Breaking News: Ann Coulter's An Idiot
"These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grieferazzis. I have never seen people enjoying their husband's deaths so much"

from her new book
"Godless: The Church of Liberalism"
I have a confession to make: I read Ann Coulter's book, "Treason". That's one of my little personality quirks. I actually read and listen to the far-right and their "little right lies". I try to devote at least an hour a day to some of the more celebrated neanderthals of Hate Radio. It's one of my guilty pleasures. By doing so, I think I'm able to comment intelligently on them (if such a thing is even possible).
A very Republican friend of mine had the book and I asked him if I could borrow it. I'll have to admit, it's a very easy read - but that's not necessarily a compliment. Let us be frank here: Anything written by Ann Coulter isn't going to be riddled with complexities, if you know what I mean. I read the book in a few hours and had it back to him by break of twilight.
Here's my challenge: Don't go out and waste your hard earned money on it - Trust me, you'll never regret not having done so. But if you happen to be at your local library and they have it on their shelves, have a look at it. Don't take it home - particularly if you have young children about the house. Just take it off of the shelf, go to a nice, quiet corner and sit down with it for an hour or so.
Here's a little game you can play with "Treason" (or anything else she ever wrote, I imagine). Pick out a page at random - any page at all - and I'll wager you any amount you'd like that you won't be able to find a single page that does not contain at least one error of fact (or "lie", if you want to get technical). Some pages are, quite literally, drenched in lies! But at a bare minimum you'll be able to spot one total distortion on every page in the book. It's a neat game and loads of fun to play!
On second thought, if you should come across a copy of it in a thrift shop or at a garage sale somewhere, then by all means buy it. In fact, I insist on it. That way, you'll be able to spare some poor, half-witted bastard the embarrassment of purchasing it and taking the damned thing seriously. You'll really be doing your community a great service. Ann won't be able to receive an additional royalty so there's no moral dilemma involved. And consider this juicy possibility: When you get bored with the book, you'll have the extra added satisfaction of burning it! What could be more fun than that???
Now let me explain to you how Ann operates and her genius for taking things out of context. If, when she wakes up this morning, she does a google search of her name and happens to come across the previous paragraph, she'll go on Hannity and Colmes tonight and she'll scream, "The liberals advocate book burning! Tom Degan even urged people to buy my books just so they can burn them! You see, Sean? They're as bad as the Nazis!!!
Now do you understand? That's how Ann Coulter lies, manipulates and distorts the truth. When she was out on the road promoting "Treason", she actually went on the Hardball program with Chris Matthews and implied that Harry S Truman, of all people, was guilty of treason. I mean, HARRY FREAKING TRUMAN! Not only is the woman dumber than dog shit, she's nuts!
On that particular appearance, Matthews went over her book, point by ridiculous point, exposing the falsehoods and distortions within, much to her obvious discomfort. "The truth doesn't mean a thing to you, Ann", he said. She has not been on Hardball since. Gee, I wonder why?
FOR THE RECORD: A few nights after this post was published, Ann Coulter did, in fact, appear on Hardball.

Disgusting, liberal propaganda. Enjoy!
