1. I want to throw Ann Coulter in jail for treason
President Kerry should order a grueling IRS audit of Ann Coulter as soon as he gets into the Oval Office.

2. I want to throw Ann Coulter..............
into the lion cage at the National Zoo. It would be the only time in her entire life that she'd serve a useful purpose. I know there's not much meat on the bitch, and it would undoubtedly be very bitter tasting, but meat is meat.

11. SHe's a bitter exhibitionist who probably just needs a

Any volunteers? ;)

12. A boy friend or a girl friend?
Someone said it was a transvestite a while back, but I can't figure out what sex it was and what it is now trying to be.

Also, I thought the Republicans outlawed interspecies dating.

They've done nothing to you, have they?

4. Give that monster another pound of flesh off Max
Obviously Max Cleland hasn't given enough for his country yet.

As to the current war, I read last year that our youngsters who die in things like Humvee rollovers or helicopter crashes aren't counted as "combat deaths," because, y'know, it wasn't with guns blazing. Um, the way I see it is this: they wouldn't be dead if they weren't there, and they are just as dead as if they had gone Rambo-style.

"Death has a tendency to encourage a depressing view of war."
~Donald Rumsfeld

"But why should we hear about body bags and deaths and how many,
what day it's going to happen, and how many this or what do you
suppose? Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my
beautiful mind on something like that?"
~Barbara Bush

"I guess the 'nation's grandma' isn't the grandma of those her son sends into harm's way." ~Hekate

5. She/He should be on permanent IGNORE.
Edited on Sat Feb-21-04 02:53 AM by countmyvote4real
I change channels if she ever pops up. I know that I'm depriving myself of hilarious entertainment, but I don't think she's all that funny (in the comedy sense of the word.) She's just another media whore trying to make a score. Ignore her enough and she might go away.

The really sad thing is that I can't think of a way to reform her. She's stupid.

6. Ah, but first...
...there was Scott C. Smith on Coulter on Cleland.

From Monday!

I was outraged, too! But I don't have the circulation of The Nation.

Guess I'll go eat some worms...

9. Ann Coulter would look good in Military garb...
Iraq is definitely the best place for her. She is deep need of moulting her character.

19. The RW lives off of fear and delusion...
w/o those, it would crumble.

Coulter's screeching rants keep them happy; ignorance is bliss, these are some happy SOB's.

21. She is sick, sick, sick.
Seriously disturbed. This should tell every vet, every soldier about the true nature of people on the nutso right (who claim to support them.)

She HAS become what she claims to despise.

22. I am not sure you can equate Ms. Coulter with anyone's "true nature"
I think something dreadful happened to Ms. Coulter in her formative years to make her such a hateful, disgusting human being. Some people say she does her act for money; I simply don't like to think someone could go as low as she does without serious mental defects. The woman needs intensive therapy and probably liberal doses of medication.

20. Thanks for this post.
The real Cleland story is amazing.

I think they will slowly drown in their own shit.

23. Oh those days of sitting around the beer hall at Khe Sahn
How I miss them... I was in the same unit as Max Cleland and involved in the same operation, the relief of Khe Sahn,. I find it very offensive towards me also. Like Khe Sahn was a walk in the park. By the way there were No Beer Halls at Khe Sahn but Medivacs were flying out pretty much every hour. There is Never a Time when a grenade could be found just laying around anywhere Stateside. Only in combat could this have ever happened. Only in Combat.

24. Wasn't Khe Sahn one of the toughest battles in Viet Nam?
I saw a documentary about it a long time ago. It didn't look like a lot of fun.

25. It was a precurser to major battles ~ Tet
Edited on Sat Feb-21-04 02:19 PM by Bandit
It was a Marine encampment about three miles from the DMZ and the marines were under continuous bombardment for seventy three days. They rarely saw daylight during those days. Finally after more than two months of total inactivity the Brass decided they needed some relief. I happened to be assigned to Bravo Company 2nd of the 12th Cav ~ 1st Cav Div. and we were the unit picked to be the relief force. Max Cleland was also in this unit though I don't recall him and not sure what company he was with. Khe Sahn was surrounded by more than three complete regiments of NVA (North Vietnamese Army) conventionial troops. These were no Viet Cong they were uniformed conventionial soldiers with very modern armament and equipment. They even had tanks. When I got to Khe Sahn there were two burnt out tank hulks within three hundred meters of the perimeter. It was a lot of death and destruction but no Beer Halls.
