Schlafly has been a roll model to me for years & years!

Ann is extremely articulate & well educated..... why does she have to dress like that?

It almost belies what comes out of her very intelligent mouth.

I know you guys will disagree......

...but Mrs. Schlafly, like our President's wife, walks the same walk as her talk.
...and with grace & dignity.

Pot, calling kettle. Come in, over...

It would be too easy to say that you make / example some of Coulter's very points

............lacked in linear thinking, they made up for in viciousness...........

While :

She is brilliant, beautiful, principled, articulate, tireless and, most important, absolutely fearless.

....... could easily be said of Coulter

"...she actually believes her own crap..."

I doubt it. Wasn't she dating a muslim few months after calling for the forced conversion of everyone in Afganistan?

Ann is a bomb-thrower, and no question about it. But her redemption is that she argues with the facts, rather than against them or in ignorance of them, and provides as many citations as the available space will permit.

I can remember only one column of hers that I disagreed with severely -- it was a War on Drugs piece, shortly after the Connecticut Libertarian Party had declined to nominate her for Congress -- and it was notable for wishing away the known facts, as opposed to embracing them and dealing with them as they deserved. (I have to admit that I don't remember her column about Norman Mineta.)

My wife is currently reading Slander. That's more noteworthy than you might think, as Beth never reads anything but murder mysteries. Her observations to date:

Credit where credit is due, I say. And she does have very nice hair.

"She is neither beautiful, principled or articulate."

Huh? That's funny. I have never heard of any of your accomplishments! May I ask how you contribute? Or is it just a little sense of jealousy??? I think it is the latter.

Have a Wonderful Day!

My dyslexia is playing tricks on me today. A quick glance at the title led me to believe this article had something to do with an STD.

Just checked out YOUR pic here.

Yep, you have issues.

Amazing that after her appearance on Crossfire last week, all Car-vile could talk about afterwards was why the Democraps don't have an attractive female to promote the left's point of view.

Alongside her looks, with which you seem to be pre-occupied, she has always appeared with facts to back-up any point she wishes to make, unlike her debate opponent who usually just screams to be heard over her argument.

As far as accomplishments? Two books on the NYT best seller list come to mind right away. Before that a lawyer with the Justice Department(?) and you know they don't hire based on "appearances" but on academic achievement.

It would be easy to dismiss anything Ann says if you depend on what she looks like to base your opinion on, however if you close your eyes or are blind, you couldn't tell if she was blonde, brunette, old, young, Bella Abzug or bombshell. It's the point she makes that gets across.

I'm trying to recall Ann's list of accomplishments before being noticed as "ta daaaaaaa" - a blonde.
If you are in fact serious, HERE is a good place to start, from


Ann Coulter is a lawyer and author of the New York Times best seller, High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton. Her most recent book, Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, is a number one New York Times Best-Seller.

Coulter is the legal correspondent for Human Events and writes a popular syndicated column for Universal Press Syndicate. She is a frequent guest on many TV shows, including Politically Incorrect, Larry King Live, Hannity and Colmes, The O'Reilly Factor, American Morning With Paula Zahn,
Crossfire, ABC’s “This Week,” Good Morning America, the Leeza Show, and has been profiled in TV Guide, National Journal, Harper’s Bazaar, and George Magazine. She was named one of the top 100 Public Intellectuals by federal judge Richard Posner in 2001.

Coulter clerked for the Honorable Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and was an attorney in the Department of Justice Honors Program for outstanding law school graduates.

After practicing law in private practice in New York City, Coulter worked for the Senate Judiciary Committee, where she handled crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan. From there, she became a litigator with the Center For Individual Rights in Washington, DC, a public interest law firm dedicated to the defense of individual rights with particular emphasis on freedom of speech, civil rights, and the free exercise of religion.

A Connecticut native, Coulter graduated with honors from Cornell University School of Arts & Sciences, and received her J.D. from University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor of The Michigan Law Review.

She is neither beautiful, principled or articulate.

Besides being an anorexic opportunist, her rhetoric is loaded with hyperbole - and judgin by her live appearances, she actually believes her own crap.

She'd been annoying for years, but she finally slipped over the edge with me when she mocked Mineta's experience in the internment camps as a child, and called it no big deal.

Agree or disagree with the man's methods, being locked into something akin to prison as a 10 year old, and knowing your family lost all assets just because of your racial background is a horrific experience, and will affect you the rest of your life. For her to say it was no big deal indicates a fundamental lack of character, integrity and compassion.

For the record, here is Ann's attack on Mineta - posted in its entirety - from

Mineta's Bataan Death March

February 28, 2002

According to initial buoyant reports in early February, enraged travelers rose up in a savage attack on the secretary of transportation. Hope was dashed when later reports indicated that the irritated travelers were actually rival warlords, the airport was the Kabul Airport, and Norman Mineta was still with us.

