If any of you heard a distant and dull thudding noise a few days ago, it was the sound of my jaw hitting the floor as I caught up with Ann Coulter's latest words of wisdom. (Just in case you can't work out what I'm referring to, I draw your attention to `On Women.')
I don't know why Ann Coulter should annoy me so much. I mean, for one thing, she's an American commenting on American politics and I'm a Brit living in Britain, so really she has about as much relevance to me as a political commentator in New Zealand. But I'm starting to become morbidly fascinated by her. Every time I type her name into Google News I find she's said something else completely stupid. And people respect her views. What in the name of humanity is wrong with her and with America that she can say stuff like this and get away with it?
I know, free speech and all that - and you all know I'm in favour of that. But free speech has a Darwinian component. If someone talks bollocks for long enough people stop listening and you never hear from them again. That doesn't seem to work for Ann Coulter; she just keeps talking bollocks and people just keep on listening.

She is the only person I've encountered whose breasts talk bollocks.

Ann Coulter is one of the few people who can make me ashamed of my gender. She reminds me of some bitter, middle-aged secretaries I once knew, who encouraged the Reserve officers on summer duty to harass the interns, because they were young and pretty and therefore--in the mind of these mean-spirited sows--deserved it.
On the other hand, such women do serve as living examples of the fact that women are no more perfect than the men they pretend to despise. As a former Civics teacher used to tell us, the good presidents are the most dangerous to the health of our democracy. They lull us into complacency for the stinkers. No chance of anyone ever mistaking AC for anything good.
Hugs and headshakes,
Jean Marie

I know her comments `On Women' haven't exactly been well received, but I do wonder what the reaction would have been if a bloke had said that.
My personal opinion is that deranged offensive drivel is asexual - it's deranged offensive drivel whether a man says it or a woman or a llama.
Big Hugs.
