Cometh the Blond Bombshell

June 15th, 2009


Warning for liberals — quotes from Ann Coulter follow!  Exposure to her thinking may make your head explode or at least cause severe psychological damage!

OK. Now we can proceed. I try to read political opinions from both ends of the spectrum — I sometimes even read Paul Krugman and George Will on the same day. It’s amazing how you can find intelligent thinking even among those you often disagree with.

Ann Coulter is something of a special case. I think she’s wrong about a lot of things, sometimes if only because of the extremes to which she’ll push a point. But she rarely fails to be entertaining and funny, and few political commentators can slice and dice the opposition the way she does.

From her most recent column (this time personalized for me):

Well, I’m glad that’s over! Now that our silver-tongued president has gone to Cairo to soothe Muslims’ hurt feelings, they love us again! Muslims in Pakistan expressed their appreciation for President Barack Obama’s speech by bombing a fancy hotel in Peshawar this week.

Operating on the liberal premise that what Arabs really respect is weakness, Obama listed, incorrectly, Muslims’ historical contributions to mankind, such as algebra (actually that was the ancient Babylonians), the compass (that was the Chinese), pens (the Chinese again) and medical discoveries (huh?).

But why be picky? All these inventions came in mighty handy on Sept. 11, 2001! Thanks, Muslims!!

Obama bravely told the Cairo audience that 9/11 was a very nasty thing for Muslims to do to us, but on the other hand, they are victims of colonization.

Except we didn’t colonize them. The French and the British did. So why are Arabs flying planes into our buildings and not the Arc de Triomphe? (And gosh, haven’t the Arabs done a lot with the Middle East since the French and the British left!)

In another sharks-to-kittens comparison, Obama said, “Now let me be clear, issues of women’s equality are by no means simply an issue for Islam.” No, he said, “the struggle for women’s equality continues in many aspects of American life.”

So on one hand, 12-year-old girls are stoned to death for the crime of being raped in Muslim countries. But on the other hand, we still don’t have enough female firefighters here in America. …

Obama also said that it was unfair that “some countries have weapons that others do not” and proclaimed that “any nation — including Iran — should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.”

Wait — how about us? If a fanatical holocaust denier with messianic delusions can have nuclear power, can’t the U.S. at least build one nuclear power plant every 30 years?

There’s more. If your head is still intact, read the whole column.

    As always Ms. Coulter does not beat around the bush. I agree with everything she said.
