Poor, poor, pitiful me

This really is far too easy. After all, Ann Coulter is her own worst argument. But if you want to go listen to Ann Coulter talk about how she is being "brow beaten" for her writing, head over to Hot Potato Mash and let your ear lobes lap up the passionate reason contained within her vital argument.

Amusing to say the least, and few choice excerpts from her belly-aching diatribe stood out.
"I comment on America in a lively and entertaining way."
Such as,
"Al Gore -- total fag."

"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.”
Lively and entertaining! Really, what kind of a humorless tool would you have to be to argue with that? Of course, there is much, much more in her trove of lively and entertaining "comment on America."
"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."

"[I]f I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”

"We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee."
A joke, she assured us all. The hilarity, of course, was not lost on those "in the know" about Ann's wacky brand of grade A humor. Those on whom the humor was lost were likely the ones being targeted for assassination.

Ann continued to bewail her brow beaten brow.
"These are legitimate topics and I'm a little sick of being brow beaten about why I chose this word or why I told that joke. And then people turn around and say, 'oh you're so mean, you're so mean.'"
No one gets her!

As amusing as this whingeing is, a truly rich vein of thought provoking assessment was struck by this marvelous passage:
"I've never seen people avoid ideas so much, in such an obvious way, and try to alert Americans not to read anything, not to listen to something someone says, not because of what he's saying but by trying to portray her as a Nazi."
Apart from the gender confusion Ann appears to suffer here, not surprising consider how often people speculate on her manliness, let's just have a look at some of Ann's great "ideas," as he/she calls them.
"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."

"We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed, too. Otherwise, they will turn out to be outright traitors."

"We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war."

"God says, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.'"
Yes, Ann does have some good and noteworthy ideas. They just happen not to belong to this century.

And wouldn't it be wonderful if she didn't, either?
