New Year, Same Ann Coulter
It's 2005, and Ann Coulter is still Ann Coulter, cuttingly witty, always ready with devastating comments about liberals and Democrats, who she says are pretty much the same, and still capable of inflicting deep wounds in the twisted psyches of both species.
In a recent interview with the New York Observer published in the current issue, Ann displayed her utter contempt for political correctness, firing verbal salvos at the nation's most sacred cows and complimenting Bill Clinton on being "a very good rapist."
The interview was vintage Coulter, and here are some of the highlights:
On liberals - "I sort of like liberals now. Theyre kind of cute when theyre shivering and afraid. Theyre so pathetic and sad. They cant come up with a fight. I mean, if the best youre going to give me to argue about is Rumsfelds auto-pen ..."
On the peace-loving left - "Forget what they say, they are violent. They were slashing tires on Election Day. I was physically attacked this year. It is a funny thing, that they ended up in prisonenjoying the benefits of gay marriage. Let em try it again, theyll end up dead."
On Democrats - She's rooting for the Nancy Pelosi faction of the Democratic Party ("I think this is the dominant faction," she says) taking the position that Democratic ideas are fine - no need to change anything, even though the Dems got stomped on Election Day. Mocking Pelosi, Coulter lampoons, "We just need to advertise RU-486 at NASCAR or something thatll do the trick!"
"Democrats always have these open public discussions on how they can fake out the American people, so thats one wing 'Lets not tell them what we believe' and the other wing is, 'Our message is perfect.'"
On why 2004 was a great year - "Im thinking about putting up a reward on my Web page for any liberal who will mention either Afghanistan or the Kurds. I mean, 85 percent of Iraq is free ... Kurds are free, are happy, are dancing in the streets, and liberals simply wont mention them. Theyve had elections and women vote, and they didnt vote for some crazy, lunatic mullahs. So thats a pretty good year."
On Iraq, where Christmas wasn't very merry - "Were going to transform the Middle East by the time Bush leaves office, or it will be within shouting distance of there. I think Arabs flying planes into our skyscrapers will be as likely as a Japanese kamikaze pilot."
On North Korea - "I think we ought to nuke North Korea right now just to give the rest of the world a warning ... despite that wonderful peace deal Madeline Albright negotiated with the North Koreans, six seconds before they feverishly began developing nuclear weapons. Theyre a major threat. I just think it would be fun to nuke them and have it be a warning to the rest of the world."
On another invasion - "Iran. Though thats the beauty part of Iraq: It may well not be necessary."
On President Bush - "We have a President who can do what he thinks is right, whether or not there are a bunch of liberals carping, and no matter what the letter writers to The New York Times have to say about being ashamed for their country."
On Hilary Clinton - If the Dems nominated her for president "it would be a lot of fun. The advantage Hillary has is the crazies which is to say, the base of the Democratic party love her, adore her, no matter what she says or does. She can come out for curbing illegal immigration. She could come out for parental notification and against partial-birth abortion and the crazies will still say, No, shes our gal. She is Madame Hillary."
Asked if she had a perverse admiration for Hillary, Coulter shrieked: "Ewwww, no. As with John Kerry, I generally dont admire people who get ahead on somebody elses coattails. Shes like the anti-feminist. No, except she isnt because all feminists behave that way and pretend to be, Oh, Im a strong woman. Theyre all weak and pathetic ... "
On a possible TV show - With Al Franken? "No, hes physically repulsive. I have friends I trust who are smart who would put together a good TV show, and I can tell you straight out, weve basically given up. There is no liberal worthy of debating me, and I wont do a TV show unless I have a liberal counterpart." With Maureen Dowd? "No. I promise you, she wouldnt do it shes whiny, shes not funny. What were looking for is good-looking, male, liberal, half a brain. They dont even have to be smart.
