Ann Coulter fucks with Matt Lauer

This makes my heart sing

''While considerable attention focuses on Ann Coulter's more superficial charms, from a conservative perspective Ann's real beauty is her absolute refusal to buy into liberal logic, no matter how pervasive.''
That's Mark Finkelstein's (he specializes in Today Show watching for NewsBusters)  crisp  description of Ann Coulter's value to anybody with a low tolerance for BS - of any kind.  Sample her appearance with Matt Lauer this morning, ostensibly to push her new book  ''The first example came in the the context of President Bush's current push for a constitutional amendment that would prohibit gay marriage.''  

"David Gregory said if you ask people what they care about they say Iraq and gas prices. Gay marriages are way down on the list, but that's what the president is talking about and what the Senate is taking up. Why?"

Coulter would have none of it:

"I don't know what people are talking about or how David Gregory knows that. But I do know that gay marriage amendments have been put on the ballots in about 20 states now and passed by far larger numbers than Bush won the election by."

Matt then hit Ann with a classic exemplar of perceived liberal truth - the musings of a WaPo columnist. Lauer:

"Here's how E.J. Dionne puts it in the Washington Post: 'The Republican party thinks its base of social conservatives is a nest of dummies who have no memories and respond like bulls whenever red flags are waved in their faces.' Do you agree with that?

Coulter: "That the base are dummies or that Bush thinks that?"

Lauer: "That he can wave a red flag and they will run to the polls to respond to him?"

Coulter: "They don't need to respond to him. He's not running again."

Lauer: "They want the voters to turnout in the mid-term elections. They don't want to lose control of the congress."

Coulter: "Maybe they want to do what the voters want. Whatever you can say about whether or not Bush has a mandate, the mandate against gay marriage is pretty strong. It passed by like 85 percent in Mississippi. Even in Oregon, and that was the state that the groups supporting gay marriage fixated on and outspent their opponents by like 40:1, it passed even there. There is a mandate against gay marriage."

Lauer: "Do you think George Bush in his heart really cares strongly about that issue?"

Coulter: "I don't know what anybody cares in his heart."

Just beautiful.  If you've ever tried to ''discuss'' politics with a liberal - and I know you have -  they will immediately attempt to frame the discussion, usually with a false premise.  Ann's talent (and one I think that a child possesses instinctively) is to get rid of all the clutter.  So simple, in theory.  And it works.

so true...
Ms. Coulter makes another outstanding appearance.

it is no surprise the libs don't have her on the shows more often...

funny to see liberal democrats view the world, via their own beliefs. they often project what they do onto others. as if opposing Gay Marriage is merely a sham, to boost voting bases?

One of the comments I've made many times is that kids have a great "bullshit meter". That is why every kid that graduates from High School does not end up a liberal. They see through their teacher's brainwashing liberal bullshit and ignore it.

For some people, their "bullshit meter" burns out, or their "bullshit filter" gets clogged. That's how they become liberals - they fall for other people's bullshit.

Puh-lease tell me that is NOT a PS! And then tell me where to find more of her like that! Conservative and hot...what a great combination in a woman.

If she had a gun in her hand I'd have to take a little break...

Oh, and she toasted that little MSM twit. Go Ann!

She does cut through the bullshit, eh? It's almost as if Ayn Rand was reincarnated and found religion, two concepts that must have the ornery old bitch spinning in her grave.

Oh come on, Chuck! You can't tell that that is a PhotoShopped picture? Ann's legs are much better looking than that.
I always bring Ann up with liberals. It's fun to watch them splutter and call her names. I've yet to hear one refute anything she has said. Mark Finkelstein is right. Her real beauty is the way she verbally slices and dices liberals. She can also make mountains of julian fries in seconds.

If it's for real, she is a beauty!
