Skip to comments.Bad Inventions ... Ann Coulter
Posted on 01/03/2013 5:17:06 AM PST by Rummyfan
I am bored with politics, refuse to pay attention to the news and am watching only True Crime TV shows and Turner Classic Movies these days. With the Democrats controlling the Senate and presidency, nothing good can possibly come out of Washington for at least another two years. So I thought I'd start the new year with something useful, like a short list of bad inventions.
(1) SILENT DISHWASHERS
Are people installing dishwashers next to their beds? I've checked my "Top 500 Daily Irritations" list and dishwasher noise is not on it.
What possible benefit derives from having a dishwasher that makes absolutely no noise? Was that gentle whooshing sound driving some homeowners bonkers? Is this a product designed by the same people who gave us the electric car, a vehicle so silent that the first sign of its approach is the sound of your pelvis breaking as the car hits you?
Not only are the virtues of a silent dishwasher elusive, but there's one big disadvantage: You can't tell if it's running. A dishwasher doesn't have to sound like the Concorde blasting off to provide some indication that the thing is working.

Wow, you guys get the award for closest simultaneous posts ever!
I take it then that Ann never lived in an 800 square foot apartment.
So she is done bashing the Republicans since the election is over, She can’t bash the democrats. So now she wastes her time with this. Plus she looks like Howard Stern in drag.
the electric car, a vehicle so silent that the first sign of its approach is the sound of your pelvis breaking as the car hits you?
love it........now that`s Ann
After her dismal 2012, it looks like Annie has decided to write about things other than politics.
She’s auditioning to be the next Dave Barry...or Andy Rooney.
Not her nonsense again, she supported Romeny and helped him early on get the nomination and she loves Chris “the fat man rino” Christie.
Ann go away, she should be banned from this site.
Guess that's all Coulter has left...
I lost my respect for Ann when I realized she was mostly just flogging her book sales.
Then she backed Romney and that was it.
(I mean a lot of us backed Romney at the end out of anti-Obama-ism, but she was in early)
The “Energy Star” motors in dishwashers are about the size of tennis balls these days. A lot easier to make them quiet since they don’t do much. They used to be huge and the dishes got clean. Now, it’s common that stuff remains on things.
Ann....your 15 minutes are up....now go away.
Bad Invention: Anorexic political pundits who betray the people buying their books, and when repeatedly proved to be wrong, decide they really don’t like politics after all.
Actually I like the hands free bathroom fixtures in public restrooms.
Washed up skeleton bag hag Ann Corpse is reduced to spewing drivel. May she rot in hell.
Uh.... sorry Anne. My quiet dishwasher was well worth the extra $150 I paid. I would bet that you’ve never lived in a place with a contractors dishwasher. Damn things are so loud you have to turn the TV volume up to stun to be able to hear it. I suspect that my “quiet” dishwasher I paid extra for is what Anne is referring to when she speaks about a “gentle whoosh”. There is NOTHING “gentle” about a base level dishwasher. I’ve never seen a totally “silent” dishwasher, but just about anything that eliminates noise pollution is good in my book.
Ah, c’mon—she’s been in virtual hiding since her beloved chris christie didn’t make the top.
Agreed, we love our Bosch!
Pretty weak stuff here. That’s the column? Pretending to believe that a “silent” dishwasher — usually installed within 20 feet or so of the living room TV — should make everybody’s blood boil?
