Prosecute the torture.

Ann Coulter is a Complete Lunatic

I was gonna write about the SCHIP veto override, then I saw this at mediamatters.org.

For those who need a good reminder, some time ago, Ms Coulter, speaking for all Christians, said this to Donny Deutsch on CNBC:
[W]e just want Jews to be perfected, as they say.
You can read the rest of the interview here. There's more in the interview about how interracial couples in New York City...well you have to read it for all it's painstaking genetic subtlety:

COULTER:...You walk past a mixed-race couple in New York, and it's like they have a chip on their shoulder. They're just waiting for somebody to say something, as if anybody would. And --

DEUTSCH: I don't agree with that. I don't agree with that at all. Maybe you have the chip looking at them. I see a lot of interracial couples, and I don't see any more or less chips there either way. That's erroneous.

COULTER: No. In fact, there was an entire Seinfeld episode about Elaine and her boyfriend dating because they wanted to be a mixed-race couple, so you're lying.

DEUTSCH: Oh, because of some Seinfeld episode? OK.

For those keeping score at home, the Seinfeld episode she's referring to is, I believe, called "The Wizard" and it was first broadcast in late February, 1998. That's almost a decade ago. Nice that she's up on popular culture.

Anyway, she was on the radio recently with Michael Medved, who is both conservative and Jewish (and obviously not "perfected"). She tried to explain herself by saying:
And by the way, of course a Christian wants everyone to be a Christian. I assume all vegans think the world would be better if everyone were a vegan. And the global warming wackos would like everyone to believe in their crackpot global warming theory. And nonsmokers would like everyone not to smoke. I don't even go around passing laws, like Michael Bloomberg.
I just love the part about the "crackpot global warming theory." Anyway later on she said this about Judaism:
But Judaism, as I explained -- Christians accept the Old Testament. Jews don't accept the New Testament, so, you know, as long as we're playing this new sport of "he who is offended first wins," if anyone's going to be offended by anyone else's religion, the Jews believe that my savior, a Jew, was a raving lunatic, and you don't see me sniffling and crying.
Sniffling and crying (about any subject) might make her human.

John K. says: Most of the anti-Israel comments come from the left. Look at Jimmy Carter.

Most anuses have a head stuffed into them. Look at your ass.

John K. says: So now you lefties are telling me Jimmy Carter does not make disparaging statements towards Israel? Most lefties support Hamas and Hezbollah in their argument against Israel. That is a fact. Look at how many lefties rallied to the late Yasir Arafat. Lefty heads hiding from reality.

Ann Coulter is as much a performance artist as anything else. Her states are designed to shock or pander to her audience, depending on which side of the aisle they're on.

The problem is, of course, that shock value tends to wear off and one must constantly ratchet up the rhetoric. Personally, I can't get that angry at anything she has to say anymore. I just wind up shrugging and walking away. Perhaps this is a sign she has or is about to 'jump the shark.'

Carter calls for Israel to do right by Palestine. That says nothing about the behavior of Palestine. Blind support of Israel is not the same thing as continued support while also supporting negotiations and complaining about the behavior of both sides.

I guess John K thinks he can hide Ann Coulter behind Jimmy Carter. Even if Carter is wrong, does that excuse Coulter? And don't give me proportionality.

The problem with Coulter, to me, is that she sells books. Who are her readers, and do they actually agree with her?

John K. says: You lefties have to be some of the stupidest people in the world. Limbaugh has had over 1,000,000 million views on his 'Reid Letter". He has raised over 2.1 million dollars for charity. Then you had the Gen Petreuas ad which backfired. Now Sen. Reid is saying he could have had every Senator sign it. LOL LOL LOL LMAO Limbaugh took you out and ate your lunch. Coulter does the same thing. It is way too easy.

Two-thirds of Republicans and 90%+ of Dems, and 4 out of every 5 Americans say the surge is NOT helping. Only the Laughing Chickenhawk says it's working. I had two lunches today, John. How hungry are you? Bwahahahahaha!

Oh, you don't find that funny? Well, here's the kind of news that always sets you into gales of laughter: One American solder confirmed dead yesterday by DOD, another one today. Now, that's funny, right?

Speaking for a moment for all Jews everywhere:

1) Israel does not equal Judaism

2) We think it's adorable how some Christians trip over themselves to kiss our ass in order to appear "tolerant" of other faiths, simply because they can't deny that their faith is built upon ours. We Jews have absolutely zero interest in anybody else believing as we do, and find Christianist attempts to buddy up to us amusing. Joe Lieberman is using you just like you're trying to use him. You go ahead and do your thing, we'll do ours.

3) Illustrative scene from the Sopranos-

Wife of Hesch: You can disagree with the Evangelicals but they're great friends of the Jews because Israel is the Holy Land.

Hesch: You wait.