Thanks to the hard work of the Department of Transportation, which had already arrogated to itself responsibility for commercial air safety, 19 Muslim terrorists had absolutely no difficulty in turning four planes into cruise missiles almost simultaneously on Sept. 11, resulting in the death of thousands of Americans.

Outside of government work, that's known as a "failure." But in the government, it is grounds for greater responsibility. In its wisdom, Congress turned over yet more power to the Department of Transportation: Nice work – what else can you do for us?

Almost instantly, dreary, wrathful federal bureaucrats conceived of methods to make air travel still worse. Even those of us who burn with an all-consuming hatred for federal bureaucracies had to tip our hats.

First, the government prohibited airport screeners from looking for terrorists. Second, the government scrapped airline pricing systems that allow passengers to pay $2,000 to avoid 50-minute lines. Just like in the Soviet Union of beloved memory, "equality" was the important thing. (Except government officials like Cabinet official Tommy Thompson, who skip the airport lines.) We'll all die, but at least we'll all die together.

The only bright side is that in the government's obsessive drive for "equality," perhaps airport security guards will be forced to start searching Arabs now, too.

Ethnic profiling is the only reasonable security measure that has been thwarted in the war on terrorism. Every other anti-American, left-wing attack on the war has failed miserably. Liberals denounced military tribunals, FBI interviews with Arab student visitors, the detention of terrorism suspects, monitoring conversations of jailed terrorists and the treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo.

All to no avail – except ethnic profiling.

The whole country knows that goosing little old ladies boarding planes is not going to make us any safer. Even left-wing lawyer Floyd Abrams had the sense to say: "There's a big difference between being interned and being searched a little more at an airport." But we can't stop it. Transportation Secretary Mineta is angry and he wants America to suffer.

In early December, "60 Minutes" host Steve Kroft interviewed Mineta about his dogged refusal to permit an extra check of people who look like the next and last 50 terrorists.

Kroft noted that of 22 people on the most-wanted list right now: "[A]ll but one of them has complexion listed as olive. They all have dark hair and brown eyes. And more than half of them have the name Mohammed." (They are also all males in their 20s and 30s.) Thus, he asked Mineta if such people should be subjected to a little extra scrutiny. "No," Mineta responded, "not just on that basis alone."

Other more important factors, Mineta explained, included asking "things like, 'Did you pay cash for this ticket or charge it on a credit card? Do you have a one-way ticket or a round-trip?'"

Inasmuch as this was Steve Kroft and not Diane Sawyer conducting the interview, there was a relevant follow-up question: "Did the terrorists who flew into the World Trade Center have one-way tickets?" No, Mineta admitted, the Sept. 11 hijackers all had round-trip tickets they bought with credit cards.

Let the record reflect that among President George Bush's dazzling team of advisers, the only stink-bomb is the one Democratic holdover from the Clinton administration. It is absolutely contemptible that Bush will not rid us of this scourge.

It is safe to assume that it was not Mineta's stellar accomplishment of having sat on the House Public Works and Transportation Committee for 18 years that has led both Republican and Democratic presidents to seek his services so ardently. He is given plumb government jobs solely and exclusively because he is a minority.

But Secretary Mineta is burning with hatred for America. He has taken the occasion of the most devastating attack on U.S. soil to drone on about how his baseball bat was taken from him as a child headed to one of Franklin Roosevelt's Japanese internment camps.

As Mineta has endlessly recounted in interviews of late: "I remember on the 29th of May, 1942" – note that he remembers the day – "when we boarded the train in San Jose under armed guard, the military guard, I was in my Cub Scout uniform carrying a baseball, baseball glove and a baseball bat. And as I boarded the train, the MPs confiscated the bat on the basis it could be used as a lethal weapon."

Good God! A guard took Mineta's baseball bat as a child, and as a result he's subjecting all of America to the Bataan Death March! Someone please give him a baseball bat.

You are right about one thing: Her work is "loaded with hyperbole."
IMHO, that is a GOOD thing. :)

I have always thought it was funny how freepers fawn over Ann, but pretty much conclude that any "liberal" woman in the spotlight is part of the "knee-pad brigade". I guess they simply think an (R) automatically means "respectable" and a (D) means "down".

Man, you need to ask yourself why you're so fanatically anti-Coulter. So far your dementia has had you demeaning lawyers, law clerks, and women in general. You're making yourself look like an ass, in my opinion. So you don't like Ann Coulter... so what? Move on, buddy. Seems to me you're obsessing a bit too much.
