crazy much? October 4, 2007

Ann Coulter, in a New York Observer interview, being her usual offensive self:

If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president. It’s kind of a pipe dream, it’s a personal fantasy of mine, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.

It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it’s the party of women and ‘We’ll pay for health care and tuition and day care — and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?’

and yet, her book is #5 on Amazon as of this writing.  i’m not sure what’s more frightening – that she spouts such irrationality and prejudice to sell books, or that people out there actually agree with her.

  1. Sandman Says:

    I’d like to recommend two books for you. The first is “Conservatives Without Conscience” by John Dean. In it he dissects the origins, goals and objectives of the modern neocon movement. The second is “The End of America” by Virginia Wolf. She outlines the ten steps dictators always take before they destroy a free society.

    They’ll help you understand why Ann Coulter’s brand of right-wing hatemongering, lies and doublethink appeal to so many people.

    Bottom line is, people don’t want to think for themselves, and will often gravitate towards those whose views most closely resemble their own. Especially if they’ve been told that 1) their views have been disregarded and marginalized by the “others” and 2) that their views truly represent the mainstream of current culture.

    Every dictatorship has its supporters, from the subtle (Tony Snow) to the obvious (Rush Limbaugh) to the psychotic (Ann Coulter and G. Gordon Liddy).

    You are right to be afraid. Our freedoms are being eroded as we speak and these people, and many like them, are telling us that it’s either not really happening, or if it is, it’s for our own good.

    I speak as a man who never intends to vote Republican as long as I live – at least, so long as I still have a choice about it.

    I’ve learned my lesson.