John K. says: I am on the floor laughing my butt off. Sen. Reid went to the floor of the Senate to try to take credit for the 2.1 million Limbaugh raised for charity. LOL LOL LOL Last week Reid wanted Limbaugh off the air. No whe wants credit for the e-bay letter. You lefties are total loons. I mean loony. Sen Reid, your leadership in the Senate, and you lefties wonder why you can't get anything done. LMAO

Cold cereal recipe for John Koward:

- 1 box of cereal
- 1 carton of milk, preferably skim, preferably organic [but not that Horizon crap, 'cause it's about as organic as gummy bears]
- 1 bowl, made of the material of your choice
- 1 spoon

Open cereal box. If inner bag sealed, carefully open by pinching the sides and gently pulling. Pour cereal into bowl until half-way full. Open milk. Pour into bowl until the cereal is mostly covered, but not drowning. This may take some practice.

Using a large spoon, scoop milk with bits of cereal in it and put in your mouth. Chew, swallow. Repeat until bowl is empty or you are full, whichever comes first.

Hope this is helpful. From your various rantings, it's clear that you may not be able to perform everyday duties. This way, you won't starve, and your other hand will be free while you listen to your BFF Druggie. I know that's an important time for you each day.

I am on the floor laughing my John K off. The Laughing Chickenhawk came on this blog saying the surge is working after being shown tragedy and American soldiers dying all over Iraq. And you Wingnuts wonder why you've lost the House and the Senate. This is just tooooo easy. ROFL LMJKO (laughing my John K off) LMLCO (laughing my Laughing Chickenhawk off).

Joh K. says: Yepper the surge is working. Not a peep about Iraq bombers on the lefty news outlets. They can't get pictures with their on air people in front of some puffs of smoke. LOL All those al queda people you folks said Bush recruited. We killed them. Wiped them out. Blew them away. Shot them dead. All those terrorists you lefties were counting on to win in Iraq. LMAO
But still, Sen Reid trying to tell people he was responsible for Limbaugh raising 2.1 million. You should have been there as we mocked you lefties and just made fun of how you act and how you think. It was a comedy show worthy of John Maher. Reid made you lefties look like fools. The surge made you lefties look like losers. I win!

Yea - keep thinking that.

So, what have we learned from John K. today?

Well, for one, he's unable to distinguish between anti-semitic statements and policy statements. A person who disagrees with the nation of Israel on matters of policy is not the same as a person who emphatically states that Jews need to be "perfected."

Two, liberal-pinko-commie-pacifists have no problem supporting groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. I suppose that makes sense to him.

Three, the war is really cool. It only took Republicans tens of thousands of dead innocent Iraqis, 4,000 dead Americans, 27,000 casualties, billions of dollars spent and missing, a ruined international reputation and 5 years to create an intractable conflict that even the military agrees has no military solution. But it's been a resounding success otherwise.

Remember kids: Every time a lefty blogger criticizes the President or the War, a soldier dies in Iraq.

Four, some guy named John Maher is really funny and apparently has a show. Maybe he's related to Bill...

Five, the only thing better than the Iraq War: Rush Limbaugh.

Anonymous said...

John K. says: That Olbermouth has serious issues. On the day that Limbaugh sticks it to Reid and raises 2.1 mil for a military charity, Olbermouth never mentioned it. And Matthews has to hold his nose while giving it all of ten seconds. You left wing kooks really keep some strange company. Can't even acknowledge success. But you can acknowledge Jimmy Carter a known Israeli basher and a guy who tends to support terrorists in their efforts. What a bunch of liars you are.

Anonymous said...

Ok, someone has to ask...

Hey, John K: Do you have a SOURCE of Carter's "Israel bashing" or his "support" of terrorists?

The coin of the realm here is evidence - let us know what your evidence is, NOT what you THINK about what you think the evidence is.

Until you do that, it's might be better for you to just take a time out and go sit in the corner for a while and let the grownups talk.

Schmuck Shitrock said...

Of course our Laughing Chickenhawk will neither shut up nor shell out. His purpose is not to inform nor persuade. His purpose is to irritate.

Fortunately for us, he is so bad at it that he merely entertains in the same sad way that the Three Stooges did -- mainly by hurting themselves.

As a Dem, a Jew, and a Zionist (not in any necessary order), I do have to ask myself the question of whether Ann Coulter is the most dangerous person toward Jews. If only were that the case, but, sad to say, that isn't. Even though John K is being a dick, he's right. Mearsheimer, Walt, and Jimmy Carter are much more dangerous, as the prestige of their positions (academic and political) give them a veneer of legitimacy while talking about "the Israel lobby", which, if you actually read what they say, means Jews period. Funny how we don't hear about the "Tibet lobby", the "Burma lobby", or the "Darfur lobby". Heck, even the "oil lobby", the "gun lobby", and even the "Saudi lobby" are ok by them. And after looking at a lot of posts on DKos last summer during the Second Lebanon War, I have come to the conclusion that there is a moral-relativity crisis within a wing of the Democratic Party.
