  •  Naah... (14+ / 0-)

    She graduated cum laude from Cornell and has a JD from Michigan.  

    She's smart.. she knows exactly what she's doing.  

    Stupid con artists usually aren't very good and Coulter has made an entire career of keeping herself relevant by saying repulsive shit that people simply can not help but talk about.

    This comment just sold a few hundred copies of her next book.  If McCain rises to the bait that number will go up into the 10,000's.

      I have to say there were a lot of stupid people there then :-)

      However, without the integrity.

      Seriously, Coulter has added Nothing to the national discourse on any topic. Even a far-right blowhard like George Will has written eloquently and brilliantly on baseball, for instance; when has Coulter had that kind of positive, constructive impact?

      Coulter's stock in trade are insult, inneudo, and outright lies. The fact checkers literally cannot count the number of inaccuraces and falsehoods in her books. Add to that her personal "style," described most accurately by Kathy Griffin, who said Coulter dresses like she's on a perpetual walk of shame,  and her willingness to attack anyone and anything for publicity, and you have perhaps the most reprehensible human being in the public eye today. Hell, even Michele Bachmann took foster children in.

      Now I know it's not right, and potentially sexist, to bring up a woman's looks, but Coulter uses her "attractiveness" as part of her allure (no, I don't get it, but I'm gay). If it weren't for the bleach in her hair, the silicon in her chest and the fat frat boys using her book jacket photos as masturbatory material, her book sales would be half as much and she'd never appear on television.

      May her exterior soon catch up to the extreme ugliness of her character and her soul, so we can stop looking at or hearing from her.

        Kindness is what makes women attractive, at least to this straight man. There's nothing kind about Coulter inside, and there's nothing kind or appealing about her appearance either, just a sort of angular, pinched WASPy look right out of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible".  

        Kindness... intelligence and humor.  This is what made Tina Fey attractive and Sarah Palin not, even when they dressed and looked almost exactly alike, one imitating the other.

      People have to impress me on their own.

      I must say though that I was shooting from the hip. I really should read some of her stuff.

    •  Well then she should be smart enough to know (0+ / 0-)

      that if she does manage to help incite a civil war in this country then she would be a legitimate military target and could easily end up on the wrong end of a hellfire missile.
