  •  Why now? (3.66)
    It seems that just a couple of weeks ago, I learned on Kos that most people in the U.S. have never even heard of her.  Why would Time care to raise her profile now?  To harm or help her?
    •  that was a Time poll BTW (3.75)
      only 11% had a favorable view of her.
      79% had not heard of her

      i'm not sure what Time's motivations are, but in light of all their recent religious covers, I'd say it has to do with pandering to the brain-dead crowd.

      •  "brain-dead crowd" (none)
        So...AC's really a zombie?  

        Heh.  I don't doubt that.  

        *Note:  I'm pretty sure I'm thinking of this since I just watched Dawn of the Dead.

          best zombie movie ever.  romero's fourth dead movie is due out later this year.  can't wait.

          oops, supposed to be making fun of coulter.  yes, i could believe she eats human flesh...

        •  Not Dawn of the Dead (none)
          Dawn of the Dead had "fast" zombies.

          Ann would definately be of the "slow" variety.

          •  no no no! (none)
            the remake had fast zombies.  the far-superior original featured your classic shambling shuffling undead.

            i agree though: fast zombies and ann coulter are lame.

            •  Heh. (none)
              Thanks for pointing that out for the "youngins" on the board.

              The 2004 DOTD is the remake of the 1979 George Romero CLASSIC; which, btw, was part two of what could be called a "trilogy" of "Dead".  

              Now, I didn't mind the newer, faster zombies of the 2004 version.  But I have to admit, the 1979 versions were pretty awesome and have stood up to the test of time:  they were more creepy.  In their own, slumbering, "creeping death" sorta way.

              And the gore in the 1979 version is still...well, gory.  

              Both versions are terrific.

      •  Does she write under a Time-Warner Publisher? (4.00)
        It's shameless how Time pimps its own movies in its film section. Maybe Ann has a book coming out Time's publications division wants to whore? Got to love the corporate MSN when they're "breaking" the Big Story.

        The Book of Revelations is NOT a foreign policy manual.

    •  They did us a favor (4.00)
      They labeled her "Ms. Right."  Good.  Let people see the face of the right-wing party as Ann Coulter's.  Let all of her hate-filled looney rhetoric speak for the entire Republican party.

      We should encourage this.

      Then let's see how many moderates and Independents they get in 2006.

      •  I don't know (4.00)
        I'd like to think you're right about this, but I'm old enough to remember when people said the exact same thing about a new radio personality named Rush Limbaugh.

        People just assumed his hateful speech would eventually turn people off.  

        They're still waiting for "eventually" to happen.

        •  Liberals didn't speak out enough (none)
          That's why Rush lasted so long.  We need to link Ann the Man, Rush, and the other hysterical nutcases to the GOP.  

          No more being nice.  We need to portray the GOP as the party of right-wing fascism, racism, extremism, and hatred.

          •  I agree (none)
            People thought he'd fade away on his own.  Kinda reminds me of how Democrats sit back and wait for Republicans to implode.

            If there's one lesson we can learn from Rush it's that we should have raised hell about him when he first started to get national attention.  Too late to turn back the clock, but repeating the same mistake again is suicide.

          •  it's not that liberals didn't speak out loud enoug (none)
            ...the problem is that there are Americans who see the world in this way.

            The talking heads didn't create an audience, they filled a demand for the segment of the society that is full of hate for others not like them.  so what you get rid of limbaugh or coulter?  it doesn't get rid of the deep down need some people in this country have for this shit.  these guys wouldn't blossom if the wasn't any manure feeding these quacks.
