Coulter just cracks me up. It's kind of a guilty pleasure though 'cause she spews the venom with such zeal. Though she has her tongue firmly planted in her cheek the truth is there. If you lean leftward you may find her style objectionable. She is entertaining and that is how I approached this work. I wasn't disappointed.

Coulter has a knack for delivering memorable punches and articulating amuzing, bruising ironies. But while there is no end to the number of internal inconsistencies I hear in liberal rhetoric, I have to admit I'm a mostly embarrassed to have Ann as a mouthpiece for modern conservatives. The depth of her reflection seems shallow compared to many other conservative and libertarian pundits - I certainly wouldn't pull out her quotes in serious political conversations with friends. I'd be taken down for hypocrisy in twenty different ways. I wish she could combine her lively style with more authenticity. She seems to be less about factual reporting and careful, synthetic analysis and more about pushing emotional hot-buttons without even establishing a factual ground for doing so. If you really want to talk to a liberal, you need to be able to communicate that you are listening to them and understand them. If you talk to a liberal the way Coulter does, well - you'll have many fewer friends and you'll never really persuade anyone of anything. Persuasion is one of the most important arts of our time. It involves highly skilled communication. Coulter bludgeons this art. So yeah, I chuckle. But I'm deeply disturbed that she's reinforcing the very attitudes and perspectives that make Americans a dysfunctional citizenship with a dysfunctional government.