Who, then? "The one person I really want to sit down with and figure out why he thinks hes a liberal is Larry David [co-creator of "Seinfeld," star of HBO's hilariously nasty "Curb Your Enthusiasm"] ... thats the most brilliant TV show it is conservative humor, and you cant tell me its not. Its all politically incorrect. And people I know whove worked with him say hes really sweet, so there is nothing about him that should make him a liberal and yet he flew from Los Angeles to Boston to sit at the Democratic National Convention. He cant be a liberal! I would bet you anything if Larry David were 20 years old, he would be a right-wing lunatic."
On what to remember about Bill Clinton - "Well, he was a very good rapist. I think that should not be forgotten. I dont think its fading.
"Clinton talk[ed] on the phone with Congressmen about sending American troops to the Balkans while being serviced by Monica Lewinsky under the desk. And liberals didnt mind that but theyre upset that George Bush waited 48 hours to fly back from Crawford, Tex." to make any announcements about tsunami relief.
On Rudy Giuliani - "I love Guiliani, but I just think he needs to switch his position on abortion. Were a pro-life party. And I dont think half the country realizes he claims to be pro-choice. These New York Republicans, they dont have a feel for the red states like I do. They say, Oh, now, we could run a pro-choice candidate and that would get moderates in the Northeast to vote for us and those right-wing Christians, theyll vote for us anyway. No, they wont!"
On what it was like to spend Christmas in New York - "Oh, it was so much fun this year, because saying Merry Christmas is like saying F... you! Ive said it to everyone. You know, cab drivers, passing people on the street, whatever. And they come up with the Happy holidays. Merry Christmas, I mean, it really is an aggressive act in New York."
If only she'd eat something once in a while.
Ssshhhh, but I took a picture of her eating a strawberry!
Only two words describe my feelings for Ann Coulter..."Marry me!!!".
Now THAT'S "How to Talk to a Liberal, If You Must!"
Vintage Ann! My favorite quote: "And liberals didnt mind that but theyre upset that George Bush waited 48 hours to fly back from Crawford, Tex." to make any announcements about tsunami relief." Now the liberals are upset that Bush paired his father and Clinton in the tsunami relief effort.
God Bless her. :-)
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! Best laugh I've had today, B! My gourmet cooking could *plump* her up in a few weeks.
Some people are never happy...
"I just think it would be fun to nuke them"
Yeah - slaughtering a few million people because of one asshat dictator would be sooooo much fun, Ann! Not to mention how happy it would make God!
Sorry, but anyone who thinks that detonating nuclear weapons would be "fun" is sick. I'm sure that many Muslims thought that 9-11 was a load of fun too.
Some people are never happy...
"On what it was like to spend Christmas in New York - "Oh, it was so much fun this year, because saying Merry Christmas is like saying F... you!"
LOL!! This woman is the new Mark Twain!!
I get such a kick out of Ann Coulter! Sometimes, though, she's too hard right for me...I'm pro-choice through the first trimester. That withstanding, Ms. Coulter is a genius, well educated, well-bred, attractive and feminine without being a bubble head. I'd like to see her go toe to toe with Madame Hillary.
Thanks for more ANN- I wish Ann would get her oen TV show, or at least a weekly commentary spot
PS still waiting for her response to my marriage proposal... waiting... waiting...
I love the part about Larry David. I, too, think Curb Your Enthusiasm is a witty, intelligent show that plays to conservatives well by showing how silly political correctness is and how much trouble Larry gets into for no reason just because he doesn't play games. I've also wondered why, apart from the way he was probably raised and his Hollywood affiliation, someone so uncorrect in his humor could be a lib.
I think it would be fun. Movies such as Trinity and Beyond are excellent.
Regarding nuking NK, I would have no problem if Pres. Bush laid it on the table and told them, any attack on the US or our allies by NK, regardless of scale or weapons used will result in the use of nuclear weapons in response.
Or if Pres. Bush made it policy and publicly announced it that the United States has targeted 5 muslim capitals (unnamed), and any terrorist attack on the US will result in their destruction by nuclear weapon.
