Bad Inventions ... Ann Coulter
Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 2 Jan 2013 | 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.

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.

After her dismal 2012, it looks like Annie has decided to write about things other than politics.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Ann, Ann, Ann... Please stick to politics. This crap just isn't making it. It's like a bad High School essay written only because it was due the next day. Humor must have a element of truth to be funny; this fails.

I would love to have a silent dishwasher. I have not yet sold enough books to have my kitchen so far away from my living room that I cannot hear mine and it is rather quiet. If you actually know of a dishwasher that is so quiet that you have to place your ear against the side to hear it, THAT would be worth telling us about. BTW - When I buy it I will just look at the run time clock to see when the wash cycle is done, thanks. You may want to pour through your owners manual on that one when you get done working on your phone volume.

As for the phone, I use the ring volume to turn off the ringer. I like my phone. I have no trouble turning off the ringer. I didn't use the manual to accomplish this task that is seemingly on the same level as string theory. If you don't like your phone go buy another one. Post your address and I'll donate to the relief effort.

The first place I used one of those high powered hand dryers was an airport. It was the same for automatic faucets and automatic towel dispensers. I am grateful to airports for implementing this due to the high volume of people and the likelihood of illness transmission. The same goes for rest stops on interstate highways. In my experience it is rare that something doesn't work and if there IS a malfunction I have figured out how to implement a difficult and arduous contingency procedure: I step to the side and use the one next to it. Now, a bit about how some faucets are turned up so high that they make a guy look like he wizzed all over himself may have been funny, but probably would not have worked for you. Oh well.

Ann: Leave the actual humor to Dave Barry. This is not for you. (PS - Eat Something!)

It's like being blindfolded and told you are being taken someplace to eat. When the blindfold is removed you realize you are in a Denny's. Then you find out it's the one in Ill that kicked out the cops for wearing their sidearms. To top it all off they serve you three grand slams...

And you didn't think there was a reason for spontaneous bulimia, did you?

Me too. After following the 4 step hand cleaning instructions above the sink, the only other time I need to use my hands is to twist the fecal-laden door handle to get out.

Perhaps if Miss Coulter, Hannity, Limbaugh etc. would have pursued the Constitutional eligibility issue day one she would not have to write about dishwashers. Dishwashers?

I hate to say that "I hate to say it," but I'm on the same page with Ann when it comes to TCM. I'll bet their ratings are through the roof.

The rest of the column is phoned in. We could all use a sabbatical. Not all of us worked as hard to get Christie, and then Romney, the GOP nomination.

Too bad there's no retreat from tomorrow.

long gone are the days when posetrs required that the rules be followed and pictures of Anne be posted in each thread. Still there are some here in drag attempting to reinvent Anne to the masses on FR, my guess is one of her supporters her is actually her.

Anyway, hope people just stop posting this tramps trash here, I mean after all she dated Bill Maher for God’s sake and for all we know she may still be dating him.

By her own admission, she has been engaged at least four times, shacked up with Andrew Stein, the NYC ultra-lib, and "dated" a Muzzie stalker (really). Mental problems.
