N&R on Ann Coulter

While I was mowing the lawn this morning, I was thinking about the editorial cartoon the Greensboro News & Record chose to run on its editorial page yesterday lampooning conservative columnist Ann Coulter and her opinion on Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts. I don't mind anyone, including the left-wing cartoonist Danziger, poking fun at Coulter—she dishes it out and should expect flack in return—but the News & Record shouldn't . . . be a party to such criticism out of context. If they are going to run the cartoon, they ought to be running her column. My 82-year-old dad, who follows politics closely but doesn't have Internet access and therefore can't surf over to AnnCoulter.com, would have no idea why the N&R was portraying her this way. (For the record, although I thought Ann had some good points in her column this week, I don't fully agree with her in her opposition to Judge Roberts.)

Ann Coulter does "take it" as well as dishing it out. I admire her for her outspokenness and refusal to kowtow to Political Correctness. I may not agree with everything she says (writes), but she never shies away from the verbal battle.

Danziger, on the other hand, is an embarrassment to the state of Vermont(aka - PC Central). In the past he has shown his "tolerance" and racial sensitivity by portraying Condalezza Rice as an old fashioned "Mammy". It is disgusting and degrading to both blacks and women to see this kind of editorial cartoon. But that is the liberal left for you. They have no problem moralizing to the rest of us, while they spew the most hateful rhetoric imaginable. I point to Howard Dean and Pat Leahy (two more grand examples of the state of Tolerance (Oops! Vermont!).

I'll take Ann Coulter and her ilk ANY day. They are honest, up front and (usually) correct - and not in the Political sense.

Can you say "Ann Coulter" and "Christian" in the same sentence without lightning striking?

Anonymous,

Indeed! Christian-Ann Coulter. No problem. What is so wrong with speaking the truth- because it hurts?

The liberals she rails against are extremely shrill and self-righteous. Ann simply demonstrates how shrill and wrong they really are and in a humourous way.

Danzinger, on the other hand, is very dark, borderline evil and usually just wrong. I have no problem with him or anyone else poking fun at the president or my side but it is so dark that I can't even look at them anymore.

Just out of curiousity, are there any liberals you can think of that would draw lightening mentioning their name in the same breathe with Christianity?

Once again, hypocrisy reigns in the comments here.

Roch,

I agree, implying that Ann Coulter is the antithesis of Christianity is absurd.
