Somebodies ears are burning
Wow! I got this to keep me awake as I drove through the night. I chose a controversial book for that purpose. And it worked
I didn't think I would laugh so hard. She makes very good arguments for her positions with scalding little jabs that fit so well even liberals have to swallow a smile. Both Clintons had to put aloe vera on their ears.
This is ultra conservative in nature and a good read from that point of view. Political correctness is not one of her virtues - I found that refreshing.

Demagogic and Disappointing
Having just finished reading Demonic I was looking forward to Coulter's razor logic and irrefutable arguments in this volume. Although elements were there, Coulter was far less disciplined in her arguments in this book.
Many of the elements which Coulter attributed to "Liberals" were, in fact, truthful. However, making blanket statements about members and beliefs of a political party can be hazardous. Coulter ignored those hazards and plunged ahead with the same mindless demagoguery that Liberals so often use when attempting to denigrate members of the Tea Party and other Center Right and Right Wing groups. She selected in many cases the most extreme views and applied them without discrimination to all Liberals, a thing which is as unsustainable as applying the extremist philosophies of some right wing individuals to all of us on the right. It just doesn't cut it.
When discussing Darwinian theory Coulter is excellent, but, again, she tends to extremes which make much of what she is saying less palatable.
Demonic was a superbly written book which could well become a textbook of the right and righteous. This book was a diatribe written more in anger than logical thought. This style of writing and talking has driven me away from listening to many right wing commentators, Coulter among them, as they tend to make representations which do not stand up to logical argument. Demonic on the other hand is a wonderful source for argument and historic reference. That is what I seek, not blind fanaticism that convinces only members of the choir. Hopefully, Demonic will be the forerunner of the future style of Coulter's writing and talking. She is unquestionably brilliant and well versed. She needs to stick to facts and avoid emotionalism which drives a good deal of Godless.
