    I don't know about her personally, but I've never heard of her hanging people out to dry. I have read many of her books and enjoyed them all. If I had an opportunity to chat with her, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

    I have read her weekly updated internet page for several years, and watched some of her appearances on TV. I have not read any of her books, yet. I agree with some of what she says and a little not so much but her point of view is pretty conservative. She is religious but not preachy (Catholic, I believe). She is anti-abortion, pro-life.

    She is trained as a lawyer and comes from a well to do, well educated family where political discussions were the norm. She is very bright, and has a quick mind. Her attempts at comedy, in about every paragraph she writes and in nearly every sentence she speaks is often above my educated head. Her knowledge of things political is massive. Her recall of fact is tremendous. If she says it I have found it to be true but it may be biased towards the conservative view but still factual. I still enjoy her view point and consider it when forming my opinions of things political.

    If you tend towards conservatism she makes real sense. Yes, she profits from it but I think she does it because she believes in conservatism and wants to spread the word. She is so bright I am sure she could easily succeed in anything she wanted to. I think she enjoys presenting her points of view more than just the profit she gets from it all.

    Ann Coulter is OK!

    Coulter is the opposite of politically correct. Most, almost all public figures, conservatives included self-censor so as not to attract the ire of howling mob of self-righteous lefties. Coulter is not only not afraid of them but eagerly solicits their hatred. She is one of my favorites.

    She's a conservative goddess. ;) :D

    Very pro gun.

    Her site.

    She's the real deal. I believe that with Ann, what you see is what you get.
    What you hear on T.V. today is the same as you would read in her books 2 years ago or 2 years in the future.
    Her books make for a great read.

    I like Ann Coulter, too, although there r some things she says I don't agree with. If she's really Catholic we might be twins!:D She was at the Demoncratic Convention and called it the Spawn of Satan--words even truer than I had realized at the time. She says things rarely said in no uncertain terms that should be said. Naturally, the lunatic fringe (radical left) doesn't like her.

    I couldn't agree more !!!!!!

    She is probably on the top of my list of persons I listen to and try to get the facts from on any given political subject. :)

    She is the "SALT IN THE WOUND" to liberals. :D

    They fear and despize her so much,

    that they tried to say she's really a man,

    because she has a small Adam's Apple.

    She is the US female equivelent to Rush Limbaugh.


    One would be "Ill Advised" :eek:, to bad mouth her here on this forum.... ;)

    Comprendo..... :)

    She knows, and believes, what she is talking about. She has an acid flavoured wit. I liked her before I ever listened to her, just from the comments made about her, by people I didn't like.

    She is highly motivated, an ultra quick thinker, and has an incredible memory.

    I would be willing to bet, that if she played chess, she would be very good.

    Just a "bit outspoken"?:rolleyes:
    Don't try to water down the Jack we know.:p

    I like Ann. She says what's on her mind and has NO problems playing the BS card. She's not PC, and won't back down from anyone in a battle of words.

    She's hated by the left, much as Sarah Palin is. They seem to espouse the same principals.

    Palin/Coulter in 2012?:eek:

    hahahahaaa......;)

    Thanks for that folks

    i'll get back to the journo guy and say ok and pass on my numbers to the lady

    i know it'll cause flack either way , i just hope i dont come out looking like a evil bastard, as some in the news here have done in the past.

    not that i really care what folks think of me but when you try to represent certain interests like gun rights , free speech, unbiased edi\ucation etc , it just makes things even harder when folks have the preconceived ideas that the UN based press have rammed down thier throats.

    Bobitis, like the new avitar, good one..

    cheers

    I looked at more You Tube videos of her and I can't say I'm an admirer like before. She says a lot of inflammatory things and I think she does it to create contraversy. She has a Catholic father but doesn't identify herself with any particular sect or denomination.

    My sentiments exactly!
    I even told my wife if anything ever happened to her, I may have to make a play for Ms Colter.
    Ann is my kinda woman!
