Coulter 7/10/09

Forgetting Sarah Palin

My take on Ann Coulter's latest. Her column was published on

Summary: If the Left is so against her, then why do they keep talking her up?

She's like the ex-girlfriend they're SO over, never want to see again, have already forgotten about -- really, it's O-ver -- but they just can't stop talking about her.

My Views: I think that the left perceives SP as weak and think they can exploit her as much as possible. Let's not forget animus. She's attractive and articulate.

The same as that girl who was Miss California. Why did she excite such animus? She wasn't running for anything. Yet the denunciations were out of all proportions to the incident.

This explanation for the anti-SP behavior may seem to be improbable at first brush but coupled with the behavior towards other beautiful, attractive, Conservative women seems to establish a pattern.

Anybody who is as hated as Ann Coulter is must be doing something right. She is very right-wing but every left-wing blogger would love to write like her. I hate rants; opinion pieces must argue from the facts. Pay attention to how she uses facts and draws politically incorrect connections among them. People would do well to think and not just be outraged.

Here's her Wiki bio. Her latest book is at the right.
