Coulter is the Sub Conscious Right

Here’s another reason why Patrick McIlheran is irrelevant, and why the Milwaukee Wisconsin Midwest United States Western Hemisphere Planet Earth JournalSentinel should be ashamed to pay him.

He says in a blog post titled “Go Take a Nap, Ms. Coulter,” that he too has a problem with her use of the word “faggot” recently during a convention of conservative activists … of course only after seeing that others had made negative comments about her.

He hastens to add that he has found her to be a good writer, “… is often hilarious and can express a political argument incisively.” She can also be mean at times, he’s winked, but mostly she’s brilliant he’s opined, too.

I suppose these accounts, taken from a Slate Magazine article, are brilliant examples of her wittiness.

"God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, 'Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It's yours.' "—Hannity & Colmes, June 20, 2001

"Women like Pamela Harriman and Patricia Duff are basically Anna Nicole Smith from the waist down. Let's just call it for what it is. They're whores."—, Nov. 16, 2000

"I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote."—Hannity & Colmes, Aug. 17, 1999

"My libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now but I think that's because they never appreciate the benefits of local fascism."—MSNBC, Feb. 8, 1997

McIlheran provides two examples of left-wing hilarity, as though that’s enough to make up for the army of talk radio, television, and blogger numskulls employed by the Rovian autocracy. His continued employment is another reason that, despite repeated calls for me to renew my subscription, I refuse to do so, relying instead on the free version on-line.

Though truth be told, I won’t be troubled if that version becomes pay-per-view. There’s are better places to receive movie time information (though I do like their baseball coverage ... Drew Olsen and Tom Haudricourt are top-notch).

Tim, I don't really appreciate the headline on this post.

That's all, really. I've been making my thoughts on Coulter pretty clear.

Other Side said...

That's fair. I tried to make the distinction in the piece that not all are employed by the Rovian autocracy (come on, that was pretty good). I did not succeed, obviously, and I apologize to you and those who have been consistently in opposition to this woman.

I still would claim that what many say publicly is not what they are thinking, unfortunately.

Other Side said...

And, I would add for many ... how come it took so long? Can't shake the feeling the outrage is a little orchestrated.

Lemmmeeeesee, heah, Gomer:

I don't see your post decrying the remarks calling for the assassination of Cheney, yet.

So that "speaks for you"?

Other Side said...

I didn't see anyone make any such comment, Captain Sparkle. Show me who said that and I'll decry it.

Anonymous said...

So some cherry picked anonymous comments on HuffPo (which were removed) are equivalent to Coulter's comments at the CPAC (which were enthusiastically applauded by the audience). I see.

Other Side said...

Ah, thanks Eddypo. Dad, you're so full of it sometimes. This woman is paid thousands to make excretory remarks ... the best you can do is snort about some punks? That's pathetic.

It went over my head. I'm not so bright. :)

Aaron said...

I think Dad is loosely referring to Bill Maher's comments.

To be fair, Maher said that the death of Dick Cheney would save lives.

It's still cruel and uncalled for. I think you could've applied the same reasoning to the Clinton years.

Other Side said...

It's a useless argument, really ... each side is going to see bogeys regardless of their existence or not.

It would be nice if the temperature were turned down a bit.

I just need a quick clarification...

I don't see your post decrying the remarks calling for the assassination of Cheney, yet.

He didn't ask why Other Side hadn't decried Bill Maher for saying mean things. So was he talking about Maher, anonymous comments, or something else? Who called for the assasination of Cheney? So we may all decry it.
