I found Ann Coulter at the Salvation Army; Not her silly, her book

I'm a big spender at our local Salvation Army thrift shop. Today, I spent $2.25 on 15 books, paper and hardbound, which explains my giddy mood. One of those books just happened to be "Slander-Liberal Lies About the American Right", written by Ann Coulter.

Yes, my curiosity got the better of me, my Republican friends forever urging me to read one of her books. When I saw it, I knew the hand of God was leading me to buy it-- that it was not a coincidence, but my destiny. I found it funny though that someone would give up this book and relegate it to a thrift shop. It's practically new! I'm ecstatic!

Well, I've begun reading the book and as a whole, when read in its proper context, it makes a strong argument in a quirky kinda way-- her premise that all political ills can be blamed on liberals. But taken out of context, wow... It's pretty funny. For example, Ms. Coulter made this corollary regarding liberals' perception of conservatives:

"It is important for liberals to demean the people they oppose to reinforce their sense of class superiority. Anyone can associate himself with the elite by adopting the left's snooty superiority and laughing at Republicans for being dumb hicks. Adopting the prejudices of the powerful interests is a way of saying you are with the "in" crowd. You are with the cool Hollywood types who hang out with Gwyneth Paltrow, Sean Penn, and David Geffen-not the working-class hillbillies who go to NASCAR races."

*blinks..... laughing uproariously* Thank you Ms. Coulter for making my day! I can't wait to finish this book!

Ms. Coulter is a daring writer, a writer with vision, a writer who omnisciently intuits these thougths and shares it with her cult-like readers.

I highly recommend this book. If you're having trouble finding it in your local bookstore, try the Salvation Army- you might just find a copy.

Please give us a book report when you manage to get through it (you know, without dying from laughter first). I don't think I could bring myself to even pick it up at a thrift shop lol. ;)

You should read Al Franken's last book, too...the first two chapters are on Coulter, and they are funny as hell.

The funny part is that she's more insulting to her target audience than she is to the 'evil liberals.' One does not call a person a hick or hillbilly unless one is a hick or hillbilly. Them's fightin' words!

This reminds me of an interview we almost posted between Ann and a Canadian interviewer. Ann was insistent that Canada sent troops to Vietnam. The Canadian interviewer kept saying, "No, no troops in Vietnam." It deteriorated into a "No, you're wrong," "No, YOU'RE wrong" type of thing. Ann ended it by saying something like "You're wrong, and I'll get back to you on it" (presumably with hard data). The interviewer notes that she never got back to him. Imagine that.
