I've read Ann Coulter's How To Talk To A Liberal (If You Really Have To) a few months ago. It was okay. She makes a few witty comments, but overall, she seems to subscribe to the school of "even bad publicity is still publicity." She has made calculated, ultra-controversial statements will keep her in the public eye and her books selling, including her statements regarding the protesting 9/11 widows against the Iraq War as opportunistic. She know just how to push the buttons of the right (and the left, for that matter) to get what she wants — her books sold.
“These self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9-11 was an attack on our nation and acted like as if the terrorist attack only happened to them. They believe the entire country was required to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently, denouncing Bush was part of the closure process.”
“These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by griefparrazies. I have never seen people enjoying their husband’s death so much.”
Whatever. The widows put themselves in the public eye and in doing so agree to be criticized. Coulter has nice hair and looks passively decent in black leather or a little black dress, and tends to use that to maximum effect on her book's covers. She's obviously trying to promote a book and cash in, and that kind of statement is the "bait" to get people to buy.
It's sad that her extreme positions somehow reflect enough of the population that her remarks get defended, but if she is speaking for some percentage of the right, so be it. Too bad they are so wrapped up in their anti-liberal mentality that they don't realize they are getting used by her and her publisher. Moreover, why does the right has this bottle-blondie while the best the left can do is Hilary and Michael Moore? There must be a few half-decent looking liberals that haven't blown Clinton?
Here's Kathy Griffin (almost unrecognizable after plastic surgery) roasting her ass:
For the record, here's Coulter explaining herself on the Today Show (sorry it's poor quality):
