This from one of Nathan Tabor's columnists at the Conservative voice: Jeremy Meister.

Is Ann Coulter good for Conservatism? Someone who doesn't act ashamed of their ideology? Someone who stands up for what they believe in even when faced with hostile peer pressure? Absolutely. We need more people like her.

Just the kind of guys Duncan Hunter wants as part of his dead-on-arrival presidential campaign.

Update: Edited to be a kinder, gentler rant.

Flipper responds this question: Have you ever been fired from a job?

Rep. Robin Hayes (R-N.C.): “Technically, no, I don’t think so. I’ve had my job go away at a company called Leaseaplane. The concept was, we were going to be the Hertz of the airplane realm. I was the national sales manager at the time. Once there is nothing to sell there is no need for a sales manager.”

Don't worry Robin. We're going to fix that. In November 2008, you'll be able to answer "yes."

Soy Milk politics and rotten fruit from flipper's wagon

Hey! The soy bean wiz repub kid Nathan is very busy right now in politics. He is running the Duncan Hunter presidental internet campaign full blast. As you can see, Congressman Hunter is leading big time with his internet campaign against the other candiates.

On top of that he is running the Fred Smith tar and pave them over Gov campaign as the chief political adviser to Tar Baby Fred.

Uh! I guess Flipper fiqure out that you can't sell out of a empty wagon and be arrested for fraud.

I see Nathan boy has a high tech movie wiz kid who just finished college defending Annie.

Humm! Meister, Meister! Isn't that Nazi Brokenback Mountain name?

Missed opportunity.

This was really a good opportunity for Democrats to reach beyond Coulter and take a hit to conservative news. The DNC, DCCC, DSCC, and all the Presidential candidates should have blackballed any show and/or network that continued to use her.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

please, please, i beg you...

...don't muzzle ann coulter without considering this argument.

"...i feel that if a person can't communicate, the very least he can do is to shut up." --tom lehrer, january 1965

Organizations with "D"

at the start of their acronym don't seem all that willing to push back against the media.

The entire left side of the universe should shut Fox out. Period.

I agree

but with Harry Reid at the wheel, we're SOL.

He must have stopped at an Exxon, filled his tank and had his brains sucked out at the car wash. Someone, noticing the hollow thud when Harry crashed headlong into an opportunity to outfox faux, stuck a funnel in Harry's ear and filled it with jello.

When you're elected

to Congress, they generally do a medical transplant procedure which involves removing the prefrontal cortex and implanting a dumb bone in its place. You just can't help making bone-headed decisions. Seems like Harry has had that thing in there a little too long. He might want to get it checked out.

Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter reresents everything that is wrong, not only in American Politics, but in many aspects of our society today.

Ann lives in a world where any path to the quickest dollar is a justification for bad behavior in itself.

She not only thrives on hate and dishonesty, she also profits from it financially in a big way.

So who is rewarding her bad behavior? Who is ensuring she remains motivated to continue speading hate and discontent? Who rewards her uncivil and crude personal attacks upon anyone who believes in real independence and freedom?

We do. We feed the flame of bigotry and anti-social thinking by heralding every word she utters that we disagree with. In doing so, we become as guilty and uncivil as she is.

Do not ever expect her to see herself as anything other than wonderful and brave. She really believe she is and is re-enforced in her belief everyday when the money starts rolling in from a grateful public.

We have become increasingly uncivil in American politics and call it progressive or "honest". The more conservative movement calls it "true" and "patriotic".

I call it sad and unfortunate for us all.

Before you attack anybody, look into the mirror. We all are worthy of being attacked for one thing or another. We are all also able to aspire to civility, tolerance, forgivness, understanding, leadership and greatness.

2008 will be a year of true greatness for the Democratic party throughout America, but particuarly in North Carolina.

Lets all iqnore the Ann Coulters of the world and choose greatness.

I'll buy that.

I took her diatribe as a sign to be nice.

What the hell, might as well give it a try.

Conservatives on Ann Coulter

Joe Carter at Evangelical Outpost articulated my feelings on Ms. Coulter better than I ever could:

Perhaps if she had keen insight and a rapier wit, her cutting barbs might be endurable. But Coulter's "humor" slices like a shard from a Mountain Dew bottle found on a meth lab floor. Her remarks leave jagged gashs that grow infected and fester with pus, infecting all of us in the process.

Conservatism deserves better, deserves more civility and less Coulter. The fact that she is tolerated--much less admired--by conservatives is evidence that we have lost our philosophical moorings. If the Big Tent of conservatism really has room for the likes of Coulter, then it might just be time to close this circus down.

