  •  Mass exposure of Coulter will only help us (4.00)
    I agree most strongly with Truffle's comment upthread that "conservatism" (right-wing radicalism, actually) is in a state of decline.

    Exhibit A:  Ann Coulter is one of the "thinkers" of the right wing.  Think about that.  The woman is a raving lunatic.  

    Putting her on the cover of "Time" is going to be so helpful to our cause because millions of people will now have this equation in their heads:

    Tom DeLay + Ann Coulter = GOP

    Yes, it's more complicated than that, of course, but to many people who don't pay close attention to politics, the perception that they gain is that two thoroughly repugnant characters are the public face of the GOP.

    Time magazine doesn't realise it (or maybe they do), but they just scred a whole mess of points for us in our long twilight struggle.

    (Parenthetically, I should note that Europeans who learn that Ann Coulter is taken seriously as a pundit and given wide exposure in the United States are simply astonished...their feeling is that a large segment of the American populace, as well as jut about all of their elected officials, have gone stark raving mad.)

    There are three kinds of people: Those who see; those who see when they are shown; those who do not see.

    •  I agree (none)
      She's so mean and hateful, people just finding out about her can't help but be put off. Seeing this harpy lauded as a great intellectual is bound to make them go, "Whaaaa?!"
