  1. AJ Griffin AJ Griffin says:

    I hovered between giving this a 1 star rating or a 5 star rating; the moment of truth came when i let my cursor hover over the fifth star, at which point a little box informed me that five stars means it was amazing.

    And I think we can all agree Ms. Coulter is somewhat amazing.

    I don't know why it is, but nothing stimulates my political tickle button like crazy right wing entertainers. Maybe it's some kind of ego thing, and I really just love Bill O'Reilley, Michael Savage, Coulter, etc. because they make me feel so gosh darn smart in comparison. Maybe I like horrifying my peers when I refuse to switch the station. I don't know.

    But isn't it fascinating to observe the folks at work? It's as if someone- either us or them- is missing a crucial part of the brain, and thus the two groups will never see anything in the same way. Ann Coulter calls John Edwards a faggot, and she's immediately praised by one sector and reviled by the other. Nobody has to spend a lot of time trying to decide whether he or she likes Ms. Coulter- you either do, or you don't. And you do so with a passion.

    The moral of the story? In a world where pretty much nothing is black and white, right or wrong, blah blah blah, Ann Coulter and her innate desire to bring back the word pinko give us something around which we can unite.

    And i hate to say it, but she's kind of hot- for a fag-hatin' Commie-slayin' warmongering wench.

    Every time I read a positive review of this, or any one of Coulter's books, I start to cry. You think I'm kidding, don't you? I'm sure you think I'm just being glib. Let me assure you, I'm not being glib at all. Every time someone says that this hypocritical and bigoted idiot's points are 'sound,' or anything of the sort, I quite literally feel my eyes well up with tears, and am overcome with the urge to go back in time and bring Socrates or Cicero to America so he can argue down every flawed, holey argument she made.

    I'm not going to degenerate into capslock, though it's tempting, and I'm not going to go so far as to say this book should be burned, along with the two others I've read (both of which I just don't have the courage or stamina to review), but honestly: if you're going to go so far over to one side of any spectrum that an extremist who barely believes half the merde she spouts seems reasonable to you, even to the point that this proof of the existence of Socratic Irony seems intelligent, well-researched, or beautifully thought out, then...

    Do you know, I have no end to that statement. It floors me. It's like the people who are so liberal they become vegans and only clothe themselves in hemp - except a lot more people read her books than makes that analogy feasible.

    I'm just going to finish up this review (which is quickly becoming incoherent, I know) by saying that this book would make a logician cry; and not only that, but become so despondent at the state of humanity that he had no choice but to fling himself off something very high and onto something very hard. Please, for God's sake, this woman is nothing but a manipulator, and a terrible writer on top of that. Half the 'facts' in this must have been gotten off of Rush Limbaugh alone, because they have no basis in reality - or have been skewed to the point that, though real, their actual meaning has no basis in the meaning she assigns to them.

  3. Ken Ken says:

    Her nonsensical rantings are surprisingly easy to read, which probably speaks to the literacy of her audience.

    Lies, contempt, nastiness, and a complete disregard for anything resembling humanity. Even Joe McCarthy would have been uncomfortable around this creature.

  4. Nandakishore Varma Nandakishore Varma says:

    The essence of being a liberal:

    “The absolute conviction that there is one set of rules for you, and another, completely different set of rules for everyone else.”

    Well, well. I thought that this was the essence of being Ann Coulter.

  5. Erick Erick says:

    Okay, this book is seriously funny! If you're a conservative, you'll laugh until you can't catch your breath! If you're a liberal, you'll probably set this book on fire and send hate mail to the author! Don't take this book too seriously. Many good points are made and she really nails the liberal thought process, which can be helpful in a heated debate but everything shoud be taken in moderation and moderation isn't one of her strong points! Just enjoy the ride and take some notes! :)

  6. Tamra Tamra says:

    I saw this book on a library shelf and brought it home. I knew nothing about Ann Coulter, and I thought the book was something of a joke. You know, Ha, ha, liberals are the worst people in the world. Now, seriously, getting down to business: let's discuss, in an academic and productive way, what makes a liberal tick. But no. It wasn't a joke. There was nothing productive about the book. She only used insults to appeal to the hatred inside people. I know someone else who used this tactic well.

    Ann Coulter should make Conservatives ashamed to claim her.

    I think Ann Coulter might be insane. If she's not, she's simply mean and spiteful and angry and ... wow. I just can't put into words the amount of pity I feel for a person as one-sided and mean as Ann Coulter. Get a therapist! Or is that too hippy liberal for you?

  7. Devin Wallace Devin Wallace says:

    Ann Coulter truly outdoes herself in this ridiculous screed against a spectre of an opponent. She fails to grasp even the most basic tenets of either conservatism or liberalism (even dating back to inception within 17th century Europe) and instead replaces true definitions with her own, which of course, are outlandish and nothing more than pure propaganda. In her eyes, a liberal is someone who hates America, hates God, and hates applie pie. If Ann Coulter was ready to have a proper debate without acting like a young child, as she often acts in debates and in her writing, it would be possible to read her books. Unfortunetely, that is not the case. Her continual use of hyperbole to the extent of incitement of felonies is particularly frightening. One must ask oneself if this type of dialogue is for the benefit of the nation, or simply Ms. Coulter's wallet.

  8. David Simonetti David Simonetti says:

    The woman the left loves to hate gives them plenty of material in this book. Ann Coulter is provacative, funny and on point with respect to many issues. But because she can sometimes express her point of view in such biting tones, she takes a way from some of her substantive arguments. But instead of throwing pies at her or heckling her speeches, the left would be well advised to take her point of view and consider. She makes some very interesting and provocative points, but I guess the left doesn't really care to enforce the First Amendment unless it applies to their point of view.

  9. Traveller Traveller says:

    In this book Ann Coulter mouths off against feminists, liberals, and whoever else depending on what she had for breakfast.

  10. Stephanie Bransom Stephanie Bransom says:

    Most people won't agree with everything Ann Coulter has to say. In fact, most people would probably like to set her on fire. I can't say I agree. I enjoy Ann's writing, and politics included, I enjoy her commentary. She's controversial, she says mean things. I like her.

    There is one article in here that wasn't printed in a women's journal, that I wish readers could disconnect from her political philosophy. The base of the argument was like attracts like, and if you think something is socially acceptable, you will flock toward others that feel the same. Ann was on a radio talk show and a caller was trying to say marital cheating happens everywhere, because she had been cheated on, and it's a common thing. Ann argues it is only common around cheaters, and that doesn't make it okay.