Read the rest here, if you'd like

Not bad.

But Coulter's "humor" slices like a shard from a Mountain Dew bottle found on a meth lab floor.

It is awkwardly written, but not bad.

My vote is for Conservatives

closing their "Circus"!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Progressive Discussions

THIS JUST IN - SCOOTED CONVICTED!!

Wonder how long it will take the bush admin to issue a pardon!

Too lazy

to start a new thread. Anway. For those who have been following the Nevada incident, where the local Democratic Party wants to put Fox News in charge of the primary debate, we have a winner. By that I mean, that Edwards is the first candidate to say he will not be attending. front page post by kos.

Max: Yeah, every German is a Nazi not that I'm accusing you of stereotyping.

What on earth makes you think I support Duncan Hunter for President? You obviously have missed a lot of my recent blogs. Hunter is for censorship, like the kind you're proposing. :D

As for Coulter, you obiously missed my follow up:

The Defense of Ann Coulter Part 2

On Friday March 2, after being introduced by Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, Ann Coulter walked to the microphone and uttered the phrase that would shake the political world.

"I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards."

The quote is an obvious joke and a comment on our times. It's even funnier considering how many outraged people now want to send Ann Coulter to rehab for daring to say it. Her comment also held political implications bringing up issues of the first amendment and freedom of speech as well as questioning the integrity of John Edwards himself.

Of course the usual gang of pot smoking, empty headed morons who wouldn't know a thought if it ran over them with a car were outraged. This is "hate speech." These are the same people who have no problem with university professors calling for the death of Americans simply because they are Americans. Good thing I'm here to bring sunshine onto their hypocritical stances once again. You see, there is another medium that has been using the word "faggot" for a long time now. Several years in fact.

Enter the show "South Park." Just a few years ago there was an episode called "Follow that Egg" (first aired Nov. 2nd, 2005) in which a jealous Mrs. Garrison had the following exchange with her gay ex lover Mr. Slave:

Mr. Slave: Mr. Garrison, there's something you should know. Al and I are getting married.
Mrs. Garrison: Married?
Big Gay Al: Yes.
Mrs. Garrison: You can't get married! You're faggots!

Later while trying to get a crowd worked in to a frenzy, Mrs. Garrison says the following:

Mrs. Garrison: Appeal to the governor? Oh, come on! Where's your balls? Fag drag!

From the episode "Mr. Garrison's fancy new vagina" (first aired March 9, 2005) come the following gems:

Mrs. Garrison: I'd rather be a woman who can't have periods than a fag.

From the show called "South Park is totally gay" (first aired Oct 22, 2003) come the following quotes:

Cartman: Yeah, don't be such a fag, dude!
and

Craig: You'll never be as metro-sexual as us! C'mon fags!

All these episodes came out years before Ann made her joke and the left was silent. No calls for boycotts. No demands for apologies. No crude comparisons to dictators and lunatics. Just utter silence. Why? There is no difference between what Ann did and what "South Park" does. Both make jokes of a political nature. You can't even argue that "South Park" only makes gay jokes at the expense of fictional characters. In the episode "Trapped in a Closet" (which first premiered Nov 16, 2005) several people including Tom Cruise and John Travolta literally become trapped in a closet and refuse to come out.

But if this isn't enough for the hypocrites on the left, I call their attention to "Rolling Stone Magazine" March 22, 2007 issue (http://www.rollingstone.com/news/coverstory/south_park_still_sick_still_wrong/page/1) that features an interview with "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. In it both Stone and Parker loudly tout their thoughts about lefties.

"...while soldiers and policemen protect me so I can say things like 'fudge-packing faggot' on my television show,..."

-Matt Stone

"...to go up to a tattooed, pierced vegan and say, 'Whatever, you tattooed faggot, you're a pierced faggot and whatever.' '' He looks very pleased with himself. "That's hardcore."

-Trey Parker

So admit it: you hate Ann Coulter and that's the only reason you're mad now. Just admit it, if nothing else to yourselves. If it's okay that "South Park" said it two years ago, then it should be okay to say it today. And if it's not okay to say it today, then where is your outrage over Parker and Stone?

Soy Park

That's it? All you've got in defense of Ann Coulter is a critique of cartoon characters. Where did you pick that up? Michael Medved? So Ann Coulter and CPAC are the winger equivalent of South Park? Excuse me but this is PolSci. If you want Media Studies try Town Hall.
