interpretation of her hyperbolic comments and my reference to over sensitive liberals is the point of her book. You may not enjoy her goat getting but I hardly think it would qualify as 'nasty'. Al Gore said the 2000 election was basically a choice between good and evil. Am I supposed to think his intention was to insult me as evil (Harry Browne '96 and '00)? I'd be pretty thin skinned if I did. BTW - many of us had flags up on 9/10.

Ah, you know, whatever. I've got no time for talk like that, is all I wanted to say, and I've already spent 15 more minutes on the subject of Ann Coulter than I ever intended to. Ditto for whose flag is bigger, or whose wife enjoys dairy products & south German accents. God is Love, One for the Thumb in '81, etc.

Jack Tanner sounds like a player-hater. I can't think of a better expression to use.

I agree with Andrea's comment. I found her columns fun to read before 9/11, but not anymore. I think her intentionally divisive commentary came across differently when we took for granted the things that unite us as a country.

After those poor Canadian soldiers were killed in Afghanistan by Americans, teasing Canadians became a lot less funny for a while. Coulter has stopped being funny for the same reason.

I've always assumed that Ann Coulter is a performance artist, a kind of female Andy Kaufman. I can't believe anyone takes anything she says seriously.
