Should we just ignore Man Coulter
That's what Jersey Guy over at Alternate Brain suggests. Man Coulter wants attention? Fine. Let's all ignore her, and she goes away.
But I gotta disagree. Man Coulter don't give a shit if those of us in the reality-based community ignore him or not. On the edge of every lynch mob, you got some smirking evil ratbastard egging it on, until the lynch mob breaks through the doors of wherever, grab whoever their target is, and tears the poor victim of the lynch mob to pieces. And the evil ratbastard doesn't actually get any blood on his own hands, he just stands by and smirks as other people do evil for him. Evil Accomplished. Man Coulter is one of those evil ratbastards.
Now, if nobody actually listened to Man Coulter, if Man Coulter was just wandering in circles in the public square muttering "invade their countries, kill their leaders, convert them to Christianity" and everybody avoided him, that'd be one thing. But Man Coulter is widely loved in the moran community where he stands there in the public square shouting "Kill the raghead! Kill the liberal! Rape the Democrat!" and the morans standing around cheer and say shit like "Fuck yeah!" and "USA! USA! USA!" and somebody has to stand up to the ratbastard and say "Excuse me, but that's fuckin' NUTS".
The only way to stop a lynch mob - the ONLY way - is for men of good will to gather around and remind people that the evil ratbastard who's egging them on is, well, a fucking evil ratbastard. Simply ignoring the evil ratbastard won't stop the lynch mob. We've tried that before. It don't work. But when directly challenged, evil ratbastards will often slink away and if you do it enough, the evil ratbastard ends up bein' that wino in the public square muttering "invade their countries, kill their leaders, convert them to Christianity" while even morans avoid the reeking stench of sour wine and evil.
So no sir, I ain't takin' your advice to ignore Man Coulter. Evil ratbastards like him don't go away just because you ignore them. They just gather together a lynch mob of morans that then sweeps up otherwise normal citizens into its crusade to kill, kill, kill, kill, kill. Crap, isn't Dear Leader's holy war in Iraq proof enough of that?!
Or as 18th century philosopher Edmund Burke probably didn't say, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". That appears to be the advice here, and it is not advice that in my opinion is wise or warranted.

What stuns me is that ANYONE is stunned at anything that comes out of that twit's mouth these days. She's a fame whore and will do anything to stay in the news. That's it. No more, no less.

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. It's like this...
Take President Bush, for example. I have reached a point where, if I see and/or listen to him for more than five minutes, I actually start feeling ill. He is like a disease to me now. That's why I haven't been writing as many posts concerning him as I did a year or two ago. He makes me sick.
But Coulter has grown so poisonous over the years, she now makes Bush sound almost sane. Not quite, but close. I'm with Jersey Guy: Ignore her. She's unhealthy on more levels than I can imagine. (By the way: how's your blood pressure? Mine's normal now, thanks to my doctor's advice.)
Her hero is Joseph McCarthy -- she all but says so explicitly in her book "Treason." Well, she's headed down the same path her hero went down, and it looks like sooner or later, she's going to come face to face with her own Joseph Welch. And that'll be the end of the road for her. Maybe I'll blog about her then. In the meantime, no. No more.
And if that doesn't happen, fine. Hey, wingnuts: If you really, really want to shoot my liberal ass to pieces, then just do it and get it overwith. Otherwise, just go the fuck away from me. I don't like you, I don't need you, and I don't give a goddamn what comes out of your miserable cakeholes anymore. The hell with all of you.
I, am, done.

i stopped listening to her a long time ago -- it's like that cartoon where the cat is listening to his human talk and the cartoon bubble only says, 'blah, blah blah'
