quote:
From "Hannity and Colmes," August 25, 2005:

COLMES:...And I want to ask you about something, Ann, that you wrote in your most recent column. You had a very funny line, actually, that it is hard to find a parking spot in New York City. There's no question about it. You've had a pretty good day if you can do that.

But then you said, "It's far preferable to fight them on the streets of Baghdad than in the streets of New York, where the residents would immediately surrender." Now, some New Yorkers...

HENICAN: Ooh...

COLMES: ... felt that you were calling them cowards by making that statement.

COULTER: No, I think I was calling them supporters of Cindy Sheehan.

COLMES: Is that what that is? You certainly don't feel that New Yorkers are cowards?

COULTER: I think they would immediately surrender.

COLMES: So you do?

COULTER: I don't -- I don't think -- I think I'd rather have them trying to invade Mississippi or Georgia, Alabama, you know, the states where I want Cindy Sheehan's bus tour to go.


Hmmmm, anybody want to hear what she says about Canada?

She has her opinions just as Rev. Jesse Jackson has his opinions.  Now, if Ms. Coulter was an elected representative of this country, then I'd go with a recall election ASAP.

I absolutely agree with Alicat.

I'm not going to say much here, since I know very well of the long list of controversial things Coulter has said in her books and as a frequent cable news personality, but I mean I just simply find that comment ignorant in the fact that after 9/11, New Yorkers did anything BUT retreat. There was a great moment of silence, many tears were wept and warm hugs we're given, but then, they stood up together, gathered on the streets, united with their neighbors once again. We were all together again. And, yes, in New York just like everywhere a vast majority believed we should take action against those responsible for the tragedy.

Also, I would like to see Cindy Sheehan tour the south, and believe she should. It would make her message feel more inclusive. I don't know why Coulter is strongly urging here to tour down there, if she has some intent or not should she do so, but believe it would be wise for Sheehan to tour all across the heartland.

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

But who would Jesus whack?

REB? probably most of us at one time or another..especially if you believe he willingly died for our sins so we could be 'saved' from some burning hell, and then we continue to beat each other up year after year, verbally and physically? SIGH, everyone has the right to speak their minds here in the USA, at least, that's what I always believed, though in reality? you have to be willing to get yourself slapped around if you go against the prevailing winds.
And of course, I know nothing of Jesus, so maybe this makes no sense.

Oh, Puh-Leez.....

I know too many people from NYC who- luckily for her- don't watch Fox News or really care too much about pulitics or what's happening outside of their little world.
I can understand that everyone is entitled to tasting their own toes occasionally... Lord knows I have done it myself more than once... However this chick is in the public eye, and should know how to better "explain" herself.

Somehow, I think that if  NYC resident is willing to go to blows over something as simple as the Yanks versus the BoSox, An Iraqi force would DEFINATELY bring out the worst in the most heavily armed city in the world.

Well Kacey I was actually referring to Pat Robertson's own filet of sole this week calling for the assassination of the President of Venezuala, Chavez
http://www.palmbeachpost.com/opinion/content/opinion/epaper/2005/08/25/a18  a_robertson_edit_0825.html

eventually all these characters assassinate themselves, Limbaugh, Jim Jones, O'Reilly, Robertson, Falwell, Oral Roberts, Jim Baker, Coulter -- just give them time and a megaphone...

I say.. just vote Kinky..

So, in fact, we just want them to keep talking and talking and talking . . .

I have this image of Coulter in a pink, bunny suit.

What Coulter said was troubling, but I do disagree that Coulter's comment here will "assassinate" herself like the Chavez thing is doing on Robertson.

Pat Robertson's comment was just beyond incredible. He said exactly what he meant, then he goes on saying he never said those things, THEN he apologizes for what he said. The ultimate roller-coaster aftermath.

It is just comments like Robertson's that are going to make some who feel moderately about the U.S and the insurgency more convinced that the U.S has an ulterior motive to keep assassinating leaders worldwide whose policies don't agree with ours and imposing our governments and values upon them without allowing the people to have a choice or to decide.

Coulter has said worse things than what she said this week before, but I don't believe her particular quote here matches the intensity that Robertson's comment has made.

Sincerely,
Noah Eaton

Is Rudy Julliani going to stand beside Annie now on a podium? Pataki?  How about the NYFD?  NYPD?  The Sanitation Department?  

Irrelevancy is worse than death for these guys Noah.  Sure, they can drag out the crocodile tears and beg forgiveness for having 'sinned against you'... and some people will forgive them, and still give them a market base -- but their ability to effect the process continues to diminish -- what defiles them is what comes out of their own mouths.

quote:

Poets, priests, and politicians
have words to thank for their positions
words that scream for your submission
And no one's jamming their transmission
'Cos when their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and rapes you

--Sting/The Police



you know what I have to say to them???

but you keep on talkin till your dyin day
livin lovin, she's just a woman

No one can really take Ann Coulter comments seriously,
no more than those of “Madonna” .  Her advantage is
that she looks a lot better than a short bald fat guy.
I think it was Evelyn Waugh who said that manners
were for the plain; the pretty can get away with anything.
