be rather presumptuous of me to jump all over you for it...

hmm... I'd never really thought about it Curio, you may be right. It's highly rare, but especially so in women isn't it? I had always thought it was a strictly male thing. But then, many things that are attributed mainly to males seem to crop up more and more in women these days. Ankylosing spondylitis is one that jumps readily to mind as it's touched my family.

Well there was made mention of an adams apple. And just because she looks like a woman doesn't mean she hasn't some hermaphrodite characteristics.

Well according to the great tome of internet knowledge, it is a roughly even split amongst the genders.

When you have it, there is a 50/50 shot of passing it on to your kid(s) due to the genetic dominance it exerts. And further, 15-30 of all cases are due to the random nature of changing base pairs(duplications, deletions and inversion.)

Thanks for accepting what I said - I hate to mention it after what happened once before.

I met another woman who corresponded with me back and forth about her disease - her son also has it - and found her ( and her son as well) to be gifted with high IQ, many physical disabilities, bone and ligament issues, eyesight problems and a host of other seemingly unrelated things.

When I first saw Coulter I was taken by her very long neck, and then when she had her hands at rest on the podium during her interview - her the longbones of her arm were really long as were her fingers.

I still don't know that much about Marfan's and hope that is not the case - but only that she inherited a very elongated bone structure from another family member.

I think Ann is getting a hard time here because she doesn’t speak in youthanisms. If someone believes that Christianity is a superior value system then why wouldn’t they believe the world would be a better place if more people shared that value system.

Believing that it would be a good thing if more people would practice Cristianity is far different then a mass genocide or inqistion of those that don’t. I don’t share Ans view that Crhistians have a superior ethic but why are we singling Ann out when just about any person in every relegion believes their releigion is the one relleion, the right relegion and the superior relegion. I detest people who attack the character of others rather then chalange their ideas. I strongly believe this is a case of Reductio ad Hitlerem and I think it is a week line of reasoning and thinking.
