    has to realize that she is a coyote date, in their eyes, good for only a short time, and for only one thing. No, they won't still love her in the morning.

    Before long, Pamela Geller will be history. I can't wait.

    Thanks for making this stand.

      look at Coulter and all that love her.
      Personally, I think she is pulling the biggest scam ever.
      Could it be that she really is a man, and doesn't even believe in the things she says? Does it just to be famous and make money?
      That would be quite funny.

        She isn't quoted all the time (in this venue, or elsewhere) like she used to be. I'm betting her books don't sell like hotcakes anymore, and she isn't commanding the speaker's fees she used to.

        In asking if "she really is a man," be careful you don't demean transgendered people.

          things...

          pam geller may have a career with legs too.  it remains to be seen how far she can ride this islamofascism thing.  probably pretty far at the rate were droning out new "terrorists" and, as long as islamofascism can be used to scare the plebes, faux news will provide geller a platform.

          just like coulter.

          although, ann is not a one trick pony like geller and can be offensive on virtually any important topic of the day.

          maybe when we give up on the middle east, islamofascism will begin to lose steam and faux news will no longer employ gellers.  don't count her out.  :(

          them at all. I am gay, so I would have no problem with her if she were a man. I just think it would be funny. Just imagine what it would do to all those that think she is great.

            the extent that she's a sex object to her fans. She wants her mind and her ideas to be valued. They aren't. Not really.  So aging has gotta be really tough for this reason.

        If your insinuation is that she is a transwoman, she still wouldn't be a man.  Transwomen are women.  To think otherwise is bigoted.

        And if she were a transwoman, she would have had to have transitioned before she was in grade school (we have had someone who went to school with her post a yearbook picture of her), which is highly unlikely, given her age...and everybody who knows her well would have had to have chosen to forgo all the money they could make by supplying proof to the National Enquirer, The Sun, or the like.

        So rather than insult us transwomen, can we just knock off the crap?

          reminds me of Lady Gaga's detractors who like to use the characterization as some kind of insult.
